New Product Roundup – August 17th

It is Saturday, and that means we are back with another edition of our New Product Roundup. This week we have six new products to share, a new tutorial, and a new product of the week – lets go have a look!

New Products
First up today is our USB3.0 to SATA adapter cable – this cable is perfect for connecting 2.5″ Hard Drives and Solid State Drives to your Raspberry Pi 4! Ideal for server and file storage applications on the Pi. Continuing with the Raspberry Pi theme, we have the official Raspberry Pi Power Supply for the Raspberry Pi 4. This power supply is rated to 5.1V / 3A and a USB C connector – simply plug it in and you are good to go! Want to use your older 5.25V / 2.5A Power supply with the Pi 4? We also have a USB Micro to USB C cable adapter available. To finish off our selection of Pi-related additions this week, we have the Official Raspberry Pi Keyboard in Raspberry Red / White with integrated USB Hub. Unrelated to the Pi, we also added a new 60mm Propeller / Fan for attaching to DC motors. And lastly, we added a two pack of motor brackets for mini gearmotors and small N30 motors.

New Product Roundup – August 10th

Happy Saturday! It was a short week here with the BC Day holiday last Monday – but we still have three new additions to showcase and a new product of the week for today’s New Product Roundup. Lets get to it!

New Products
First up today we have a small 2-axis analog joystick – these are similar to the type found in most modern video game controllers. Simply read each axis using an available analog input on your microcontroller and you have a precise, simple input system for controlling a robot, an arm, or even a cursor on a screen! Next up, we have a 80mm propeller is similar to those found on small toy airplanes. These fit on a 2mm shaft and are compatible with most DC motors we stock. Finally, sticking with the propeller theme we have a 2 pack of powerful N30 motors and propellers. These are rated to 3.7V / 25000 RPM and feature left and right blade propellers.

New Product Roundup – August 3rd

Welcome back to a holiday weekend edition of our New Product Roundup! Just three new products to share this week, but before we jump into that, first a quick reminder: We are closed on Monday for the BC Day holiday. The showroom is open today until 4PM – so feel free to drop by and grab last minute long weekend project supplies!

New Products
Starting off this week, we added another type of small workstation mat. This is a bit different as it has a static safe work environment on one side and a heat resistant surface on the other side – ideal for repairs and rework! Next up, we have another type of heat shrink kit – this 127 piece kit ranges from 1/16” to 1/2″ and has a nice plastic carrying case. Finally, we have a Blue version of the 6V variation of 16mm panel mount On/Off pushbuttons.

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 Products
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.

New Product Roundup – July 20th

It’s Saturday and that means we are back with another New Product Roundup! This week we have four new items in the catalogue and a new product of the week at 25% Off.

New Products
New to the catalogue this week: We start off with the replacement tip for the Xytronic LF-2900 Soldering Iron. We brought in a ton of these industrial grade soldering irons at a great discount – and there are a few left. So if you are looking for a new soldering iron – be sure to check it out! Sticking with the soldering theme, we also have a new Soldering Aid Kit – this set of 6 dual purpose tools features scrapers, trace cutters, parts pullers and just about everything you need for parts replacement, basic circuit board modification, and repair. Next up, we have another odd-ball product – the 220V version of our Hot Air Rework Station. These were shipped to us instead of the 110V Version by mistake. So if you have a 110V to 220V converter or happen to live where 220V is the norm – we have these on at a great price! And, finally, we have 18AWG Magnet Wire in 32’ spools. These are great for making your own coils, electromagnets, etc. If you have a suggestion for a product you think we should carry, always feel free to get in touch via the contact form on our contact page!
