Stepper motor with driver
Stepper motor with driver

If you’ve ever wanted to make something with a stepper motor, this is a great place to start. A stepper motor is a type of motor that can control its revolutions very precisely, so it is used for precise control and positioning.

This set comes with a small stepper motor and a driver for it. Namely, the stepper motor needs to be controlled in an exact way in order to get what you want from it (which is a precise turn), so the driver helps us with that. Also, the driver provides enough current to turn the motor.

This stepper motor driver enables the control of a stepper motor that does not need more than 800mA of current and operates at a voltage of up to 14V. In addition to the driver, it also has built-in LEDs that indicate which phase of the motor is currently active.

Soldered Inkplate 10

If you’re like us, the first time you saw an e-reader, you thought to yourself, “I could do something with that.”. Thanks to clean lines, high contrast, daylight readability, and the remarkable level of energy efficiency that comes from drawing power only when changing the screen’s contents, the e-paper is uniquely suited to many applications. Following Inkplate 6 success, with Inkplate 10 we continue to make e-paper accessible to hobbyists and DIY product designers by offering a plug-and-play hardware platform that is super-easy to use and compatible with Arduino.

 

 

To name a few features, Inkplate 10 has a stunning 9.7″ inch e-paper display with refresh rate of 1.61s, greyscale mode, and partial updates support. Powered by ESP32, you will have a strong microcontroller with WiFi and Bluetooth at your disposal. It’s super-low-power (22uA) so you can use it for days, weeks, or months out of a single battery charge. There’s Li-ion battery charger, Real Time Clock (RTC), additional GPIO pins, and more. Using our Arduino library (100% compatible with Adafruit GFX), it’s 5 minute work to get the board running for you. The Micropython module is available as well. It’s 100% open-source for both software and hardware. What is especially interesting is that Inkplate uses recycled screens taken from old e-book readers, which is very environmentally friendly, but you have to keep in mind that some screens may have small scratches because of this. All screens with large scratches and damages are not used at all.

 

 

Inkplate 10 options:

 

With e-paper display & enclosure: This version offers a sturdy and sleek enclosure for your device, made with precision from a 3D printer. It’s perfect for those who want an extra layer of protection without any added features.

 

With e-paper display, enclosure, and battery: Upgrade to this version if you’re looking for both protection and mobility. This option includes a 3D-printed enclosure as well as an integrated battery, ensuring your device stays powered even on the go.

 

Without e-paper display: For those who prefer a simpler or alternative display solution, this version does not include the e-paper display. It’s ideal for users who have their own display solutions or prefer to use the device without a visual interface.

Mini buzzer speaker
Mini buzzer speaker

In a buzzer speaker, current is run through a coil of wire that produces a magnetic field. The flexible ferromagnetic disc is attracted to the coil when current is flowing through it and returns to a “rest” position when current is not flowing through the coil. The sound from the buzzer speaker is produced by moving a ferromagnetic disc in a similar way to a cone in a speaker.

Electronic water valve 220V AC
Electronic water valve 220V AC

For the purpose of automation in working with plants, there is an electronic valve for the water (or other liquid?). If you need a way to control some fluid using a microcontroller, here it is! It is actually the electronic solenoid which when activated, the fluid passes through his pipe, and if not – will not. Accepts pipe diameter of1/2 and at the inlet has a filter for all the unwanted particles.

 

It does not contain the pump or even some additional electronics, so make sure to have an external pump or use faucet water with pressure which is large enough. Systems that have a reservoir at a higher altitude than the valve, or to be exact, that apply the principle of hydrostatic pressure will not work because the pressure will not be large enough.
