I'll try to chime in here. I am also new to forum, and have some pictures I took of the "keep thinking as you go" type of cabinet that I came up with for my MES. I'm in WI, and knew I would be battling bad weather here shortly, and wanted to make something quick to shelter the unit.
I first built a bench with casters I had laying around here. I then thought why not build a cabinet right on top of that. Ive also added an Auber
PID controller that is not made for bad weather conditions. I have an enclosed area by my back porch door, so I cut a hole in the wall to accomodate the electrical cord and probe wires so that the controller and Mav 732 are inside. The over hang on my porch roof is approxiamately 2 feet. I left the back side of cabinet open completely, and left plenty of open space for the elbow on vent. I've also cut an opening for the chip loader. I use that only partially open for venting the AMNPS. There is plenty of open air for unit not to heat up, but also provides a perfect atmosphere for bad weather conditions. The hinges on the door are pinned, so in the summer time for more circulation the door comes off easily. I've done three all night sessions with this so far, and it works great. First two I got up a couple of times during the night to check if everything was alright, and it was. Now I can sleep. I hope I can show these pictures here. (My first time with this) I've also put a stainless sheet over the window so I don't have to clean it all the time.(PITA) I hope this helps someone to come up with ideas of their own, depending on their own situations. Thanks for viewing! Dave.
