The EVAL-UFDC-1/UFDC-1M-16 is a simple evaluation board that allows users to quickly evaluate the performance  of the Universal Frequency-to-Digital Converters UFDC-1 and UFDC-1M-16 integrated circuits. All existing frequency, period, duty-cycle, time interval, pulse-width modulated, pulse number and phase-shift output sensors and transducers can be directly interfaced to this evaluation board. The user can connect sensors’ outputs to the Evaluation Board, measure any output frequency-time parameters, and test out the sensor systems functions. Dozens laboratory activities for Sensors Signal Conditioning, Measurements, Data Acquisition and Smart Sensors Systems Design courses can be setup based on only one Evaluation Board due to its multifunctionality. The Evaluation Board can be easy integrated into a remote laboratory environment for distance learning. Click <here> for details.


The Sensor Trainer ED-6800B  from ED Laboratory offers complete training opportunities on 16 most popular sensors available on the market. Due to the typical signal strength obtained from a sensor is not strong enough to be further processed, and quite often, the analog signals from a sensor are converted into digital signals, the trainer MED-6800B comes with two support units, Op Amp, and A/D and D/A converter units.

  • 16 different types of sensors

  • 7 experimental units

  • 2 support units OP Amp, signal converter



Electronic 500 in 1 Lab, MX909

CALS2000 - Computer Based Electronic Trainer

 Electronic Lab MX909

 CALS2000 - Computer Based Electronic Trainer

This Electronic Science Lab will teach you about electronics from A to Z. All this, while building up to 500 different projects. This kit uses two quick and easy hook-up methods: Spring Method: Simply slip pre-cut wires and components into special springs for a safe, secure connection. Breadboard Method: Featured in this advanced kit, this system is used by professionals and engineers. Just plug the components and wires into the special breadboard socket holes. No soldering is required. Everything uses battery power - no dangerous AC is required, so it's safe for all ages. Labs come with all components and wires needed to build each project. Fact-filled, illustrated, lab-style manual included. Click <here> for details.

The CALS-2000 is a patented revolutionary Computer Aided Learning System for your Windows-based computer that uses magnetic sockets to hold components on conductive paths! Just hook up your existing computer and printer to the CALS-2000 and you are on your way to learning circuit building and understanding how different components function. The computer’s audio system is used as an oscilloscope and spectrum analyzer. Other features include three-level logic-state indicators, speaker and earphone jack, 9 volt, 5 volt, and –9 volt DC power supplies, serial communication port. Over 500 experiments, including the construction of a complete AM radio station. Click <here> for details.

Modular Courses on Modern Sensors


An international educational project 'Sensor' has been approved by the European Commission in the framework of Leonardo da Vinci programme. During the next years, international partners from 8 countries will create educational materials of several expertise levels from university to apprenticeships and requalification of unemployed. An integral part of this project is the WWW-information system and sensor information database supposed to serve for distance-learning purposes.
