It’s Saturday and that means we are back with another New Product Roundup! This week we have five new items in the catalogue, a new tutorial, and a new Product Of The Week with 50% Off! Let’s go have a look!
New to the catalogue this week: We have a giant anodized aluminum heatsink measuring 40x40mm. Coincidently these are the exact same size as our Peltier elements – naturally, we had a bit of fun with fans and heatsinks seeing just how cold we could get a Peltier to go. In the Arduino category we released a new prototyping board for the Arduino Mega family of boards – the DevMega is designed here at BC Robotics and is a combination of solderable breadboard / Arduino Mega shield with a few solder jumpers to make things easier. Next up, was a snappy round On/Off button – these latching buttons are similar to the type you find in large flashlights and have large solderable tabs. We also added a new GT2 Idler Pulley – these have press fit bearings and are ideal for belt tensioners and idlers. Finally, we now have a 3 x 18650 battery pack. These take 18650 lithium batteries and connect three in series to provide a voltage of approximately 11.1V
