Custom parts and enclosures

Load Cell Foot Mount (Print 4)

Load cells should snap into place if the filament has a bit of flex to it - no adhesive needed. Credit to user b2vn on Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1100304

ST-LRWAN1 Housing

This latched housing allows easy access to the LoRa Board without detaching the entire assembly. Print in place with only supports where the part attaches to the build plate.

Raspberry Pi Housing

Holds the RPi 3B and slides into the Raspberry Pi Mount.

Raspberry Pi Mount

Attach to the underside of the enclosure lid.

LongHive SW Assembly

Prepared in SW 2019.

Schematics

LongHive Enclosure Drawing

The base was designed to be assembled with 2x4 planks and 1/4" sheets of plywood.

LongHive Breadboard

An Arduino UNO is shown in the schematic, but please replace the UNO with the ST-B-L072Z-LRWAN1 from the Helium Developer Kit, which has the same form factor.
