Deluxe Rear Bike Light Kit (KT deluxe bike kit)
Product Description

The Kitronik Deluxe Rear Bike Light Kit is easy to build kit and is an excellent way to learn about the very popular 555 timer IC. The kit uses four ultra bright LEDs that can be operated in two modes; constant and flashing.

A key design aim of the kit was that it should conform to all relevant British Standard measures. Both the flash rate and brightness conform to British Standards for vehicle road lighting (2005), making it ideal for use as a rear bike light. Alternatively, it can be used as a night safety product or flashing eyes.

During testing we connected the kit to 3 x AAA batteries and ran it continuously. At 80 hours of continuous use the LEDs were still lit at full brightness. After 107 hours, although still lit, the brightness had dropped below the level at which you would want to use them. So, we estimate that with brand new batteries you could comfortably run the light for 2 hours of daily commuting for at least an entire month with the LEDs still at full brightness.

Features:

  • An easy to build rear bike light project that conforms to British Standards for vehicle road lighting (2005) for both brightness and flash rate.
  • Learn about the very popular 555 timer IC.
  • The kit features 4 x bright LEDs.
  • It has two operating modes; continuous and flashing.

Kitronik Robotics Board for Raspberry Pi Pico (KT Robotics Board Pico)
Description:

Make the Raspberry Pi Pico the core of your new robotics project with the Kitronik Compact Robotics Board for Raspberry Pi Pico.

The Robotics Board features 2 Dual H Bridge Motor Driver ICs. These are capable of driving 2 standard motors or 1 stepper motor each, with full forward, reverse, and stop control. There are also 8 servo outputs, capable of driving standard and continuous rotation servos. They can all be controlled by the Pico using the I2C protocol, via a 16 channel driver IC. The IO break out provides connections to all the unused pins on the Pico. The 27 available I/O pins allow other devices, such as sensors or ZIP LEDs, to be added to the board.

Power is provided via either a terminal block or servo style connector. The supply is then controlled by an on/off power switch to the board and there is also a green LED to indicate when the board has power. The board then produces a regulated 3.3V supply which is fed into the 3V and GND connections to power the connected Pico. This removes the need to power the Pico separately. The 3V and GND pins are also broken out on the header, which means external devices can also be powered.

To use the robotics board, the Pico should be firmly inserted into the dual row pin socket on the board. Ensure the Pico is inserted with the USB connector at the same end as the power connectors on the robotics board. This will allow access to all of the board functions and each pin broken out.


Features :

  • A compact yet feature-packed board designed to sit at the heart of your Raspberry Pi Pico robotics projects.
  • The board can drive 4 motors (or 2 stepper motors), with full forward, reverse, and stop control, and 8 servos.
  • It also features 27 other I/O expansion points and Power and Ground connections.
  • The I2C communication lines are also broken out allowing other I2C compatible devices to be controlled.
  • Additionally, the board features an on/off switch and power status LED.
  • Power the board via either a terminal block or servo style connector.
  • The 3V and GND pins are broken out to solder pads, allowing external devices to be powered.
