The all new analog input interface for the Raspberry PI is here! The Pi-SPi-8KO has 2 SPDT relays and 6 relay signal outputs. Each signal output can drive a FET or transistor switch.
The design is based on the 74HC595 serial shift register, and has an LED indicator (Active) for each output.
Node-Red support is now available.
The GPIO expansion port is duplicated on either side of the module, so more modules can be added.
Port Pins Used:
SPI-MOSI (GPIO10) SPI-MISO (GPIO9) SPI-SCK (GPIO11)CS_8KO (GPIO8)
Please download the latest Widgetlords libwidgetlords library. The instructions can be found at
Getting Started with PI-SPI Libraries
All of the sample code examples are based on the latest library installation. Please note the code samples all use Python 3.
Basic Python "Write" Relay Output Program:
from time import sleepfrom widgetlords.pi_spi import *init()relays = Mod8KO()while True: relays.write(0x01) # Relay 1 ON sleep(1)
