LEGO Sensors From Dexter Industries
Dexter Industries Header & Logo The lack of NXT Sensors in this region has led to the need to directly import and distribute these NXT Sensors from Dexter Industries. Working closely with Dexter Industries, we at Building Blocks will support users from the Asia Pacific region.

    Digital Compass Module
    The Dexter Industries dCompass is a compass sensor for LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT. This compact sensor detects magnetic fields for navigation. Using a magnetic sensor, the sensor is able to measure the earth's magnetic field and returns a magnetic heading, telling you which way your robot is heading.

    The device can be used without calibration and can be calibrated with software to account for magnetic fields to deliver a highly accurate compass heading.

    The sensor is supported in NXT-G, Labview, and RobotC.

    The sensor communicates with the NXT via I2C and can be placed on any port.
