The kit is constructed from FR4 PCB laminate material. This means that the cutouts and holes are accurately sized and the panels fit together really well. I would like to see a passthru for the line in. In my application, I have another PSU that controls the router motor and needs to connect to line in. I ended up drilling a hole in the bottom plate and putting a grommet there so that I could feed both PSU’s from the line in.
Also, the bottom screws (perhaps all of them) need to be countersunk in order for the PSU to sit flat on the rail.
This is a well designed kit.
I used it with an ASICMINER 36V 500W power supply instead of the Meanwell ones that Open Builds sells. It worked great. My power supply is taller than then Meanwells, but everything fit just fine. The case top plate protects the connections even though the supply body is higher than the case.
A quick and easy safety upgrade to Power Supplies used on cnc and printers.
This power case is a really nice design with easy hook-up, quality cut parts and easy operational features
