Mounting

Would be great to see photos of how folks mounted their boxes , ran cables , and the power to these units......

I'm just getting started and a lot of the old post the picture isn't available to see...

this is my installation

07-01-18 I've been building an enclosure for the last month. I've posted photos in a zip file, under forums - enclosures (Neal). Please open it up and send me a comment. I'd like to know if it's working.

Mounting hardware

I used an old ammo box in one case with "waterproof" through-hulls (they weren't water tight), worked ok. Plenty of room for battery, pi, solar charge controller. Next one will have a different route for cables that will allow quick removal rather than threading through holes.

A second method for mounting hardware

In the second case, I''m using a NatHive (a two queen Demere system) https://twoqueenhive.com/. There is a convenient space between the two brood chambers to mount all desired equipment and have room left over.
