Buy FischerTechnik Profi Kits

Updated on April 22, 2010

FischerTechnik is a German company that sells construction sets that compete with the Lego Mindstorms line. FischerTechnik kits are very high quality construction sets, and these construction sets are not only comparable to those of Lego but are often considered superior. FischerTechnik has an especially strong following amongst educators and is very common and popular in schools

Lego's several years of marketing push of the Mindstorms line has created a big market for robotic construction sets and FischerTechnik are a quality player in the market.

The company is a German manufacturer of fasteners, and the original FischerTechnik set was intended as a Christmas novelty gift for engineers and buyers at industrial clients in 1964. The gifts were so popular that by Christmas 1965, the company had introduced its first building set for retail sale in Germany and the rest is history. The early sets were sophisticated and were often used by engineers to teach and simulate industrial robotics. This use was later enhanced with the addition of electrical and electronic components such as microswitches, magnetic-sensing reed switches, and photocells, which sensed position and provided input to motors.

Lego Mindstorms products followed the lead set by FischerTechnik into sensing and process control, although the Lego products never acquired quite the technical and flexibility level of the FischerTechnik. However, the Lego Mindstorms NXT introduced in 2006 did finally surpass FischerTechnik in some technical features, such as color recognition but by early 2010, FischerTechnik had introduced the ROBO TX Explorer kit, which includes a color sensor.

FischerTechnik supply kits of all different complexities from Junior Kits, for 5 year olds, to Advanced Kits, for 7 and up, to Computing Kits, for 10 years and up, right up to kits designed for Industry. This hub will concentrate on the Profi Kits aimed at 9 years and up.
