Please note: Raspberry Pi not included

The Explorer HAT and Explorer HAT Pro are the perfect prototyping side-kicks for your Raspberry Pi!

We've added a heap of useful input and output options that will take your projects to the next level. Great for driving motors, using analog sensors, interfacing with 5V systems, and touch (even fruit based!) interfaces.

It's compatible with Raspberry Pi 2, Pi 3, B+, and A+ and comes fully assembled.

Features:

  • Four buffered 5V tolerant inputs
  • Four powered 5V outputs (up to 500mA!)
  • Four capacitive touch pads
  • Four capacitive crocodile clip pads
  • Four coloured LEDs
  • PRO ONLY Four analog inputs
  • PRO ONLY Two H-bridge motor drivers
  • PRO ONLY A heap of useful (unprotected) 3v3 goodies from the GPIO
  • A mini breadboard on top!

5V tolerant inputs - Hook up your Pi to accept input from 5V systems (like Arduino Uno/Leonardo or 5V Trinkets). We've used a 5-channel buffer that will accept anything from 2V-5V as logic high.

5V powered ouputs - The onboard darlington array can supply up to 500mA per channel (but you'll be limited to driving around 1A total from the board). Ideal for stepper motors, solenoids, and relays.

Eight capacitive inputs - Four along the front edge for touch input (labelled 1, 2, 3, 4) and four up the side for attaching crocodile clips to objects (such as fruit, or tin foil) for experimentation!

Four coloured LEDs - Independently controllable LEDs (red, green, blue, and yellow) that make great status indicators.

Four analog inputs (pro only) - A tidy way to integrate analog signals into your project.

Two H-Bridge motor drivers (pro only) - Drive two 5V motors bidirectionally with up to 200mA per channel. Ideal with our micro-metal gear-motors to create the perfect little buggy! You can even soft-PWM for full speed control.

Adafruit DC & Stepper Motor HAT - Mini Kit (1D4 Adafr DC & Step Mini Kit)

Let your robotic dreams come true with the new DC+Stepper Motor HAT from Adafruit. This Raspberry Pi add-on is perfect for any motion project as it can drive up to 4 DC or 2 Stepper motors with full PWM speed control.

Raspberry Pi and motors are not included.

Since the Raspberry Pi does not have a lot of PWM pins, we use a fully-dedicated PWM driver chip onboard to both control motor direction and speed. This chip handles all the motor and speed controls over I2C. Only two pins (SDA & SCL) are required to drive the multiple motors, and since it's I2C you can also connect any other I2C devices or HATs to the same pins.

In fact, you can even stack multiple Motor HATs, up to 32 of them, for controlling up to 64 stepper motors or 128 DC motors (or a mix of the two) - just remember to purchase and solder in a stacking header instead of the one we include.

Motors are controlled by TB6612 MOSFET drivers with 1.2A per channel and 3A peak current capabilitya big improvement over L293D drivers and there are built-in flyback diodes as well.

We even had a little space so we added a polarity protection FET on the power pins and a bit of prototyping area. And the HAT is assembled and tested here at Adafruit so all you have to do is solder on the included 2x20 plain header and the terminal blocks.

Lets check out these specs again:

  • 4 H-Bridges: TB6612 chipset provides 1.2A per bridge (3A peak) with thermal shutdown protection, internal kickback protection diodes. Can run motors on 4.5VDC to 13.5VDC.
  • Up to 4 bi-directional DC motors with individual 8-bit speed selection (so, about 0.5% resolution)
  • Up to 2 stepper motors (unipolar or bipolar) with single coil, double coil, interleaved or micro-stepping.
  • Big terminal block connectors to easily hook up wires (18-26AWG) and power
  • Polarity protected 2-pin terminal block and jumper to connect external 5-12VDC power
  • Works best with Raspberry Pi model A+, B+, Pi 2 B or Pi 3 B.
  • Install the easy-to-use Python library, check out the examples and you're ready to go!

