HOW TO USE

THE BASICS

Control your Bits remotely with the wireless transmitter and receiver. To do this, you need to make two separate circuits, one to transmit the signal and one to receive it. The wireless transmitter and receiver need each other to work, and they both need power. The Bits can communicate a signal up to a distance of about 100 feet indoors!W2

 

BITSNAP CORRELATION  

The three bitSnaps (labeled 1, 2, and 3) on the both the transmitter and receiver correspond to each other. For example, if you send a signal through bitSnap 1 on the transmitter circuit, the output connected to bitSnap 1 on the receiver circuit will send out that same signal.

TRANSMISSION CHANNELS

The wireless Bits are also able to communicate on five different transmission channels, like a walkie talkie. To change the channel, press the button on the board and choose a,b,c,d or e. Both the wireless transmitter and receiver need to be set to the same channel in order to talk to each other.

USING MULTIPLE WIRELESS BITS

The five transmission channels allow for multiple transmitter/receiver pairs to be used in the same vicinity. Multiple wireless receivers can be used with a single wireless transmitter if they’re on the same transmission channel. However, only one wireless transmitter can be used within the same proximity of another wireless transmitter.

ROUTING POWER TO YOUR WIRELESS TRANSMITTER

The wireless transmitter has 3 input bitSnaps. You need to supply power to any bitSnap that you want to transmit a signal through. You can do this in a number of ways. You can use forks, branches, or splits to supply direct power to these bitSnaps or try using a powerSnap to reroute power through your circuit.
