We are excited about our new 0.1″ terminal blocks because they can typically be soldered to PCBs in place of standard 0.1″ male and female headers, offering alternative board-to-wire connection options that can be especially convenient in cases where you know you will be dealing with stripped, unterminated wires. For example, the following picture shows an 8-pin terminal block spanning the control connections of a VNH5019 motor driver carrier:

We’re now selling the latest V5 versions of the RoboClaw 2x5A, 2x15A, and 2x30A dual motor controllers from Ion Motion Control. Like the previous V4 RoboClaws, they can drive a pair of brushed DC motors at voltages from 6 V to 34 V, but the 2x5A now has a USB serial interface (in addition to TTL serial, RC, and analog inputs) like its larger siblings, and the 2x15A and 2x30A have a new heat sink design that should improve cooling. We expect to ha...

We now have a shorter (20 mm) 12 mm Hex Wheel Adapter for 6 mm Shaft as an alternative to our original 35 mm extended version. These adapters work well with our 37D mm metal gearmotors, allowing you to use them with many common hobby RC wheels.

Most electronics projects (and many Pololu products) require soldering. That’s why we’re excited to offer a soldering station and other accessories that we can wholeheartedly recommend! We are now carrying Hakko soldering and desoldering tools and Hakko hand tools (cutters and pliers). We use Hakko tools in our own manufacturing, and we believe they offer a great mix of reliability, performance, and price.

A contact at Mexican distributor Cosas de Ingeniería wrote to let us know about a contest he is helping organize in Juriquilla, Querétaro, Mexico. The Mexican Mechatronics Asociation (Asociación Mexicana de Mecatronica A.C.) will be hosting the 14th National Congress of Mechatronics (14º Congreso Nacional de Mecatrónica) 2nd Robotics Competition on October 15th through 17th this year. The three-day event will host several robotic competitions:

In March, I wrote a blog post about the Bohlebots robotics team winning the West German Robocup Soccer 1v1. Since then, the Bohlebots team has gone on to win first and third in the German Open Robocup Soccer 1v1 with their two robotics teams.

Many of the engineers and robot enthusiasts here at Pololu competed in the LVBots 2015 line following competition. (For house rules and details about how the competition was judged, see the LVBots line following rules page.) Unlike most of my peers this was my first competition at LVBots, so I thought it was fitting to name my robot “Newbie”. Newbie uses a servo to steer the front wheels, creating fluid movements in and out of turns. At least ...

Great product selection and fast service. I ordered online Monday night, the package was shipped Tuesday morning, and I received it Wednesday afternoon. This company will definitely be my go-to for wires and connectors from now on.

Be sure to check out their Return Policy before ordering anything. They do not accept returns for Customer Dissatisfaction. If you open the package to check out your merchandise, you cannot return it for any reason (even if it's unused, unassembled, or undamaged). Makes you wonder why anyone would place an order, receive it, not open it, and send it back for a refund and substantial restocking fee. Gives a new perspective on 'Customer Service' for me. Also makes you wonder why their statement of "Due to the nature of our Business" precludes them from providing the same level of Customer Service on Returns, as the hundreds of other on-line vendors will do.

I have not visited, but I did place an order for several small items that are very expensive at the local hardware stores (nylon spacers) and a acrylic robot base. I have to say I had no issues with the ordering process, delivery or items received. I was puzzled by the constant reference to the fact that my order might be delayed due to international postal problems...I live in Kansas USA and they are in Vegas USA. Never mind, all the items I ordered were fine and they arrived quickly. No problems and I will be ordering again from them soon.
