The box is for a Raspberry Pi with a NXP tinyK22 board and a battery backup (see “Building a Raspberry Pi UPS and Serial Login Console with tinyK22 (NXP K22FN512)“).
The box is made of 4 mm birch plywood, then painted with walnut stain.
The rubber feet on the bottom are more for practical usage, maybe I replace them with a plywood version:
All the USB and the network port are still usable from the outside:
Same for the USB Power connectors and the video port on the back side:
An opening on the bottom side gives access to the microSD card:
Turning the knob on the center of the front plate moves the gears and opens up the box:
The gears havea bit of a high friction so I have to be careful not to apply to much force. But I’m very happy how it works right now.
With the box open, it gives access to the two USB ports of the tinyK22:
The cover includes a sliding door to give access to the LCD and the navigation/joystick inside:
Happy enclosing 🙂
