Uncommitted connection to GPIO pins for external use. Powering down, starting show, changing sequence etc.
Mounting holes to suit Pi 2, Pi 3 and Pi Zero
Real Time Clock (RTC) for show scheduling
Supplied with M2.5 Nylon spacers to separate the Pi and rPi-28D
3 fused power inputs for the 3 pixel outputs. 5V , 12V and/or 24V pixels can be connected

Note: Raspberry Pi & micro SD card are not supplied. Included in photos to show the application.
A Class 10 SD/Micro SD card is recommended and 16-32 GB is the recommended size range.
The rPi-28D+ requires a Raspberry Pi (2, 3, 4 or Zero) running Falcon Player and configured with channels, sequences and channel output settings must be configured.
Note: This hat will not require a licence for use with FPPv6
UNLESS.. You configure for 4 WS2811 ports instead (requires FPP6). See the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcj4Uqi9A9c
