Pi-oT MKR Module Enclosure Routes Raspberry Pi GPIO’s to Screw Terminals, includes a Breadboard (Crowdfunding)

Raspberry Pi DIN Rail Enclosure

Last summer Pi-oT introduced a Raspberry Pi add-on board of the same name targeting commercial & industrial IoT automation. The project was launched on Kickstarter and backers should have received their rewards. The DIN-rail enclosure included with the RPi HAT was popular, so they decided to work on a Pi-OT MKR module enclosure with a similar form factor but instead of using screw terminals for ADC input and relays, they routed some of Raspberry Pi GPIO pins to the terminal, added a breadboard to the case for prototyping, as well as a fan for cooling. Pi-oT MKR module key features: Features: Compatible with any Raspberry Pi board with 40-pin GPIO header Screw terminals – 21 GPIO’s including the I2C pins, 5V, 3.3V and GND from Raspberry Pi header routed to screw terminals Integrated Breadboard Integrated Cooling – 5V header for included fan Circuit Protection Port protection – 330 Ohm resistor […]
