Welcome back loyal fans. Not only do we have some new products, but we also have some videos for you. Enjoy.
Be sure to check out the multimeter written tutorial if you need to know more about multimeters.
If you're gonna be tinkering around with electronics, chances are you're going to need a multimeter. Our basic multimeter is great for most beginners, but if you need more advanced options, you might want to check out the auto-ranging multimeter. In addition to being an auto-ranging meter, it also adds a temperature probe, a hold button, min/max, capacitance, and more. You can even connect it to your computer and log data with the software.
Usually when you talk to electronics, you don't expect them to respond in any meaningful way, but with the EasyVR Shield, they can do exactly that. EasyVR 3.0 is a multi-purpose speech recognition module designed to add versatile, robust and cost effective speech and voice recognition capabilities to virtually any application. EasyVR is the third generation version of the successful VRbot module and builds on the features and functionality of its predecessor.
The rotary switch potentiometer breakout is a small board the allows you to add resistors to a 10-position rotary switch, turning it into a potentiometer with 10 discrete steps. Multiple applications require potentiometers that are hard to find due to specific resistance values or custom tapers, the rotary switch potentiometer board allows you to populate your own resistors to help match situations where ordinary parts aren’t available or suitable.
Lastly, we have a RJ45 MagJack. This one has the PoE (power over Ethernet) pins, so you can use your network to power your device. Inside each RJ45 are a number of transformers and magnetics required for isolating Ethernet signals. There are even some LEDs poking out the end.
That's all I have for this week. Thanks for reading, watching and all that good stuff. See you next week with even more new products and videos.
