New Product Roundup – November 18th to December 1st
It is hard to believe, but December is here already! Time for our weekly New Product Roundup and a quick overview at anything else new at BC Robotics.
The past few weeks have been incredibly busy with our Black Friday Sale and the general holiday ramp-up so we haven’t had the opportunity to add much in the way of new things to the site. So, this week we have just one new product to share: the Weller WE1010 Digital Soldering Station. This is Weller’s modern replacement for the incredibly popular WES51, and the perfect addition to any electronics enthusiast’s workbench!
Product Of The Week
Product of the week is our L298N Motor Driver Board – a dual full bridge high current motor driver. Safely drive your Steppers, DC motors, or other inductive loads with your microcontroller! The L298N Motor Driver Board is on sale for 15% Off until Friday at midnight!
Alright lets go have a quick look at the new WE1010; normal new product additions resume next week!
Weller WE1010 Soldering Station
The Weller WE1010 is a powerful new Digital Soldering Station. The WE1010 is rated at 70W – meaning heat up / recovery times are significantly reduced over previous models. The analog control knob has been replaced with digital controls – a large LCD screen displays the current tip temperature and the set temperature as well. Standby mode and auto set back conserve energy, and protect equipment when the iron is on, but not in use. These are ideal for commercial use and should stand up to years of heavy operation in a manufacturing setting without a sweat.

Using an Ultrasonic Distance Sensor With Arduino
In this tutorial we will be looking at how to use an Ultrasonic Sensor to measure distance using an Arduino. These sensors are generally inexpensive, fairly accurate, and not affected by lighting conditions like infrared based systems. We will be looking at three Ultrasonic sensors, these are all code compatible but require subtle changes in the wiring due to differing pinouts. Interested? Head on over to the tutorial!
