When used with the clear acrylic plastic tube option, it’s easy to see the components inside the enclosure, ideal for subsea development projects and open source projects. The aluminum tube option provides a greater depth rating, opaque appearance, and better thermal transfer for high power applications like power supply housings and battery housings.

A variety of end caps are available for the ends of the enclosure including an optically clear acrylic dome, optically clear flat end cap, and aluminum end caps with 0, 4, and 7 holes, making it easy to attach any of our products with M10 threads like cable penetrators and pressure sensors. We also provide the 2d and 3d files for the end caps, allowing you to design and create custom end caps out of flat material to produce fully customized enclosures for any application.
