Canada Post – Update

Naturally, the day after we post up a big explanation on how a possible strike may affect shipments – it is averted. For the time being it looks like both sides will remain at the negotiating table and any current threat of a strike has been avoided. All shipments will continue to process as per normal. So, if anything changes we will let you know!

Canada Post Update

As many of you may know: there is the possibility of a Canada Post Strike / Lockout as early as Thursday this week. At this time, 72 hour strike notice has not been filed, meaning we are at least 72 hours away from any possible job action. We are keeping a very close eye on the situation to minimize any issues with shipments.

So how does this affect you?

New Product Roundup – September 16th to September 22nd

This week we are back with four new products for our New Product Roundup! First, we have another new board designed and built here at BC Robotics – well it is sort of new anyways. For those that don’t need the fancy temperature compensated RTC on our Raspberry Pi Power + RTC HAT, we now have an RTC-less version available for powering your Pi. We also have 100’ rolls of 22AWG wire in Red and Black (because these two always run out faster than any other colors) and finally, we have made the box we use in our Arduino Experiment Kit available. These two layered boxes are ideal for carrying around your electronics, or keeping them organized.

Our Product Of The Week is our 1591B Proto Board – designed for use with Hammond 1591B Enclosures – 15% Off until Friday at Midnight!
