20×4 Character LCD for RepRap Ramps 1.4
This 20×4 LCD board is used with the RAMPS 1.4 3D printer controller. You simply connect the LCD to the RAMPS board. This control unit has a built in SD card reader, rotary encoder as well as a 20×4 LCD display.
5V 10A Switching Power Supply
This is a high quality AC to DC switching power adapter which gives a clean regulated 5VDC output at up to 10A. These adapter works with both 110 and 240VAC input, allowing them to work in any country! The barrel plug attached to these wall adapters are center positive with 2.1mm diameter.
ESP8266 Grove WiFi Module
UART WiFi is a serial transceiver module featuring the ubiquitous ESP8266 IoT SoC. With integrated TCP/IP protocol stack, this module lets your microcontroller interact with WiFi networks with only a few lines of code. Each ESP8266 module comes pre-programmed with an AT command set firmware, meaning you can send simple text commands to control the device. The SoC features integrated WEP, WPA/WPA2, TKIP, AES, and WAPI engines, can act as an access point with DHCP, can join existing WiFi networks and has configurable MAC and IP addresses.
MAX31855 Type K Thermocouple Amplifier
Thermocouples are very sensitive, requiring a good amplifier with a cold-compensation reference. The MAX31855K does everything for you, and can be easily interfaced with any microcontroller, even one without an analog input. This breakout board has the chip itself, a 3.3V regulator with 10uF bypass capacitors and level shifting circuitry, all assembled and tested. Comes with a 2 pin terminal block (for connecting to the thermocouple) and pin header (to plug into any breadboard or perfboard).
MMA7260 & LISY300 – 6 DOF Atomic IMU
The 6DOF Atomic is a stripped-down IMU, designed to give good performance. The unit can run as a hard-wired UART interface (0-3.3V, 115200bps), or optionally with an XBee RF module, and is powered from a single LiPo (Lithium Polymer) battery. The processor is an Atmel ATMega328 running at 10MHz with 6 dedicated 10-bit ADC channels reading the sensors. Source code for the 6DOF Atomic is freely available and compiles with the free AVR GCC compiler.
Type K Thermocouple
Thermocouples are best used for measuring temperatures that can go above 100 Degree C. This is a bare wires bead-probe which can measure air or surface temperatures. Most inexpensive thermocouples have a vinyl covering which can melt at around 200 Degree C, this one uses a fiberglass braid so it can be used in high temperature measurements such as heaters and ovens. There’s a small piece of heat shrink on the end to keep the fiberglass from fraying. If you’re using at >250 Degree C temperatures, simply remove it with a small blade.
EC3 Connector Set
These connectors are made from high-temp nylon with gold-plated spring pins or sockets molded in. The shape of this generic EC3 prevents reverse polarity, and when plugged in the connection is super-solid. Perfect for applications up to 65A continuous draw. Sold in pairs of 1 male and 1 female connector.
micro: bit Standard Board
The BBC micro: bit is a pocket-sized computer that lets you get creative with digital technology. Each order contains just the micro: bit board. You can code, customize and control your micro: bit from anywhere! You can use your micro: bit for all sorts of unique creations, from robots to musical instruments and more. At half the size of a credit card, you will be surprised at the amount of hardware each board is equipped with, including 25 red LED lights that can flash messages. There are two programmable buttons that can be used to control games or pause and skip songs on a playlist. The micro: bit can even detect motion and tell you which direction you re heading. It can also use Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to interact with other devices and the Internet.
Analog Feedback Servo Motor (1.6kg*cm)
You can read this wire with an analog input such as those on an Arduino, to get the servo’s position. That information can be used in robotics to improve stability or even allow ‘recording’ of servo motion. The dimensions of this analog feedback motor are 11.57 x 22.75 x 29.45mm. The operating voltage for this motor ranges between 4.8 to 6V. Servo horns and associated hardware are also included in the package.
20mm Piezo Element
Piezo elements come in handy when you need to detect vibration or a knock. You can use these for tap or knock sensors pretty easily by reading the voltage on the output. They can also be used for a very small audio transducer such as a buzzer.
8×2 Tiny Character I2C LCD
This is a breadboard friendly, 2.54mm pitch, I2C controlled 8×2 characters LCD board for 5V microcontroller. It has the pull-up resistors for I2C bus in it. It is the 2.54mm pitch, so you can plug in the breadboard and Arduino. The pin assignment is same as Arduino Uno Analog pins which are used for I2C connection. It has the pull-up resistors for I2C bus in it, so all you have to do is to solder pin header you want to use. However, please be aware that you may want to remove the resistors if you connect other I2C devices on the same bus.
14mm SPST Reed Switch
When the reed switch is exposed to a magnetic field, the two ferrous materials inside the switch pull together and the switch closes. These are normally open switches where the switch connects only when a magnetic field is present. This 14mm SPST reed switch is rated for 0.5A.
RFID/NFC Transparent Tag – 13.56MHz
This is a blank MiFare Classic ‘laundry’ tag – often used for laundry or identification but also found in other systems where a small proximity card is desired. This one is clear! The tag contains a NXP S50 chip and an antenna, and is passively powered by the reader/writer when placed a couple inches away.
