Dive into IoT development with the Arduino flavored Omega2 Starter Kit! With the included Arduino Dock 2, you can supercharge your projects by combining the familiar Arduino platform with the power & connectivity of the Omega2.
This kit includes everything you need to build 11 circuits that will teach you how to control LEDs, read digital and analog inputs, read data from a variety of different sensors, and control external components and displays.
Step by step instructions for building each circuit with the included parts will be found in the online Arduino Dock Starter Kit Guide.
The Ethernet Expansion adds an Ethernet port to your Omega with a maximum connection speed of 100Mbps. While the Omega is all about wireless connectivity, a reliable wired network connection can be a great addition to a project, and the Ethernet Expansion is a great tool for quickly reflashing your Omega’s firmware.
The Servo Expansion adds 16 PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) outputs to your Omega. Connect standard servos directly to the Expansion since each channel has its own 3-pin connectors, making it that much easier to get started with your project! This Expansion is great in any application that requires servos, like a robotics project or anything with moving parts. Given that PWM is so useful, you can also use this Expansion to precisely control LEDs or drive a DC motor using an H-bridge.
The Breadboard Dock brings breadboard compatibility to the Omega! Power the Dock and your Omega with any Micro USB cable and plug it directly into a standard breadboard. The Omega’s pins are mapped 1-to-1 onto the breadboard, allowing you to access all of the Omega’s I/Os in your breadboard project.
This is a pack of 20 16-pin header connectors for the Omega2/Omega2+ modules. You need 2 headers for each module (one per side), so this is enough for 10 modules. The headers can be used if you are creating your own custom PCB and want to be able to insert the module in, just like you do with the Onion Expansion docks.
The Relay Expansion enables your Omega to control two other, independent electrical circuits. The circuits are isolated from the Omega and can operate at much higher or lower voltages than the Omega. So you can control other circuits you’ve built or small household appliances rated up to 60W. This Expansion is perfect for home automation projects since it gives you the ability to control other devices remotely using your Omega.
