IR Break Beam Sensor – 5mm LED


This IR break beam sensor works by detecting an object breaking a beam of IR light. This particular sensor has a range of up to 50 cm / 20". You can power it from 3.3V or 5V, but 5V will get you better range and is what we suggest. The receiver is open collector transistor output which means that you do need a pull up resistor if you want to read a digital signal off the signal wire... [Read More]

Anemometer – Wind Speed Sensor


This anemometer is the same sensor found in our Weather Meters set and can be used as a replacement part or as a stand-alone unit. These high quality weather proof sensors measure wind speed with a magnet and a reed switch. A wind speed of 2.4km/h (1.492 MPH) causes the switch to close once per second. The anemometer has a short cable terminated with a 6P2C RJ11 connector. This normally plugs into its companion wind vane – but it can also be connected to an RJ11 Breakout Board and hooked up on its own... [Read More]



Raspberry Pi 4 Case – Black


This case is designed to fit the all-new Raspberry Pi 4. It works with all three variations of the Pi 4 and provides a decent amount of ventilation. The case is comprised of three pieces – a base, midsection, and a lid. With the lid removed, there is also a small slot that the camera can be slid into... [Read More]



RJ15 Breakout Board


Cable terminated with an RJ11 can be quite hard to work with. The narrow pins are very hard to make contact with on their own and the mating connectors are not breadboard compatible. This RJ11 breakout solves the problem! The simple board breaks out all 6 conductors to a breadboard compatible header. This board is ideal for our Weather Meters and can be used to connect these sensors to breadboards and perfboards with ease! Each breakout board ships with the RJ11 connector soldered in place and a small chunk of breakaway header that can be soldered on if desired.... [Read More]
