Power Fail Protection At Home DIY Electronics
Raspberry Pi UPS
Small and inexpensive microcomputers like the Raspberry Pi and Beaglebone are increasingly finding applications requiring unattended operation. You can now deploy an affordable solution to all kinds of monitoring and control applications using computers that fit in your pocket. But there is a catch. Computers need to be shutdown in an orderly fashion before power is removed to avoid corruption of the file system which can potentially render it useless. So what happens if there is a power outage or someone removes the power by mistake?
There are two ways to minimise the possibility that your raspberry Pi becomes as useful as a house brick. One way is to ensure that power is never denied to the computer should the mains power fail. Or you can detect a power fail condition and have the computer shut itself down until power returns. This series of articles looks at a variety of simple solutions to this problem. More...
