New Products This Week


Dip Switch – 5 Channel


A dip switch is really just a series of switches in a DIP (Dual Inline Pin) package. These can be used on breadboards and are a compact way to fit a bunch of switches in your project. Each switch is a standard single pole single throw On/Off switch capable of handing up to 24VDC and 25mA. ... [Read More]



128×64 Dot LCD – White on Blue


Looking for an upgrade from the popular 16x2 and 20x4 Character Displays? This fully graphical display has 128 x 64 dots and can display text or monochrome graphics. This ST7920 based LCD module is perfect for situations where graphics or a lot of text are needed on an easy to read display. This version is supported by the U8glib library for Arduino (link in resources below). The board has an integrated contrast trim pot installed on the back of the LCD Module – so it can be left out when wiring per most examples... [Read More]



Raspberry Pi VESA Mount


This VESA mount allows the Raspberry Pi A+/B+/2/3/3+/3A+ and all versions of the Pi 4 to be attached to the back of most monitors and smaller televisions. The mount is laser cut from 1/8” transparent acrylic with the Raspberry Pi’s 4 standard mounting holes and VESA mounting holes. The VESA mount fits both 75 x 75mm and 100 x 100mm standard VESA mounting holes. Included in the package are 4 screws, 4 nuts, and 4 round spacers for mounting the Pi... [Read More]



Aluminum Shaft Coupler – 2mm to 3mm


These small shaft couplers are ideal for connecting motors to driveshafts. The coupler has two set screws on each side to hold each shaft in place. This specific coupler is designed to fit a 2mm shaft on one side and 3mm on the other side. These couplers work well with our 3-6V Hobby Motor as well as our 2mm Diameter Shaft and 3mm Diameter Shaft. ... [Read More]



Load Cell – 1kg, Straight Bar (YZC-131)


This straight bar load cell (sometimes called a strain gauge) can translate up to 1kg of pressure (force) into an electrical signal. Each load cell is able to measure the electrical resistance that changes in response to, and proportional of, the strain (e.g. pressure or force) applied to the bar. With this gauge you will be able to tell just how heavy an object is, if an object’s weight changes over time, or if you simply need to sense the presence of an object by measuring strain or load applied to a surface. Each straight bar load cell is made from an aluminum-alloy and is capable of reading a capacity of 1kg... [Read More]



Mini Volt Meter – Blue (0-30V)


This mini volt gauge is similar to the two wire version we stock – with one key difference: it can be powered from a separate source from what it is monitoring. This allows the gauge to read right down to 0V without shutting off. To connect this gauge simply connect the Red wire to a positive pole on an external power source, the Black wire to the ground pole of the external power source and the ground of the circuit you are monitoring, and the Yellow wire to the point which you would like to measure voltage (see attached diagram). There are two tabs for mounting this gauge, we find they work quite well with M3 or 4/40 hardware. ... [Read More]



Stepper Motor – NEMA17 – 20oz.in


Stepper motors are great motors for position control. They can be found in desktop printers, plotters, 3d printers, CNC milling machines, and anything else requiring precise position control. Steppers are a special segment of brushless motors. They are purposely built for high-holding torque... [Read More]

Sending An Email With Attached Photo Using Python And The Raspberry Pi

We have already covered using a Raspberry Pi and Python to send an email containing basic text – but what if you wanted to attach a picture instead? In this tutorial we are going to adapt our code from our basic email tutorial to allow picture attachments to be sent. Interested? Head on over to the tutorial!
