This module is designed to power and monitor the current consumption of a Raspberry PI (not included) SBC from any AC DC wall adapter with an input voltage range of 7.5Vdc to 36Vdc. In addition to powering the Raspberry Pi it has an Auxiliary Power Bus that includes Vout (direct connection to the input source) and 5Vdc. These extra power ports are provided to power additional circuits.
The power monitoring capability is accomplished using a TI INA226 to measure the current and bus voltage for each output. These devices are accessed via the I2C bus.
Raspberry Pi Not Included
We're continually adding custom circuits to the Raspberry Pi for various elelctronic system development needs and automated tesing. We needed a method to have one power source that we could vary the voltage source depending upon the environment. For the automotive industry 12Vdc is the dominent power source. For factory automation we see alot of 24Vdc systems.
We also needed a simply way to monitor the power consumption of the Raspberry Pi system with all its add-ons.
It makes powering the Raspberry Pi simple and more versatile.
If you need a little more power checkout our PWRM17225-17W version. It provides up to 17.5W at 5Vdc and also has an additional power port at 3.3V up to 800(mA).
