Sometimes it is useful to mount your Arduino project permanently in a control cabinet - for example in home automation or industrial applications. In such cases our ArduiBox enclosure for Arduino Nano, UNO and Yun Rev2 can help you to come to a rugged solution with professional look.
In this instructable we will show you how to use Arduibox with the different Arduino boards.
Step 1: Tools and Materials
- Arduino UNO, Nano or YUN Rev2
- ArduiBox Open kit
- optional shield
- soldering iron
- solder wire
- side cutting pliers
- needle nose pliers
- medium cross slot screwdriver
Step 2: PCB Assembly
In the first step you have to assemble the pcb on the ArduiBox kit. Please follow the attached construction manual. It is important to now which Arduino board is later used, because you can not assemble the pcb for Nano and UNO/Yun at the same time....
Step 3: Pcb Mounting
Now you can mount the pcb in the bottom shell of the enclosure
Step 4: Place the Arduino Board
You can plug now the Arduino board of your choice to the main pcb
Step 5: Optional Shield
It is possible to mount an additional shield onto the main pcb.
Step 6: Open Terminal Covers
Depending on the used terminals you have to remove the terminal covers of the top shell.
These covers comes with rated break points. You can remove it with a screw driver and a nose pliers
Step 7: Cabinet Mount
After mounting the top shell you be ready to mount the ArduiBox in a cabinet
