Raspberry Pi now has metallic blue ABS plastic enclosure

Paul Boughton

US enclosure manufacturer Polycase has launched an affordable ABS plastic enclosure for the credit-card sized Raspberry Pi computer with pricing as low as $9.53 per unit with no minimum order requirement.

Moulded in metallic blue flame-retardant ABS plastic, this enclosure colour brings a unique new option to the market.

The compact enclosure measures 3.0 x 4.0 x 1.4 inches. Designed to fit the Raspberry Pi Model B, the Pi Series holds the PCB captive with access and labeling for each individual component of the board.  

Included with the enclosure are five flush mounted light pipes that project light from the board's LEDs out of the end panel on the case. The textured finish on the cases is resistant to fingerprints and scratching.

To aid in the development of projects and applications, Polycase provides 2D drawings and a 3D model of the Raspberry Pi plastic enclosure for instant download directly from their website.  

Polycase also offers CNC machining and custom printing on all enclosures. Polycase has been providing packaging solutions to the electronics industry since 1951 and offers over 2100 variations of enclosures from simple potting boxes to heavy-duty industrial electronic enclosures.
