We now have a brand new lineup of stepper motors for sale. Each one has a rear shaft exposed that is compatible with the HKT22 Optical Encoder.

We have a new line of strain gauges for sale. These sensors behave like load cells, measuring force on a piece of metal- but they can be attached directly to an aluminum or steel surface. This is the product you want if the structure you're testing can't be measured easily with ordinary load cells.

• Deals with 1046 bug in v100 and v101 firmware:
- No longer reports bad values that appear right after a channel is enabled.
- Fixes issue where changing the gain while channel 0 is disabled would sometimes cause bad readings.

• Fixed a defect in the Flash examples for the 1012.


We've got three new solid state relays available, for when you need to switch high-power circuits safely and silently from the digital output on your InterfaceKit.

We've added a clearance sale category to the navigation bar so you can keep on top of our biggest sales! Check back regularly for new deals.
