A Raspberry Pi case or Raspberry Pi enclosure is designed to store and protect a Raspberry Pi development board and related components such as a Raspberry Pi camera. Raspberry Pi boards are a type of printed circuit board containing a microprocessor, a programming interface and a number of additional input and output components, usually push buttons and LEDs (light emitting diodes). Raspberry Pi development boards are available in several models, Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and Raspberry Pi Model B+.
Types of Raspberry Pi Cases
Raspberry Pi cases come in different sizes in order to hold and protect different versions of Raspberry Pi boards such as the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B case, Raspberry Pi 3 Model B case and Raspberry Pi Model B+ case. We also supply the Official Raspberry Pi enclosure. RPi cases are designed fit perfectly around your RPi and are usually moulded out of plastic in a range of colours with a number of impressions inside to accommodate the board’s component parts including PCB pillar supports to align and position the development board. Some RPi cases have a modular construction with removable covers, faceplates or side panels that snap-together for design flexibility. This modular construction allows more space for installing components and easy access to GPIO pins on the board. Raspberry Pi cases are available for DIN rail mounting for use in applications such as heating control, lighting control and energy metering.
Typical Features of Raspberry Pi Cases
•Suitable for use with Raspberry Pi 2, Raspberry Pi 3 and Raspberry Pi Model B+ development boards •Constructed from metal or robust plastic •Internal recesses for development board and components •PCB pillar supports to align and position the development board •Ventilation slots for dissipation of heat from the internal components •Enclosures with modular construction fro design flexibility and access to GPIO pin •Cut-outs for accommodating USB and Ethernet ports and connectors such as HDMI, micro USB and RCA audio-video jacks •LED apertures that allow status LEDs to be visible through the case •Lens aperture for a camera •Wall or DIN rail mounting features •Rubber feet
