Welcome to 2015! We have some new stuff to ring in the new year.Favorited Favorite 0
Welcome to 2015! We hope this year will be a big one for new cool products. We have a lot of plans for new tutorials, demos, and more. This week we’re a little short-staffed with the holiday season, but we still have a few new products for you. Check it out!
The rotary switches are yet another product suggestion that came from our customers (that’s YOU!). Keep the suggestions coming. Use the “What’s on your mind?” form at the bottom of the page to let us know what you’d like to see us carry.
Rotary switches make it easy to switch between different resistor values or other configurations. The 10-position rotary switch has a nice click to each position and can handle a decent amount of current. You can wire directly to the pins, or use the breakout board below.
The breakout board works with the 10-position rotary switch picture above. It has 4 mounting holes, and a 0.1" spaced row of holes for connecting to headers.
Want to know how to use an electronic component? Volume 2 of the Encyclopedia of Components includes key information on electronics parts for your projects – complete with photographs, schematics, and diagrams. You’ll learn what each one does, how it works, why it’s useful, and what variants exist.
We have a lot of new standoffs this week. These are 6-32 aluminum standoffs that come in packs of 4. Although they are made to be used with the Actobotics product line, you can use them with anything you want, we don’t judge. Check out the standoff category for our entire selection.
That’s all I have for this week. I hope 2015 treats you well and we’ll be back next week with more new stuff. See you then!
