About Power Module¶
The Power Module allows you to connect a 5 V DC power adapter via a standard 2.1 mm power jack socket. It features a high-current relay (230 V AC / 16 A) to control your appliances. Also you can drive a digital LED strip with it (compatible with WS2812B).
This module can power a HARDWARIO TOWER - Industrial IoT Kit node thanks to its integrated LDO regulator. The LDO generates 3.3 V output from the 5 V input.
Reliability is important - that’s why we have implemented a smart overvoltage, undervoltage and reverse polarity protection on the power jack input. This feature guarantees the input voltage range to always stay within the proper limits.
The maximum allowed current is 6 A.
