New Product Roundup – October 28th to November 3rd

Happy Saturday Everyone! We are back with our weekly roundup of new products and, well, anything else that is new here at BC Robotics!

New Products
We have added four new products this week. Recently there have been a few requests for pliers with finer tips, so we now carry the Xcelite Long Nose Pliers – these have fine serrated jaws and work well getting into small places. We have also added a few basic bits and pieces including a pre-assembled JST-SM connector set, a new type of 3mm LED holder, and another 7 Segment Display (common cathode this time).

New Product Roundup – October 21st to October 27th

Happy Hallo-weekend! This week we don’t have anything particularly scary in our New Product Roundup, but we do have four new additions to the catalogue to talk about! We now have two incredibly tiny stepper motors – these are actually so small, they qualify for light packet shipping! We also have a new, more accurate, version of the very popular ultrasonic sensor and a larger alligator clip “grabber” kit for the SparkFun Third Hand.

New Product Roundup – October 14th to October 20th

It’s Saturday and we are back with our New Product Roundup for October 14 – 20th. This week the dominant news is the looming Canada Post Strike. Canada Post has reaffirmed they will remain open and operational despite rotating strikes by union employees. So what does this mean for you? At this time customers may experience minor delays in shipping. This will largely depend on your location and the timing of any day of rotating strikes in your region. If your order is time sensitive, we are able to ship via Purolator and FedEx, choose the courier option at the checkout.

Ok enough about shipping. We have added just a few new items to the catalogue. We have a 100 pack of smaller 4” zip ties to complement the 8” pack we added a few weeks back. We also have a new style opto-interrupter with mounting tabs for building wheel encoders, and a new Experiment Kit for the BBC micro:bit – this collection of accessories and components for the micro:bit allows you to pair it with a solderless breadboard and start using sensors, LEDs, motors, and more!
