Perfect Particle IOT waterproof project box


#21

Can you still transmit and receive bluetooth/cellular/wifi signal when the board is in this housing?


#22

yes, you can use the wireless with almost no degradation. The housing is fiber reinforced plastic.


#23

I purchased one of these for a project. Do you also have a .brd layout you could share?


#24

I just drew a version with grove connectors. Anyone interested?


#25


#26

I’m gonna guess a boat wintering in-water at a marina with a heater powered by the AC dock supply?

How are you powering this unit?


#27

cell phone AC-USB power supply, wired into the waterproof connector. When external power is lost it stays powered from the internal lithium cell and sends notification through ifttt to my phone.


#28

Appreciate some additional clarity. You have a Boron, antenna, battery, and BME 280 within the enclosure? Stock Particle antenna? Is the AC power supply marine grade? Thanks


#29

I use an electron, battery and BME280 in the enclosure currently.

A boron fits too as it is smaller. and is a direct fit to the feather wing pcb.
I recommend a prismatic lipo for power backup.

The cellular antenna can fit inside if bent into an L or U. No sharp bends, just push in the case.


#30

I use an apple phone charger. It works well though not marine grade. If it goes bad I also get a signal.

Good luck, too spendy for me however. And no IP rating…

This is awesome! Thanks for sharing. I am needing an enclosure exactly like this with room to mount a solar panel. Generally speaking, a flat surface or depressed surface on this enclosure that would fit a small solar panel. Do you have anything that might fit?


#39

A .25ish watt panel should fit.

Are you getting these printed yourself? Amazon says they are unavailable…

You also have a picture of a Boron LTE…are you mounting the antenna on the inside?
