Do you need some extra cooling for your enclosure? With the ProtoStax Fan Kit, that would be a breeze! (umm... pun intended?! ;-)    

ProtoStax Fan Kit comes with a Top piece and a short side piece with mounting holes and cutout for a 25mm x 25mm  fan. 

You can optionally select 1 or 2 fans to add to the order, or feel free to use your own! The fans we provide have 0.1" (2.54 mm) female headers (Dupont connector), which makes it very convenient to plug them directly into your Raspberry Pi GPIO. 

This kit would typically be used with a Raspberry Pi (especially a Raspberry Pi 3B+ or 4B) but will work with any ProtoStax enclosure (if you have another compute intensive board or heat generating elements). 

This gives the you flexibility of placement of the fan to either the top of the enclosure, or the short side, or BOTH for added cooling - you can pick the best option based on your stacking needs as well as functionality and aesthetics. 

Simply replace the existing top of your ProtoStax Enclosure with the ProtoStax Fan Kit Top (with the fan screwed in), and/or replace the existing short side of your enclosure with the one from the ProtoStax Fan Kit. Voila!

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!

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!)
