Hobbywing 5V 3A UBEC Step-Down Converter (3C3 Hobbywing power converter)

UBEC's (Universal Battery Eliminator Circuit's) are simply DC to DC step down voltage regulators! This UBEC is perfect for the Raspberry Pi, as it's able to take high voltages (5.5V up to 26V), and outputs a consistent safe voltage of 5V at up to 3A nominal or 5A max! The Hobbywing 5V 3A UBEC is a switch-mode type, which results in it being much more efficient than linear type UBEC's (so your batteries will last longer!)

UBEC's are perfect for applications where you plan to use the Raspberry Pi in a circuit with high voltages such as robots where you'll be driving motors!

Due to the voltage drop caused by the Raspberry Pi, it is recommended to input a minimum of 6.5V to receive a stable 5V output. Anything lower than 6.5V will result in a low voltage warning on the Pi.

Please Note. The Hobbywing UBEC can be set to output either 5V or 6V using an onboard jumper select! Please DOUBLE CHECK your output voltage is correct before connecting your microcontroller or circuit! 

Features

  • Designed with an advanced switch mode DC-DC regulator IC.
  • Battery polarity reversal protection.
  • A metal shield covers almost all the electronic components, and a specially made filter is attached to the output wires to significantly reduce the electromagnetic interference.
  • The working status is shown by an indicator (LED), which lights when the output is in normal range.
  • Output Voltage: [email protected] or [email protected] (Changeable with an output-voltage select jumper)
  • Continuous output current: 3 Amps
  • Maximum output current: 5 Amps
  • Input: 5.5V - 26V (2 - 6 cells lithium battery pack or 5 - 18 cells NiMH /NiCd battery)
  • Size: 43mm*17mm*7mm (L*W*H)
  • Weight: 11g

While it works out of the box. You can also reprogram it using an Attiny MCU programmer. Code and Guides are included are downloadable from here. There is a package which include both the Switch and Programmer

Being Hackable, the firmware can be modified so that the switch can be used as a development board with these functions:

  • One output to trigger relay
  • One output to LED
  • One analog input to detect voltage between 0-5v
  • One input for push button
  • One input for infrared receiver which I have the code to distinguish all the buttons in the remote included

Raspberry Pi Power over Ethernet (PoE) HAT (3B4 POE hat)

Getting started

The Raspberry Pi Power over Ethernet HAT is a small accessory for the Raspberry Pi computer. It can only be used with the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B (launched June 2019) and the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ (launched March 2018). The PoE HAT allows you to power your Raspberry Pi using Power over Ethernet–enabled networks; for this product to be used, the network it is connected to needs to have power-sourcing equipment installed.

Supplied with this product

  • Raspberry Pi PoE HAT
  • Mechanical spacers

Other hardware needed

  • A Raspberry Pi 4 Model B or Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+
  • An Ethernet cable
  • Power-sourcing equipment for a 802.3af Power over Ethernet network

Connecting your PoE HAT to the Raspberry Pi

  • Before installing the PoE HAT, you must attach the supplied spacers in the four corners of the board
  • Then connect the Raspberry Pi PoE HAT to the two 0.1” headers (40 + 4) that are fitted on the Raspberry Pi
  • Once the PoE HAT board is connected, you can power the Raspberry Pi through its RJ45 network connector

Disconnecting your PoE HAT

  • Take care when separating the HAT from the Pi
  • Pull evenly so that it detaches from all the pins at the same rate; do not pull one end of the connector off before the other

Additional information

No modification to the main Raspberry Pi board is needed for this product to work. Please ensure that your Raspberry Pi’s software is up to date for all functionality to be available. The PoE HAT is fitted with a small fan that is controlled by the Raspberry Pi via I2C. The fan will turn on and off automatically depending on the temperature of the main processor on the Raspberry Pi.

Specification

The Raspberry Pi PoE HAT is an add-on board for the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B and the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+. It allows the Raspberry Pi to be powered via a power-enabled Ethernet network.

