DIN rails aren’t quite common in interest initiatives, though you do see them often. However in some industries, they’re in all places. The rail is only a piece of aluminum or metal with slots to carry it to a wall or bulkhead. There are two small lips that tools like circuit breakers, energy provides, or controllers can connect simply. A typical 3D printing undertaking is a technique to mount one thing like a printer controller to DIN rails. [NotLikeALeafOnThe Wind] reveals a distinct tackle it: a magnetic holder that quickly attaches a rail to a ferrous floor.
In fact, mounting the rail is just half the equation. After that, you continue to want issues to mount on the rail. Fortunately, there’s no scarcity of designs for DIN mounts for a lot of widespread boards and modules.
There are a number of variations of the design. One has two ears that maintain the magnets. One other has an analogous design however can mount two rails. For those who can’t spare the area, one other design holds the rail however provides little or no width to the meeting. Truthfully, we puzzled if you happen to may take a little bit of rail and simply epoxy magnets to the again of it, however these definitely look nicer and provide you with a little bit of clearance, too.
