PacTec Enclosures

New Age Enclosures - They will usually send you free samples if you ask.

Teko Enclosures - Excellent quality, and very generous with samples. Fast, free shipping on all samples.

Stahlin Non-Metallic Enclosures - heavy-duty outdoor waterproof enclosures. PVC or fiberglass reinforced polyester. Some come with a completely transparent polycarbonate lid or a lid with a transparent polycarbonate viewing window.

Hammond Manufacturing - Versatile boxes, great service for adding custom machining to standard parts for moderate quantities. Transparent boxes make holes unnecessary for LED indicators, etc.

Envision Plastics & Design Uses NMR Technology (No Molds Required) to manufacture custom plastic enclosures for a variety of applications.

  • The Electrical Wholesaler: splashproof boxes for bathrooms and kitchens, and weatherproof boxes for outside use.[2]
  • ip67 enclosures. www.aliexpress.com/ip67-enclosure_price.html

BeagleBone enclosure

BeagleBone

  • Craig at Built-to-Spec put his design files for a BeagleBone enclosure on Thingiverse so anyone could make one from transparent acrylic with a laser cutter (or whatever color you want).[3][4][5][6]
  • Mike Doell designed a transparent plastic enclosure for Adafruit to hold a BeagleBone Black[7]
  • Pazdan makes enclosures milled out of solid aluminum for Adafruit to hold a BeagleBone Black[8]
  • Logic Supply designed an enclosure for the Beaglebone -- steel with orange[9] or textured black paint.[10]

Raspberry Pi enclosure

Raspberry Pi (Motherboards that run Linux#Raspberry Pi)

  • Pi Plate Clip: an accessory that makes the Adafruit's Raspberry Pi Plate a little stronger.
  • Pi-Top and pi-topCEED hold the Raspberry Pi and a LCD panel in an approximation of a laptop or desktop computer.[11] [12]

According to a "Raspberry Pi Zero, Pi 2, B+, A+, Compute Module Dev Kit Comparison Chart", the PCBs themselves are:

  • 85 mm x 56 mm : Raspberry Pi 2 Model B and B+
  • 65 mm x 56 mm : Raspberry Pi 1 Model A+
  • 65 mm x 30 mm : Raspberry Pi Compute Module
  • 65 mm x 30 mm : Raspberry Pi Zero


Arduino enclosure

Arduino Links

  • Dr. Patrick Hickey. "Space Station modular enclosures for Arduino & Raspberry Pi".[13]
  • "Clear Enclosure for Arduino"[14]
  • "Arduino Project Enclosure"[15]
  • "Dirt Cheap Arduino Enclosure"[16]

working with foamcore

Edge of Space Sciences (EOSS) needs lightweight, well-insulated, and reasonably strong enclosures to (a) insulate the electronics package during transit through the cold ( -50 °F ) tropopause on its way to the stratosphere, and the more difficult job of (b) keep the recovery beacon operational after crash-landing on Earth.

The foamcore seemed to work best after EOSS flight tests with molded Styrofoam packaging material, built-up insulation-grade Styrofoam sheet, bulk closed-cell polyethylene foam, and foamcore sheet.

Mike Manes, W5VSI (and Doug Gentges ?) has written some tips on building EOSS enclosures out of foamcore and hot glue and a bit of Kapton tape: "Foamcore Payload Construction"; "Package Requirements"; "Foamcore Flight Experience"; "Foamcore Adhesives"; "Making Holes"; "Planning the Package".

working with acrylic

"DIY Acrylic Refugium" describes how to make an acrylic enclosure.

  • "How to Cut Acrylic (Plexiglass)" [17]
  • "HOW TO: Hand Cut Acrylic" [18]
  • "Best way to Cut Acrylic?" [19]
  • "Working with Acrylic" (cutting, drilling holes, metal inserts, adhesives, etc.)[20]
