Update (09/06/2020) Back and better than ever! Our store at 5-7 Ring Road Alfredton has reopened, with more space! Our staff have been busy expanding the store so we can provide our customers with a larger range of product in a more spacious environment. Our store capacity is now 28. Update (09/04/2020) Due to the current COVID-19 crisis we are experiencing some delays dispatching orders. We will continue to fill orders as quickly as possible while considering the health of our staff and customers. Please be aware that freight providers are also experiencing delays. More information can be found on the Australia Post website: Australia Post Coronavirus updates. Edit (01/04/2020) Due to the escalating crisis and increased statewide restrictions, Wiltronics has made the decision to close the store located at 5-7 Ring Road, Alfredton. This does not impact web orders, as our staff will be working to ensure all orders are dispatched. For our local customers, we still want to make sure you are able to get the goods you require in spite of the store closure. You can place an order via this website and select Local Pickup from the delivery options. Our staff will pick your order and contact you to let you know when your order is ready. We are also happy to organise sales via email at [email protected] or over the phone, call (03) 5334 2513. Phone lines will be attended from 8:30am to 5pm Monday to Friday. Pickups will occur at the door to our warehouse (left hand side of the above photo, next to the roller door is a door just out of frame). Please follow the signage to pick up your order. Wiltronics would like to assure all our loyal customers there will be no changes to the Wiltronics store opening hours at this time. We will update this post should any changes occur. If you are concerned about visiting our physical store we offer a local pickup option. You can order and pay on this site and we will call you when your order is ready to pick up. Or just have your package delivered through one of our postage options. All order fulfillment and deliveries are continuing as usual. Can't find what you are looking for here? We may still have it in stock or can order it in for you. We are happy to organise sales via email at [email protected] or over the phone, call (03) 5334 2513. If you do continue to shop in our physical store, we ask that you respect the health of other customers and our staff. Do not come into the store if you are unwell. Cover all coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your upper sleeve or elbow. You can view a more comprehensive list of transmission reduction measures from The Victoria Government Department of Health and Human Services. Stay safe, and look out for one another.

The Raspberry Pi micro computer has taken a big leap forward with the launch of the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B. The new model features a 1.5GHz quad-core 64-bit ARM Cortex-A72 CPU, dual monitor support at resolutions up to 4K and tiered memory options. Naturally this has resulted in high demand. After consultation with our supplier we are expecting the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B to arrive in stock between late August to early September. A more precise date will be determined as that window approaches. Raspberry Pi 4 Model B Pricing The Raspberry Pi 4 will feature 3 different versions with tiered RAM options: 1GB, 2GB, 4GB. Raspberry Pi 4 Model B 1GB    $64.95 Raspberry Pi 4 Model B 2GB    $82.95 Raspberry Pi 4 Model B 4GB    $99.95 New Accessories A new range of accessories will become available with the introduction due of the Pi 4. If upgrading from a previous model Pi there are a few changes to be aware of. Power Connector: USB-C (previously USB micro-B) Video: A pair of type-D (micro) HDMI connectors (previously single type-A HDMI)
Cases for the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ and earlier will not be suitable for the 4.

We've introduced a new bundle to our range of Edison kits, designed to contain all you need to get started with the Edison Robot and EdCreate. This kit is a great gift for an inquisitive child or as a pack for schools just getting started with Edison! Edison Robot A fun, super easy-to-use and educational robot, compatible with LEGO® bricks! Edison can learn different functions by driving over barcodes (printed on the EdMat) and can be programmed using three different programming environments built for beginners, intermediate and advanced learners. For more information on the programming environments available for Edison, check out You're a Programmer. EdCreate EdCreate is a constructor's kit containing 115 interlocking building blocks, pegs, gears, and other parts. These components can be used to create any of 5 EdBuilds, instructions for which can be downloaded here: You're a Builder with Edcreate. Or let your imagination run wild and build whatever you want!   Note: Supplied with a CR2025 battery for the remote. AAA batteries (not included) are required for the Edison Robots, Alkaline batteries are recommended.

ARD2-INNOV8 Curriculum Support Material. Seven has developed a wide variety of educational resources for use with the ARD2-INNOV8 shield, including a downloadable eBook titled 'Coding Innov8ion' aimed at primary school students. This book teaches students to program Arduino using the INNOV8 board, featuring 10 lessons using Snap4Arduino, a visual programming environment that lets you create programs by dragging and dropping pre-made 'code blocks'. Jumper Connector Leads: 100mm and 300mm We've added to our popular 200mm jumper leads with two new ranges: 100mm and 300mm lengths, with in male-male, fem-fem and male-fem terminations. They are great for connecting sensors and modules to your Arduino, Raspberry Pi or other microcontrollers. Jumper leads make it easy to connect and disconnect components without the hassle of soldering, making them ideal for experimenting and prototyping. These leads come in 3 'strips' of 40 so you can keep your connections neat and organised, or you can pull them apart to make individual jumpers. Easily experiment & prototype with Arduino or Raspberry Pi Comes in strips of 40 0.1" sockets/pins Click here to shop Cables & Connectors for Arduino ARD2 Load Cell Sensors: 2kg, 10kg, 20kg Adding to our existing range, these straight bar load cells (sometimes called a strain gauge) can translate up to 2kg, 10kg or 20kg of pressure (force) into an electrical signal. Each load cell is able to measure the electrical resistance that changes in response to, and proportional of, the strain (e.g. pressure or force) applied to the bar. With this gauge you will be able to tell just how heavy an object is, if an object's weight changes over time, or if you simply need to sense the presence of an object by measuring strain or load applied to a surface. Click here to shop Load Cell Sensors   Check out the list below for more additions to our ARD2 range.
