Pi Knox

Product Description

Raspberry Pi 2-channel Solid State Relay and PSU for 6-24 VDC Applications

Pi Knox does two things:

  1. Powers your Pi from a 6-24V power source... simple as that.
  2. Allows your Pi to control two loads from two GPIO powered from the same 6-24V source itself is powered through the Pi Knox. The current version can deliver up to 1.5A, combined, to the output channels

The production version for this campaign will have several improvements:

  1. Input reverse-polarity protection and on/off switch
  2. Choice of GPIO via switches 
    • OUT1-GPIO4/17
    • OUT2-GPIO22/27
  3. Output can deliver up to 3A combined or 3A on a single channel
  4. Choice of barrel jack or screw terminal for power connections

Pi Knox

Vin 6-24VDC/2.4A max
Vout 6-24VDC/3A max (shared between 2 channels)

  • OUT1-GPIO4/17
  • OUT2-GPIO22/27

Production version will be available with all components assembled, board tested, and loose connectors

Included you will receive a 40-pin stackable header and 3 screw terminals, plus 3 barrel jacks to solder so you can choose the one that fits your application best (or perhaps use a barrel jack for input and screw terminals for output etc.)

    Campaign goal changed to 50pcs... This is my first GroupGets project and despite the fact it will cost me more to make a batch especially with recent improvements, i want to thank everybody interested to it and make as many as possible...

    Covid and shipping dont go well together as most people already know.. for some of us depending on the country we live in and its own conditions for lockdown and shipping company status, things can be even more difficult.
    PCB & components for Pi-Knox ordered about 10 days after campaign ended successfully thanks to all of you, but so far i have only received the pcb and those after 5 months delay.. components are still showing stuck in some depot in Athens with no idea when they will be processed and go through customs so i can finally start assembling your Pi-Knox..

    I have managed to assemble the first Pi-Knox though using components from the prototypes i made earlier and parts from stock.. its a bit inferior in capabilities as i cannot exceed 12V for testing and had to improvise (ie replaced fuse with a simple diode and instead of 2.4A buck converter used the 1.8A i had -pin compatible ICs-) but the design is solid and works perfectly fine and is absolutely sure to work within the specs when assembled with the right parts.
