  • RasWIK - Raspberry Pi Wireless Inventors Kit (CIS-S005)

    Product description

    The Wireless Inventors Kit for the Raspberry Pi (RasWIK) is an exciting and affordable addition to the Raspberry Pi.  RasWIK demonstrates that with our leading edge technology anyone (and we mean anyone) can build wireless sensors and actuators , you do not need huge experience, a degree or even any tools. We show you even how to connect the devices you build to “the Internet of Things” (IoT) service providers such as Xively. 

    Getting started is just 5 simple steps:

    • 1. Insert the preconfigured SD card to your Pi
    • 2. Plug in the Slice of Radio to the GPIO connector
    • 3. Turn on the Pi
    • 4. Power the XinoRF development board
    • 5. Launch the Python based example application on your Pi
    • That's it!........you are now past step one of your journey to wireless nirvana :)

    You can build wireless devices in just a matter of minutes.  All the code is fully Open Source, you can use, modify and even sell your own products based on this kit. 

    There are 29 fully documented projects. The 17 hardware projects take you from very basic sensors, actuators and light controls to more complicated ones that include measuring temperature and light levels. The 12 fully completed software projects show you how to do more sophisticated stuff, including posting your measurements on the Internet. 

    Out of the box all the hardware is configured to start you off without you writing a single line of code.  The kit comes complete with an SD card image that has starter software and a fully configured Pi operating system already installed.  The devices you make are even interoperable with our off the shelf wireless devices.

    In a review of RasWIK in the October 2013 issue of Custom PC , Gareth Halfacree (co author of the Raspberry Pi manual) said: "It provides possibly the simplest platform for experimenting with wireless sensor networks I’ve ever seen."

    RasWIK  won an outstanding 5 tux in Linux Format,  saw a 4 page spread in Raspberry Pi geek and has had a number of other reviews. In every review, RasWIK comes out to be an excellent way to learn more about your Pi and wireless sensing.

    The youngest WIKer we know of is just 8 years old! If he can do it, you can too :)

    Here is a 17 minute video of a presentation on RasWIK we gave at the Cambridge Raspberry Jam on 21 September 2013. 

    Features:

    • Starter examples require no soldering
    • Comes with plug in wires and a solderless breadboard
    • 4Gb SD card image (saves you lots of Pi configuration)
    • Examples use LLAP to drive the devices (LLAP devices can be mixed with our out the box wireless devices)
    • Made in the UK

  • Ultrasonic Distance Sensor (Panning) CrumbleBot Addon (BOTSONPAN)
    Panning Ultrasonic Distance Sensor for CrumbleBot

    This a simple, screw-together addon for all versions of CrumbleBot. Using the 2 mounting holes at the front, together with the power supply extension pieces (included) you can easily add distance sensing to your CrumbleBot.

    This version of the kit includes a servo to allow you to move the ultrasonic sensor left and right, using the inbuilt Crumble software commands.

    Using two Croc Clips, one for the servo and one for the for the sensor reading, as well as Crumble Software 25.2 or later, you can check if the CrumbleBot is about to hit an obstacle then avoid using a more sophisticated algorithm than just a static (non-moving) sensor. Of course, you can simply not move the sensor and use the simple software shown in the static sensor listing

    The program shown above detects an obstacle within 15cm, then looks left and right to see which direction has the closest obstacle. It then reverses out of the way of the current obstacle, before turning towards the direction with most space to move.

    No soldering is required, and the kit can be assembled in a few minutes using only a small philips (cross head) screwdriver

    Contents:
    • Ready assembled ultrasonic PCB (moving)
    • Ready assembled servo PCB (static)
    • Servo, complete with various fixings

  • 12mm Flat/Square 5V Digital RGB LED Pixels Strand of 50 WS2801 Waterproof IP65 (LED50-2801-5A)

    12mm Flat/Square 5V Digital RGB LED Pixel String - Waterproof IP65

    NB. Photos show shorter strand, but this strand has 50 LEDs

    RGB Pixels are digitally-controllable lights you can set to any color, or animate. Each RGB LED and controller chip is molded into a 'dot' of silicone. The dots are weatherproof and rugged. There are four flanges molded in so that you can 'push' them into a 12mm drill hole in any material up to 1.5mm/0.06" thick. They're typically used to make outdoor signs. These pixels are round, but we also have some with a flat square back. It affects mostly the way the wires lie and the colour of the wires!

