Gateworks sells a variety of enclosures on their online shop seen here: Gateworks Online Shop - Enclosures

Indoor Venice and Ventana Enclosures

Installation Instructions

  • Heatsink
    • The enclosures are designed to heatsink the processor on the SBC to the metal enclosure for better heat dissipation. This is optional and a choice of the customer. The enclosure is supplied with a solid aluminum block. To use this, remove any heatsink currently on the processor (heatsink removal instructions) and replace with the aluminum block heatsink as shown in the picture below:
  • Mounting SBC
    • Remove front plate of enclosure and pull out bottom plate that has standoffs on it.
    • Place the board 'upside down' on the standoffs and screw in 4 screws as shown below
    • Remove front plate of enclosure and slide in bottom plate and board as shown below:
    • Re-attach front plate and see the final product:

Din Rail Clip

The Ventana, Newport, and Venice Indoor enclosures can be fitted with a DIN Rail clip.

Two holes have been slightly punched to allow for customer drilling.

Din Rail Clip: GW10092

Screws to mount to enclosure are DIN74-Am4 which means a 90Deg countersink, with 4mm Metric screw. These can be seen here: Example Screw

Drill bit size: 11/64th or #18 drill bit

Newport Indoor Enclosures

  • The Newport Indoor Enclosures are built slightly taller to accomodate the fansink that is on the Newport SBCs. Additionally the side plates have holes for venting / cooling.

All Newport enclosures can be seen: Gateworks Newport Enclosures

Waterproof (IP6x) & Hazardous Enclosures / Third Party Enclosures

Abtech manufactures off the shelf enclosures that can be used in outdoor and hazardous locations.

Amphenol LTW is a good source for IP rated outdoor connectors. See link here:

Labels & Customizing

Gateworks understands there are times when a custom labeled enclosure is needed.

The following options exist:

  • Remove the top plate that shows the Gateworks logo and flip it around so the back side shows and the Gateworks logo can't be seen
  • Have a custom made label with adhesive backing custom made and place on top of the Gateworks logo (read more below)
  • Contact Gateworks Sales Team directly to have a custom enclosure made with your company logo. This usually requires a minimum of at least 100 pieces and will require a setup fee, typically starting around $450 but could vary.

Custom Adhesive Label

There are scenarios where a label / sticker can be applied to the standard Gateworks indoor enclosures for company branding.

In the past, Gateworks customers have used labels with the following properties:

  • Label Material: Textured Polycarbonate Laminate - scratch resistant, scuff resistance and UV resistance.
  • Adhesive: Permanent Adhesive
  • Thickness: 6mil (.006 inch) total
  • Corners: Square, NON-Rounded
  • Size: Measured to fit on top panel of enclosures. Size will vary depending on enclosure size, taken into account the corner pieces.
