Power supply connector and voltage tolerance

Postby Johan » Thu Aug 11, 2016 12:26 pm

What is the name/code for the power connector used to connect power to the UniPi? We are using GND/5V cables and need to screw on connectors for the UniPi. Can you recommend a product/reseller of such plugs?

Is the UniPi doing any regulation of the power supply? What is the voltage tolerances for reliably powering the UniPi/Raspberry?

Hello, there is no power supply on the UniPi 1.1 so you need to provide a stable 5V ( I think most of the parts are 4.5V to 5.5V, but cannot guarantee).

We are using this connector http://www.tme.eu/en/details/pc-gk2.1/d ... onnectors/ so search for a propriate male connector in your local shop with electronics. It is the most common connector....
