question about Arduino Enclosure

by kathyduan on Sat Jan 05, 2013 10:28 pm

hi,
I purchased your white Arduino enclosure, http://www.adafruit.com/products/271 as you see on the pics ,there 2 pieces of small square board, and one same size but with 4 small holes. (actually i got 1 plastic board of hole, one without)
so i just wanne know what the use of this small plastic board with holes is, I think i can use the 4 pots on LCD place, but how can i fasten the small pots on the square board?

If you are using pots designed for breadboard or circuit board mounting, you can use a ProtoShield and position the pots under the holes. http://www.adafruit.com/products/51

The spacing is a bit too close for panel-mount pots. For those, you would be better off using the blank panel and drilling your own holes.
