Edit, ignore my previous question.  Mike, do you know when these will be available with the new backplate you have ordered?

 

Thanks

Nick

I presume you mean the new transmitter  PCB that includes the hub ring and is also compatible with these plates, as an alternative to the existing pigtail transmitter? I'll have first prototype next week and will update the thread - if successful they should be available to buy within 6 weeks.

These plates as shown are listed in the BlinkStop webshop now.

Yes you are correct, I was after the PCB included in the hub ring. Thanks Mike. 6 weeks give the me time to get the dash off and ready.  Thanks. Nick.

I still have a little work to do, making matching plastic cover plates, but the first 'easy-fit' transmitter is made. It was, err, easy :)

'kind of'. I can't keep any stock still, and I'm in Finland for 2 weeks, so I'm just building to order as usual

My wife (the clever half of the business) has made a little promo video for the new 'Easy-fit' transmitters, showing it with common 280-350mm diameter wheel patterns:

And here is the first 'retail' Easy-fit transmitter finished, ready for attaching to any backplate. It has pre-drilled holes for the common wheel hubs (70mm, 74mm, 50-50.8mm PCD):

A bit too small to play table tennis with, though :d
