Nowadays I’m using a wifi shield from other brand and it works great but it has a copuple of problems related temperature and voltage pin…
1- the 5V PIN does not carry power so you cannot add another shield on it
2- even using 5,2V to power the arduino board and the shield through VIN, the voltage regulator which is in the wifi shield and also the wifi chip gets a quite high temparature.
I want to put all the system inside a box so the high temperatore on it could be a problem…I want to have it 24h on so…
My question is if your shield have also a voltage regulator or if it use the 5V pin to run. Also if the wifi chip gets a high temperature after many hours on.
Sumarazing… I want to know if there is any component in this shield that could be damaged after 24h/365d on if I use a 5,2 power source in the VIN.
Thank you very much in advance
