Here at Pi Supply, we have our roots in the open-source and educational values provided by the open source community. The Raspberry Pi is such a fantastic educational tool, and these kits open up even more possibilities for anyone to learn about electronics and programming.
We carry a large range of power supplies and power solutions which cater to any need that you might have in your maker adventures. Whether you just need a standard mains supply, to be able to make your projects portable, or something a bit more heavy duty, we've got you covered so you never get caught short.
Inside this part of the shop you can find all the bits and pieces you need for your prototyping needs. Here you can kit out your maker station with tools and consumables, as well as other components such as headers, sensors and accelerometers to bring all those epic ideas to life!
Here you can find the range of everyone's favourite single board computer! The revolutionary Raspberry Pi has brought more possibilities within the grasp of developers than ever before, and here you can get your hands on the board that will bring that next idea to life. The Raspberry Pi has come to us in many shapes and sizes, but whichever model you want or need, this platform is guaranteed to pack a punch!
Take a look at all the original products we have to offer here at Pi Supply! Whether you are looking for self-solder kits or fully assembled HATs, you can explore new horizons with Pi Supply, and do even more to unlock the potential of your Raspberry Pi. Check out our range for LED & IR toys, ePaper applications, power solutions and much more to expand your range of projects.
Please note! The AirPi has unfortunately been discontinued for the foreseeable future."Senses 99.9% of all known stuff" - Clive Beale, Raspberry Pi foundation The AirPi is a shield for the Raspberry Pi which can automatically provide information to the Raspberry Pi about temperature, humidity, air pressure, nitrogen dioxide levels, carbon monoxide levels, the current light levels and noise levels. Our open-source code then takes this information and automatically uploads it to a online database. The AirPi is sold as a kit, which means that in order to assemble it you will need basic soldering skills. All the parts are through hole, so is is easy for beginners to solder - the manufacturers say they have even had many people learn to solder using the AirPi kits! They also include full instructions on how to assemble the kit and setup the Raspberry Pi to work with it. The full contents of the kit are:
AirPi PCB, with the CO and NO2 sensors pre-soldered onto it
DHT22 temperature & humidity sensor
BMP085 air pressure sensor
Light sensor (LDR)
A microphone, to measure noise pollution
A rail-to-rail op-amp to amplify the signal from the microphone (MCP6283)
Analogue to digital converter (MCP3008)
One red and one green LED
A header for exposing the extra ADC inputs, for connecting your own sensors
A stacking header for the Raspberry Pi, so you can use this with another shield for the Pi
All the resistors and capacitors for the parts above
Monitoring the indoor environment Several people have used this kit to monitor the indoor environment of their house, for example, to know whether their dehumidifier was working, or whether their spouse had left the lights turned on.
Recording data about the air quality The sensors which the AirPi records, whilst poor indicators of absolute NO2 or CO levels, provide quite good relative readings, enabling you to determine for certain whether or not that huge new factory across the road actually made the air worse!
Anything at all! The code on the Raspberry Pi is fully open source (on GitHub), which means you can use the AirPi shield to do anything! You can add new sensors (3 of the extra ADC connections on the board are exposed for this and one person has connected up a geiger counter to his in order to measure radiation), or you can just use the sensors already included to trigger things (for example, turning on the heating when the lights are turned on).
(AirPi) - excellent product - not that difficult to build, just need to be careful when soldering, but I hadn't soldered since I was at school (now 40) and managed just fine - is great fun to play around with and get readings etc and show them via webpage or on Xively
(Pi-Supply) - great company, always respond quickly to any emails - products despatched quickly
