    Hi All

    I have just ordered my Stepper Drivers, Breakout board & P.S.U. I now need to house them. Can anyone recommend were to buy cases or enclosures to mount this equipment in, or any other mounting ideas.

    Regards

    Ray

    You could try your local electrical wholesaler. They should be able to supply an enclosure easily.

  4. Common ideas:

    Old PC case

    Wall mounted electrical cabinet (often can find used ones on ebay like here and here )

    Fabricated alumnium sheet box

    The links I posted before are all 99p + 16 postage... i got mine a couple of years back and the postage wasn't as high but IIRC the box was 1 (not the same seller tho). If you won all 3 auctions he lists at 1 and drove to pick them up they'd be about 17.50 each i reckon :)

    I've used one of these for mine: Fibox - Cabinet - CAB ABS 504020 G think they was about 75 at the time. Its nice, ABS, Din support, IP rated and so on.

    Cant wait to finish it, got a nice little setup to go inside.
