Muscle Wire


Muscle Wire 150um dia 1m 180-752

Muscle Wires are thin strands of a nickel tritium alloy called flexion – it is a type of shape memory. At room temperature the wire is easily stretched by a small force. When they are heated by an electric current they return they return to the pre-stretched size, contracting with a usable amount of force. Could be used for a light-weight actuators and power switches requiring low voltages that can be used in conjunction with control boxes.

An example of this includes the Basic Lever Arm. When you press the switch it lets the power through the muscle wire, heating it causing it to contact and raise the lever to lift the weight. When the power is removed the muscle wire cools and relaxes and the weight returns it to the starting position.


  • Flexinol wires contract by 3-5% irrespective of gauge size.
  • Flexinol wire is rated at >1,000,000 cycles when used as per manufacturer’s
  • Flexinol wires contract very rapidly – as fast as you can heat them.
    Wires relax more slowly – it is dependant on ambient cooling conditions.
  • Wires must be pulled back to their original, relaxed condition by external
    means eg. sping, gravity, rubber band.

Kenable USB 2.0 High Speed Cable Printer Lead A to B 1m



  • Length : 1m
  • Connections : A plug (flat) to B plug (Square)
  • USB v2.0 is a high speed connection method which is 40 times faster than USB v1.1 (480Mbps as opposed to 12Mbps).
  • It is plug & play and hot swappable (no need to turn off your PC to plug a device in or out).
  • USB v2.0 peripherals will not work at High Speed (480Mbps) unless they are connected with a USB v2.0 cable and connected to a computer equiped with USB v2.0 ports.

Arduino Boards


Arduino Uno – R3

The Arduino Uno is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328. It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started.


  • Microcontroller – ATmega328
  • Operating Voltage – 5V
  • Input Voltage (recommended) – 7-12V
  • Input Voltage (limits) – 6-20V
  • Digital I/O Pins – 14 (of which 6 provide PWM output)
  • Analog Input Pins – 6
  • DC Current per I/O Pin – 40mA
  • DC Current for 3.3V Pin – 50mA
  • Flash Memory – 32 KB (ATmega328) of which 0.5KB used by bootloader
  • SRAM – 2KB (ATmega328)
  • EEPROM – 1KB (ATmega328)
  • Clock Speed – 16MHz

Half Size Breadboard

This half sized breadboard (2.2″ x 3.4″) is perfect for small projects and can be “snapped” together for larger ones. If a smaller board is required you can easily pull off the power rails or cut it in half using a saw to create 2 tiny breadboards.

Bread board mini modulare blue

This blue Mini Breadboard is a great way to prototype your small projects.


  • With 170 tie points there’s just enough room to build and test simple circuits.
  • Great for breaking out DIP package ICs to jumper wires!
  • If you run out of room, no worries, these mini breadboards can be snapped together to form larger stretches of board.
  • It has a peel and stick adhesive backing as well as two mounting holes for M2 screws so you can anchor it down.
