ProtoStax Enclosures

ProtoStax - The Enclosure that Evolves with Your Prototype

The stackable, modular, extensible and hackable enclosure for your prototyping needs! ProtoStax enclosures are modular and stackable, allowing you to create endless combinations and configurations that evolve as your prototype evolves!

Weather Station with Raspberry Pi, ePaper Display and ProtoStax Enclosure

Modern Visual Design with Strength and Durability

Here are Some Features

  • Assembly is a snap

  • Modular design makes final assembly easy!

Modular design makes final assembly easy!

But there's more ...!

Different Configurations Keep Up with Your Prototyping Needs

ProtoStax Enclosure / Case in Platform Configuration showing Arduino

Use it as a Prototyping Platform

When you begin prototyping, the Platform configuration acts as a prototyping plate, with your board firmly mounted to the bottom plate, giving you ultimate access to the board. Removable rubber feet will help protect your table or surface as well, and elevate the board!

ProtoStax Enclosure / Case in Open Configuration showing Arduino

Use it as an Open Enclosure

In the Open configuration, add the vertical bracing elements and top, but leave out the side walls. This is useful when you want protection from grubby fingers but still have accessibility from the sides, and good airflow - useful for that Raspberry Pi 4 that's churning away on bitcoin mining! 

ProtoStax Enclosure / Case in Fully Closed Configuration showing Arduino

Use it as a Fully Closed Enclosure

Get maximum protection with our Fully Closed configuration. Our beautiful, elegant enclosures are not just functional but great-looking, light-weight, and offer considerable protection for your project! They also offer ample room inside for a shield, or a HAT and components.

Mix-and-Match, Customize and Expand

Stack Horizontally

Horizontally Stack as Platforms

You can start stacking different ProtoStax enclosures horizontally. For example, set up an Arduino and a Breadboard as prototyping Platforms side-by-side. This configuration provides a stable platform that gives you ultimate access while prototyping.

Horizontally Stack as Open Enclosures

Seamlessly transition from our Platform configuration to an Open Enclosure configuration with no side walls, providing additional protection while maintaining open access to your boards.

Add side walls when you're done for the ultimate in protection and a professional, finished look! The side panels also have Cutouts for getting sensor- and/or other wiring in and out of the enclosure.

ProtoStax Enclosures / Cases have no limit to the amount of horizontal stacking

No limit to the amount of Horizontal Stacking!

By connecting different ProtoStax enclosures side-by-side, there is no limit to the amount of horizontal stacking you can do as your creation grows! Of course, beyond a certain point, you may also want to start thinking vertically! 😊

Stack Vertically

... or Both Vertically and Horizontally!

ProtoStax Enclosures are Designed with convenience in mind

Manage Your Cables

ProtoStax enclosures have been designed with your prototyping needs in mind, providing efficient and easily accessible cable management Cutouts in the side walls. These Cutouts allow you to smoothly insert any cables and thereby access wiring to external systems.

When you are vertically stacking ProtoStax units that are Open Enclosures, you can also use the Wall Slots on the Top/Bottom plates to thread your cables through, keeping everything neat and tidy. These unique additions allow for endless customization for every prototype design!

Finished ProtoStax Enclosures / Cases are stackable too!

Included with every ProtoStax enclosure are rubber feet that not only protect your surfaces and device, but also slightly elevate your ProtoStax enclosure for increased air flow.

You can also stack separate ProtoStax enclosures for easy storage—the rubber feet fit into the screw heads of the enclosure below. Yet another attention to detail for an enclosure that evolves with your prototype!

Extension Kits Let You Add Functionality to Your Enclosure Easily

ProtoStax currently supports a multitude of Arduino devices and Raspberry Pi (A+, B+, and Zero) boards. ProtoStax for Breadboard is useful for breadboarded circuits as well as for any breadboard-friendly micro-controllers and single-board computers.  

You can use also use the vanilla enclosure to house any custom board that fits its dimensions.

The acrylic material & modular design make it eminently hackable. Drill cutouts or mounting holes into the side walls, top or base plate. You can modify a single side without affecting the others pieces (working with a single flat piece of acrylic is also easier). The modular design makes assembly a snap.

Extension Kits offer customizations that you can easily apply to your ProtoStax Enclosures without any hacking.
