Using ATX PSU’s to power RepRap 3D printers has always been a hassle. Cutting the ATX cables, lots of soldering, plugging into the PI to use with Octoprint, and hope you get it right. There are a lot of dead Pi’s because of this.
Then we designed and built the ATXPiHat. This is designed to ease this process. Plug in the 24 pin ATX Molex connector, screw the existing power cables from the old supply into the 12v connectors on the hat and install the plugin into Octoprint. Installation instructions are available on GitHub. That’s it. There are a lot more features than just powering the printer.
Note: Depending on interest, eventually we would like to have a bundle with EPO, fan and basic LED strip. Please let me know if there is interest!
Disclaimer, this board has not been tested by an independent lab such as UL, or anyone else. You use it at your own risk. Each board is shipped tested and should work properly out of the box. They are designed to work with a Raspberry Pi 3b and Zero. However, all the work has been done on Pi 3b’s. I will work hard with the user to make sure that everything is good, however like anything in the RepRap space, you are responsible if you burn your house down. Never, and I mean never, use this board and or your printer unsupervised. I will not be held accountable for anything that happens while using this board. Again, use it at your own risk.
