DINPi - DIN Rail Mount for Raspberry Pi

DINPi Animated

Created for use with some of our home automation HATs, DINPi allows plug and play connection for Raspberry Pi add-on boards in a DIN rail mountable package. Multiple boards can be daisy-chained to create an array of connected HATs or pHATs. Simply solder whichever headers / sockets you require for your project.


Multiple Uses

DINPi Array on DIN Rail

DINPi can be used in a number of ways depending on your requirements. The "ribbon cable" style board design allows DINPi boards to be used in reverse or upside down without issue. The mirrored pinout (see below) allows multiple boards to be connected together using right-angle headers & sockets and can also be used to mount a Raspberry Pi upside-down while maintaining correct GPIO pinout.
