Wow, thanks for the links-
The conformal coating idea is a good one- I suspect that would void the warrantee on the MBs though. A good idea for the boards I build myself though, and not a bad price on it.
I don't think my price point will support a full waterproof housing, but will be happy to look.
That "Hurricane" unit looks perfect for what I need. I'll track down a price, but I suspect it is out of my range too.
The VoomPC has a fan and venting at one end, but I could block that. What I've not found for it is a heat-pipe for the processor. I suspect that a system would overheat without something pulling the heat off the processor and dumping it in to the case.
I'm also concerned about the NIC plugs. I'm thinking of maybe siliconing the plugs in or using silicon O-ring lube to seal the pins. I don't want to make a big mess for the customers to deal with though.
I'm trying to get the Serener GS-L02 on order so I have something to start with. It's the best match for my needs that I've found so far. Just finishing the details on the mother board and all before I commit.
Thanks a lot for the help-
