New Product Roundup – July 27th
It’s Saturday and that means we are back with another New Product Roundup! This week we have five new items in the catalogue and a new Product Of The Week with 50% Off! Let’s go have a look!
New to the catalogue this week: We have a blue version of our 9-24V Panel Mount On/Off button. These are weather resistant and feature independent lighting and switching circuits. Next up, we have a 125 piece grommet set – grommets are vital when running wire through panels and ensure wires are not chafed on sharp metal or other materials. This kit has 18 different styles and comes in a handy carrying case. We also added a new 40mm Marine Propeller – these plastic propellers have a 2mm shaft bore and work with most small hobby motors. Adding to the different styles of magnet we carry, we now have a smaller diameter / thickness Neodymium magnet. Finally, you can never have enough different enclosures – we now have another size enclosure for electronics projects.

16mm Panel Mount On/Off – 9-24V Blue LED
These chrome-plated metal power buttons are rugged and look great! Simply drill a 16mm hole into any material up to 13mm / ~1/2″ thick and you can fit these in place. The button is IP65 rated and there's even a rubber gasket to keep water out of the enclosure. On the front of the button is a flat metal actuator, surrounded by a backlit plastic LED ring and inset power logo. On the back there are 3 contacts for the button (common, normally-open and normally-closed) and 2 for the backlight ring (+ and -). The contacts are compatible with our 1/8″ Quick Connects or can be directly soldered to.
Grommet Assortment Kit – 125 Pieces
Grommets are one of those things that really help finish a project. Whenever passing wire through a panel where sharp edges or metal might cause a short, these are the solution. The 125 piece kit includes 11 different sizes of grommet along with 7 types of solid grommet. The solid grommets are handy for filling holes where cables are no longer required or for making custom inner diameter holes.
40mm Marine Propeller – Black
This Three Blade 40mm “Marine” propeller is designed for use in water. Use it for a thruster on your next ROV or a prop on a small autonomous boat. This propeller is designed to fit on a 2mm shaft and will work with most small DC hobby motors.
8mm x 3mm Rare Earth Magnet
Strong magnets can be very useful when working with reed switches, hall effect sensors, and other electronics projects. These “Rare Earth” magnets are made from Neodymium Iron Boron and measure 8mm in diameter and 3mm thick.
Grey Plastic Project Enclosure – 123 x 58 x 41mm
This is a simple grey enclosure suitable for any small project. The case is not waterproof, but is sufficient for protected your project from dust and splashing water. The case measure 123.83mm x 58.74mm and 41.28mm in height and includes the 4 screws for the lid. These are ideal for small Arduino or other electronics based projects and happen to be just wide enough to fit the standard boards!