Comes with an assembled & tested HAT, terminal blocks, and 2x20 plain header. Some soldering is required to assemble the headers on. Stacking header not included.

Raspberry Pi, motors, and battery pack are not included but we have lots of motors in the shop and all our DC motors, and stepper motors work great. Check out Adafruit's detailed tutorial for tons of info including schematics, wiring diagrams, python libraries and example walkthroughs.

L293D Dual H-Bridge IC - Solenoid, DC & Stepper Motor Driver (1D3 L293D IC H-bridge)
The L293DNE Dual H-Bridge IC is able to run four solenoids, two DC motors or one bi-polar or uni-polar stepper motor, with up to 600mA per channel!
 
Each chip contains two full H-bridges (four half H-bridges) which means you can drive four solenoids, two DC motors bi-directionally, or one stepper motor. Just make sure they're good for under 600 mA since that's the limit of this chip. They do handle a peak of 1.2A but that's just for a short amount of time. What we like most about this particular driver is that it comes with built in kick-back diodes internally so you dont have to worry about the inductive kick damaging your project or driver
 
 
The L293D Dual H-Bridge IC - Stepper & DC Motor Driver Features:
  • Dual H-Bridges - run four solenoids, two DC motors, or one uni-polar or bi-polar stepper motor
  • Output Current: 600mA per channel (1.2A Max)
  • No of Channels: 4
  • Input: 5V Logic
  • Supply Voltage Range: 4.5V to 36V

Pan-Tilt HAT kit (1D3 Pan/Tilt HAT kit)

Ideal for a mini CCTV system, this set of horizontal and vertical motion servos will give you Pi camera movement with a minimum of fuss.

Pan-Tilt HAT lets you mount and control one of our pan-tilt modules right on top of your Raspberry Pi. The HAT and its on-board microcontroller let you independently drive the two servos (pan and tilt), as well as driving up to 24 regular LED (with PWM control) or NeoPixel RGB (or RGBW) LEDs. There's also a handy slot through which you can route the servo, LED, and camera cables. The module pans and tilts through 180 degrees in each axis.

Use Pan-Tilt HAT with a Pi camera for face-tracking. Or mount it on top of your roving robot as a set of eyes. Why not stick a foam sword on top and make it swashbuckle?!

There's absolutely no soldering required, as the servos on the pan-tilt module have female jumper wires attached and we've soldered a strip of right-angled header pins to the underside of the HAT to connect them up.

We've also included a handy little acrylic camera mount to hold your camera snugly in the head of the pan-tilt module.

The MagPi said, in their four star review, that Pan-Tilt HAT was a "highly enjoyable and extremely cute accessory".

Features

  • Pan-tilt module (180 degrees motion through each axis) with two servos
  • HAT with two servo channels, one PWM or NeoPixel RGB (or RGBW) LED channel
  • Right-angled header pre-soldered to underside of HAT for servo and LED channels
  • Slot to route servo, LED, and camera cables through
  • Acrylic mount to hold Pi camera and NeoPixel strip (with diffuser) in place
  • Compatible with Raspberry Pi 3, 2, B+, A+, Zero, and Zero W
  • Python library
  • Comes fully assembled

Software

We've put together a super-simple Python library to make it super-easy to control Pan-Tilt HAT. Just tell Pan-Tilt HAT to which angle you'd like it to pan or tilt (from -90 to +90 degrees) and away it goes! There's even a couple of examples showing you how to pan and tilt, and control connected NeoPixels.

Notes

  • The servos draw a lot of current, thus we recommend a good quality 2.5A power supply like the official Raspberry Pi power supply.
  • Connect the brown wires of the servo cables to the GND pins on the servo channels.
  • Servo channel 1 controls pan and servo channel 2 controls tilt, although you can easily swap these in software.
Ideal for a mini CCTV system, this set of horizontal and vertical motion servos will give you Pi camera movement with a minimum of fuss.
