System Blue PCB 19.4 vs 20.6
#1
Hi All!

Can somebody confirm if I can use the case (housing) here https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3364124 that states it's for PCB 20.6 with my PCB 19.4?

From what I can see it seems to have the same layout, but I don't want to waste a lot of material and time on this to find out it doesn't fit...


Thanks!

Well, this image says 20.5 on the side and 19.4 at the mainboard.

I'm confused now. Anyway, I'll give it a try. I'll report back with results!

There GPS and Ethernet connectors on the back swapped positions between 19.3 and 19.4 due to interference.
Compare your board connectors with the box.
From what I can tell, it should work with your board.

Hi Dupreezd.

I printed it out and it works. There's just a squared hole which I don't know what it's supposed to be for over the power connector, but it works anyway.

I'd upload some pictures, but being my first print it looks a bit gruesome... The back part kind of looks like glued spaguetti.... A bit embarassing...


Thanks a lot for your help!

Call it modern art Smile

That square hole on the right is for a power on/off switch.

Each individual PCB board has own version number. The 20.5 revision number is the package PCB with all the boards. If one individual board is updated, the package PCB will be updated too.
