Fan HAT

Introduction

This is a PWM controlled Fan HAT, which is designed for Raspberry Pi, I2C Bus, PCA9685 driver, it can be used as a temperature monitor as well.

Features

  • PCA9685 PWM driver as the fan controller, powerful driving capability, auto PWM adjustment
  • 0.91" OLED, 128x32 pixels, displays board temperature or other user-defined content in real-time
  • Adopts 3007 size PWM controlled fan, up to 8000rpm speed, brings strong airflow
  • Supports retrieving temperature data in real-time, and then adjusting the speed automatically, programmable configuration
  • I2C pins, for connecting other host control boards
  • 16-ch PWM outputs, for driving other external PWM devices
  • Comes with heat sinks, better cooling effect

Example

Hardware connection

First at all, please connect the Fan HAT to Raspberry Pi by attaching it on the 40PIN GPIO
The standoffs and screws can be sued to hold the Fan HAT in another side.

Libraries installation

Open the terminal of Raspberry Pi and install libraries as guides below
