Crash sensor (Left) Crash, bump, nudge, roller switch, sensor, Left
DF-SEN0138-L
Price: $2.90 In Stock
Item #: DF-SEN0138-L -

    The Crash sensor (Left) is a miniature snap-action switch, also trademarked and frequently known as a micro switch. It is an electric switch that is actuated by very little physical force. Micro switches are very widely used; among their applications are appliances, machinery, industrial controls, vehicles, and many other places for control of electrical circuits. They are usually rated to carry current in control circuits only, although some switches can be directly used to control small...

      Price: $5.90 In Stock
      Item #: DF-SEN0017 -

        Line tracking is the most basic function of a smart mobile robot. It is one of the easiest ways for a robot to successfully and accurately navigate. The Digital Line Tracking Sensor will guide your robot by telling white from black quickly and accurately, via TTL signal. With a drawn path and good programming, you can ensure results that are far more consistent than if the robot was simply told where to go without any reference. You can combine several line following sensors with other ranged...

          Item #: PX-28995 -

            One of the most favored IR range sensors on the market. Detects distances from 4" to 30" (10cm-80cm). Note: The sensor sold here is actually a Sharp IR GP2Y0A21YK0F. It has the same distance range as a GP2D12 and very similar analog output properties. The GP2D12 is extremely difficult to source currently, so these sensors provide a great alternative. For more information on the minor differences, please refer to the datasheets for each sensor: Datasheets GP2D12 Datasheet GP2Y0A21YK0F...

                Sharp IR Distance Sensor GP2Y0A02YK (20-150 cm)
                PO-1137
                Price: $15.00 In Stock
                Item #: PO-1137 -

                  This sensor takes a continuous distance reading and reports the distance as an analog voltage with a distance range of 20cm (~8") to 150cm (~60"). The interface is 3-wire with power, ground and the output voltage and requires a JST 3-pin connector (not included). The JST 3-pin connector includes the J3 connector for the sensor and bare wires at the other end, and requires that the processor or ADC-side connector be purchased or built separately. For most applications we recommend...
