Description

Pandora provides a fast, light, rugged, and flexible enclosure solution for PC/104 systems. In the Pandora concept, one end cap comprises a base plate on which you construct your PC/104 stack and attach cables. Once your board and cable assembly is complete, you simply insert the system into the enclosure body and bolt it in place. Then attach your cables to the second end cap and bolt it into place. Pandora also includes plenty of space all around your boards for cable runs. This results in a solid, reliable, easy-to-use enclosure system and also enables quick disassembly if needed.

Pandora’ design features smooth outer walls, inegrated pre-tapped mounting screw holes, counter-sunk panel mounting holes, and flush-mount hardware to provide a clean, finished unit with simplified assembly effort and maximum interior space.

Pandora is available in black finish. It comes in multiple sizes, from a slim 1.7” that houses one or two boards, up to a roomy 10” length that accommodates multiple boards plus a hard drive or other equipment.

Standard end caps are available, either blank or with pre-drilled PC/104 mounting holes and wall mount ears so you can mount the system to a wall or bulkhead. Custom end caps can be made as well by using Diamond's PBEC-00-K blank end cap and drilling or punching holes and cutouts to meet your own needs.

Each standard Pandora case comes with one blank end cap, one end cap with PC/104 mounting holes for bottom-up assembly (2 end caps total), and stainless steel mounting screws.

Pandora for Diamond SBCs

Pandora provides an especially rugged and convenient packaging solution for Diamond's Athena III, Aurora, Helios or Rhodeus SBCs. The SBC mounts directly to a panel I/O board that provides industry-standard connectors for all I/O features. This panel i/o board then mounts directly to a specially-designed front plate. The resulting assembly requires no cables and can fit in our smallest enclosure, measuring only 1.7” thick. A single panel I/O board and matching end cap is available to match any Diamond PC/104 SBC with and without the data acquisition circuit and connector. Click here for more information

Internal Mounting Plate



A 7" base plate (model number PBMT-07) is available for mounting boards vertically in the chassis instead of axially. The base plate allows for mounting of PC/104 boards in 3 different positions, as well as EPIC boards. The base plate slides into interior grooves in the enclosure body and bolts to the two end caps for rigidity. The PBMT-07 must be used with a 7" Pandora case, PB700-K, and two end caps model number PBEC-06-K. This is available as a complete 7" enclosure kit, model number PB7-INT-01-K.

Hard Drive Mounting Board



Install a notebook hard drive inside the Pandora enclosure easily with our ACC-HDDMOUNT accessory board. This board mounts a 2.5 notebook hard drive right on the bottom of the PC/104 stack in the air gap created by the PC/104 bus connector pins, without requiring any additional case length.
