NEW PRODUCT – Micro Switch – Premium Zippy 3-Terminal
NEW PRODUCT – Micro Switch – Premium Zippy 3-Terminal. Micro-switches are often found in arcade buttons and joysticks but they’re also really handy in any kind of mechatronics project or when you need a basic sensor. They are always ‘tactile’ (clicky feeling), and ‘momentary’ (the switch closes when pressed, then snaps open once released). They come in a few different varieties (mostly having to do with the contacts and how big the actuator is).
This microswitch has a small bump actuator, but we also have kinds with a lever, roller lever and long wire. Compared to the other ‘generic’ micro-switches we carry, this one is higher quality and has better specifications. The switch has over 10 million actuation life and can switch up to 5 Amps at up to 250VAC! A great replacement for arcade controls.
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.
