Does anyone have a knowledge to where I can find metal boxes/enclosures for individual boards? I'm bolting all my hardware down, so I need metal. The flexing of my project might crack plastic. I'm aware of insulating everything. Trust me, even if I have to pour a non conductive epoxy into the box, it will be insulated.


I'm checking out digikey but not having any luck.


Best Regards

I missed adding the boards I need boxed are 1. CMB16D-QC and 2. ECG-M32MX/ECG-PIXAD8. Yes I know Ed sells boxes. I think he has enough to do than sell me a $6 box.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have gone to them multiple times for my project and they always look at me like I'm nutz and tell me to go online.

As far as I know, Ed (J1SYS) does not sell any enclosures apart from the ones that the bare DR4 PCB fits into.

The latest thing was the reversing contactor I wanted. They got lots of them, but not for 36 volts. He just ended the conversation with that.


Sheesh, lets talk about voltage and it's effects a bit. Maybe every time I go there they are having a bad day.


It could also be that I'm doing something out of the ordinary and he to is task saturated.


I'll get what I need if I keep plugging along

I'll find something but I thought maybe if I started a thread with the "Metal enclosure" tag, it might help others if there is good info out there somewhere
