    Hi,

    I am almost finished with the theoretic part.
    So I have the Raspberry Pi 2 and want to use it in my Arcade-Box.
    I’ve have a rocker switch, for turn the system an/off.
    But I want have a controlled shot-down, so the danger is low to damage something in the software, maybe when writing on the card or something else.
    I have the i-Pac to connect all the buttons.
    Can I also connect there a power-switch?

    And if not, can I use with the RP2 and ControlBlock and can I add there the rocker-switch?

    The ControlBlock provides both functionalities: a power switch interface for your rocker-switch as well as terminal blocks for arcade controllers. After the setup the RPi listens to the ControlBlock and gets the commands to shut-down safely.