  • 802.3af PoE
  • Fully isolated switched-mode power supply
  • 37–57V DC, Class 2 device
  • 5V/2.5A DC output

PiJuice HAT - A Portable Power Platform For Every Raspberry Pi (C5 PiJuice)

As one of the smallest systems around there are so many amazing things you could do with the Raspberry Pi if it was self-powered and portable. Introducing PiJuice! A fully uninterruptible power supply that will always keep your Raspberry Pi powered.

Our revolutionary PiAnywhere technology contained in every PiJuice HAT - is the best way to take your Pi off the grid! The real time clock (RTC) on board will let your Pi know what time it is even with no power input or internet connection. Alongside this is an integrated microcontroller (MCU) chip which will manage soft shut down functionality and a true low power deep sleep state and intelligent startup.

You will be able to always keep track of the charge levels and other info with the two built-in tri-coloured RGB LEDs, trigger events and scripts with the three programmable buttons and since the PiJuice will use up to just five of your GPIO pins (just power and I2C), the rest are free to diversify your project. The stacking header allows you to continue to use your existing HATs and add-ons with PiJuice.

Keep your Raspberry Pi running with solar, wind and other renewable power.

Ultimate integrated power is one thing but what if we could make the Raspberry Pi renewably powered too? Solar, wind, thermoelectric and other renewable power is free, clean, and green and we're proud to have developed an affordable and efficient renewable power solution for the Raspberry Pi! PiJuice is self-monitoring and, like a space satellite, can become a completely autonomous system. Use the PiJuice as part of an autonomous camera system, weather stations, off-grid desktops, and so many other great outdoor projects. View and buy the solar panels separately.

PiJuice Features:

  • Onboard 1820 mAh off the shelf Lipo / LiIon battery for ~4 to 6 hours in constant use! (with support for larger Lipo Battery of 5000 or 10,000 mAH+ to last up to 24 hrs +)

UPS PIco - Uninterruptible Power Supply (HV3.0B+) (3B6 UPS PIco HV3.0B+)

Update! HV3.0B+ now fully compatible with the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ (and all previous revisions!)

Please Note: Raspberry Pi is not included

The UPS PIco HV3.0B+ Stack 450 is an advanced uninterruptible power supply for the Raspberry Pi A+/B+/2/3/3B+, that adds a wealth of innovative power back-up functionality and development features to the innovative microcomputer! The UPS PIco will automatically shut-down your Raspberry Pi if there is a power failure, and can be set to automatically monitor and reboot your Pi once power has been restored!

The UPS PIco HV3.0B+ Stack features a 5V 3A output, designed for use on the latest Raspberry Pi 3B+, and has the gold reset pin in the correct place!

The UPS PIco is equipped with a 450mAh LiPO battery specially designed to enable safe shutdown during a power cut. Additionally, this can be easily upgraded to the extended 4000mAh or 8000mAh versions, which enables prolonged use of a Raspberry Pi for up to 16 hours without a power supply connected!

The UPS PIco features an embedded measurement system that continuously checks the powering voltage of the Raspberry Pi. When the cable power on the Raspberry Pi is absent, insufficient, or the device detects a power failure, the UPS Pico automatically switches to the unit’s battery source. The module then continues to check the voltage on the Pi and switches automatically back to the regular cable supply when power is once again available.

The UPS PIco is powered and the battery pack intelligently charged via the GPIO pins on the Raspberry Pi, so no additional cabling or power supply is required. Because the UPS Pico requires no external powering and fits within the footprint of the Raspberry Pi, it is compatible with most cases.

The UPS PIco can also be equipped with an optional Infra-Red Receiver which is routed directly to GPIO18 via the PCB for remote IR operations. Additionally the PIco includes an Automatic Temperature Control PWM FAN controller, and can be equipped with a Micro Fan Kit, which enables the use of the Raspberry Pi in extreme conditions including very high temperature environments. The UPS PIco is designed to be 100% compliant with HAT standards for the Raspberry Pi and includes a Gold Plated Reset Pin, with install locations for the Raspberry Pi Zero, B+/2 and 3.
