New Product Roundup – May 18th

Welcome back to a holiday weekend edition of our New Product Roundup! This week we added several new products to go over, but first a quick reminder: We are closed on Monday for the Victoria Day holiday.

New Products
This week we have 8 new products to share! First up we have another version of momentary tactile button with removable cap. This version is also breadboard compatible and features a square button cap. Next up we added four different versions of a nice On/Off 16mm backlit pushbutton. These are IP65 and latch on/off. We also added two new Dupont connector housings – a 6 pin and 8 pin version for more custom cable creation. And lastly, a 4 x 18650 battery holder. This battery holder connects each battery in series and provides a nominal voltage of 14.8V

New Product Roundup – May 11th

It’s Saturday and that means we are back with another New Product Roundup! This week we have five new items in the catalogue, a new tutorial, and a new Product Of The Week with 50% Off! Let’s go have a look!

New Products
New to the catalogue this week: We have a giant anodized aluminum heatsink measuring 40x40mm. Coincidently these are the exact same size as our Peltier elements – naturally, we had a bit of fun with fans and heatsinks seeing just how cold we could get a Peltier to go. In the Arduino category we released a new prototyping board for the Arduino Mega family of boards – the DevMega is designed here at BC Robotics and is a combination of solderable breadboard / Arduino Mega shield with a few solder jumpers to make things easier. Next up, was a snappy round On/Off button – these latching buttons are similar to the type you find in large flashlights and have large solderable tabs. We also added a new GT2 Idler Pulley – these have press fit bearings and are ideal for belt tensioners and idlers. Finally, we now have a 3 x 18650 battery pack. These take 18650 lithium batteries and connect three in series to provide a voltage of approximately 11.1V

New Tutorial: Raspberry Pi Irrigation – Part 3

Part three of our Raspberry Pi Irrigation tutorial is now up! In this tutorial we are going to figure out how to write a program that will run our sprinklers, monitor a few of our sensors, and email us once it has finished running. We will also figure out how to schedule this program so it only runs when we want it to – what good would a sprinkler system be if it can’t follow your watering schedule! Interested? Head on over to the tutorial!

New Product Roundup – May 4th

Happy Saturday everyone – we are back with another edition of our New Product Roundup! This week we have 6 new products, exciting news about changes to our Product of the Week promotion and, of course, a reminder that our $2.00 Light Packet shipping is back for the entire month of May!

New to the Catalogue:
Starting off this week, we have two more mid-sized DC gearmotors. These are now available in 60RPM and 620RPM versions. They feature M3 mounting screws and the same output shaft as the 12RPM we released last week. We also added a handy set of trim pots – 100 pieces with 10 different values. Next up we have a new CDS photocell – perfect for light detecting projects and basic light level sensing. Adding to our collection of Dupont connector housings – we now have 5 pin versions available for building custom connectors and cable assemblies. And finally, we have a colorful breadboard friendly button pack. These buttons are momentary with detachable button caps.
