NanoPi R2S Gets All Metal Protective Case

NanoPi R2S Aluminum Metal Case
Written by androidpimp

FriendlyElec company team recently launched a new case made complete from CNC machined metal parts compatible with NanoPi R2s SBC. You can find about three types of case variants available for this board: plastic made, semi-open metal case, and newest closed metal-made case design.

The difference between different designs, Especially with the semi-open case, is that in the semi-open model, all ports and interfaces exposed to the environment, and an additional small fan helps with the heat disputation.

The new case protects the NanoPi R2 board completely. The cooling is also passive, meaning that there no moving/rotating parts such as fans, therefore its completely silent. The heat disputation is done more efficiently through the case envelope that is composed of a profile with fins that increase air contact and contribute to the cooling process.

The Metal Case price tag is $6.00 (excluding shipping). You can order it with the NanoPi R2s, and we think its an excellent worth deal if you are seeking an ideal protective metal case, especially a great fit when used in industrial environments. For more details, you are welcome to check the item in the official FriendlyElec store Here.
