The ACCESS:bit is a bolt-on/clip-on board for the BBC microbit that simulates an access barrier. It Includes a switch for turning the integrated 3xAAA battery supply on and off and also a buzzer for sound. The ACCESS:bit joins the family of transportation/pedestrian crossing micro:bit accessories, that also includes; the STOP:bit and LAMP:bit.

The ACCESS:bit is supplied with a single servo, a barrier, and all of the required fixings. Once the microbit has been fitted to the ACCESS:bit its LED matrix is fully visible and therefore can be used to display warning signals, stop/go symbols or as a light sensor for autonomous actions.

The ACCESS:bit has been designed to allow for connection to the micro:bit via the supplied M3 countersunk screws or via crocodile clips. For pinout information, please refer to the Datasheet.
