Since 1993, we have developed a portfolio of award-winning products which have applications in Education, Industry and in the home. Our main ranges of products include:
Flowcode is one of the World’s most advanced graphical programming languages for microcontrollers which allows those with little experience to develop complex electronic systems. Flowcode is used extensively in both education and industry.
E-Blocks are small circuit boards each of which contains a block of electronics that you would typically find in an electronic or embedded system. We combine our E-Blocks with Flowcode, other software and curriculum to create a range of cutting edge technology rolutions for education and industry.
In 2008, Matrix acquired Locktronics, a range of products that simplifies the process of learning and teaching electricity and electronics. The expanding range now includes solutions for Electronics, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Automotive education. Locktronics has a wide range of customers from Primary schools up to universities, and is used in more than 10,000 schools world-wide.
Other products include:
MIAC - an industrial grade control unit which can be used to control a wide range of different electronic systems for control sensing, monitoring and automotive applications.
Formula Flowcode - a robot vehicle which is used to teach robotics, and to provide a platform for competing in robotics events.
Electronic Workstation - meets all your power and instrumentation needs for electronics education and prototyping in one self contained, easily portable unit.
ECIO - powerful USB programmable microcontrollers which offer a low cost option for students use at home, project work and building fully integrated embedded systems.
In 2012, Matrix acquired Automatics, a range of products that simplifies the process of teaching and learning about pneumatic systems.
Learning is at the heart of much of what our company does, and the philosophy of all Matrix learning products is based on ‘learning by doing’. Each year Matrix spends around 25% of turnover on research and development to ensure that our learning and development resources are world class.
With customers in more than 50 countries, and software in more than 20 languages, we are regarded as a premier global supplier of products for education and development.
