Pololu Wheel 90 mm × 10 mm – Black

These black plastic wheels have silicone tires and measure 90 mm (3.54 inches) in diameter, and they press-fit onto the 3mm D shafts on many of our motors, including our micro metal gearmotors and our mini plastic gearmotors. Additionally, this wheel is compatible with several of our universal mounting hubs, which can serve as adapters for motors with different shafts. Six mounting holes for #4 or M3 screws make it possible to use the wheel with any of our universal mounting hubs for those screw sizes, enabling these wheels to be used with our larger metal gearmotors and stepper motors. The included silicone tires, which feature horizontal treads for improved traction.

Pololu Ball Caster with 1 Inch Plastic Ball and Ball Bearings

This ball caster uses a 1 inch diameter plastic ball and has an overall height of 1.1 inches (29 mm). The two-part housing snaps together to securely enclose the ball and three ball bearings that minimize friction between the ball and the ABS housing.

This ball caster kit includes a two-part black ABS housing, a 1 inch diameter POM plastic ball, three 3 mm × 7 mm × 3 mm ball bearings, and three dowel pins used to hold the ball bearings. When assembled, the ball caster is capable of rolling in any direction with low friction, making it suitable for use as a third contact point for wheeled, differential-drive robots weighing up to around ten pounds.

The base piece of the housing has holes for three mounting screws and slots for ball bearings. The second part of the housing snaps into the base piece to secure the ball and ball bearings. The assembled ball caster has an overall height of 1.1 inches (29 mm).

Perforated Phenolic Plate

So you finish your electronics projects, such as printed circuits. We know that designing a prototype or electronic project can be a complicated task if you do not have the necessary items to carry it out, so with us you it a phenolic plates of a face, two sided or perforated, ferric chloride, auto-adherable tracks, leaves thermal transfer or permanent ink markers so that your circuits are perfect.

Steren Model 155

Bakelite phenolic plate with copper, 4.5 cm x 4.5 cm, engraved and perforated with 164 orifices for components and 4 for fixing the plate. Ideal for projects or prototypes.

Serial

Used for communication between the Arduino board and a computer or other devices. All Arduino boards have at least one serial port, and some have several. Fio v3 ATmega32U4 board, Serial1 pins, 0(RX), 1(TX). On Fio v3 ATmega32U4, pins 0 and 1 are used for communication with the computer. Connecting anything to these pins can interfere with that communication, including causing failed uploads to the board. You can use the Arduino environment’s built-in serial monitor to communicate with an Arduino board. Click the serial monitor button in the toolbar and select the same baud rate used in the call to begin(). Serial communication on pins TX/RX uses TTL logic levels 3.3V . Don’t connect these pins directly to an RS232 serial port, they operate at +/- 12V and can damage your Arduino board.
