NEW PRODUCT – Micro HDMI to HDMI Cable – 2 meter. Connect an HDMI device with a micro HDMI port to one with a regular size HDMI port together with this basic HDMI cable. It has nice molded grips for easy installation, and is 2 meter long (about 6 feet). This is a HDMI 1.3 cable.
NEW PRODUCT – Hook-up Wire Spool Set – 22AWG Solid Core – 6 x 25 ft. Perfect for bread-boarding, free wiring, etc. This box contains 6 spools of solid-core wire. The wire is easy to solder to and when bent it keeps its shape pretty well. We like to have a few spools of this stuff around which is why this set is quite nice! We suggest picking up wire strippers to match. Wire gauge is 22 AWG which we’ve found is the best all-around gauge, it works best with breadboards and perfboards but also fits in terminal blocks nicely.
This box has a wooden dowel rod to hold the spools in place and let them spin, and there are little punch-outs you can pass the wire through so its it’ll stay nice organized.
UPDATED PRODUCT – Flexible USB Swivel Adapter. This flexible USB swivel adapter will extend your USB port out of the way. Useful when you want to attach a ‘bulky’ USB device without blocking a secondary port. We thought this would be handy for BeagleBone or Raspberry Pi users. Rotates 180 degrees in two axes, with a very nice solid construction.
We don’t really know what to call this thing – it’s got a 10 pin IDC cable on one end 6 inches of rainbow ribbon and tipped with 0.1″ female socket connectors on the ends. We think this would be handy as a 10-pin JTAG breakout adapter, or maybe some sort of cable re-arranger. Anyhow, it seems useful and we picked up a bunch.
Yeah we know it would be awesome if we could get a 6-pin version but the gray socket connector thing doesn’t come in anything smaller than 10 pins – we asked!
NEW PRODUCT – 4-pin JST SM Plug + Receptacle Cable Set – These 4-wire cables are 15cm long and come as a set, one side has a JST SM type connector plug on the end. The other side has a matching JST SM type receptacle connector. They are good for whenever you have 4 wires you want to be able to plug and unplug. We like the solid and compact nature of these connectors and the latch that keeps the cable from coming apart easily. For more information, check the JST SM connector datasheet
Our digital addressable LED strip and 12mm pixels also come with JST SM connectors and you can use these cables to connect to the input or output port
These cables can be used to connect to either the INPUT or OUTPUT port of our LPD8806 digital addressable LED strip or the INPUT or OUTPUT port of our WS2801 LED Pixels so that you can easily plug it into your Arduino or similar and also connect another strand to the output, or perhaps apply power to the ‘output’ end.
Each order receives one of each connector. We no longer sell these cables individually, instead get the pair for the same price!
Inside the plastic tube is a gold plated slip ring for 12 wires. There are 12 color coded wire sets made of 28 AWG and no matter how you twist the assembly, they will remain in continuity. Each of the wire sets can carry up to 2A at up to 240VAC or 240VDC. There’s a 44mm (1.7″) diameter flange with mounting holes to make it easy to attach or you can cut it off with a hacksaw and drill/machine as you wish it seems to just be ABS plastic. Rated to rotate up to 300 RPM (but you can probably go faster if you don’t mind a reduced life and/or noise).
Here’s a video of our six-connector slip ring, to show how it works inside:
Inside the miniature plastic tube is a gold plated slip ring for 12 wires. There are twelve color coded wire sets made of 28 AWG and no matter how you twist the assembly, they will remain in continuity. Each of the wire sets can carry up to 2A at up to 240VAC or 240VDC. This model is the tiniest slip ring you can get, a mere 20mm long, 12mm diameter. Rated to rotate up to 300 RPM (but you can probably go faster if you don’t mind a reduced life and/or noise).
NEW PRODUCT – JST-PH Battery Extension Cable – 500mm – By popular demand, we now have a handy extension cord for all of our JST-terminated battery packs (such as our LiIon/LiPoly and 3xAAA holders). One end has a JST-PH socket, and the other end has a matching plug. Between the two, 500mm of color coded wire. Handy for wearable projects where you may want the battery pack far from your Flora but useful in many other situations where you need a little more space.
NEW PRODUCT – USB OTG Host Cable – MicroB OTG male to A female – This cable looks like a USB micro cable but it isn’t! Instead of a USB A Plug, it has a USB A Socket on the end. This cable is designed for use with OTG (On the Go) host devices (like the Arduino Due or many tablets) so you can connect a mouse, keyboard, or any other USB device. You’ll still need to have drivers on the device, this cable is just a cable and contains no microcontroller or electronics inside.
NEW PRODUCT – Panel mount HDMI Cable – 40 cm. This panel mount extension cable will allow you to extend an HDMI connection and secure it to an enclosure. Perfect for placing your Raspberry Pi in a secure box. Two M3 screws are used to attach the female socket end, 1″/25.4mm apart. Two hex-screws are included and the hex nuts are embedded inside the molded end. Cable is 40cm long (about 16 inches). This is a HDMI 1.4 cable.
NEW PRODUCT – Small Alligator Clip Test Lead (set of 12). Connect this to that without soldering using these handy mini alligator clip test leads. 15″ cables with alligator clip on each end, color coded. You get 12 pieces in 6 colors. Strong and grippy, these always come in handy! We often use these in conjunction with a multimeter so we don’t have to hold the probes in place.
Compared to our Large alligator clip set, these clips are smaller and ‘pointier’
12 piece set, color coded vinyl covered alligator clips.
Contains two of each: Black, red, white, green, blue, and yellow.
