Raspberry Pi 3 users that are looking for a case which has been specifically designed for industrial uses, may be interested in the new Modee Pi case which is created from a single piece of metal which is then folded into shape to provide a protective casing around your Raspberry Pi 3 as well as providing mounting.
The Modee Raspberry Pi 3 case has been developed by Wellbro and has taken to Kickstarter to raise the small amount of capital it requires to go into production. Check out the video below to learn more about his construction and features.
Modee is a simple and robust case for the Raspberry Pi3, the purpose is not to create just another Pi case but to make a robust and affordable design that can be incorporated into industrial applications.
The idea is to incorporate modee into new and existing automated machinery at a level that is affordable to small manufacturers and startups. We also hope that this funding will be the first stepping stone in building a range of products for the manufacturing industry. We also believe that many engineering industries don’t use the latest technology due to affordability and that by introducing the Pi to industrial applications through Modee we can automate many conventional processes.
Once assembled the bottom of the case is open which allows easy access to all of the Pi’s pins when the case is turned over. Once all wiring is completed the case can then be flipped back over to conceal any wiring whilst allowing the wires to protrude through the rear of the case.
The case also has 4 mounting holes, the purpose of these holes are to allow Modee to be bolted to future machinery & equipment that we are looking to develop for industrial applications. Modee is a laser cut stainless steel enclosure which will be shipped flat along with fixings and assembly instructions. By shipping in its flat state we can keep postage costs low and keep manufacturing lead times low.
