Raspberry Pi enclosure

by Published in Dataweek June 04, 2014

Hammond Electronics has developed a new moulded enclosure specifically designed to house the Raspberry Pi Model B credit card sized computer. The 1593HAM is available in translucent blue, grey and black, and features a stylish rounded design with apertures for all the I/O interfaces and supported accessories.

There are no fixings; the Raspberry Pi board clips into the base and, in turn, the top half of the enclosure then clips into the base. A catch secures the assembly and allows the case to be easily opened if required. Two captive slots are moulded into the base to enable the enclosure to be attached to a surface; for standalone applications, small feet are also supplied.

All I/O capability is directly accessible without having to modify the enclosure. The camera module can be fitted through a slot in the top, or it can be screwed to the inside of the top cover with a hole provided for the lens. A cut-out in the split line between the two halves of the case provides access to the GPIO header.

Two USB ports, the RJ45 LAN port, the SD carrier, the audio and video RCA ports, the micro USB power-in connector and an HDMI interface are all accessible through apertures of the correct size and shape in the sides of the enclosure.
