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
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
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 connection.
X-Rail Screw Plates
X-Rail screw 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.
