Kitronik are proud to announce the release of our very first in-house Raspberry Pi HAT, the Kitronik Air Quality Control HAT for Raspberry Pi. With it, you can monitor, log, and react to the gathered sensory data. It is fully compliant with the HAT specification, just slot it onto the pins of the Raspberry Pi and you're ready to go!
We have been an official Raspberry Pi reseller since mid to late 2021 and ever since we've been adding Raspberry Pi products to our range at a steady rate. We now carry a selection of official Raspberry Pi lines along side HATs and Accessories from companies such as Pimoroni and Monk Makes. Although we have been producing add-ons and kits for Raspberry Pi Pico for quite some time, this is our first home grown HAT. We're excited and we hope that you are too!
Kitronik Air Quality Control HAT for Raspberry Pi
The board contains sensors to track temperature, pressure, humidity, air quality and ECO2. Additionally it provides a variety of sensor inputs and connection points for the Raspberry Pi and provides the ability to log, store and display data effectively with the Pi filesystem and an OLED screen. There are also connection points for external devices, such as analogue sensors, servos, motors, and heater pads that allow for additional monitoring and reading-based actions. In addition to the onboard screen, there is also an onboard buzzer and status ZIP LEDs that can all be used to brag your attention and inform.
Kitronik has created a package for the Air Quality Control HAT which is hosted on PyPi. This means that the package can be installed very simply on the Pi with the following command, copy and paste it into a terminal and hit enter:
The code, along with a README and example programs, can be found on the Kitronik GitHub repo.
At a glance:

- Add external devices, such as analogue sensors, servos, motors, and heater pads that allow for additional monitoring and reading-based actions.
- Conforms to Raspberry Pi standard for HATs.
- The HAT is powered via the Raspberry Pi GPIO connector.
- High-Power Output: GPIO13 & GPIO19 (1A current draw max).
- Servo Output Control, GPIO6 (Supply Voltage) and Piezo Buzzer Control, GPIO26.
- Analogue Inputs (RP2040 ADC): ADC0, ADC1 & ADC2 (Each with 3.3V & GND).
- ZIP LEDs: 3 onboard (controlled via RP2040)
- Additional Pin Breakouts: GPIO22, GPIO23, GPIO24 + 3.3V & GND.
- BME688 & OLED Display Control: I2C Bus (GPIO2 & GPIO3).
- README information and example programs are available on the Kitronik GitHub repo.
- This HAT is compatible with all Raspberry Pi versions that feature the 40-pin GPIO connector.
