Product Overview

PiRack is an expansion board allowing the connection of multiple IO boards to the Raspberry Pi. With the ability to connect up to 4 additional boards, the plug in PiRack allows users ultimate flexibility in their Raspberry Pi programming. Powered separately to the Raspberry Pi means that the PiRack will not affect performance. This carrier card is part of the PiFace series and can be used with most IO expansion boards that are compatible with the Raspberry Pi IO header. PiRack also enables the Pi Camera Module to be used at the same time. By taking IO expansion boards directly off the Raspberry Pi, PiRack enables the camera module to easily connect onto the Raspberry Pi using to the top mount CSI interface.
  • Connect up to 4 accessory boards to the Raspberry Pi
  • 5V barrel jack for additional power (5.5mm OD  2.1mm ID Barrel)
  • Jumpers to select between internal and external power
  • Daisy chain multiple PiRacks for even more expansion

PIFACE - PIRACK - CIRCUIT RACK, FOR RASPBERRY PI 5 5 2 2
PiRack Accessory board for Raspberry Pi - Review All in all, the Pirack is a great idea with a few improvements that could be made. I really like the way it works with my cluster, sharing the expansion boards with the power of 3 Rpi’s. As a side note, the cluster is easily expandable to as many slave Rpi’s as I want. I tested the Piracks with different expansion boards and it worked very well, I won’t run my cluster without them. I give the Pirack a high mark and would recommend it to anyone and everyone.

PiRack Accessory board for Raspberry Pi - Review I control some of my home appliances with Raspberry Pi. The PiFace is a great product to play with, but it's limitations are strict. So the two relays I need to control anything with. Now I can turn on and off my printer remotely, not only lamps and coffee machine. Thanks!
