MobileApp Systems Announces New Proto Armour Enclosure for Raspberry Pi B+ Systems

Share Article

With the release of the newest Raspberry Pi Model B+board, MobileApp Systems announced that they would immediately begin working on a new enclosure for the minicomputer used by students, programmers, and corporations around the world. The new enclosure units are now available for order on the company’s website and feature a variety of upgrades that give the enclosures more flexibility while maintaining the same footprint and mounting capabilities.

MobileApp Systems, a New York company specializing in the development of powerful solutions for the latest mobile platform technologies, has announced they are releasing a new model of their Proto Armour enclosures in conjunction with the release of the newest Raspberry Pi system, the Model B+. The latest Proto Armour case is made to work seamlessly with the RPi Model B+, allowing easy access to new ports and micro SD card slot.

“Our new Proto Armour case will provide the same great fit and protection that people love about our other cases,” said Tom Skwara, representative for Mobile App Systems. “We focused on making this case even more versatile for users while maintaining the footprint and mounting capabilities to make upgrading easy.”

In addition to updating the structure of their cases to allow access to new ports on the B+ system, the company changed how passive cooling will work. Many RPi B+ customers didn’t need the feature, said Skwara, and changing it allowed greater flexibility to customers who wanted to be able to plug in additional peripherals. For customers who need passive cooling, especially when over clocking the CPU, the company will be offering an add-on heatsink component tailored specifically for the Proto Armour for Raspberry Pi B+ enclosure. It will be available on their website soon.

Skwara says that his company anticipates the RPi B+ will be a big seller for the Raspberry Pi group, and wanted to get an enclosure available on their website quickly for early adopters. Previous iterations of the Raspberry Pi systems, while originally manufactured as an inexpensive computer alternative for students and educators, have become a hit with programmers and companies around the world, too.

“We’re working with several large companies who are integrating the RPi B+ into their production lines and end products,” said Skwara. “We’re excited to partner with more companies for their enclosure needs, giving them a solution that frees up their engineers to focus on other end-product design tasks.”

Mobile App Systems will continue to sell other models of their Proto Armour cases to fit older models of Raspberry Pi computers. Customers are encouraged to place their orders for the newest model soon, as demand during the preorder period in August was high.
