"Wake On Event" feature allows startup or shutdown of your Pi based on any various inputs, such as input voltage levels or digital inputs. This is perfect for automotive computers and can be set to power on and off your Raspberry Pi based on engine running state with only one power input! Also useful in solar applications.
Built in 90% efficient 5v switch mode power supply for powering the Pi
Wide input voltage range, 12v to a 30v input, using common regulated or non regulated adapters
An automotive grade TVS (transcient voltage suppressor) protects your Pi from when used in a harse automotive power environment.
Full two way communications between UPS and Pi, including reporting of Vin and Vbatt levels.
Optional INA219 current sensor wired to the 5v power for the Pi. Monitor real time voltage, current and power consumed by your Pi!
Four 10-bit ADC INPUTS! And numerous other input and output pins user configurable*
Watchdog timer! Auto reboots the Pi if it crashes!
Onboard buttons for easy shutdown/reboot, optional top mount button available and external buttons can be added easily.
Onboard RTC with timer based (Wake On Timer) power on/off capability, great for remote battery powered applications to conserve power.
*Hardware is built in, firmware support coming soon.
Here is the second version of the popular MoPower UPS. We have taken the core of what made our original UPS popular and expanded it's capabilities and specifications. More then just a full featured UPS for the Raspberry Pi, the MoPower features a highly flexible design featuring highly configurable power control logic, which make it suitable for many projects. It has been used successfully in many scientific, industrial, automotive, and solar projects around the world.
NOTICE: This product is intended for use by experienced users. Batteries are dense sources of energy and must be handled properly. Users should be familiar with proper battery handling/use, general electronics design and safety. Improper use can pose hazards. Detailed information is available here.
Optional INA219 current sensor addon is available HERE. Note the INA219 option must be ordered at the same time as the UPS as it adds optional components to the PC board itself.
Thank you for your support.
