LOW VOLTAGE CUTOFF SWITCH
It's important to protect your LiPo batteries from being drained below 3V/cell and ServoCity’s low voltage cutoff switch ($19.99) does just
that. This switch has three modes: 1S, 2S, or 3S. It simply passes the
voltage on from the battery to the load (motor controller, ESC, servo
controller, light, etc.) until the battery meets the cutoff voltage.
Whether you are powering a microcomputer like a Raspberry Pi, a
microcontroller like an Arduino, or an RC vehicle, the low voltage
cutoff switch helps take away one of the main challenges of working
with LiPo batteries.
Need to know what PWM signal your receiver, robot, or servo controller is sending? Simply plug in ServoCity’s PWM meter
($19.99) to see a readout of the PWM signal in microseconds (µsec). If
you wish to pass that signal on to your servo or device, just plug into
the other set of header row pins.
X-Rail nuts (four-pack; $4.99) allow you to integrate Actobotics X-Rail extrusion with other components of the Actobotics building
system. The X-Rail nuts are able to slide anywhere along X-Rail, and
provide a threaded hole to fasten a component to. The top of the nut is
designed to sit just below the top surface of the X-Rail which creates
tension between the X-Rail and the mating component for a solid
X-RAIL SCREW PLATES
X-Railscrew plates (two-pack; $4.99)
are a longer version of
the X-Rail nuts. When
you want to attach an
component using the
0.770" or 1.50"
(measuring 1.061" to
align with the side)
pattern, X-Rail screw plates provide more surface contact with the slot of
the X-Rail when compared to the X-Rail nuts. These screw plates are able
to move to any location along the X-Rail and lock into place when a part
is fastened using 6-32 screws.
