PART FINDER FRIDAY – Thermistors! We were looking up some 10K thermistors and found these lug-attached bead thermistors. These seem like they’d be great for measuring surface temperatures, just thread them thru a small machine screw for semi-permanent attachment. The sensor is dunked in epoxy so its fairly weatherproof (but not meant for measuring liquid temperatures)…
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

Neat! I’ve seen these in teleco DC systems. They screw them on a battery terminal in the battery string for temperature compensation in the charger. I figured the rectifier, DC power systems manufactures built them.
