OpenSprinkler Pi (OSPi)

$139.00$163.00

OpenSprinkler Pi is an extension board for Raspberry Pi (RPi) (RPi 0; RPi 1 Model A+/B+; RPi 2; RPi 3). It allows RPi to directly access and control sprinkler valves. It comes with a set of laser cut acrylic enclosure.

NOTE:
– Includes laser cut acrylic enclosure (as shown in the picture).
– RPi is NOT included, no LCD; 24VAC transformer is NOT included by default.
– Due to the power consumption of RPi 3, if you plan to use RPi 3, you may need an additional USB adapter to power RPi 3 directly through its microUSB port.
– This version WILL NOT fit RPi 1 Model A or B.

Description

OpenSprinkler Pi (OSPi) is an extension board for Raspberry Pi (RPi 0; RPi 1 Model A+/B+; RPi 2; RPi 3). It allows RPi to directly access and control sprinkler valves. It comes with a set of laser cut acrylic enclosure.

Note: This version WILL NOT fit RPi 1 Model A or B. Also, if you plan to use RPi 3: due to the power consumption of RPi 3, you may need an additional USB adapter to power RPi 3 directly through its microUSB port.

Overview:

The idea of OSPi was first realized after many users were setting up RPi to work with OpenSprinkler. There are good reasons to do so, for example, to enable logging, to customize the default Javascript files, and to allow more advanced features learning-based control. OSPi is designed as an extension board that makes use of RPi’s GPIO pins to directly control sprinkler valves, without an additional layer of microcontorller and Ethernet controller. In other words, it is a circuit board that allows an RPi to directly interface with sprinkler valves.

Features:

  • Single power supply design — the same 24V AC sprinkler transformer powers both sprinkler valves and RPi.
  • Built-in real-time clock (RTC), A/D D/A converter (4 input and 1 output channels), rain/flow sensor terminal, zone expansion board connector, and transient voltage protectors.
  • Expandable — one OSPi supports 8 zones; expandable to 56 with OpenSprinkler zone expansion boards.
  • Control from anywhere — use any modern browser, or use our free apps for iOS, OSX, Android, Kindle Fire, Windows 8, Chrome, and Firefox.
  • Automatic weather-based water time adjustments — use online weather data to auto-adjust water times based on temperature, humidity and rainfall.
  • Open-source and customizable.

Package Includes:

  • One assembled and tested OpenSprinkler Pi board.
  • Laser cut acrylic enclosure and screw terminal blocks.

Package DOES NOT Include:

  • Raspberry Pi
  • microSD card
  • 24VAC Transformer (optional add-on)
  • If you have an existing sprinkler controller, you can reuse the transformer.
