Description [Hide]

This item is currently 20% off its $99.95 USD / 104.95 CAD retail price, while quantities last.

If your prop or display control project is a more advanced than what the Prop-1 can handle, it's time for you to move up to the Prop-2 Controller. This controller is best suited for applications including:

  • Holiday / museum displays
  • Special FX & prop
  • Small-scale industrial control

The Prop-2 is based on the very popular Basic Stamp 2® by Parallax, and has been augmented to make it perfect for this application. Here's what it features:

  • 16 I/O pins
  • 9-24VDC power input
  • Outputs can control TTL (5VDC), and hobby servos, or higher power devices via the ULN2803A drivers to power 12-24VDC solenoids, low-voltage lamps and small DC motors
  • Dual connectors for all I/O (3-pin headers for TTL I/O; terminal blocks for high-current, open-collector outputs)
  • All I/O lines are protected with inline resistors
  • Optional pull-up / pull-down setup resistors on pins P12 to P15.
  • 3-position power switch allows use of single power or dual isolated power (for mixed voltage projects).
  • Programmable with the free Parallax Basic Stamp Editor or MacBS2 IDE (for Mac systems)
  • Small and tidy size makes it easy to hide in your project

We recommend a 12VDC 1A power adapter for this kit.
