Pi-UpTime UPShand-cropped-thumbnail
Pi-UpTimeUPS – provides uninterruptible power (or UPS) to the Pi for many hours. Pi-UpTimeUPS also allows power mobility. Compact and securely connected, allow you to take the Pi with you without having to shut-down and reboot it. Software monitors battery level and can shutdown the Pi when battery runs low.


Pi-UpTimeUPS-BO – combines the functions of Pi-16ADC and Pi-EzConnect in a breakout board that works with Pi-UpTimeUPS board, with all GPIO ports and twelve analog ports available for use. You also get 5V UPS and 3.3V UPS power for other devices.


Pi-16ADC – a sixteen (16) channel or a 16 port Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) board or HAT. Software, user manual and interface to rpimonitor is provided.


Pi-EzConnect – introduced in 2015, this board or HAT allows multiple digital sensors or GPIO to be securely connected to a Raspberry Pi.


Renewable Power
Alchemy Power Inc. Model XPS-1600 produces 1624 watts of power at 11 m/s wind speeds. Model XPS-1600 produces power when no other wind turbine can.  At 7 mph winds (appx 3.1 m/s wind speed) the XPS-1600 produces over 38 Watts of power – enough power to charge a 12-V battery in a given day.

Alchemy Power Inc. has a unit installed in Davis. All measurements were done on that unit. The measurement was over a period of four months.

Alchemy Power Inc. plans to use a Raspberry Pi (see Raspberry Pi foundation) to calculate and measure the XPS-1600 performance parameters such as wind speed, input voltage, output voltage etc. As part of the development effort, we created two products for the Raspberry Pi which we plan to use. We feel these products will be useful to the Raspberry Pi user community. Since making these products available, Alchemy Power Inc. has already sold a number of these products to satisfied users. See the product information and associated link to purchase these products.
