Product Description

AvalonMiner Modded Raspberry Pi Controller

This AvalonMiner Controller kit is a modded Raspberry Pi 3 Model B). The AUC2 converter connects the Avalon6 miner to the Raspberry Pi. However, it can be quite difficult to find AUC2 converters on the market. Consequently, we have created a modded Raspberry Pi kit that completely bypasses the need for the AUC2 controller.

The controller will come with an SD card with the latest firmware installed. You can start mining right after plugging in an ethernet cable and adjusting your network settings.

Your mining setup will operate reliably because of the large memory capacity of the controller. By default, there is a “No-WIFI mode” preset, which is the default requirement for large-scale mining deployments. Each Raspberry Pi can control up to 20 Avalon6 miners.

AUC2 Versus This Modded Kit

AUC2 is short for AvalonMiner USB Converter #2. A normal AUC2 can only connect 6 Avalon6 miners to a Raspberry Pi. However, when we tested this modified kit we successfully linked 12 miners together. Furthermore, other customers have had success linking up to 20 miners with a single modded controller.

Canaan is sold out of AUC2 converters, with no restock in sight as they have seemingly discontinued them. Because of that AUC2 shortage, resellers were trying to sell AUC2s for a few hundred dollars each!

I recently purchased a A6 Canaan Controller w/ AUC2 Bypass from you. The RPi runs, but my network is not detecting the RPi or my Avalon6 miner. My Avalon6 miner is on with a solid blue light and the fans are running. Are you sure you included the latest firmware on the SD card? The last Canaan controller I bought was identified instantly on my home network.

If the A6 is showing a solid blue light, your miner is connected to the network and hashing. Canaan by default set the PI with a static address at We found this to be a problem for most user and set the PI to DHCP. The PI will pull an address from your router. You need to access your router and check the DHCP lease IP’s .. Try each one or try the one without a host name.

I assigned an IP address to the RPi and was able to login to the OpenWrt firmware. However, the fans have stopped and the miners have flashing green lights. Do you have any troubleshooting documentation for this controller? Also, do you know which company created this controller?

I just received the A6 Canaan Controller w/ AUC2 Bypass. It comes with a white cable. What is that cable for? It looks like I’m missing something when I purchased the Avalon 6. (used). Are there any instructions on how to set this up? I cannot find any with the A6 Canaan Controller w/ AUC2 Bypass. Please let me know. Thanks!

It’s a USB cable to power the controller. You need to have it powered and a network cable plugged in to be able to connect to it. Plug the micro side into the controller and the other side into a USB wall charger, laptop, or PC. Should use DHCP by default, so run something like Angry IP scanner to find the IP that gets assigned to it and then type that IP in your browser to access OpenWrt to assign a static if wanted and change the CGI miner pool settings. I think some of these may have bad firmware or memory cards, so if the miner stays in idle status, try a different card with the latest firmware.

I’m able to access the controller. However, the Avalon 6 miner has a blinking red light. The fan is working, but only for 8 – 10 minutes. It stops for a couple of seconds and then starts again. The unit is not hashing at all. I’m not sure whether it is the firmware in the RPi I received (Avalon Firmware – 20160726) or hardware related. I purchased the Avalon in eBay like 2 months ago and have been troubleshooting with my limited knowledge to no avail. The seller is now ignoring my messages. Any help will be immensely appreciated. Thanks!

I just got the Controller in and have it working with 1 Avalon6 miner. I tried to get two working by chaining them together and it is not detecting the second Avalon. Any ideas?

i have just received the controller with the AUC2 bypass. I am able to login but wont detect the miner. The miner is a Avalon 6 and the LED flashes green.
Any ideas?

Sorry i have to ask the NEWBIE possibilities

1- Have you connected the 4pin cable from the controller to the A6 ? The left plug ?
2- Have you access the controller via webbase and enter your POOL and worker information ?
3- Have you power the controller using a micro USB ? 5v just like any cell phone charger
4- Have you connected the controller to your network ?

Any on and on ….

No worries!

Yes, i did connect the 4pin cable on the left port of the miner.
Yes, I can access the controller with my browser and I did enter the pool and worker information.
Yes, i did power the controller using the micro USB wire connected to a phone charger.
Yes, the controller is connected to my network and i can access it with ant of my PCs on my network.

When i go on the cgminer page, I can see my pool info with the mention “alive” next to each of them.
But under devices, there is nothing there.
My miner powers up, the fan comes on fast and then slows down and the LED goes from green to flashing yellow.

Could it be the firmware?

I appreciate your help Joseph!

Hello Samster,

There is a line that needs to be added to the miner configuration page of the Raspberry Pi controller for the Avalon6 that allows the bypass of the AUC2. It could be possible that you deleted this line when inputting your pool /worker information. I will email you with the modification that needs to be done within the miner configuration page. Please check your email for further instructions.

Would it be possible to get a reply soon?!?
Takes on average 3-4 days to get a reply….It’s the same speed as mailing a letter!
I’ve been dealing with a non functioning controller for over 2 weeks and I’m getting really upset.
I could have bought a paperweight for far less than what your controller costed.

My controller didn’t initially work. I had the endless blinking yellow LED and the device status empty. I updated the firmware and the MM Tools, still nothing. I tried again with the firmware but this time I UN-checked the ‘Keep Settings’ check box unlike I did the first time. Everything was set back to the defaults but the light was still blinking yellow. Once I added –avalon4-icc-detect to the options and applied, the device status filled in and the blinking yellow light turned blue. Of course I changed the default pool info to my own after that. I hope this helps someone!
