Aluminium battery and controller enclosures for electric skateboards.
First up is an aluminium controller housing for VESC retrofits of the Onewheel XR. The pre-series is available to purchase in the webshop for delivery end of January 2023.
The advantage of Floatboxx aluminium box compared to plastic boxes:
- Strong ! Does not break under heavy use
- Aluminium welded construction
- pressed stainless steel inserts for the lid
- Aluminium sidewalls with M5 threaded holes to mount to the rails
- The VESC can be mounted on the bottom and fixed on the M3 threaded studs.
- More space for Buzzer, BMS, rESCue, extra Li-Ion cells...
- Easy access for DIY: Only the footpad has to be unscrewed to access the lid. No need to remove rails, bumper, connector cover.
- Waterproof (IP rating TBC, full waterproofing only achieved with correct installation of connectors and badgering)
- The handle remains available
- Mounting holes for 3D printed LED strip holder
- Improved heat dissipation for the controller:
- The box is completely made of aluminum allowing optimal heat transfer.
- The bottom of the controller box is in contact with outside air
- the foamrubber sealing is not compressed completely so the elastic properties are maintained
- rails: stock, Thunderrails, WTF, Varials
- bumpers: stock, BANGS, Badger bumpers
