GrovePi+ Up^2 baord and Relay?


#1

Hello,

I have an Up^2 board with the GrovePi+ and would like to connect a relay to control a fan.
Goal: Temp rises, fan turns on.

I have a Sainsmart 2 Relay Module and need to figure out how to connect it to the Grove board.
Any suggestions?

Hi @atrium.orchestrator,

I’d say you need to look at the GrovePi’s ports and see the pin mappings. Take a look at the following diagram:

You need to adapt the pins of your relay to the pins used on the GrovePi. And you’ll also need to use Grove connectors for this stuff.

This is like the big picture of it.
