Raspberry PI (pigpio)¶
|Related Config File Sections|
The rpi platform can be used to control inputs (switches), outputs (coils), I2C
and servos on the RPi remotely (or locally) using pigpio. You need to install
apigpio extension via pip to use it:
pip3 install apigpio
The pigpiod service needs to be running (in this example on localhost port 8888, which is the default setting). To install it and enable is (on debian based systems) :
apt install pigpiod systemctl enable pigpiod.service systemctl start pigpiod.service
The enable step gets the service running at startup, thus it is optionnal.
This is an example config:
hardware: platform: rpi raspberry_pi: ip: localhost port: 8888 switches: s_switch_1: number: 1 s_switch_7: number: 7 coils: output_23: number: 23 default_pulse_ms: 23 output_30: number: 30 default_hold_power: 1.0 output_2: number: 2 default_hold_power: 0.2 servos: servo_10: number: 10
Configure the ip of your RaspberryPi in the
You may use localhost if you are running MPF on the RPi.
Any pin on the RPi can be used as either input or output.
Additionally, you may use servos on any pin.
