The stackablemodularextensible and hackable enclosure for your Breadboard or Custom board!

This case fits a 1/2 sized breadboard, or 3 tiny/mini-sized ones. You can fit a full-sized breadboard by horizontally stacking two enclosures. A microUSB/USB plug cutout makes it great with any breadboard-friendly micro-controllers or single-board computers. 

The case has an internal clearance of over 1.2 inches, which gives you ample room for components & wiring!

You can use this vanilla enclosure to house any custom board that fits its dimensions (see below).

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.

Modular and Stackable ProtoStax Enclosures adapt to Your Prototyping Needs:

All ProtoStax cases are compatible with each other and can be stacked side-by-side  or one on top of the other. Mix-&-match multiple ProtoStax cases and put together a larger enclosure from the individual ones! Our Breadboard+Arduino, or Breadboard+Raspberry Pi enclosures are popular bundles. 

ProtoStax enclosures provide different configurations that support different stages of prototyping. Start off with the base plate & protective rubber feet for a prototyping plate that give you full and open access to your device when prototyping, by mounting and protecting your board (and your surfaces thanks to rubber feet) and elevating the board. 

After you are done, add the side walls & top easily to form a fully enclosed case for maximum protection. Or leave out the side walls and just add the top for an open configuration with more airflow and open access.  The cases offer connectivity to external systems using our unique cable management methods (see below)

Features

  • Fits half-sized breadboard, or 3 tiny/mini-sized breadboards (4 if the side walls are omitted)
  • Use with any breadboard-friendly micro-controller thanks to the micro-USB/USB cutout
  • Internal clearance of over 1.2 in, which gives you ample room for components and wiring for your breadboard!
  • Made from high quality cast acrylic
  • Clear acrylic provides a beautiful finish with a modern visual design with full view of your electronics 
  • Metal standoffs and screws provide solid and durable support 
  • Rubber Feet protect your table surface while providing maximum airflow by elevating the enclosure
  • Cable Management: Easily accessible cable management cutouts in the side walls allow you to smoothly insert your cables & access wiring to external systems. In the Open Configuration, the Wall slots on the top and bottom plates (where the side walls usually insert into) can also be used for cable management for even more accessibility and organization.
  • You can mix, match, customize, and expand your project enclosure because ProtoStax enclosures are modular and stackable and work with each other.
