Breadboards are mostly used to experiment and quickly prototype circuits before either moving the said circuit to a perfboard or designing your own PCB. But if you ever need to transport your messily wired breadboard, let alone used it outdoors, you’d need a case.
That’s exactly what Circuit Armour has built with Breadbox Double, a weatherproof breadboard enclosure designed to house two standard 1/2 sized breadboards.
The Breadbox Double enclosure is 3D-printed with ABS, features a rubber foam seal between the base and cover to create a dust-and-waterproof seal, a waterproof connector for the wires, as well as a tiny lens that allows an LED to be viewed from the outside.
The enclosure can be mounted to a wall, tree, planks, etc.. thanks to 12 mounting holes on the side of the enclosure. Once installed, you can still loosen the screws and remove the top cover to make any modifications or repair to the circuit.
Circuit Armour decided to create its own breadboard enclosure because off-the-shelf cases would not be of the right-size, require time-consuming modifications, and maybe be hard to open after installation.
Breadbox Double enclosure is sold on Tindie for $29.99. If you browse Circuit Armour Tindie shop, you’ll also find Breadbox case for a single breadboard, and Perfbox to house one 1/2 sized Adafruit Perf board.
