Customer Reviews

PIFACE - PIFACE DIGITAL 2 - IO EXPANSION BOARD, RASPBERRY PI 4 5 8 8
Solid device, limited documentation The Piface Digital 2 worked for me out of the box. The documentation was limited: there's no specs for voltage limits on the input; the documentation specifies python 3 although python 2 is also supported; and there's no schematic. Otherwise I'm satisfied. May 7, 2015
Good value, bad switch I needed a configurable DIO controller for a measurement system and this saved time and $ vs. building a HW only version on a proto board. Value and setup were great. Only issue is that one switch (S0) is not functional (Dead on Arrival) although the input on the connector works. I only need 3 switches for this app and can add more if needed but nonetheless a quality issue. May 3, 2015
Pieface digital rev 2 Timely delivery and worked exactly as expected. Great product. The reason I gave 4 stars is that if you need to connect more that 1 of these to a pi, you need special cables or a pi rack. Simply using stackable headers would make it a 5 stars for me. March 17, 2015
OFF AND TO THE RACES Using this unit as a PT controller for a remote image gathering and so far it's the cats meow. February 18, 2015
WORKS AS ADVERTISED We purchased a Raspberry Pi B+ to control a test fixture in our assembly area. To increase the functionality of the fixture, we added a PiFace 2 so that we could control a 12 VDC motor with one of the relays. The PiFace was simple to install and set up, and worked great. The only (minor) issues were that the PiFace did not lock securely onto the Raspberry Pi, and that there was no case available for the Pi/PiFace combination. December 18, 2014

Answers

A: 
The box contains the board in an anti-static bag. That's all. To get the documentation and supporting libraries, you have to connect your RPi to the Internet.

(Alternatively you could download the packages and install them on your RPi manually, but most people connect their RPi to the Internet, and those are the instructions included in the Operating Manual).
