Pressure ... The FINAL Frontier?
Shared for those who appreciate that if we can make it work under water, then we can next make it work in-orbit, here be the latest addition to our water-obsessed, electronics support, projects. Designed to readily accept 1" circular power plants, motor mounts, DIP control centers, & other payloads.
Decidedly a "lego" approach, the idea is that we can independently seal-off our power plants, ballast / pressure / flotation chambers, and payloads so as to plug-em together in-the-field, as well as in the lab.
Fits a common "C" Cell Battery,
18650.stl is an electrical bulkhead bus strategy, using same.
The 4mm overlapping clip-area works great with gaskets, o-rings, & greases. Caveat polymer.
Tested to 20' without a leak, as-is. Should do 40?
- We use a flat blade (read 'dull pant scraper') to pry 'em apart the first few times whilst wearing the proper eye, finger, & squishy-human, body protection.
Also keeps toys, tech & those miscellaneous 'tasties dry in our pockets & tool boxes, as well.
While epoxy is great for potting things, when it comes to buoyantly supporting our 'tech, note that "Great Stuff" is worthy of it's name: Drill holes in the bulkhead joiner (either "Cap" / "JoinWalled", above) for overflow / expansion, then pipe in the same around your wires.
