ProtoStax Fan Kit
ProtoStax Fan Kit
Low stock: 6 left
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!
Rated current: 0.15±10% Amp
Bearing Type: Sleeve
Fan speed: 10000±10%rpm
Cable Length: 15cm
This Extension Kit does not include the Enclosure. Make sure to add a ProtoStax Enclosure to your order if you don't already have it!

Getting Started w/ ProtoStax Enclosures
See how to set up & use ProtoStax enclosures for your next DIY Electronics/Computing project with Arduino, Raspberry Pi & other MCUs & SBCs
ProtoStax Enclosures are Stackable, Modular & Extensible
They ease your path from Prototype to Product! Make your prototypes useable and attractive with ProtoStax!
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!
Omit the side walls and just add the top for an open configuration with more airflow and open access.
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!)
