Looking for where to buy these
« on: May 16, 2017, 12:33:18 AM »
Hi.

I've seen a lot of these panel mount devices on eBay which come in varieties to measure and display voltage, current, etc.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/262453318679?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&var=561256714783&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/272248924938?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&var=571059438423&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

The devices are basically a small PCB which clips in to a plastic housing which then clips in to a hole on a panel.

I am interested in obtaining the plastic enclosures on their own and perhaps make my own PBCs to fit inside them (not sure exactly what for yet) but I have been unable to find anywhere that sells them or even a model number. If anyone knows could they please provide me with a model number or a place to buy them?

Lascar Electronics in the UK used to supply them but a google for panel meter bezel give all sorts of hits for similar looking things.

Thanks for the reply.

I tried that but couldn't find what I was looking for.

That's not really what I'm looking for.

Also I have spent a few hours trying to find these on Google by the way.

Get the cheapest Chinese panel meter, strip the case and sell the boards on eBay for 75% the price. You get a nice $1.5 plastic case.
SIGSEGV is inevitable if you try to talk more than you know. If I say gibberish, keep in mind that my license plate is SIGSEGV.

Perhaps searching for the phrase:

"digital panel meter" enclosure

Will get you better results?

E.g. - https://www.google.com/search?q=%22digital+panel+meter%22+enclosure&num=30&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjJp_ijh5rUAhXB6SYKHSp0BQUQ7AkIXw&biw=1636&bih=776

(Image results only in above link)


EDIT - you can also try searching for 1/16 DIN enclosures.
