Hole pattern for CG-1500 case

Hole pattern for CG-1500 case. (Possibly can fit controller and both power supplies in a CG-1500)

It will fit two power supplies in the cover of a CG-1500. And the board will align nicely with the standoffs, but some of the standoffs under the board will need to be removed because they are taller than the four you use.

My method for attaching the power supplies was crude but effective. There were no attachment flanges on Ray Wu's Meanwell supplies, so I used tiewraps. I put small pieces of duct tape on them to stop their shifting around.



moved to start new topic.  Trying to keep the announcements to just that, not a discussion.  Sorry I didn't lock this one. (kevin)

In one of David's pic, he took apart the power supply and mounted the bottom half directly to the cover with some stove bolts and nuts, then put them back together again.  I will look for that pic.

I did not take the power supplies apart. I just got the right size screw into the threaded hole in the power supplies

ok, I thought you said you opened the PS to mount them....

That makes it easier, just need to get holes spaced right.

I saw those threaded holes but:
A. Didn't think I could hit them
B. Didn't think the thread engagement was enough
C. I trust tie wraps

I plan on using a sheet of paper to create a simple template to get the hole spacing correct.  I haven't tried this yet, still waiting on the power supplies to arrive.  It was just a thought, construction paper will be a little stiffer than plain as well.

Industrial strength Velcro works great also.

I found on the inside of the cases if you want to make some mounts is to sand the plastic and use
JB-Weld
JB-Quick Weld
of even Plumbers epoxy putty


you can screw the screws into the item you want to mount but leave them sticking out as far as you like them to stand off
then put a little JB Weld where the screws will sit then set them in the JB WELD and let dry.
((((( REMEMBER TO SAND THE PLASTIC ))))))

This was you have a case that is still water tight.... I am an HVAC service Tech and I have seen many a time what water does
to circuit boards as most furnaces have the control board in the bottom panel and any time a drain stops up on an up-flow system
even if it doesnt have problems that day the circuits start corroding and eventually fry something
