The Dog House is a safe place to put your Beagle! It is an industrial grade enclosure and 20 watt dual power supply that is up to 85% efficient, specifically designed for the BeagleBone Black.
The enclosure is made from 16 gauge powder coated steel. It is tough enough for the most rugged installations and includes provision for DIN rail mounting with removable clips. The enclosure consists of an upper section with the integrated power supply and a lower section for your BeagleBone
The 20 watt power supply provides galvanic isolated 5V at 2A supply for the BeagleBoneBlack via the cape connectors as well as another galvanic isolated 5V at 2A supply for peripheral use.
