This is an Acrylic case for the DPS and DP line of power supply modules.

Any of the Grey box power supply modules here should fit this case : https://rdtech.aliexpress.com/store/923042

Note that the pictures are of aprototype design with a different front jack setup and put together with hot glue, I found that banana jacks had too much resistance for the high amps this power supply is capable of so I changed it. I also did not have acrylic glue at the time. Hot glue works great, but is ugly.

I don't have pictures of the newest version but picture it without the ugly glue and perfectly clear.

The case is designed around .08 inch or ~2,2mm thick acrylic sheets that can be purchased from home depot or lowes.

The main module sits on the front (duh) and the holes on the left side are for standard banana jacks for low current projects. The smaller holes on the right are for directly connected wires. These are highly recommended for high current items as they have much less resistance. For the DPS5015 12 gauge wires are recommended.

The hole on the back side is for a standard 60mm 5V fan for cooling if desired.

The holes on the bottom are for mounting the circuit board of the larger units. M3 screws are used to screw down the stock pegs the units come with.

The rectangle hole on the back is for an XT60 connector for the input power and the round hole above it is for a 20mm round power switch. You can find these on ebay by simply searching round power switch. The actual opening is 20.8mm.


Glue together, make sure that you have the front panel on the right way, it is easy to get it backwards.

You will need to glue this together, proper acrylic glue is recommended but super glue and even hot glue works fine if you are not worried about it looking pretty.
