Rock 3

Due to the increase in price and availability problems in Raspberry Pi equipment, we have looked for an alternative product to be able to offer remote control solutions for our ARS-USB, RemoteBox and StackMain equipment.

From now on we have the Rock 3A – Rock 3C solution that will allow us to offer a similar solution with even better features than the classic RsPi 3B+.

Rock 3 devices running with OS. Debian is a perfect solution for remote and local control of all our controllers.

You can visit this link from the manufacturer OKdo where you can see the comparison between the Rock 3 vs RsPi 3B+ equipments. Link HERE

We have reached a distribution agreement for Begali keys for Spain.

Pietro Begali develops and produces some of the best Morse keys in the world and we are proud to be able to offer these high quality keys in Spain as well. We start cooperation in March 2023.

Unfortunately we cannot have all the models with their options in stock, so please send me an email and I’ll give you delivery times.

Global Shortage of Components and Stock Issues

There is a problem of electronic components and we are not exempt from this worldwide problem.

The pandemic caused the temporary closure of factories but, above all, with the rise of teleworking, the demand for electronic equipment has multiplied and has caused a real problem of supplying low-cost microprocessors and components in general.

To date we have been able to continue manufacturing and supplying our equipment, although in recent months, we have been forced to have access to opportunistic companies that had stock, with which there have been components that we have had to pay x5 or even x10, but we have also found that there are certain components that are not currently available and in some cases there is no plan “B”. There are some components for which our usual supplier gives us delivery dates of February/2023.

Our usual component suppliers tell us that by 2023 we will apparently return to the previous situation, but what is certain is that during this 2022 being able to manufacture some of our equipment is a complex task and our costs have gone through the roof.

We regret this circumstance and we are forced to report it.
