Hi all,

I’m using a raspberry pi with the victron OS to monitor our Adria MH and I’d like to set it up so it’s powered permanently, regardless of whether we’re on EHU, off grid or driving. If any of you are doing the same thing, can you tell me how you’re powering the raspberry pi? Many thanks.

Thanks Diabalo - I read through it, but no body really talks about how they permanently power their Pi, though they do cover loads of other useful stuff.

@bobyy-gg - Is this something I can plug directly into the EBL220, or did you splice it into some other wires or direct to the battery?

As stated, from my fuse board

This is the stabilised power supply that I'm using to power my Pi on our van wired to our leisure battery
12v in with an adjustable output and a led readout and the output is rock solid even with variations in your leisure battery voltage.
Wired the output to a female USB breakout board, and then just used a standard USB cable to my Pi.
Just popped mine in a cheap 85mm x 85mm plastic junction box to tidy it up.

hornsofallign sorry I thought it was in the thread.

I fitted one off these as it had usb sockets that I needed. I powerd my wifi at the same time so could logon remotely tpo see what was going on, the trouble for me was that in the darkest depth of winter the solar panels struggled to keep up eith the draw.

Nice little bit of kit, looks better than my cobbled together effort, but in my defence, I used what was available at the time. (y)

You may want to consider a UPS in your power solution
