The world of electronics
This is a space where you are limited only by your own imagination. Here you can create systems for a wide range of applications - lighting control, door or gate opening, ventilation or heating, toys or serious control panels - all of this is at your fingertips, you just need to delve into the world of electronics and choose the right system components. With our assortment of touch plate accessories, you can easily tinker and enjoy your own DIY system.
Contactor boards - how to do this?
What is a contact board anyway? Contact boards or prototype boards allow you to build electronic device projects quickly and easily. Some time ago, designs were built on the so-called "spider", that is soldered or twisted in the air. Thanks to contact boards, which quickly gained popularity, DIY has become much easier. The boards are durable, do not damage system components and are easy to use. You will find the PCBs and the necessary components for them in our contact plate accessories section.
Accessories as a helping hand
Using the PCB accessories section, you can quickly and easily stock up on the essentials for every electronics engineer working with systems such as Arduino and Raspberry Pi. How do I place components on a contact board? Remember to only insert one leg of a component or connection cable per hole on the board, except in exceptional situations. The most important thing is to know how the plates inside the board are connected. This is the most common cause of all kinds of errors for beginners.
Begin your adventure with electronics
At the beginning of your adventure with electronics, it is worthwhile to get acquainted with basic terms such as voltage, resistance, power supply, current, resistor, capacitor, Ohm's and Kirchhoff's law or diodes. With elementary knowledge, it will be much easier to create designs of electronic devices. Why is it worth exploring the world of electronics? Apart from having a lot of fun, it is worth having basic knowledge, e.g. in order to repair a faulty USB port or classic jack socket. Electronics allows you to develop manual skills - it also teaches accuracy, precision and diligence.
Training leads to mastery
Thanks to electronics, you will learn to think logically, thanks to the queen of sciences - mathematics and its close cousin - physics. Applying their laws teaches creative and abstract thinking. By creating various electronic projects, you will join the community of DIY enthusiasts and hobbyists for whom nothing is impossible. If you browse through the PCB accessories section, you will quickly discover that electronics is not an expensive hobby. There are some expensive components, but to get you started, inexpensive kits of up to £100 are enough. If you decide that this is not for you, you can save yourself from spending a lot of money, as is the case in many other areas.
