Enclosure for Sigma 22 power supply?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I received my Sigma 22 kit yesterday, and was somewhat surprised at the size of the transformer. The Hammond case recommended on the AMB web site won't even come close to fitting the PWB and 80 VA transformer. I'm looking at the Graybox Series B enclosures, but I'm not sure if a 1U case will be tall enough. (1.72", - 0.150). It might fit, but just barely. Has anyone squeezed a Sigma 22 into a 1U chassis? I'd like to avoid a 2U case just to minimize the bulk.

 

I was also looking at the Hammond Sinkbox. The parts will fit, but I would probably need to add some venting to the enclosure, which will mess up the anodizing. frown.gif

Also from Hammond is this series:

A little pricey, but good looking and everything will fit.

 

Any other suggestions/ideas?

I had to double check, but take a look at loop_'s σ22 on the β22 gallery page for the layout of the Hammond case. It's a tight fit, but it does work.

You're right, it does look like it fits. Guess I'll go with that one after all. (For some reason I had a mental meltdown on this. I'm better now )
