I want to introduce a new project of me. RasPiBox Zero Lite is an enclosure set especially for the Raspberry Pi Zero. You can mount a PiZero and if needed some additional parts to an control cabinet with this kit.

On the following pages you will find a detailed description about the assembly of the RasPiBox Zero Lite kit.

Please visit our project website for detailed information:
