We’ve seen quite a few Arduino enclosures come and go, but few of them were quite this sturdy (or quite this pretty). The TuxCase from Tux-Lab is a nice snug enclosure for Uno style Arduino boards that is machined out of a chunk of 6061 extruded aluminum bar stock. A .118" thick acrylic cover protects the top side of the board while letting you see the status LEDs and providing access to things like the GPIO, ISP header and reset button. Of course there are openings milled out for the USB and barrel jack connectors so you can easily connect power to the board in the enclosure.
Eight 4-40 screws are included for attaching the Arduino board to the enclosure and for securing the acrylic cover. Also, there are four additional mounting hole drilled and chamfered at 100 degrees into the base of the enclosure.
Note: Shields will work with this case, but they will need long headers. If you have a shield that has through-hole components, the clearance might not be enough. Use some of the stackable headers (in the related products below) to gain extra clearance.
