It too has lots of LEDs useful for troubleshooting (& visual effects), is able to make quite some noise with the onboard piezo buzzer and comes with push buttons ready to detect your touch. There are three ways to supply power to the Maker Pi RP2040 – via USB (5 V) socket, with a single cell LiPo/Li-Ion battery or through the VIN (3.6-6 V) terminals. However only one power source is needed to power up both controller board and motors at a time. Power supply from all these power sources can all be controlled with the power on/off switch onboard. Cytron Maker Pi RP2040 is basically the Raspberry Pi Pico + Maker series' goodness + Robot controller & other useful features. Therefore this board is compatible with the existing Pico ecosystem. Software, firmware, libraries and resources that are developed for Pico should work seamlessly with Cytron Maker Pi RP2040 too. CircuitPython is preloaded on the Maker Pi RP2040 and it runs a simple demo program right out-of-the-box. Connect it to your computer via USB micro cable and turn it on, you will be greeted by a melody tune and LEDs running light. Press GP20 and GP21 push buttons to toggle the LEDs on/off, while controlling any DC and servo motors connected to it to move and stop. With this demo code, you get to test the board the moment you receive it! While connected to your computer, a new CIRCUITPY drive appears. Explore and edit the demo code (code.py & lib folder) with any code editor you like, save any changes to the drive and you shall see it in action in no time. That's why we embrace CircuitPython – it's very easy to get started. Wish to use other programming lauguages? Sure, you are free to use MicroPython and C/C++ for Pico/RP2040.

  • Cytron 25Amp 7-58 V High Voltage DC Motor Driver

    Cytron Cytron 25Amp 7-58 V High Voltage DC Motor Driver

    It is possible to control Cytron 25Amp 7-58 V High Voltage DC Motor Driver with PWM and DIR inputs. The input logic voltage ranges from 1.8 V to 30 V and the board is compatible with variety of host controllers (such as Arduino, Raspberry Pi, PLC). If you don't want to deal with programming to control the motor, there is an option to control the motor driver from a potentiometer (speed) and a switch (direction). You can also test the motor quickly and conveniently using the onboard test buttons and motor output LEDs without the need to hook up the host controller. It is possible to power the host controller with the buck regulator which produces 5 V output. This is especially useful for high voltage applications where no additional power source nor high voltage buck regulator is needed. This motor driver also incorporates various protection features. If the motor stalls or you've hooked up an oversized motor, the overcurrent protection will take care of the board and protect it from damage. If the motor is trying to draw current more than what the motor driver can support, the motor current will be limited at the maximum threshold. Assisted by temperature protection, the maximum current limiting threshold depends on the board temperature. The higher the board temperature, the lower the current limiting threshold. Note: Power input does not have reverse-voltage protection. Connecting the battery in reverse polarity will damage the motor driver instantaneously. Features Bidirectional control for one brushed DC motor Operating Voltage: DC 7 V to 58 V Maximum Motor Current: 25 A continuous, 60 A peak 5 V output for the host controller (250 mA max) Buttons for quick testing LEDs for motor output state Dual Input Mode: PWM/DIR or Potentiometer/Switch Input PWM/DIR Inputs compatible with 1.8 V, 3.3 V, 5 V, 12 V and 24 V logic (Arduino, Raspberry Pi, PLC, etc) PWM frequency up to 40 kHz (Output frequency is fixed at 16 kHz) Overcurrent protection with active current limiting Temperature protection Undervoltage shutdown Scope of delivery 1 × MD25HV (motor driver board) 1 × Potentiometer with connector 1 × Rocker switch with connector 4 × Nylon PCB Standoffs/Spacers Documents Datasheet Sample Code

Buy a Raspberry Pi

What is Raspberry Pi? Why do you need a Raspberry Pi board? What are the benefits?

Raspberry Pi is a minicomputer or a so-called Single Board Computer (or SBC for short) from the Raspberry Pi Foundation from Cambridge (GB). In a single-board computer, all important components such as the processor, RAM and GPU are mounted on one board.

The foundation published the first Raspberry Pi version in 2012 with the idea of promoting computer science as a school and study subject. The main goal to achieve this was a retail price of $35 that should be affordable for everyone.

Elektor also wanted to arouse early interest in computer science and electronics among pupils and students. As an official Raspberry Pi reseller, Elektor has direct personal contact with the Raspberry Pi developers in Cambridge and with the actual intellectual father of the Raspberry Pi, Eben Upton. Elektor not only offers official Raspberry Pi hardware, but also offers its customers interesting first-hand projects, reviews, tutorials and specialist books. Elektor thus occupies a special position among all Raspberry Pi dealers.

We also have an extensive range of RP2040 products based on the RP2040 microcontroller chip developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation.

Buying a Raspberry Pi board: what can you do with it?

What makes the Raspberry Pi so special? This small, full-fledged, credit card-sized computer has won the hearts of software and hardware developers around the world and continues to reinvent itself with each new hardware version. With more than 20 million boards sold, Raspberry Pi has turned the electronics world upside down. It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or a professional developer, Raspberry Pi is the universal tool for every electronics technician! Use the Raspberry Pi for your own developments, control your smart home products with it or use it as a media player in the living room for streaming. Raspberry Pi cuts a fine figure in every area. The application possibilities are almost endless. The steadily growing community develops fun, but above all useful projects that are easy to make yourself.

As an official Raspberry Pi reseller, Elektor not only offers the Raspberry Pi, but also the necessary accessories and extensions to benefit as much as possible from the compact Raspberry Pi. At Elektor you will find power supplies, housings (with or without fans), kits, sensors, robots, cameras, displays, books, HATs and other expansion cards to help realize your projects.

Smart Home projects with Raspberry Pi

Today, a Smart Home is one of the most used applications for the Raspberry Pi. The reason for this is logical because a Smart Home provides more comfort in the home and makes saving on energy costs easy. Below you will find three of the most commonly used applications of Raspberry Pi in a Smart Home environment

Home automation system

The Raspberry Pi can be used to build a home automation system that allows you to perform tasks automatically. This includes controlling lighting, heating, entertainment and air conditioning.

Home monitoring

Home monitoring is a system that uses sensors to take measurements of your home environment and transmit this information to a central device. The system can take measurements of: temperatures, humidity, light intensity and movement. Use home monitoring to monitor your home environment, allowing you to use alarm systems, security cameras and other devices to protect your home.

A good example of this is when you close your roller shutters automatically as soon as it threatens to get too hot. This way you can easily restore the heat in your home.

Smart switches

A smart switch is a device used to turn electrical appliances on and off remotely. It is a wireless device that is connected to your home network and can be controlled with a mobile app, a remote control or a voice assistant.

A good example of smart switches combined with Raspberry Pi is turning off lights when you watch a movie via Kodi. You can even go so far that when you pause the movie, the lights come back on.

Buy your Raspberry Pi from Elektor

Elektor is an official reseller approved by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. We only obtain the Raspberry Pi directly from the manufacturer/developer and not from a distributor. New products are immediately available from stock on the day of publication. By eliminating the middleman, we can offer the Raspberry Pi and other official accessories at the lowest possible price.
