ModMyPi PiOT Relay Board (2A3 MMP PiOT relay board)

Raspberry Pi board not included

The ModMyPi PiOT (Pi of Things) relay board is smart! Not quite Skynet smart, so you can tell John Connor to stay at home and play with his Raspberry Pi. But it's much smarter than your average relay board! We've created a Raspberry Pi Relay Board that does away with the complicated wiring and fiddly jumper configuration of your standard relay board, and bundles that control into an on-board PIC, making configuration faster, easier and safer. The PiOT relay board can be connected directly on top of the Pi, or via a GPIO ribbon cable (not included), and also features mounting points for the Raspberry Pi Zero. Each is board is fully assembled, and ready to plug and play! We also stock cases for the Raspberry Pi B+/2/3 & Raspberry Pi Zero.

The PiOT relay board allows you to bond a GPIO pin to a relay with the touch of a button. No need to tie pins using resistors, and no need to re-wire the circuit when you want to change which GPIO pin fires which relay. Simply select your GPIO pin using the on-board tactile buttons and two-digit 7-segment display, and switch that pin high or low to fire your designated relay!

The on-board display can be configured to show the Pi's BCM or Pin number system for GPIO/relay bonding, and also demonstrates visual feedback of the relay on/off status for easy monitoring. The display can also be used to test relays before configuring them with your Pi, in addition to providing menu access for setting configuration.

The PiOT relay board also features multiple innovative start-up modes designed to combat "chatter" on the GPIO which can lead to unexpected behavior. Variable delayed start-up allows users to pause activation of the relays for a short period during boot, ensuring that GPIO pins are correctly set prior to use, or the alternative handshake mode utilises a specific pulse train to enable activation and de-activation of the relay board at the user's will. No more accidental switching of relays at boot!

The PiOT relay board uses low current (~100mA) PWM (pulse width modulation) to significantly reduce the current required to hold the relays on when compared to other relay boards. This means that relay boards can be stacked up to 5 high without requiring additional external power.

Warning! Relays can be used to switch large voltages and currents. Please, please, please be careful when undertaking any work with this type of power - it can kill!

The ModMyPi PiOT Relay Board Features:

  • 4 x OMRON G5LA-1 Relays for Switching up to 10A @ 250VAC, or 10A @ 24VDC
  • 4 x Tactile Buttons for GPIO/Relay Bonding
  • Two-Digit 7 Segment Display for Visual Feedback & Setting Control
  • Micro-controlled GPIO/Relay Setting & Switching (No Jumpers Required!)
  • 40 Point Raspberry Pi GPIO Modelled Input
  • 5V & 3.3V Input Compatible
  • Low Holding Current via PWM ~ 100mA per Relay Board
  • Stackable Relay Board (Up to 5 Without External Power)
  • Multiple Start-Up Modes to Negate Boot GPIO Chatter (Delayed/Handshake)
  • Pi Zero Mounting Points

Relay for micro:bit (3A5 micro:bit Relay board)

The MonkMakes Relay for micro:bit is a solid-state (no moving parts) relay that allows an output of a micro:bit to turn things on and off.

A micro:bit can turn an LED on and off directly, but anything more powerful requires something like a relay or a transistor. Using a transistor to switch something on and off requires a shared ground connection with the micro:bit and a knowledge electronics that you or your students may not be ready for. The MonkMakes Relay for micro:bit is much easier to use, acting like a simple micro:bit controlled switch.

This relay can be used to switch low voltage devices such as light bulbs, a motor, a small heating element or even a string of 12V LED lighting. The voltage needs to be kept under 16V, but the relay will automatically protect itself against too much current.

FEATURES

  • Solid-sate relay (up to 2 Amps)
  • Active LED indicator
  • Resettable ‘polyfuse’ to protect against over-current

Getting Started

Connecting your micro:bit

The Relay requires just two connections to the micro:bit. One to GND (ground) and one to whatever pin is to be used to control the relay’s switching action.

When attaching the alligator clips to the micro:bit, make sure that the clips are perpendicular to the board so that they are not touching any of the neighbouring connectors on the micro:Bit edge connector.

Here’s an example of how you could wire up a MonkMakes Relay for micro:bit to turn an old fashioned light bulb on and off.

HEX File

The quickest way to try out your relay is to DOWNLOAD THIS HEX FILE >and then copy it onto your micro:bit. The program will turn the relay on and off once a second.

JavaScript Blocks Editor

Set the controlling pin to 1 and the relay contacts will close, set it to 0 and the contacts will open again. Its as simple as that. So, to make your relay turn on and off once a second, open the Blocks Editor, add a forever block and then the digital write blocks from the pins category and the pauses from the basic category.

MicroPython

Paste the following code into the Python window and then Download the file and copy it onto your your micro:bit.

from microbit import *

while True:
    pin0.write_digital(True)
    sleep(500)
    pin0.write_digital(False)
    sleep(500)



Analog Outputs

The latest MonkMakes Relay for micro:bit can do more than just switch things on and off. It can also be used with micro:bit analog outputs. Look closely at your Relay for micro:bit and is it has the version number v1ev (under the word ‘Board’) then it can be used with the ‘analog write’ block in the blocks editor or the ‘write_analog’ function in MicroPython. If your board has the version number v1e then it is not suitable for use with analog outputs – sorry you were unlucky to get one of the small batch of first boards to be sold.

The output of the Relay for micro:bit is not linear at low PWM and high PWM values as the following chart illustrates.

The y-axis shows the current in mA for a test load resistor supplied from a constant voltage source. The x-axis is the analog write value (0 to 1023). As you can see, there is a dead zone up to a analog output value of about 100, followed by a relatively good linear region right up to about 1000, after which the output effectively becomes ‘on’.

The tests were carried out at the default PWM frequency of 50Hz for the micro:bit. Lower frequency PWM is expected to produce more linear results.

The MonkMakes Relay for micro:bit is a solid-state (no moving parts) relay that allows an output of a micro:bit to turn things on and off.

Easy to use.
Operating Voltage: DC12V
Maximum Load: 10A
Operating Frequency: 433MHZ
Receiver Sensitivity: -100dBm
Encoding Type: learning code
Board Size: Approx. 5.3x3.1cm/ 2.09x1.22"

  • 10A 30VDC
  • 10A 28VDC

To check compatibility of a new remote with the receiver. Simply press the button on the remote, if the receiver flashes, but does not Triger the relay. The remote will be compatible, and you can start the programing process

To add a remote, press the button on receiver momentarily. The red light will come on. Then press the button on the remote that you want to program in. The red light will start flashing. After 4 flashes in will stop, and the button will be programmed in.

For the setting to take effect, the board needs to be disconnected from it’s power supply. The bellow settings will be done to the 3 headers and bridge pin on the receiver board, above the push button.

  • With the header removed, the On button will switch the relay on, and the off button will in turn switch the relay off.
  • With the header on Pin 1-2. Both Buttons will become momentary. And only hold the relay in place as long as they are pressed in.
  • With the header on Pin 2-3. Each button will be able to switch the relay on and off individually. You will however not be able to switch the button off with the “off” button, if you switched it on with the “on” button. And vise versa.
