I ordered what looked to be a good option for moving my arduino boards off the bench top to prototype mode. I was thinking I would have to build some type of enclosure to house boards for my step from bench top to aquaponic control unit. Then this option surfaced.
I ordered it from this site:
Here are the specs on it:
- Dimensions: 3.6″ x 5″ x 1.35″
- Injection molded ABS plastic
- Enclosure is easy to machine, drill, cut and shape to what you need
- Brass screw inserts (can be used and reused many times, very durable!)
- Fits standard Arduinos and 16 x 2 LCDs
- Fits Arduino with Adafruit Protoshield on top with .45″ clearance
- Pop out plates for GPS, buttons, sensors, switches, knobs, etc!
- Holds up to 4 AAA batteries internally using 2xAAA holders. AA’s can squeeze in but the case wont close nicely so we suggest AAA’s
- Comes with screws for the LCD, Arduino and case
- Made in Canada!
NEXT STEP —-
Figure out how to interface the sensors I am building and using with this enclosure via cat5 cable. I have some good ideas though and more to come on how I can do it.
