It can be used to measure both high side voltage and current, this is done over i2c (digital) with 1% precision. Monitor a supply of up to 26v and a current of plus or minus 3.2 A. Use the included 3.5mm terminal strip connection to make tapping into your high current wire easy.
Large operating range (26v plus or minus 3.2 amps)

http://oomlout.co.uk/blog/adaf-13-pe/#commentsWed, 27 Mar 2013 15:03:00 +0000.:oomlout:.http://oomlout.co.uk/blog/?p=624
Looking to make your project more permanent. This little perf board is the answer. It has the same form factor and connections as our 400 Point Breadboard which means no need to translate your design. It’s also a really high quality PCB with 1.2mm holes (to accommodate large leaded components), and plated through holes to making soldering a breeze. To top it all off they are gold plated, meaning the surface won’t oxidize making soldering a dream.
Same layout as a breadboard.
Large 1.2mm holes meaning.
Sold in a pack of three.
Gold plated, meaning no oxidization and easy soldering.

Looking to connect two pins together, or one pin to a breadboard look no further. These premium jumper wires are 300 mm long with a crimped female terminal on each end. Looking to go from pin to breadboard that’s easy with the included 36 pin long header. Great for your next Arduino or Raspberry Pi project.
Colour code your wiring to make it easily de-bugable (7 colours)
Included long header means you can go from board to breadboard easily
Premium crimped terminals mean they fit easily side by side on a header or into a breadboard

http://oomlout.co.uk/blog/arsh-17-wf/#commentsTue, 28 Aug 2012 15:15:16 +0000.:oomlout:.http://oomlout.co.uk/blog/?p=609.
Tired of your Arduino ethernet projects being tethered? This shield is the answer. Plug it into your Arduino, connect it to your wireless network, and start controlling your next project through the air.
Easy to use. (only a few additions are required to sketches using the wired ethernet shield)
Connects to most modern WIFI networks (802.11b/g and WEP & WPA2 encryption)
Easy to upgrade the firmware (if needed, using the on board mini USB port)
Open source. (both hardware and firmware making it possible to add new protocols directly to the shield)

http://oomlout.co.uk/blog/ardu-04/#commentsThu, 16 Aug 2012 10:14:40 +0000.:oomlout:.http://oomlout.co.uk/blog/?p=605
The newest member of the Arduino family has arrived. The Leonardo has all the aspects that make the UNO such a lovely product (ample input/output pins, plenty of code and variable space) and adds a few additional features. The board is based on the ATmega32u4 microcontroller, which has on board USB support, meaning no need for an extra chip, and your sketches can now interact with your computer as if the board were a keyboard or mouse.
On board USB support means your sketches can act like a USB keyboard or mouse.
Loads of code (32KB flash) and variable (2KB SRAM) space
Great community support
Uses a standard micro USB cable (same as used for charging modern phones)

Heat shrink is wonderful stuff. Here’s a colour assortment of our favourite (and we think most useful) size 3mm. Use it to cover up solder joints, hold things together, or simply beautify/rainbow’ify your project.
11 different colours makes colour coding your next project easy.
