Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.

Arduino can sense the environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators. The microcontroller on the board is programmed using the Arduino programming language (based on Wiring - basically a C syntax language) and the Arduino development environment (based on Processing). Arduino projects can be stand-alone or they can communicate with software on running on a computer (e.g. Flash, Processing, MaxMSP).

The arduino IDE (integrated development environment) runs on Windows, MAC-OS and Linux. The target code is conviniently downloaded to the target board via USB.

The boards can be built by handor purchased preassembled; the software can be downloaded for free. The hardware reference designs (CAD files) areavailable under an open-source license, you are free to adapt them to your needs.

Electrokit has been an Arduino distributor all the way since early 2007, and we are one of the largest in Europe.

  LoL Shield 3mm red (kit)
You have to assemble it yourself, if you want it assembled, 41010251. INTRODUCTION: This is Lot-Of-Leds multiplexing LEDs shield with 126 LEDs made in 14x9 matrix. This shield originally was developed by Jimmie P Rodgers and you can find his original project and Arduino libraries here When we saw this shield first time we fall in love with it, it was so simple and nice to play with, especially when we saw how Super-Awesome-Sylvia assembed it :) What we didn't like on the original design was that it uses only 3mm LEDs, so we made another one with 5 mm and 10 mm LEDs and one complete LOL with embedded Arduino called LOL-TEXTILE which is 30x20 cm and can't be attached to your clothing back. FEATURES: 126 individually addressable LEDs Arduino libraries, pong, tetris, invaders games Bright LEDs 5000 mcd available in 4 LED sizes: 3mm, 5mm, 10mm, and SMT 3528 available in 4 colors: RED, GREEN, BLUE, WHITE available in KIT form or completely ASSEMBLED and tested!
  RGB Shield (kit)
RGB-shield for controlling / dimming three channels of LEDs (1 x RGB or 3 single channels) with Arduino UNO. The shield can drive up to 2A from the internal power of the Arduino (Vin) and up to 6A with external power supply. The shield also has headers on the top of the card for stacking several shields on top of eachother. Specifications: 2 A load via Vin or 6 A load via external power 12 or 24 V external power supply Uses pin 3, 5, 6 PWM on an Arduino UNO board Dimensions: 68 x 53mm / 2.67 x 2.08"
  TinkerKit Tilt sensor
The Tilt Sensor can detect when it is at an angle. Output: This module contains two contacts and a small metal ball. When the sensor is in its upright position, the ball bridges the two contacts, completing the circuit. When the board is tilted, the ball moves, and the circuit opens. When upright, the module outputs 5V and when it is tilted, it outputs 0V. When connected to an input on the Arduino using the TinkerKit Shield, you can expect to read a value of 1023 when in its upright position and 0 when it is titled. Module description: this module features a Tilt Sensor, a signal amplifier, the standard TinkerKit 3pin connector, a green LED that signals that the module is correctly powered and a yellow LED that lights up when a connection is made (the sensor is upright).
  EL Escudo Dos
Weve heard you, and made a number of improvements to our EL Shield. The new version adds zero-crossing optoisolated triacs for noise-free operation and full isolation between the AC and DC sides, and includes a 1.5A adjustable linear regulator to supply regulated DC to an external inverter (not included). EL Escudo Dos is an Arduino shield for controlling up to eight strands of electroluminescent wire. EL wire is flexible plastic cord that glows brightly when high-voltage AC is applied to it. Its available in numerous colors (see the related products below), runs cool, and requires very little current, but can be difficult to work with because of the high-voltage requirements. The El Escudo Dos contains circuitry to safely switch high-voltage AC on and off, allowing you to create animated displays or whatever else your imagination can come up with. In addition to this shield, you will need Arduino headers (see the related products below), an inverter (a component that generates the high-voltage AC needed by EL wire), and the EL wire itself. SparkFun carries two inverters, a 3V-input version that can drive a few feet of EL wire, and a 12V-input version capable of driving dozens of feet of EL wire. Choose the one appropriate to your power source and driving requirements. The shields built-in regulator comes preset to 3.3V, but can be set to any voltage by changing two resistors, or bypassed with a solder jumper to send the Arduinos RAW voltage directly to the inverter (perfect for 12V setups!). See the tutorial below. Nate has used EL wire to make amazing interactive costumes; check out his Heartbeat Straitjacket and demo video. Features: Eight opto-isolated, zero-crossing control channels No library needed - control is as easy as turning a LED on and off Shield is compatible with 5V or 3.3V Arduinos Integrated 1.5A linear regulator (LM317) to supply regulated DC power to external inverter Linear regulator preset to 3.3V, but can be changed via PTH resistors, or bypassed entirely External inverter required, not included Comes without headers, soldering required
  Electric Imp shield
If you arent familiar with the Electric Imp, it essentially provides an easy, integrated way to connect almost any hardware device both to other devices and to internet services. Its more than just a WiFi card, or even a WiFi module with processing built in - its an integrated platform that deals with the drudgery of connectivity, allowing you to concentrate on the application instead of the mechanics. Of course, if youre developing for it youll need a way to get in there and poke around. The Electric Imp Shield allows you to connect your Arduino project to the internet through your home WiFi network. This way, your Arduino can take advantage of the Imp Cloud service and connect to HTTP APIs. The Shield connects one of the imps UARTs (Imp pins 5 and 7) to either the Arduino hardware UART or a software serial on pins 8 and 9. It defaults to the software serial, but there are jumpers on the bottom side to set it to the hardware serial. A couple imp pins (8 & 9) are also connected to LEDs. They can be disconnected via jumpers on the bottom, if youd like. Because the Electric Imp can draw up to 400mA on the 3.3V line, this shield has its own voltage regulator which is fed from the 5V Arduino line. Most Arduino compatible boards should be able to handle this amount of draw but beware that some clones that use less robust VREGs could see trouble.
  Dual stepper motor driver for Arduino
Dual stepper motor driver shield can drive 2 stepper motors at the same time by Arduino. It can work with the power supply from 4.75V to 30V. High accuracy controlling can be supported by Arduino for CNC milling machine. It uses the same stepper motor driver chip as EasyDriver, so you can use it as 2 EasyDriver modules on board. And there are all pins breakout as 3PIN electronic brick/ sensor brick interface.
  CleO35 RIO Adapter
Adapter for mounting the regular Arduino UNO to CleO35.
  Multi-function shield for Arduino
