Hello everyone.

I am interested in the RPI adjustment to industrial development. I'm looking for solutions for DIN rail mounting with class IP66 or IP65.

Can anyone encountered any solution for RPi ?

Hi,

you can go to http://www.conrad.com and search for "DIN rail case" and you should find some nice solutions.

as the RPI *yet* does not have any mounting holes it will be a bit challenging to keep in so YMMV

If you just want the pi inside a box without any connections to the outside, things are easy. But that's probably not what you want.

Which connectors do you wish to use, how are you going to power it? Have you thought about that?

The conntectors on the pi will probably not match the IP65 requirements at all, I even expect the composite video connector to have a 3mm hole straight through. The positions of the connectors will make rail mounting difficult too.

No, connectors have no IP rating,. You would need to use flying leads to IP rated connectors on the box.

This image shows at least two mounting holes on the left side of the raspberry logo near label c5 and s2

they are not mounting holes really

I would suspect those holes are there to hold the SD card socket.

Back in my Ham radio building days we used to use thin nylon channel and attach it to the sides of the enclosure then slide the circuit board in to the channels thus not needing any mounting holes. The only problem is, the enclosure needs to be the exact width. We used to make our own boxes too so that wasn't a problem. If I ever get the Rasp in my grubby little hands, I will figure out some king of enclosure.
