Explorer HAT Pro adds a lot of useful tools to your Raspberry Pi.

It has digital inputs and outputs, capacitive touch pads, croc. clip compatible pads, coloured LEDs, analog inputs, motor drivers, and a mini breadboard for prototyping your projects

Great for little robots, games, science experiments, exploring small electronic circuits, and interacting with you Pi.

We've put together a handy little Explorer HAT Pro parts kit with everything you need to get started building circuits including LEDs, dials, a buzzer, and even a temperature sensor! Explorer HAT Pro also goes great with our no-soldering-required micro metal gearmotors and our STS-Pi robot kit.


  • Four buffered 5V tolerant inputs (perfect for Arduino compatibility)

  • Four powered 5V outputs (up to 500mA total across all four channels)

  • Four capacitive touch pads (labelled 1, 2, 3, 4)

  • Four capacitive crocodile clip pads (labelled 5, 6, 7, 8)

  • Four coloured LEDs (red, green, blue, and yellow)

  • Four analog inputs

  • Two H-bridge motor drivers (up to 200mA per channel; soft PWM control)

  • A heap of useful (unprotected) 3v3 goodies from the GPIO

  • A mini breadboard on top!

  • Explorer HAT Pro pinout

  • Compatible with Raspberry Pi 3, 2, B+, A+, Zero, and Zero W

  • Python library

  • Comes fully assembled


We've made it super-quick to get to grips with Explorer HAT Pro with our Python library, including a bunch of examples to show off all of Explorer HAT Pro's functions.

Our software does not support Raspbian Wheezy.


  • The inputs use a 5-channel buffer that will accept anything from 2V-5V as logic high

  • Mini breadboard had 170 points, 17x5 per half of the breadboard
