  • I did find the “M&M” sized connectors, but I had mis-remembered what they were. They are the 3M Scotchlok Insulation Displacement Connectors. Most versions of this really only function like a wire nut to tie several wires together, but don’t require you to strip the ends. There is one that will do a tap into a line,without having to cut the line, but I would need 3 of these.

    So, there may not be an easy solution like I was hoping to find.

  • I am looking for an easy way to connect a very large number of these. I recall seeing these small M&M Candy-sized connectors that would only do 2 or 3 connections. There were two sides, and there were small blades that would push through the insulation and make the electrical connection. You used a tool to crimp the two sides together. They were intended for land line connections. There were versions to splice in a drop line, and that would seem to be an ideal solution. But, now I can’t seem to find them.

  • Can this product be used as a wheel encoder? I realize it may not be designed for the durability normally required for a wheel enocder, but the most important question is if it can rotate continuously.

  • I visited the manufacturer’s site, and find that all the required software and documentation for the Uno are scattered around on various web pages.

    Is there perhaps a single place where I can download everything at once? In particular I would like an off-line source of documentation, rather than having to access it a page at a time on the internet.

No public wish lists :(
