Pimoroni Automation HAT Mini

The Pimoroni Automation HAT Mini is perfect for home automation projects, giving your greenhouse intelligent sprinklers, for scheduling your fish feeding, or for controlling low-voltage lighting systems. The Automation HAT Mini is equipped with a relay, three buffered inputs three outputs, and three analog inputs, all of which are 24V-tolerant. Last but not least, the HAT has a beautiful 0.96" full-color IPS LCD to display the status of your systems.

Use the buffered inputs to sense the on/off state of your devices, or get more granularity with the analog inputs that measure the input voltage with 12-bit accuracy. The sinking outputs can sink a total of 500mA across the three channels. For higher-current loads, you can use the relay that can tolerate up to 2A at 24V, and take advantage of the normally-open or normally-closed sides to give the correct failover state.

A female header is added on the underside of the board with the correct pinout for the Pimoroni breakout range. This opens up a whole host of nifty possibilities!

  • 0.96" color LCD (160x80)
  • 1 x 24V @ 2A relay (NC and NO terminals)
  • 3 x 12-bit ADC @ 0-24V (ADS1015) (±2% accuracy)
  • 3 x 24V tolerant buffered inputs
  • 3 x 24V tolerant sinking outputs
  • 3.5mm screw terminals
  • Pimoroni breakout-compatible pin header
  • Mini HAT-format board
  • Fully-assembled (no soldering required)
  • Compatible with all 40-pin header Raspberry Pi models
  • Dimensions: 65mm x 30mm x 16.8mm

Pimoroni Automation HAT Mini Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

3 Programming

Skill Level: Competent - The toolchain for programming is a bit more complex and will examples may not be explicitly provided for you. You will be required to have a fundamental knowledge of programming and be required to provide your own code. You may need to modify existing libraries or code to work with your specific hardware. Sensor and hardware interfaces will be SPI or I2C.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

2 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.
