    • PiFace Digital 2 for Raspberry Pi


    PiFace Digital 2 add-on board for Raspberry Pi that allows for connecting things that will influence the world around it. PiFace Digital 2 includes components like relays, switches, digital and analog I/O that will allow for connection to sensors, motors, lights, etc. and be controlled by the Raspberry Pi board.

    The original PiFace Digital interface board fits the original Raspberry Pi models A and B. PiFace Digital 2 has been redesigned to fit the Raspberry Pi models A and B.

    PiFace™ Digital 2 sits neatly above the Raspberry Pi® and connects using the expansion connector. Take care to ensure all expansion pins are lined up with the holes on the PiFace™ Digital 2 socket. Check the alignment for left and right, and front and back before pushing down and never force the boards together if they don’t slide smoothly.

    Warning: Ensure that no power is supplied to Raspberry Pi®, or PiFace Digital 2 boards when plugging or unplugging.

    Key Applications: Education, Home/Industrial automation, Security Monitoring, Internet of Things gateway, Remote monitoring, I/O expander, User interface for systems, Hobbyist projects and games.
