AvalonMiner Modded Raspberry Pi Controller
This AvalonMiner Controller kit is a modded Raspberry Pi B+ (model 3). The AUC2 converter connects the Avalon6 miner to the Raspberry Pi. However, it can be quite difficult to find AUC2 controllers on the market. Consequently, we have created a modded Raspberry Pi kit that 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. When we tested this modified kit we successfully linked 12 miners together; other customers have had success linking up to 20 miners.
Canaan has been sold out of AUC2 controllers for months with no restock in sight. Because of that shortage resellers were trying to sell AUC2s for a few hundred dollars each.
