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.
It is comaptaible with the MaticBox Automation (tall) Cover
I. Fan Control
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.
II. 5V Connector
Use of 5V connector as output – You can connect hats or other devices which need to be supplied with 5V.
Use of 5V connector as input – You can power your raspberry via this connector from an external power supply. It can be very convenient when you have several Pi’s and you can power them from one source. Power supply cables can run on either side of the MaticBox. This way you don’t have to set aside space on the side for the power connector that is on the Raspberry Pi itself. This will allow you to mount many Pi`s close to each other, with the power cables coming out from under the cover of MaticBox.
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.
