Overall Design ConsiderationsNOTE:Materials and fasteners to consider when designing xFOCE enclosures and housings.?
Mechanical Design Tradeoffs
Experimental Chamber DesignNOTE:MBARI design is for a 0.5 meter x 0.5 meter x 2 meter xFOCE chamber, deployed in an energetic environment and operational water depth of 15 meters.?
Experimental Chamber Assembly (swFOCE)
Enclosure and Ducting (swFOCE)
PVC Electronic Housings and End CapsNOTE:This design provides an inexpensive, large housing built with hand tools and off-the-shelf components. Heat dissipation rods are installed in end caps.?
