Let's get buzzy ! Create chirps, buzzes, hums and other funny noises with this actuator.
Wired by default for use with the WiDig or USB-microDig but can also be used with Wi-microDig and Digitizer.
- A quick and easy way to create a sound alarm.

- Our EditorX software allows you to configure the digitizer to control multiple actuators simultaneously with on/off as well as PWM signals.
- Our Link software allows you to multiple actuators simultaneously with on/off signals.
- Make sure the actuator is plugged into the digitizer with the red wire connected to power. Reversing the plug may cause damage to the sensor.
- Can be used directly with the WiDig or USB-microDig actuator outputs (top row of the connector for sensors and actuators), as well as with a Wi-microDig with firmware v6.3. Can also be used with the Digitizer outputs (ie. the power supply pins of inputs 25 - 32) but the white wire needs to be connected to the same pin as the red wire.
- To use with a Wi-microDig with firmware v6.3 or higher move the pin of the plug that is connected to the white wire to the free position between the ground and power pins (ie. the pins connected to the black and red wires). Use a pointy object, eg. a tiny screw driver or sharp knife to take the pin out of the slot by slightly depressing the metal lever through the cutout for the pin attached to the white wire. Then, after having taken out the pin, push the lever out again a bit so that after placing the pin in the slot between the red and black wires, the lever blocks the pin from coming out of the slot. You can see these steps on page 4 and 5 of the HackPlugs v1.0 manual.
- Can be controlled with on (5V) / off (0V) signals which results in "tick" impulse sounds, as well as pulse width modulated (PWM) signals which result in sustained "beep" sounds.
