DFROBOT or similar LCD keypad enclosure for arduino.
Connectors cutouts are for Deutsch Autosport connectors.
Autodesk inventor format is included should you wish to edit the models.
The slot in the back cover is sized to fit a sparkfun powercell for charging.
The arduinos used in this build are the olimex 328, the olimex leonardo or arduino leonardo or similar.
This case is designed for a dfrobot shield and a chipkit uno. It should work with a arduino uno.
The back has standoffs that lock the boards in. The button is a rocker that makes the 4 buttons easier to press. The reset button is accessible through a hole.
V2 has a new fillet and tweaks the lcd standoffs to make room for 3 screws to lock the LCD board in. These LCDs are poorly designed but this case does a good job of locating and supporting them.
The back now incorporates a slot for the sparkfun powercell.
The middle connector can be substituted for a pushbutton. Ebay has tons of them for cheap. (Search for waterproof pushbutton, BK33B) It seems to be a knock off of an APEM design. I recommend using a pololu pushbutton switch board with the sparkfun powercell. It makes for a really trick powerbutton setup.
V2 does not have access to the programming USB port. The feature is still included in the model but it is supressed. Various duino clones have different locations so better to leave it out.
The short button is just that, a bit shorter.
