Welcome back to another New Product Roundup for Saturday December 5th. This week we have seven new products to share along with a new product of the week at 40% Off. A quick reminder: Many of our holiday shipping deadlines for the most economical shipping methods are approaching fast. For a complete list of recommended shipping dates please have a look at our Holiday Shipping Guidelines.


New Products This Week


Weather Meter – Mast & Hardware Kit


Need to mount a sensor or other device on a small mast? This mast kit is originally designed for our Weather Meters (Tipping Rain Gauge, Anemometer, and Wind Vane) but can be adapted to work with other things with just a little creativity. The mast kit includes two metal post sections measuring 30cm each, two types of mounting arms, extra long zip ties, two screw clamps, and hardware. The screw clamps can be used to mount this to an already in place post. Fully assembled this mast measures 64cm tall... [Read More]



Fine Tip Tweezers – ST10


As electronic components get smaller and smaller tweezers become more and more essential. These Anti-static and Anti-magnetic safe tweezers are great for working with small surface mount and through hole components. They don't strictly need to be used for electronic components; they also are great for building models and handling just about anything tiny. ... [Read More]



Official Raspberry Pi Mouse – Red


The Raspberry Pi Official Mouse is a standard, wired, 3 button optical mouse with scroll wheel. It is compatible with all versions of the Raspberry Pi (and anything else that accepts USB mice.). The mouse is ergonomic in design and comfortable to use - best of all it matches the Official Raspberry Pi Keyboard. . ... [Read More]



BME280 Temperature Humidity Pressure Sensor


Bosch has stepped up their game with their new BME280 sensor, an environmental sensor with temperature, barometric pressure and humidity. This sensor is great for all sorts of weather/environmental sensing and can even be used in both I2C and SPI. This precision sensor from Bosch is the best low-cost sensing solution for measuring humidity with ±3% accuracy, barometric pressure with ±1 hPa absolute accuracy, and temperature with ±1.0°C accuracy. Because pressure changes with altitude, and the pressure measurements are so good, you can also use it as an altimeter with ±1 meter or better accuracy. The BME280 is the next-generation of sensors from Bosch, and is the upgrade to the BMP085/BMP180/BMP183 - with a low altitude noise of 0.25m and the same fast conversion time. It has the same specifications, but can use either I2C or SPI... [Read More]



5mm Ultraviolet LED (400nm)


This Ultraviolet (400nm) 5mm LED emits UV “blacklight” and work well with florescent materials that react to blacklight. The forward voltage is 3.2V with a current consumption of 20mA. To use this LED you will need a current limiting resistor; this will vary depending on your input voltage. Typically with a 5V supply we recommend a 100 ohm resistor. Looking to mount these in a panel or enclosure? We carry a plastic and metal panel mount holder for these LEDs as well... [Read More]



Lock-style Solenoid – LY-03


This small solenoid is ideally suited for a door or cabinet lock. The metal slug is sprung and forced outwards when the solenoid is off and requires power to slide in. The slug itself has a sloped face, allowing doors to close and lock, but not open without powering the solenoid. The solenoid has 115mm / 4.5” wires terminated with a JST-PH connector... [Read More]



Adafruit LIS3DH Triple-Axis Accelerometer


The Adafruit LIS3DH breakout is a feature filled, low power, accelerometer that is configurable to several ranges of sensitivity. This accelerometer chipset is commonly found in a lot of commercial products so Adafruit has thrown together a convenient breakout board to test and experiment with it. The LIS3DH sensor has multiple data rate options ranging from 1Hz to 5Khz and has ±2g , ±4g , ±8g , or ±16g selectable scaling. The sensor communicates using I2C (2 address available) or SPI and is both 5V and 3.3V logic compatible... [Read More]
