Pi-EzConnect makes it possible to connect multiple sensors (and other electronic devices / components) to multiple GPIOs on a Raspberry Pi. With Pi-EzConnect, you are no longer limited in the use of a Raspberry Pi. Leverage all the GPIO pins on the Raspberry Pi.
Whether the Raspberry Pi is used as a data logger, a drone, a robot, for video surveillance or anything else, you need to connect sensors as well as other electronic components such as pull up or pull down resistors, LED’s etc. These sensors are then managed by the Raspberry Pi. Pi-EzConnect stacks on top of a Raspberry Pi making it possible to add multiple sensors to the Raspberry Pi in the same foot print as the Raspberry Pi. Further, these sensors are securely connected using terminal blocks.
- Allows multiple digital sensors (GPIO) to be connected to a single Raspberry Pi – leveraging the full power of the Raspberry Pi
- Solderless or soldered connections for all GPIO’s on a Raspberry Pi
- Mini breadboard for adding components
- Add standard male or female headers for breadboard like functionality
- Power (both 5V and 3.3V) as well as ground connections available
- Fuses protect 5V bus as well as 3.3 V bus
- Compact footprint – fits easily on top of a Raspberry Pi
- Fully documented pins – easily connect to pin numbers or GPIO number without referring to external charts
The following peripherals are recommended.
PiZ-UpTime: UPS for a Pi using one Li-Ion 14500 battery, ideal for Pi Zero. UPS 5V via header or USB Power out. A micro-USB to micro-USB cable is provided for Pi Zeros which do not have the header installed.
Pi-UpTimeUPS: UPS for Pi-2 or Pi-3 using one/two 18650 batteries. Provides UPS 3.3V and 5V. Includes reset switch and provision for external reset switch. Pi-BB: Bread board with 300 connect points. Use this board to add other breakout boards with the Pi.
Pi-BB-RPS: Dual DC RPS-power breadboard, including 7-24V and USB power. 5V and 3.3V generated on board. Dual power provides Redundant Power Supply (RPS). Combine RPS with UPS power by connecting the Power out port on the Pi-BB-RPS to the power in port on Pi-UpTimeUPS. Also use the bread board for connecting other breakout ports. Use available 7V to 24V power to power the whole system. Use the over 240 connection points with breakout boards such as a Real-Time-Clock for off-grid uses.
Pi-BB: Bread board with 300 connect points. Power Pi and electronics. 5V and 3.3V Power bus is provided. Use the over 300 connection points with breakout boards such as a Real-Time-Clock for off-grid uses.
Pi-16ADC for 16 bit, 16 channel Analog to digital converter board for attaching analog sensors or monitoring other capabilities on the Raspberry Pi.
Pi-EzConnect: Secure GPIO connections for Pi-2 and Pi-3.
PiZ-EzConnect: Secure GPIO connections for Pi Zero. Can also be used with Pi-2 and Pi-3. Small compact Pi Zero format.
PiZ-EzConnect KIT: Build your own connector for Pi Zero or Pi-2, Pi-3 using PiZ-EzConnect board. Soldering required.
Pi Models Supported
By default, we ship the larger, 40 pin connectors which works with the Raspberry Pi+ (models A+, B+, Pi-2 and Pi-3, and other vendors adhering to the HAT standard). Pi-Zero is also supported, as long as a 40 pin header is soldered onto the Pi-Zero. The mounting holes for the standoff for Pi-zero are such that only two standoffs can be connected.
Older models of the Raspberry Pi with a 26 pin header are not supported
