Power lead / RS232c - DIN Project
#1
Hi,

this is my first post :-)

I have a project where I will be mounting the Pine64-LTS board in a DIN enclosure. So far I have ordered a few samples from Italtronic: https://eng.italtronic.com/products/modu...ox_xts_en/

Currently I have worked out the standoffs needed, power/reset buttons, and connector couplers for HDMI/RJ45 connections.

What I need to figure out now is a TTL to RS232c adapter that will work.

At present my thought is to use this: https://www.waveshare.com/product/module...m?___SID=U

and attach it to to the main TTL output for serial console access similar to many types of network equipment.

Does any one have any experience with this, as in will work or are there alternatives that would be better?

My current idea is to attach them using single jumper leads, however, I would need to distribute the +5v power supply to the DB9 serial board additionally.




Also I would like to find out what the best way to power the Pine board would be? My current idea is to use a Type H power barrel to bare wire connector but there aren't any available in the Pine store. I have had a look at the barrels individually and am a little confused as to which internal diameter would be needed? For 3.40mm OD I have found connectors with 1.34mm and 1.35mm ID.


Last question quickly, has anyone used the CrystalFontz line of LCD/OLED displays with the Pine64? The reason I mention this is that I would like to use one coupled to LCDProc and since CF displays work really well with it, it would be a great idea to mount one on the front panel of the enclosure.


Many thanks for any suggestions, ideas, recommendations :-)

Not knowing anyone try out CrystalFontz and impressive on their LCD/OLED display lineup. If you have make it works, please share your expereince. If they have interest to collaborate with PINE64, this can be a good match.
