PIFACE RELAY PLUS

Mon Oct 10, 2016 10:10 am

Hi

We are doing a project, we have set up using a piface relay plus to control pumps BUT!! it seems piface relay plus no longer available on farnell?

Anyone have any news about this or an alternative device or a source where we can buy a few from?

Thanks

Roy

this Pi relay base may be suitable, but be aware that it's quite a bit bigger than the pi footprint.

You can look into an I2C relay shield with a solid state relay controller.
something like this

if you are using this to control pump I will suggest going with a solid state relay controller. the main advantage of using off-board solid stat relay controller is that it will keep your Pi safe from all kinds of noise and back emf.

Thank you very much

We ended up designing our own pi hat with everything on it, just need to sort out power now, we have to power the pi screen, the pi and the pumps, at the moment we have 3 separate power supplies
