Do you need a solution for home automation, hydroponics, light industrial automation, and other related predicaments? Take control of and monitor your world with Pimoroni’s Automation HAT — an ultimate jack-of-all-trades Raspberry Pi HAT!
With relays, analog channels, powered outputs, and buffered inputs (all 24V tolerant), this home monitoring and automation controller allows you to hook up a plethora of goodies to your Raspberry Pi all at once. Better still, each channel has an indicator LED which means you can see what’s happening with your setup at a glance. Even the analog channels have dimming LEDs that allow you to see the value they are currently sensing.
Compatible with all versions of Raspberry Pi that have the 40-pin GPIO header (3, 2, B+, A+, Zero), and comes fully assembled!
3 x 24V @ 2A relay (NC and NO terminals)
3 x 12-bit ADC @ 0-24V
3 x 24V tolerant buffered inputs
3 x 24V tolerant sinking outputs
15 x channel indicator LEDs
1 x 12-bit ADC @ 0-3.3V
3.5mm screw terminals
Power, Comms, and Warn! LED indicators
Extra GPIO: TX (#14), RX (#15), #25
Please note: We recommend you use a set of Brass M2.5 Standoffs with the Automation HAT to avoid pins contacting the HDMI port if the HAT is pushed down.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
