Product Information


Relay for micro:bit

The MonkMakes Relay for micro:bit is a solid-state (no moving parts) relay that allows an output of a micro:bit to turn things on and off.

This relay can be used to switch low voltage devices such as light bulbs, a motor, a small heating element or even a string of 12V LED lighting. The voltage needs to be kept under 16V, but the relay will automatically protect itself against too much current.

Please note that the individual boards are packed in antistatic bubblewrap bags.

Product Information


Squid Button Twin Pack

The Button Twin Pack consists of two Raspberry Squid Buttons (non-latching) and a Raspberry Leaf GPIO template.

Product Information


Squid Button non-latching Individual

The Squid Button is a momentary action push switch with trailing leads that end in female header sockets that will fit over GPIO pins on a Raspberry Pi, Node MCU or Particle Photon. To reduce the chance of accidental short-circuits when using the Button, each Button has a built-in 470Ω resistor that does not affect the switching action when connected to a GPIO input, but does mean that if the switch is accidentally connected across power connections your Raspberry Pi will not come to any harm.

Please note individual Squids are packaged in a clear plastic bag.
Product Information


Squid Button LATCHING Individual

The Squid Button LATCHING is a latching (click-on, click again off) push switch with trailing leads that end in female header sockets that will fit over GPIO pins on a Raspberry Pi, Node MCU or Particle Photon. To reduce the chance of accidental short-circuits when using the Button, each Button has a built-in 470Ω resistor that does not affect the switching action when connected to a GPIO input, but does mean that if the switch is accidentally connected across power connections your Raspberry Pi will not come to any harm.
