Add a Waveshare RPi IR-CUT Camera & Tripod mount to your ProtoStax Enclosure with this Extension Kit. 

The kit comes with a Top Plate with mounting holes and cutouts for the Waveshare RPi IR-CUT Camera (or Waveshare RPi IR-CUT Camera (B)along with Side Plate(s) with #1/4-20 mounting holes to attach to a tripod.  Simply replace the existing pieces of your ProtoStax Enclosure with the ones from this kit. 

Works with any ProtoStax Enclosure for Raspberry Pi(B+/4B/A+/Zero). Shown with ProtoStax Enclosure for Raspberry Pi A+ in the images above. 

[Note: to use the camera with Raspberry Pi Zero / Zero W / Zero WH, you need to buy a camera cable suitable for the Raspberry Pi Zero, such as: Raspberry Pi Zero v1.3 Camera Cable]

The Top Plate has a cutout for a cable to toggle the Normal/Night-Vision mode, which you can easily then control via a GPIO of your Raspberry Pi. 

Note: This Kit works with the RPi IR-CUT Camera(B) as well, but beware that it is NOT easy to mount, as the RPi IR-CUT Camera(B) has a much larger lens that gets in the way of the mounting holes. For this camera, it would be easier for you to assemble the camera and IR lights first (as you would normally with this camera), and then use double-sided tape to attach it to the Top Plate of the ProtoStax Camera Kit for Waveshare RPi IR-CUT Camera. 

The example photos in the images above show the Night-Vision mode in action in low-light conditions. The night-vision mode was triggered using a GPIO pin using Python. You can also select the mode (normal vs. night-vision) in your boot config, in which case you don't need the GPIO or cable.

ProtoStax Enclosures are Stackable, Modular & Extensible

They ease your path from Prototype to Product! Make your prototypes useable and attractive with ProtoStax!

  • ProtoStax Enclosure / Case in Platform Configuration showing Arduino. Pre-drilled and threaded mounting holes make assembly easy and convenient. Acrylic risers elevate board off the surface for improved airflow

    Use it as a prototyping plate, with full and open access to your device while prototyping. Rubber feet protect your board and your table top! 

  • ProtoStax Enclosure / Case in Open Configuration showing Arduino

    Omit the side walls and just add the top for an open configuration with more airflow and open access. 

  • ProtoStax Enclosure / Case in Fully Closed Configuration showing Arduino

    Add side walls and the top to form a fully enclosed case for maximum protection. 

    The cases offer connectivity to external systems using our unique cable management methods (see features above)


Extension kits and Add-Ons allow you to add functionality to your enclosure. Add a fan or two, switches, camera & tripod mount, and more!

Just filter by "extension kit" or "add-on" in the main shopping page to view the choices, or click below!

All ProtoStax cases are compatible with each other and can be stacked side-by-side (horizontally) or one on top of the other (vertically). Mix-and-match multiple ProtoStax cases and put together a larger enclosure from the individual ones! Our Raspberry Pi + Breadboard, or Raspberry Pi + Arduino enclosures are popular bundles. You can also mix-and-match various Raspberry Pi enclosures (A+, B/B+, Zero enclosures to build your hybrid cluster with whatever Pis you have lying around!)
