Box for electronics - PCB

  1. Apr 9, 2010 #1

    I'm designing a box for 6 PCBs. It will fly on stratospheric balloon. Do you know a solution of mounting PCBs to box walls, which will provide strong and stable connection? I was thinking about slots in internal walls, but that can be not enough.

    I found interesting solution:

    Do you know something more about that type of mounting? Where can I get these parts, which hold PCBs?

    That looks like it was custom machined.
    You can get regular diecast boxes with pcb guides from the normal electroncs supplies.

    But - if you are concerned about weight and ruggedness more than easy servicing I would probably connect all the boards together in a stack with screw standoffs between them and then put them in a box on some sort of foam/rubber/shock-absorbing mount
