The idea is for an enclosure that has a slot on the inner sides into which the Meraki Sparky PCB can slide. Then there might be a single screw that can be inserted from the bottom in order to keep the PCB from sliding out. Next design should have:

  • the standoff extending from the top, but short enough to clear the PCB components
  • the slide-in slots should be near the bottom of the box
  • the opening should have a curved front to accommodate the angled ethernet/power connections
  • the back should have a mounting hole for the antenna
