Darryl Brown has the solution to weatherproof your computerized lighting electronics!
I just built a container for a 16 channel controller using a plastic two dollar container from K-mart. It was difficult to cut this plastic at first, then I went and got a Dremel cutting tip for plastic. It cut without making a gooey mess.
|I mounted plastic weather proof outlet covers on the outside. Both boards use the same power cord. I glued the Dasher board stand-offs with hot glue. They stay pretty snug.|
|The RJ45 jacks are at the bottom right of this picture.|
|The covers will help shield the light plugs in case of rain.|
|Everything seems to fit tight.|
|This is were I will probably mount it on my tree. Might move it, not|
