The Power + Fan HAT for the Raspberry Pi is a combination of two of BCRobotic's most popular Raspberry Pi add-ons.
This board is based on the same beefy 3A 5V DC/DC converter found on our Power and Power RTC HAT and features the same 40mm fan used on our Fan HAT. Combined, this will comfortably power your Pi from 7-16V while keeping it cool under heavy load.
The power supply is fused and reverse polarity protected and provides power to the Pi by way of the GPIO header. The Fan runs as long as power is available. Simply connect your DC supply to the screw terminals and this board will keep your Pi3 / 3+ / 4 happy running under heavy load all day long! We recommend keeping the input voltage to 7-16VDC to prevent the regulator from getting too warm.
Finally, we have also added an optional 2 pin footprint on the board for a 2.54mm / 0.100” connector for use as a soft shutdown/restart. With
dtoverlay=gpio-shutdown enabled in your /boot/config.txt file, connecting these two pins will trigger the Pi to perform a shutdown. Press the button again, and the Pi will boot right up. We recommend using a momentary pushbutton for this feature. At this time, the Pi 4 is only capable of shutdown and will not restart without modifying the bootloader.
This version of the board is fully assembled and requires no soldering.
