DC 5V Waterproof Ultrasonic Module Distance Measuring Transducer Sensor (waterproof ultrasonic)
Description:

This waterproof ultrasonic distance sensor is for those applications that are a bit more rugged! 25cm - 450cm sensing range.

We have used the HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Distance Sensor many times  and for many good reasons. It is pretty easy to use, it performs well, and it is very inexpensive. For collision avoidance robots or intruder detection, this sensor is usually all you’ll need.

However, using the HC-SR04 outside is a different story. It is a pretty fragile device and can easily be damaged by dirt, or even high winds. And, above all, it is not waterproof.

For these circumstances you can use this sensor, in more weathered states, even outdoors

Application:

1 Horizontal distance;
2 obstacle avoidance, automatic control;
3 traffic control;
4 security, industrial control;
5 artificial intelligence, and research

Basic working principle:


(1) using IO port TRIG trigger location, to the high level signal of at least 10us;
(2) module automatically sends 8 40KHz pulse, automatic detecting whether a signal returns;
(3) on signal return, a high level is output through the IO port ECHO, the time duration of the high level is ultrasonic from launch to return. The test distance = (high level time * speed of sound (340M/S)) /2;

Recessed Door Window Contacts Reed Security Alarm Switch (5) (reed switch recessed(5))
No external power supply, connect to wired alarm control panel GND and N.C ports directly!

Description :

These door contact sensors are great for residential and hobby card access systems, as well as a security burglar alarm system. The door position switches operate with an internal magnetic reed switch that closes when the opposing magnet comes within range of the door sensor.
Hence when the door opens beyond the range point the door position switch will toggle from a closed signal to an open signal.
When this happens the access control system or alarm system will sense the change in continuity and will know that the door or window has been opened. When the door or window shuts, the door sensor will notify your security system that the opening has been closed.

SparkFun Logic Level Converter Bi-Directional (Sparkfun logic level converter )
Description:

If you’ve ever tried to connect a 3.3V device to a 5V system, you know what a challenge it can be. The SparkFun bi-directional logic level converter is a small device that safely steps down 5V signals to 3.3V AND steps up 3.3V to 5V at the same time.

This level converter also works with 2.8V and 1.8V devices. What really separates this Logic level converter from our previous versions is that you can successfully set your high and low voltages and step up and down between them safely on the same channel. Each level converter has the capability of converting 4 pins on the high side to 4 pins on the low side with two inputs and two outputs provided for each side.

The level converter is very easy to use. The board needs to be powered from the two voltages sources (high voltage and low voltage) that your system is using. High voltage (5V for example) to the ‘HV’ pin, low voltage (3.3V for example) to ‘LV’, and ground from the system to the ‘GND’ pin.

WS Logic Level Converter green 8 channel (WS logic level convert green)
Features
  • 8 channels bidirectional voltage translation between different logic level, translate between Ax and Bx automatically
  • 4 pairs of power supply interfaces, supports more situations
  • Use tantalum capacitors for power filter, provides more stability
  • Voltage level: 1.8V-6V
  • Dimension: 31.6mm x 25.4mm
How to Use

In the case of translating between 3.3V and 5V system:

  • VCCA/VA connects to 3.3V power supply
  • VCCB/VB connects to 5V power supply
  • GND connects to power negative pole respectively, the two power supply should be common-grounded with each other
  • When Ax has TTL 3.3V input, Bx will get TTL 5V output
  • When Bx has TTL 5V input, Ax will get TTL 3.3V output
  • NO direction control required
