Radion PSU’s

Had a bit of a DIY attack today…

Been wondering where to locate the Radion power supply units for the long term.

The most likely location candidate being the gap down the left hand side of the aquarium. A narrow and tricky area to work with, but when talking about a piece of equipment that will have very little manual intervention, it seems ideal to try and get the PSU’s set up down there. After all they will be safe and should be out the way of any significant water contamination.

A few measurements and i sourced some lengths of pine that were hanging around and some brackets…

From the bits of wood ill construct a simple frame that the brackets will then mount to and the PSU’s will have something to sit on…

I cut two lengths, the intention is the frame will sit with the design of the cabinet…

A test of the frame and an idea of the intention…

My woodwork skills leave a lot to be desired! But as this is out the way and wont really ever be seen again i thought why not give it a go!

Plenty of PVA into the mix!

The partially complete frame, using pine wasn't such a good idea as it split quite easily…

The frame resting in the cabinet, this is just for visual reference of course, it will be on the other side hidden away. Need some screws for the brackets, and will possibly paint it, I've also had the thought to add the mains electrics to the frame and then run a single plug from it. Will see how it goes…
