This page will show you how to wire up a Powerswitch Tail to a Floor Mat Switch. This will allow you to control 120v AC devices (up to 15A) froma Floor Mat Switch.
This kit will allow direct control of an AC device. You will not be able to set delays, timings, or any other behavior - when the matt is pressed, the load will be activated. For examples of using the floor mat switch or powertail switch with a microcontroller, see out Halloween How-To guide.
Projects Part List
The RobotGeek Floor Switch Tail Kit comes with everything you need for this project.
You will need to solder extensions onto yout pigtail lead, then solder 2 wires onto your Floor Mat Switch as shown below.
Floor Mat Switch Soldering Video
PC Control These demos and projects allow the robot to be controlled via a computer.
ArbotiX Commander Control - These demos and projects control the Robot using the ArbotiX Commander, the handheld Arduino based remote control.
Direct Control - These demos and projects control the Robot directly from sensors connected directly to the Robot's control board.
Pose Control - These demos and projects allow you to create and playback a sequence of poses.
Serial Control - These demos and projects control the robot using a serial packet protocol.
Standalone - These demos and projects are deisgned to let your robot function without a computer or additional microcontroller.
Wireless Control - These demos and projects allow you to control the robot wirelessly - usually by replacing the Serial Connection with XBee modules.
Reference - These articles have technical details regarding the control and operation of the robot.
