September 2012

Dear Customers,

Due to the lack of availability of a number of components, RidgeSoft is no longer able to manufacture IntelliBrain controllers or robots. Our inventory of most products has been depleted. However, we do have inventory of several sensors and books that we are selling at inventory clearance prices, as listed below.

We thank our many customers for your continued loyalty in purchasing our products over the past ten years.

If you are interested in licensing the RoboJDE software or IntelliBrain designs for use in your own products please email sales@ridgesoft.com.

Regards,

The RidgeSoft Team

Roving Networks Serial Bluetooth Adapter Kit

Un-tether your robot with a Roving Networks Bluetooth serial cable replacement kit.

This kit includes everything you need to eliminate the bother of connecting a serial cable between your IntelliBrain-Bot educational robot and PC when programming or debugging. It also allows your robot to send data or debug information to your PC while it is operating.

These adapters use Bluetooth wireless technology to form a serial connection between a USB port on your PC and the serial port on your IntelliBrain-Bot educational robot.

We recommend these adapters for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux PCs. In most cases, there is no need to install a new driver.

Includes:

  • Roving Networks FirePlug Bluetooth USB Adapter (RN-USB-X)
  • Roving Networks FireFly Bluetooth Serial Adapter (RN-240M)

For documentation, technical support and technical specifications please visit the Roving Networks website.
