New Product Roundup – January 19th

It is Saturday, and time for another weekly New Product Roundup. Today, we have quite a few new products to share along with another new Product of The Week so let’s jump in and have a look!

New Products
This week we have added 6 new products to the catalogue. By popular request, we now carry the crimp on Dupont pins in male and female variations – so you can make your own cables to length! To further increase GT2 belt options we have A new, 200mm version, of the GT2 continuous timing belt.

Continuing with the robotics theme, we have also added another plastic gear set – this 15 piece kit has 15 small gears. To keep things cool we have a small, but powerful, 40mm 12V Squirrel Cage Blower. And finally, we have a 10K Linear Slide Potentiometer.

Product Of The Week
Product of the week is our 9-12VDC Double Ball Bearing Motor – This powerful “545” motor is perfect for larger projects running 9-12V DC. 15% Off until Friday at Midnight – so don’t miss out!

12V Squirrel Cage Blower – 40mm

If you need to move a lot of air in a small space without too much noise, these small blower fans work really well! The fan is also known as a “squirrel cage blower” and measures 40 x 40 x 20mm. Air is pulled from the 40 x 40mm face and blown out the side.

GT2 Closed Loop Belt – 200mm

This small drive belt is a great way to connect a motor to an output where direct drive isn’t possible. The belt measures 200mm in length and fits all standard GT2 pullies.

Dupont Male Square Connector – 10 Pack

DuPont style connectors are one of the most common when prototyping. These connectors feature square male pins and square female sockets along with 2.54mm pitch plastic housings. The male version of this connector fits into solderless breadboards, Arduino stacking headers, and many other applications.

Dupont Female Square Connector – 10 Pack

The female version of this connector fits into solderless breadboards, Raspberry Pi headers, and many other applications. The crimp pins are designed for wires sized between 22 and 28AWG and fit any of our DuPont housings.

Assorted Small Plastic Gear Set – 15 Pcs

This pack of 15 small gears can be used to create custom gearboxes to transfer motion, change output shaft speed, increase torque, and any number of other gear like functions. This kit has a great assortment of regular gears with several different bore sizes along with a couple worm gears with a bore of 2mm.

10K Slide Potentiometer

Slide potentiometers are found in all sorts of devices. These particular slide pots are rated at 10K ohm and 0.5W and feature ~55mm of travel. Unlike most, this slide potentiometer has two individual potentiometer circuits inside – useful for controlling two separate circuits with one piece of hardware!

New Tutorial!

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!
