I have a problem with all the (standard/low-price/plastic) cases I saw until know:
The SD Card (not micro) is removable and partially stay outside the case.
That's bad for me. I explain my application/hardware requirements:
I'm developing an e-commerce solution to delivery e-orders to producers/sellers;
where orders will be printed on paper by a raspberry
So, I have to supply a raspberry to final users/customers and they are:
workers (in factory-like environments), cook's assistant (in kitchen environments), etc.
anyway I would like that USERS could NOT ACCESS the card for many (obvious) reasons.
1. MAIN REQUIREMENT: SD CARD INSIDE THE CASE
the main requirement is that SD CARD must be not accessible by users
and possibly it stay completely hidden inside the case.
Ok, A possible workaround could be to use a microSD card with an adapter
I just used standard size SD cards until now and I suspect to have these problems with MICRO SD cards:
- more expensive solution (probably microSD card + adapter cost MORE than a standard size SD card with same "class")
- The adpater I saw, let access microSD, sticking out some millimeters, instead, I would like that any SD card
(standard size or micro) could NOT BE ACCESSIBLE/touched by users.
2. SECONDARY REQUIREMENTS: SHOCK ABSORBING CASE / WATER RESISTANT
Just because the raspberry will be positioned in a "difficult" working environments...
an interesting feature could be a case that let survive raspberry from possible blows/falls
Especially for kitchen envs could be attractive a case that minimize damages coming from liquid splashes, etc.
In that sense, the best could be a case that expose only three plugs: power + usbs + ethernet
Last but not least, I have to keep case costs LOW
(I saw somewhere interesting projects of alluminium/waterproof custom-made cases... too expensive for my possible distribution of device to small retailers...)
Any idea ?
At first it could be great to just find an already made plastic / low-cost case that simply take Sd card inside.
but I'm interesting to keep in touch with possible producers of custom-made cases! In this last scenario please contact me at email@example.com
