Do you really need to submerge the whole enclosure under the water? If you want to measure something, temperature for example, it is easier to submerge only temperature sensor. You can put the sensor in appropriate waterproof housing and connect it to the microcontroller or RPi which is in enclosure outside the water. You can use rubber rings on enclosure holes for cables. Also, put the enclosure below solar panel to prevent direct sunlight to enclosure since it get can pretty hot inside. See some examples on pictures. It is DIY electrical fence.partynoparty wrote:Thanks guys. Does anyone have any experience with waterproof housings for Raspberry Pi setups? I will have to run the cables from the solar panels into the enclosure, and will have to run the sensors out of the enclosure. Are there any enclosures that might be designed for this kind of setup, or would it be more of DIY kind of thing? Also, would the enclosure and the fact that the enclosure is submerged some distance (maybe a foot) below water affect the range of the wifi?