    The pixels are connected by a 4-conductor cable. +5V (Red), Ground (Yellow), Data (Green) and Clock (Blue). Data is shifted down from one pixel to the next so that you can easily cut the strand or attach more onto the end.

    Each dot is digitally controlled, with an internal 8-bit PWM LED driver (24-bit color for 16 million different shades). The pixels must be clocked by a microcontroller, we have an example code linked below that works on an Arduino, it should be simple to adapt it to any other microcontroller.

    The pixels use 8mm diffused RGB LEDs, with a 120 degree beam width. The total max brightness of all LEDs is about 1600mcd but with the light more evenly distributed & mixed than a clear LED. (Please note: mcd ratings of LEDs are notoriously inflated by most LED sellers, so be extra-skeptical when reviewing LED ratings!)

    Sold by the strand, each strand has 50 pixels in series! Each strand has two JST SM 4-pin connectors so you can connect multiple strands in a row, as many as you wish, just watch for how much current they want. We now have LED pixel strands with the power wires (Red & White) spliced out so its really easy to connect 5VDC.

    You can drive these with an Arduino using any two microcontroller digital pins, check this library which also has example code to demonstrate the strands and be sure to read Adafruit's detailed tutorial on usage!

    You can also download the FastSPI library and our Chaser.ino sketch. Connect the Data wire (Blue) to Pin 11 and Clock (Green) to Pin 13 as well as Power and Ground

    • 12mm diameter (0.45") 75mm deep (1.5")
    • 80mm / 3" apart between each pixel
    • 50 pieces per string
    • These pixels use a WS2801 chip for full 24 bit color
    • 5V power, 60mA maximum per pixel (LED on full white)
    • Maximum current required 3A per string
    • 2-pin SPI-like protocol
    • Brightness: Red = 3.3 Lumens/300 mcd, Green = 10 Lumens/1000 mcd, Blue = 2.7 Lumens/300 mcd (mcd calculation based on full 120 degree beam)

  • Individual LED RGB 5V Pixels Addressable WS2812B (WS2812B10)

    WS2812B RGB LED 5V Pixels - Packs of 10, 50, 100, 200

    RGB Pixels are digitally-controllable lights you can set to any colour, or animate. Each pixel a 5050 size (5 x5mm square) RGB pixel, with the 24-bit PWM controller chip embedded directly within the pixel.

    Each pixel is digitally controlled, with an internal 8-bit PWM LED driver (24-bit color for 16 million different shades).

    The WS2812B differs from the earlier WS2812 in that it only has 4 pins. The power for the controller and the LED is combined and is also reverse polarity protected. Connect DO (Data Out)  of first chip to DI (Data In) of the next. Several hundred can be connected together in one chain and are all separately addressable. The timing sequence is very specific and the length of refresh increases with every LED added to the string

    You can download the FastSPI library and our Chaser.ino sketch. Connect the DI (Data In) of the first pixel Pin 11 as well as Power and Ground

    Crumble Getting Started Guide

    The Crumble is an easy-to-use programmable controller. It can drive 2 motors forwards and backwards at variable speeds. It has 4 IO (Input/Output) pads which allow connections to switches, LDRs, low power LEDs and so on.

    Basic Connections

    The Crumble has been designed to encourage tinkering, using ‘croc leads’ for quick and simple connections. Pads allow terminal blocks to be fitted or a direct solder connection made, while the larger 4mm holes make an easy target for conductive thread and needle.

    Crumble with croc leads

    The Crumble software runs on PC, Mac and, in the near future, Linux (including the Raspberry Pi). Inspired by MIT Scratch, programs are simply built by snapping blocks together on screen. Sending a program to the Crumble is almost instant, allowing rapid experimentation.

    The Crumble can be extended with digitally controlled full-colour LED, called Sparkles. Additionally, several expansions board (Crumbs) are also in the works.
