This module enables power to turn two USB devices on/off via a USB power switch (MOSFET). Power goes IN via the micro-USB side and OUT via the dual USB Type-A socket (power for both sockets is toggled on/off together).
The maximum current rating for the switch is 2.5A shared across both ports. The onboard chip used is a SiP32508/9
- Supplied with the PD (pull down) resistor set (Normally off).
- Connectors on top for GND / EN / 5V
- When the EN pin is connected to >2V (5V max) power to the device is turned on.
- Simple toggle/slide switch at the end of a (long) cable, connecting 5V to EN to turn on.
- Raspberry Pi/Arduino - Connect the GPIO pin to EN (and GND to GND) set the GPIO pin to output, and turn the pin on to enable power.
The USB Power Switch can be used to control power for many USB-powered devices such as Raspberry Pi Zero, Chromecasts, etc.
- Only for use with 5V supplies and devices - Using anything else may damage your power supply/charger/USB devices and the USB Power Switchboard
- USB data lines are connected at all times
- PCB colour may vary
- Raspberry Pi/USB Power Monitor/Cables not included.
