HATL01FP Fan Auto-Control for Raspberry Pi with 5V pins
2.75 € excl. VAT
Do you want to extend the life of your fan, reduce its noise and control it automatically?
With this MaticControl fan module you can! As a bonus, the second connector provides access to the 5V pins.
Place it on pins 1-8. (As shown in the photos) And this is all you have to do on the hardware.
Then from Raspberry icon > Prefernces> Raspberry Pi Configuration > Performance tab >set fan enable; Fan GPIO 4; and the temperature at which you want the fan to turn on. Save with OK
Thus, when the processor reaches the temperature you set, the fan will turn on. It will turn on off only when the processor temperature drops 10 degrees below the set on temperature. (For example, if you set the On temperature to 75 degrees, the fan will turn off when the processor reaches 65 degrees).
With these few easy steps, you now have automatic fan control.
Note: This MaticControl module covers the pins for: I2C and GPIO14 (TXD). If you want to use them, we offer modules (HATs) that provide access to these pins via separate connector on the top of the board.
It is comaptaible with the MaticBox Automation Cover
