s7.io by KLiP Industries provides essential tools for IoT engineers, makers and entrepreneurs. s7 Rubicon is the world’s first modular weatherproof enclosure specifically designed to support the common maker platforms such as Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and BeagleBone.
Rubicon is a modular enclosure system specifically designed to help deploy and protect your projects in style. It is IP67 water- and dustproof, supports glands and conduit fittings and is designed to be installed just about anywhere.
Rubicon combines high quality, extreme durability and superb flexibility – great for a wide range of indoor and outdoor applications such as sensors, IoT gateways, controllers and many more. Rubicon is ready to shield your Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, Arduino, and other custom hardware from sun, rain, snow, and flood.
This is currently the only place to get the S7 Rubicon Starter Kit at a low introductory price that won't last.

Why Use Rubicon
Providing proper protection to your project is essential to preventing excessive maintenance once it is installed. We designed Rubicon to evolve with your requirements – we will also be offering spare parts and accessories in the very near future. Deploy with confidence.
May be stacked 2x without loss of IP67 rating
Every Rubicon enclosure has a machined 0.138” (3.5mm) thick aluminum base plate that is strong and light, yet is easy to modify.
Rubicon is designed to be mounted without opening the enclosure.
Compatible with standard wood screws, and up to M5 bolts.
Deep and shallow covers are available.
Mounting patterns for Raspberry Pi (A+/B+/2/3), BeagleBone, or Arduino Uno / Zero
May mount up to 2 shields/HATs/capes (varies with height)
Designed to be compatible with up to PG16 waterproof glands, ½” (US) conduit fittings, and SMA/RPSMA radio pass-throughs
Q: What is it?
A: The Rubicon is an electronics enclosure made for single-board computers like the Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and others.
Q: What can I use this for?
A: It's made to keep your electronics safe outdoors in direct sunlight and around humidity, but it's also good looking enough to be used wall-mounted indoors next to your smart home control center.
Q: What products does it support?
A: The interior screw-down hole pattern and accessories support Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and BeagleBone. Other boards can fit with some customization.
Q: Which models of Raspberry Pi can I mount inside Rubicon?
A: Models A+, B+, B 2, B 3 are supported without any modifications. Models A and B may be mounted after drilling and tapping a few holes in the base plate.
Q: Which BeagleBone models can I mount inside Rubicon?
A: BeagleBone Classic, Black, and Green.
Q: Which Arduino models can I mount inside Rubicon?
A: Uno, Zero and any other boards with Uno mounting pattern. The Due board is a bit too big and will not fit without significant modifications.
Q: Do I have to drill any holes in order to mount any of the above “supported” boards?
A: No. You will have to screw a few stand-offs into the base plate and then mount the board. As long as you are mounting the “supported” hardware, there is no need to drill or tap the base plate. You will have to drill holes for glands and/or conduit in order to get the wiring into the box.
Q: Are all plugs accessible on all boards?
A: Most plugs are accessible but many have limitations. For instance, the HDMI plug on Pi is accessible only in certain mounting positions, which make some of the USB plugs not accessible and vice versa. We worked hard to achieve balance between the enclosure size and what can go into it.
Q: Is there room for a rechargeable battery?
A: Yes, as long as it is less than about 5mm thick, it can fit underneath the board while leaving the rest of the box fully accessible.
Q: Is Rubicon UV resistant and how is that achieved?
A: Rubicon is UV resistant All materials used are inherently UV resistant -- aluminum, ASA plastic (Acrylonitrile styrene acrylate) and/or PMMA (Acrylic) for clear covers. ASA is the same material used in exterior automotive parts. Acrylic has very high UV resistance. Aluminum does not care for UV at all.
