Die PiBoxTouch




The PiBoxTouch was developed by the wish to build a smaller housing, suitable for the desktop or a small audiosystem.
The same RaspberryPi touchscreen is used as in the large cases, but without the keyboard-module and without a inner mounting base. The sides are made of black anodised aluminum profiles, the back is made of a black anodised aluminum plate, the base and cover of black coated steelplates.

Exterior dimensions:

Height 130mm (without feets)

I.) Recommendations for assembly
Solder the resistor in series with the LED, insulate all cables and then insert the LED from the rear into the opening.
This has a diameter of 3.2mm.
I have fixed the LED with hot glue, which holds very well and is, if necessary, removable.
The coverplate of the chamber for the infrared receiver I fixed with adhesive for acrylic glass. It is transparent and does not attack the plastic.
