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!

New Product Roundup – July 13th

Its Saturday, and with that, we are back with another New Product Roundup! We have five new products to showcase and a new Product of the Week at 25% Off.

New Products
First up we have another shaft coupler – this time with bores of 0.250” on one end and 5mm on the other. These are ideal for connecting our NEMA23 stepper motor to 5mm shafts. Next, we have a new board designed and built here at BC Robotics: our ultrasonic:bit! The ultrasonic:bit is designed to simplify the connection of an ultrasonic sensor to the BBC micro:bit. The board handles powering the sensor, logic level shifting, and ships fully assembled! Finally, we have three new toggle switches. These large switches have a strong throw and are available in DPST (On/Off), SPDT (On/Off/On), and DPDT (On/Off/On). All three versions are rated to 15A/125VAC and 10A/250VAC.
