Sup. It’s Friday, so that means we have some rad new gear for you. Check it out!
Stepper motors work really well with Actobotics channels. I encourage everyone that needs precise movement to try using steppers. If you want to learn a bit more about robotics and getting this moving, check out the Robotics 101 video series.
The PowerSwitch Tail is really the easiest way to control an AC-powered device with a microcontroller. Simply solder it together, add in some cords, and connect your microcontroller’s output to the screw terminals. Then you can switch on and off a monitor, pump, or any other load you need control over.
This is the day many of you have been waiting for: We now have stepper motor mounts for Actobotics. These come in three different sizes: NEMA14, NEMA17, and NEMA23. They connect to the Actobotics channels with either the 0.77" or 1.5" hole pattern.
Need an SMD button with a slightly taller activating area? These new SMD buttons have exactly that. We have them in a 6mm and 12mm size. These are very similar to the PTH variety and have a nice ‘click’ when you press them.
Lastly, a footprint change forced us to make a new revision of our SD/MMC Breakout. This is the same as the previous version, just with a new updated footprint for the socket. It allows you to gain access to all the pins from your SD card.
Well, that’s all I have for this week. As always, thanks for reading and watching. We’ll be back next week with even more new stuff, see you then.
