I have a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B. The GPIO pins look exactly like this:

enter image description here

I bought the Energenie Raspberry Pi RF-Transmitter Board. The instructions (https://energenie4u.co.uk/res/pdfs/ENER314%20UM.pdf) show where the board should be plugged in a different model Raspberry Pi.

enter image description here

So there are several potential places I can connect the Energenie board. Does it go

  • All the way to the left?
  • All the way to the right?
  • Does it line up with that "GPIO" which seems to start at the fourth set of pins from the left?
  • Or somewhere else?

If someone could take that top image and draw a box around the correct pin placement in Paint or something that'd be amazing.

All the way to the left?

This one (pins 1-26 are common)
I found this fine picture: Pi pinout


all the way to the right (towards the SD card). The first 26 pins on the 26 pin and 40 pin Pi's are the same.

You may have a problem getting it to fit because of the extra pins. You have a couple of options in that case.

  • Thanks! It fitted perfectly without the others getting in the way, it just slotted in no problems at all. Initially I was confused but I think left/right is just a perspective thing. It's all the way down towards the SD card so your answer is the same as the other one (who said the left), sorry, should have been more clear in my question.

  • No problem I said right based on the pic (and added toward the SD card to be clear). Honestly I think the confusion came from the Pic in the other answer is flipped around to a different perspective. Mar 13, 2016 at 20:12
