trackback

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:

http://www.adafruit.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=17&products_id=271

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.
