This is a small board with a load switch that allows a Raspberry Pi to automatically temperature control a fan (not included) via GPIO3.

It's an affordable, compact and light way to add smart temperature control to your own Raspberry Pi enclosure or project, and can be used to toggle power for other devices using up to 1A as well.

We stock a horizontal and vertical version of this controller board - both have 2.54" pin spacing for the connected fan/device. Please see the images to determine the right version for your project (horizontal version coming soon!).

How to use

The Fan controller should be connected to the first 6 pins on the header where it uses 5V, GND and GPIO 3 (see images).

To automatically cool your Raspberry Pi when it starts to warm up, add the following to your /boot/config.txt and restart the Pi. You can change the value to make the fan turn on at different temperatures too:

dtoverlay=gpio-fan,gpiopin=3,temp=80000

Note: Raspberry Pi and Fan not included
