  • CHF19.95

    Magnet mount antenna for GPS modules operating at 3V.

    Designed for used with automobiles - the magnet will hold the antenna in place at speeds greater than 100mph.

    5meter cable terminated with MCX connector.

  • CHF9.95

    This sensor is a carrier/breakout board for the ST L3GD20 three-axis gyroscope, which measures the angular rates of rotation about the roll (X), pitch (Y), and yaw (Z) axes. Angular velocity measurements with a configurable range of ±250°/s, ±500°/s, or ±2000°/s can be read through a digital I²C or SPI interface. The board has a 3.3 V linear regulator and integrated level-shifters that allow it to work over an input voltage range of 2.5–5.5 V, and the 0.1″ pin spacing makes it easy to use with standard solderless breadboards and 0.1″ perfboards.

  • CHF5.95

    The QTR-L-1A reflectance sensor incorporates a right-angle infrared LED and a right-angle phototransistor in an inexpensive, tiny 0.35″ × 0.3″ module that can be mounted almost anywhere and is great for edge detection and line following.

    The reflectance measurement is output as an analog voltage.

    This sensor is sold in packs of two units.

  • CHF14.95

    Magnet mount antenna for GPS modules operating at 3V.

    Designed for use with automobiles - the magnet will hold the antenna in place at speeds greater than 100mph.

    5 meter cable terminated with standard male SMA connector.

  • CHF12.95

    The LSM6DS33 combines a digital 3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis gyroscope into a single package.

    The sensor provides six independent acceleration and rotation rate readings whose sensitivities can be set in the ranges of ±2 g to ±16 g and ±125°/s to ±2000°/s, available through I²C and SPI interfaces. This LSM6DS33 carrier board includes a 3.3 V voltage regulator and integrated level shifters that allow operation from 2.5 to 5.5 V, and the 0.1″ pin spacing makes it easy to use with standard solderless breadboards and 0.1″ perfboards.

    The passive infrared (PIR) motion sensor detects movement of infrared light sources with wavelengths ranging from 7 μm to 14 μm. Since people emit infrared radiation from 8 μm to 14 μm, this an excellent sensor for detecting human movement. Two infrared detector “pixels” allow the detector to filter out changes affecting the whole sensing area, like weather or light.

  • CHF49.95

    This ultrasonic (sonar) range finder features real-time automatic calibration and noise rejection resulting in virtually noise-free distance readings even in environments with changing acoustic and electrical noise. The sensor detects objects from 0 to 7.65 m (25 ft) and has a resolution of 1 cm (0.4") for distances beyond 20 cm (8"). The XL-MaxSonar works from 3.3 to 5V and peaks at only 0.5 W of power consumption.

  • CHF7.95

    This module features a fixed-gain, 38 kHz modulated IR sensor and a corresponding IR LED with oscillator circuit to make a tiny proximity sensor. This low-brightness version draws an average of 8 mA at 5 V and has a typical sensing range up to approximately 12 inches (30 cm).

  • CHF7.95

    When the future is dazzlingly-bright, this ultra-high-range luminosity sensor will help you measure it. The TSL2591 luminosity sensor is an advanced digital light sensor, ideal for use in a wide range of light situations. Compared to low cost CdS cells, this sensor is more precise, allowing for exact lux calculations and can be configured for different gain/timing ranges to detect light ranges from 188 uLux up to 88,000 Lux on the fly.

  • CHF39.95

    Bosch is the first company to get things right by taking a MEMS accelerometer, magnetometer and gyroscope and putting them on a single die with a high speed ARM Cortex-M0 based processor to digest all the sensor data, abstract the sensor fusion and real time requirements away, and spit out data you can use in quaternions, Euler angles or vectors.

  • CHF21.95

    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!

  • CHF17.25

    This is a three axis accelerometer for the LilyPad system. Based on the ADXL335 MEMS accelerometer from Analog Devices, the LilyPad Accelerometer can detect joint movement as well as inclination and vibration.
