The ClassicPod Chassis

The ClassicPod chassis is made using strong yet lightweight black anodised slotted aluminium profiles. The slotted profile makes it easy to fasten components and hardware to the frame using readily available M4 screws and t-nuts. With the ClassicPod chassis you can secure:

  • A monitor arm and monitor (up to 22in)
  • Cable tidies to secure wiring
  • Storage containers
  • DIN rail, etc.

The ClassicPod chassis comes standard with a powerboard (UK or IEC) and a 2m mains cable to power up your projects. The mains power cable simply clicks into the board and is fed through the cable grommets on both sides.

The ClassicPod chassis has been designed for storage in an IKEA or similar bookshelf. Rubber feet are installed onto the bottom of the frame to reduce any surface scratching during use and storage.

Testimonials for inventapod

Stefano Landini

Thanks to Inventapod, my PhD research test rig on Li-ion Thermal Management Optimisation is perfectly organised, professional and tidy. The Inventapod is capable to enclose the entire instrumentation (one NI Power Source Unit, DAQ systems, thermal chamber PID controller, AC and DC power supplies), maximising safety against hazards and permitting 24/7 unattended operation. Finally, the unit is customisable, leading to implementation of a cooling fan to better thermalize all electronics. Our research group is eager to purchase further units for all BEng/MSc/PhD projects.
