external image thumb_212_Active-Buzzer2.jpg

Buzzer Module (makes sound with voltage applied) [Digital Output]. This small sound module can be driven by an Arduino output pin. When the pin is set to HIGH (with the - terminal of this module grounded) it puts out a constant buzz or beep. NOTE: the Long pin is + (Arduino Pin)

NOTE: Price EACH at Generator

external image thumb_211_PassiveBeeper2.jpg

Beeper Module (Makes different sounds/tones with Arduino TONE Library) [Analog Output]. This small sound module can be driven by an Arduino output pin. The + pin is marked on the case. A pulse of current will make it click. A series of pulses will cause it to output a tone, and you can control the frequency. Both pins are the same length.
NOTE: Price EACH at Generator
