Remote Control Units



Kit 157 Rolling Code 2-Channel UHF Remote Control
This is state of the art. Up to 15 Tx units can be learnt by one Rx unit.





Extra Remote



K180 Kit 180 Rolling Code 4-Channel UHF Remote Control

This is state of the art. Up to 15 Tx units can be learnt by one Rx unit. There is a complete description of what rolling code is in the article. For more on using KEELOQ to generate hopping passwords see AN662 and AN665 by Microchip. Do a google.com search on '433.9mhz', 'lipo' for more information about the transmitting band.


K181 Kit 181 Rolling Code 10-Channel UHF Remote Control

Kit 181 uses the same Tx/RX pair as Kit 180 but it uses all 10 defined keypress combinations out of the 4 buttons to activate relays. The following keypress combinations give readable outputs: pins 1, 2, 3, and 4 (of course) and the pins 1&2, 1&3, 1&4, 2&3, 2&4, and 3&4 pressed together. A PIC16F628 does ALL the work. It is a perfect demonstartion of how micro-controllers have taken over from cmos logic etc.

Toggle or momentary mode will be determined by keeping the 1 or two buttons depressed for more than 2 seconds and then that relay will stay in that mode until another >2 sec keypress. Small relays are used to save weight and board area.


This kit makes it possible to turn up to three devices on or off over the telephone. It is also possible to check the condition of a switch (open or closed). Example : when you are away on holiday, you may switch the lights on and off from time to time, check the alarm or turn on the heating before returning home. A major advantage of this circuit lies in the fact that audio signals are used to tell whether a specific output has been turned on or off. Operation is protected by a user defined code, which is simply keyed in from the telephone keypad.


  • a relay is included for one output: 10A / 250V AC

  • automatic pick-up can be selected for ± 8 or ± 3 rings

  • automatic hang-up if no code is entered within 20 seconds

  • supply voltage: 12V AC / 300mA

  • dimensions: 4.1" x 5.1"

Price: $59.55


The thermostat is used as any other one, but with the added facility of choosing the day or night temperature setting by means of a telephone. The remote control facility is operated via the telephone keypad, thus a DTMF type phone is required. From audio signals sent down the line, the user receives a report back on how the thermostat is set. Switching is protected by a security code, set by the user, which is keyed into the telephone in a simple manner.

DIY KIT 117 PICALL Microcontroller PIC Programmer

A continuity tester is one of the most useful pieces of test equipment to have. It is used for testing the electrical continuity between two points. Our tester will "buzz" up to a specified resistance or less. Two on-board resistance ranges available. Full theory of operation given. The user may adjust the resistance ranges to suit his own requirements.

The kit is driven from the Parallel Printer port of a PC using a straight thru M/F 25 pin cable. These are readily available.

There is no software Registration, as a programmed chip is supplied in the kit, and the PC driver software is free.

For volume programming and maximum flexibility the kit requires one on-board wide-slot 40-pin ZIF socket. The software tells you where to place the PIC you are programming. (Note some older designed PIC programmers available like the Warp-13 have 2 or even 3 (!) ZIF sockets on-board. Only one wide-slot 40 pin ZIF socket is necessary with PICALL.) The reason the 40 pin ZIF socket is not included is because these are manufactured in north America while the kit is packed in Hong Kong. Since most kits are sold in Europe & north America it is cheaper if you buy the socket locally.

All software and other documentation is available from Bojan Dobaj's Home Page at picallw.com

Motor Speed Controllers



K67 Kit 67 DC Motor Speed Controller

Control the speed of any common DC motor rated up to 100V (5A). Operates on 5V to 15V. Uses NE556 to pulse-width modulate a high current switching power transistor, TIP122. In this way motor torque is maintained. Adjustable speed control. Box mounted.



Kit 166 Bidirectional DC Motor Speed Controller

This kit allows controlling the speed of a DC motor in both the forward and reverse direction. The range of control is from fully OFF to fully ON in both directions. Normally, switches are used to change the direction of rotation of a DC motor. Change the polarity of the applied voltage and the motor spins the other way! However this has the disadvantage that a DPDT switch has to be added to change the polarity of the applied voltage. Now you have two things to control the motor – a direction switch as well as the speed control.

Also, it is not a good idea to suddenly reverse the voltage on a DC motor while it is spinning. It can cause a current surge that can burn out the speed controller. Not to mention any mechanical stress it can cause as well. This kit overcomes both these problems.

K179 Kit 179 Unipolar Stepper Motor Driver


Kit 187 Stepper Motor Drive

The Stepper Motor Chopper Driver is a Bipolar Stepper Motor Drive with easily adjustable current control up to 2A, based on the SGS-Thompson L297 and L298 stepper motor controller and driver IC’s. 

Stepper motors are rated by current and and not by voltage.  A chopper driver because it is  switching on and off current allows a set current to be fed to the coils and not be dependent on the voltage of the power supply.  The Chopper Driver also allows for the use of higher voltage power supplies (up to 36V) to overcome the effects of the inductance of the coils giving better performance and a higher top speed.

Logic Probe Kits

Uses a sidac instead of a neon tube to trigger the flash. Sidacs represent a unique set of thyristor qualities. The sidac is a bi-directional voltage triggered switch. Some characteristics of this device include a normal 95 to 330 volt switching point, negative resistance range, latching characteristics at turn-on and a low on-state voltage drop. One cycle surge current capability up to 20 amps makes the sidac an ideal product for dumping charged capacitors through an inductor in order to generate high-voltage pulses.
