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. Building Blocks plans to build a more integrated community for NXT Mindstorms users in this region.

    3rd Party Sensors

    dPressure Sensor

    The dPressure is a pressure sensor for the Lego NXT Mindstorms system capable of measuring up to 250 kPa (30 psi) and 500 kPa (70 psi) of pressure and gauge vacuum. The sensor comes with an adapter for Lego Pneumatic lines.

    The sensor is easy to use: it plugs directly into the NXT and users can be up and reading pressures in seconds.

    These pressure sensors can easily be incorporated into chemistry, engineering, and environmental experiments with NXT-G and Labview.

    Building Block's dPressure Sensor

    Technical Specifications
    The dPressure sensor comes in two versions:
    • The dPressure 250: Vacuum to 250 kPa (30 PSI)
    • The dPressure 500: Vacuum to 500 kPa (70 PSI)
    Both sensors measure differential pressure and have 1/8" ports.
    These analog sensors can measure down to 0.25 kPa (0.04 PSI) in pressure change and has a response time of 1 ms.


    • Pressure sensor for Mindstorms NXT
    • Plugs directly into your NXT sensor ports
    • Adapter for Lego Pneumatic kits included
    • Widest pressure range: 250 kPa (30 PSI) or 500 kPa (70 PSI)
    • Easily incorporated into datalogging experiments in chemistry, physics, and engineering
