Data logger – Step 4 – Assembly and test

The series continues this time with the implementation of the various elements in a box then a life-size on a motorcycle test.


Now that could see How to use the different components and implement the software part to save our data, It is time to engage in the “packaging” 🙂

I recovered the box a USB converter – HDMI which is be neither too large and especially not too high for taking to the wind because my main use (or even exclusive) will be on a motorcycle.

For fixing, I used a plastic strap which contains 10 magnets. I cut it into 5 equal parts that I pasted (glue gun and glue strong) at the corners of the box over a piece at the centre.

Finally before putting everything I Redid the wiring on my breadboard for not having big cables everywhere and also to have more room if I want to add sensors or a screen.

I'll let you look at the pictures.

Do not hesitate to share your comments or ideas if you imagine another way to assemble the set.

    Then once again… Yeah !!! 😉
    For packaging, I submit you an idea, because my side also I have the same problem… : should you can find a way to make a box profiled, with the same principle of magnets for fixation. By profiled, I hear “aerodynamics”, with for example a thermoforming (If you know modellers or modelers) Alternatively the plexi worked. Thus, the box could settle in a manner “own” on the tank of the motorcycle for example.
    For my part, This is something that I can't do and I'm looking for where I could cut out of plexi laser to adapt it to my (and future) project(s) ; because the pros are doing, but for a non expected to price at my level and to my home, y' has nothing ! :'(

    Otherwise, hâte de voir tes futurs projets 😉

    • Exactly what I'm looking for ! Make a plan to have a box custom ca would be top. But or … ? On va se cotiser 🙂

    Why let the components and cables on the breadboard, you would gain from the square by a PCB (custom or with a plate of prototyping soldering). For the box, You can create a 3D model and then do print by an acquaintance or a service like Sculpteo..

    • For the Platinum I tried but I messed up the mounting. Dans un premier temps j’étais trop pressé de tester 🙂 Mais par la suite je vais retenter. However I didn't Sculpteo. Thank you for the pipe !

        You are welcome ! Good luck for your future projects

  • Hello chris,
    I can realize you the box if you desired… I have everything what should!
    SolidWorks, am responsible for ca and I have sub tratants that make me of the protos plexi…and makes me my guards for my special machines… (see
    Nice day
