Description: The Arduino Mega 2560 R3 is a very big and powerful microcontroller,needless to say, you want to keep it protected. Why not protect it with one of these snazzy plastic enclosures? These cases protect the Arduino Mega 2560 from things like rogue wires that might short it out while still allowing full access to the board! Simply snap the Mega into the bottom half of the enclosure, then snap the two sides together.

As you may have noticed, these Mega Enclosures are actually tan opaque black color. The enclosures are perfect for blending your Mega into a black surface, giving your project a sleeker look.

The enclosure provides slots to access each header, USB port, power jack, the AREF and ICSP connectors as well as feet and vents to ensure the board gets proper cooling and plus-shaped wall mounting slots. This is a really durable case that will do a great job protecting your Arduino Mega 2560 R3!

Dimensions: 10.8x6.1x2.5cm

  • Just received one of these - it was far better built than the price tag leaves you to believe. it’s quite sturdy, and clips directly onto the board on the edges. The mounting holes of the board also sit on molded and drilled mounting bosses on the bottom of the board. Even without the screws, the board does not move at all. There is an integrated, molded tang on the top of the board, with a pin reaching down over the reset switch, so you are able to push the plastic button and reset the board (a feature not mentioned in the description). There are plastic rings molded into the outside bottom of the case that act as feet - rubber feet would also mount perfectly here (as the ring would keep it from shifting), but alas the board mounting screws and rubber feet are not included.

    Overall I’m extremely pleased with the case and my one gripe is that they do not make an Uno sized one! I tested an uno and it fit perfectly. They really need to make these in Uno size, as it’s a great case, and the only in that price range (that I’m aware of).

  • will this work with a Sensor Shield like the following from Amazon?
