Description

The Raspberry Pi Power / Fan HAT is a combination of two of our most popular Raspberry Pi add-ons. This board is based on the same beefy 3A 5V DC/DC converter found on our Power and Power RTC HAT and features the same 40mm fan used on our Fan HAT. Combined, this will comfortably power your Pi from 7-16V while keeping it cool under heavy load.

The power supply is fused and reverse polarity protected and provides power to the Pi by way of the GPIO header. The Fan runs as long as power is available. Simply connect your DC supply to the screw terminals and this board will keep your Pi3 / 3+ / 4 happy running under heavy load all day long! We recommend keeping the input voltage to 7-16VDC to prevent the regulator from getting too warm.

Finally, we have also added an optional 2 pin footprint on the board for a 2.54mm / 0.100” connector for use as a soft shutdown / restart. With dtoverlay=gpio-shutdown enabled in your /boot/config.txt file, connecting these two pins will trigger the Pi to perform a shutdown. Press the button again, and the Pi will boot right up. We recommend using a momentary pushbutton for this feature. At this time, the Pi 4 is only capable of shutdown and will not restart without modifying the bootloader.

This version of the board is fully assembled and requires no soldering. If you prefer to choose your own 2×20 header, we also have the Pi Power / Fan HAT available with no header attached.

Please Note: Raspberry Pi is sold separately.

    Any opportunity for this to send the same soft shutdown automatically if it detects low input voltage vs needing a momentary switch?

    • Chris @ BCR

      Hi Jeremy,

      Thanks for the note – not within the board itself as the Pi wouldn’t be able to detect the voltage itself. You would need an analog to digital converter and voltage divider (at a minimum) to read the voltage itself on the input, and a larger capacitor bank to provide enough time for everything to occur in the shutdown process. You could add the additional components to a proto HAT and stack this on top (in theory). Hope that helps!

    Does the fan stop when you shut down the pi? or does it just stay on as long as power is connected?

    • Chris @ BCR

      Hi Tristan,

      The fan will run as long as there is power to this board – let us know if you have further questions!

    Hello,
    This is a good board for my use. Can you tell me which GPIO pins the “Shutdown” button uses?
    I was reading another article (https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/raspberry-pi-safe-reboot-and-shutdown-button/all) that suggests using a pull up resistor ro the pins arent floating. Do you have any comments? I will be experimenting later today.
    Thanks you in advance,
    …Brent…

      Hi Brent!

      GPIO 3 is pulled out to the footprint on the board. When using the dtoverlay=gpio-shutdown in your config.txt as a method of control, the GPIO is pulled high and shorted to ground to reset so no resistor is required.
