New Product Roundup – August 24th

It’s the weekend again, and that means we are back with another update on new products, tutorials, and a new Product Of The Week!

New Products
This week we have four new products to talk about – first up is a giant four-blade propeller. These fit a 2mm shaft and measure 100mm in diameter. Perfect for making your dull DC motor a little more exciting to experiment with! Next we have a really cool Peltier Module – this module generates electricity based on a temperature differential between each side. If you have a situation where you can sandwich this between something hot and cold, it will generate quite a bit of power! Next, we have a new version of our Basic Tool Kit at a new lower price! And finally, we have a very common “PC Power Supply” cable – AKA an IEC-C13 to 5-15P cable.

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.
