Sometimes it is useful to install PiZero based projects in a cabinet. There are several kits for din rail mounting of the Raspberry Pi on the market, but no solutions for the Pi0. This tutorial will show you how to install a PiZero (W/H) or BananaPi Zero with our new RasPiBox Zero kit in a cabinet
The kit includes a prototyping PCB with integrated 5V power supply. So you can use for example 24V DC by the cabinet to power the Pi0 inside the enclosure.
In the first step you have to assemble the PCB of the RasPiBox kit. Please follow the construction manual.
Now you can add optional circuits to the breadboard area.
Mount the pcb in the bottom shell of the enclosure and fix it with 2 screws
now you can plug the PiZero to the main PCB:
If you will need an accessable USB-A socket from the outside, you have to solder some additional wires between the USB-A port and the corresponding testpoints of the Pi0
It's very important that the wires for D+ and D- have exactely the same length. The optimal length for the cables is 6-7 cm.
Depending on the used terminals you have to remove the terminal covers of the top shell.
These covers comes with rated break points. You can remove it with a screw driver and a nose pliers
After mounting the top shell you be ready to mount the RasPiBox Zero in a cabinet:
