Flowol 4+ Supported Control Boxes


VEX IQ is a new powerful robotics system for all ages of students produced by Vex Robotics. The brain at the heart of the VEX IQ system is a very powerful ARM based microcontroller. The brain has 12 ports to which either sensors or motors can be connected. Flowol 4+ connects to the VEX IQ Brain via the USB cable. Programming and debugging with Flowol is first done in aconnectedmode where the flowchart is run on the computer, the sensors and motors operated in real-time on the device and the flowchart progress monitored on the computer screen. This makes it easy to see sensor values, pause and debug the flowchart logic and refine the program. The flowchart can then bedownloadedto the VEX IQ brain and your program can be run autonomously.

Flowol 4+ also supports connection to the VEX Cortex with a direct USB cable or over the wireless VEXnet connection with the VEX Joystick.


The FlowGo interface by Data Harvest is ideal for Primary or Secondary monitoring and control. It has 4 digital and 2 analogue inputs (calibrated sensors), 6 outputs and 2 motors with speed control. The FlowGo is connected to the computer via Serial or USB. Flowol 4+ can also download the users flowchart to the FlowGo to be run remotely.

Flowol also supports the older Contact Controller and Contact Controller Plus.

Commotion Coco

The CoCo Control Box is ideal for Primary or Secondary monitoring & control and datalogging. It is supported by Flowol Flowol 4+. The CoCo Control Box has 6 digital and 4 analogue inputs (with calibrated sensors) and 6 outputs and 4 motors with power control. Input and output devices are connected via standard 4mm sockets. The interface connects via USB.

Flowol 4+ also support the older Commotion CoCo USB Control Box with a metal case, and also the Commotion Serial Control Box.

Deltronics Interfaces

Flowol 4 supports the full range of Deltronics Interfaces. All input and output devices are connected to standard 4mm sockets.
