HEX WHEEL ADAPTORS
Adding to their line of ABS and foam wheels, ServoCity has two new hex wheel adaptor sets: one designed for
12 mm hex wheels, and one specifically for 17 mm hex
wheels. These wheel adaptor kits allow users to convert the
12 mm or 17 mm hex drive wheels to the ServoCity 0.770"
hub pattern that is found throughout their product line.
The recessed 0.770" pattern also allows users to run
6-32 socket head screws into any 0.770 hub or other
component that utilizes the same pattern.
Each kit consists of two aluminum mounts, two
washers, and two mounting screws. Constructed of
6061-T6 aluminum for strength and durability, these
adaptors make it easy to customize mobile projects.
Retail price is $9.99/pair.
32P PINION GEARS
ServoCity's selection of gears continues to grow with their new 32 pitch pinion gears that are available in
Anew, low cost contactless gesture-recognition technology called imPart™ which uses Plessey
Semiconductor's award-winning EPIC™ electric potential
sensors is now available from Saelig. imPart technology is
designed to fit around computer monitors, portable laptop
computers, ultra books, and tablets to facilitate the control

either a 0.250" bore or 6 mm bore. Simply slide the gear on
a gearmotor or other compatible shaft and tighten the 10-
32 set screw. The gears have a 20 degree pressure angle
and are manufactured from hardened brass gear stock.
Available sizes include: 16 tooth, 20 tooth, 24 tooth, and
32 tooth. The 32 tooth gear is machined out for weight
savings. These pinion gears are ideal for robotics,
videography, and R/C applications. Retail price is

up, and down. A simple 'left-click' function is accomplished
by hovering the hand at any required point for more than
0.5 s. Plessey's unique low power EPIC sensors detect
changes in electric potential, and allow devices to be
gesture-enabled without needing capacitive touchscreen
technology or video cameras.
This new technology can detect very small signals even
at a distance of up to 4" without physical contact.
EPIC sensors work by detecting changes in the earth's
atmospheric electric potential field caused by a hand or
