Raspberry Pi POE HAT

Post by johniot »

Hi,

I was wondering if it would be possible to add support for the Raspberry Pi POE HAT?

Particularly the control of the fan.

The use of the POE HAT causes the board to get considerably warm. 65C+ (degrees celsius).

Under the latest Raspbian, the fan is controlled to come on at 45C, speed up at 50C and be at full speed above 55C.

Thank you,
John

Raspberry is too quiet? Pay $25 to add some noise. Nice idea. I ordered one piece for experiments. Will be supported when it will arrive.

Please try 6.0.4 wtware version.

It starts fan at 40`

Here is the manual:

https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/bl ... ays/README

To add a little silence specify in config.txt file on boot SD:

Code: Select all

dtoverlay=rpi-poe,poe_fan_temp0=50000,poe_fan_temp1=55000,poe_fan_temp2=60000,poe_fan_temp=65000

Would it be possible to add the configuration to the GUI, i.e. a tick box / boolean parameter for POE Hat to silence the fan?
If I put it in the default config, I have to change it with every WTWARE update which is not convenient...
