Available in two versions, the Pi-Safe offers a secure way to power down your device without any risk to your data.
When mains power is suddenly disconnected from a computer by a power cut for example, there is a very high possibility of data corruption. The Pi-Safe provides power from a rechargeable battery which allows time for a correct pre programmed shutdown to occur. The Pi-Safe also recharges the battery when in use and the shutdown time and GPIO pin can be selected by the user. No programming of the Pi-Safe is necessary to allow any shutdown requirements to be performed. We are interested in licencing the technology so get in touch if you require these functions in you own design. A video of the device in action is available here
A datasheet for the Pi-Safe specs are available in the Downloads Section of this site.
