Camdenboss to Show Wide Range of Components, Enclosures and Customisation Services at Electronica 2014

– Raspberry Pi enclosures, piezo switches and DIN rail housings to star –

CamdenBoss will be exhibiting a wide range of products and customisation services from its innovative ranges of electromechanical components and enclosures at the forthcoming Electronica 2014 exhibition (11th to 14th November 2014, Messe, Munich, Germany).

Products on show for the first time include development board enclosures for Raspberry Pi B+ and Banana Pi PCBs, a new DIN rail mounting housing supplied complete with terminal blocks, a new range of piezo switches, keypads and access control products, and a room sensor style enclosure for fire detector and security applications.

With its new Raspberry Pi B+ enclosures, CamdenBoss has risen to the challenge of creating a stylish, innovative and affordable housing for the newly release B+ board. The new design is sleek, contemporary and maximises the functionality of the Raspberry Pi B+ by allowing complete access to all ports without the need to remove the top of the enclosure.

Offered in crystal clear, white and black and Carbon Fibre acrylic capped ABS, this easy to assemble snap-fit enclosure houses the Raspberry Pi B+ securely with clip-in PCB grooves in the base. The CamdenBoss housing features all cut-outs pre-machined in the correct locations for every I/O connection and uniquely has a removable top panel opening to allow easy and direct access to the general purpose I/O (GPIO) connector which CamdenBoss believes users will prefer as they can keep the top cover in place when using this feature.

For the Banana Pi, CamdenBoss's enclosure houses the PCB via clip-in grooves so no glue or screws are required. All cut-outs are pre-cut into the case along with pre-defined microphone sensor holes. Front LVDS connector and rear camera slots can be opened with a flat headed screwdriver while the GPIO headers knock-out can be pressed or drilled out.

Wall mountable and supplied with four rubber feet, the Banana Pi enclosure is available in crystal clear, black, Carbon Fibre acrylic ABS and Yellow all with gloss finish.

CamdenBoss will also show its room sensor enclosure designed for wall mount applications. Moulded in ABS UL94-V0, the front and back clip together while internal PCB mount pillars are moulded into the front and back sections of the housing. There are also internal clips for snap-in mounting of PCBs.

Additional features include recessed front and rear faces for overlay/additional labelling, plain and vented versions available, rear knock-out for cable entry, multiple mounting options including single gang UK plug back box mount points and options for custom embossing of company logo onto the front face.

Also on show will be CamdenBoss's latest series of switches, keypads and access control products featuring piezoelectric technology.

The CamdenBoss piezo switch range comprises one non-illuminated and two illuminated types. The non-illuminated switches have an 18mm diameter actuator and are available in natural, red and green anodised aluminium. The two illuminated 28mm diameter actuator switches provide point illumination with red/green LED feedback. For optimal colour-coded feedback a pair of white plastic switches fitted with internal LEDs offer red, green and blue LED illumination.

CamdenBoss' keypads offer high reliability and durability for tough environments. Available in 3 x 4 and 4 x 4 formats they contain no moving parts, are sealed to IP68 and have a lifespan of 50 million operations.

CamdenBoss additionally offers four new dedicated access control products. A stainless steel exit switch with red/green illumination offers a robust solution for high traffic areas. A HID proximity reader is housed in a single rugged aluminium enclosure. A stand-alone door entry controller contains all the circuitry to programme and operate a single-door access point. Finally an illuminated combined HID proximity reader and 2 x 6 keypad offers access by either means of entry.

CamdenBoss will also show its new vertical DIN rail mount housing that is uniquely supplied complete with terminal blocks and features a clip together design for fast assembly. The CVB-Plus housing is a 22.5mm wide vertical DIN rail mount enclosure moulded in green self-extinguishing UL94-V0 flame retardant PA66. With solid and vented versions available, the new CVB-Plus features front and side label recesses and is supplied with four 4-pole 5mm pitch pluggable terminal blocks yielding 16 poles within the width of the enclosure making it a unique offering in the market.

CamdenBoss is exhibiting in Hall B1 on Stand 149.
