Velleman is rebranding its range of electronic kits and modules and as if that wasn't enough, they have changed the product orders codes (SKUs) that we have come to know so well.
In most cases, the numerical part of the product order codes used by the new Whadda branded kits and modules remains the same as those used in the old Velleman branded products they replace. However, the simple lettering system previously used to prefix the number of K forKit, MK (MiniKit) and VM (Velleman Module) has changed to what initially appeared to be a meaningless array of letters including WSSA, WSAA, WST, VMB, etc. For example, MK198 is now WSMI198 and K8118 is now WSAK8118. Simple and obvious right?
Thanks to some research by our friendly Velleman sales rep, we both now understand the convention used to create these seemingly random letter prefixes.
