I’m going to preface this by stating that I am not an electrical engineer… Modifying electronic devices & removing enclosures to expose live conductors is dangerous. Know the risks! I wouldn’t plug this in without an rcd or similar device being between the mm & your source of mains electricity.
The main issue there will be your ac terminals. There are iec standards which tell you the correct clearance required, based on a whole range of parameters. I’m not qualified to give you an actual distance, but if it was me then I’d be looking to do at least the following:
Use some kind of ‘stand off’ to physically stop the bottom of your board from touching the metal case. Think of the type of standoff you would use on a motherboard for example. Thesr can be fitted to the corners of your board.
Use a thicker, solid insulation… That sheeting you’ve shown would be easily punctured by a sharp bit of solder at the bottom of your board. I’d use a solid piece of plastic underneath it as well (got any old plastic lids from a takeaway container?)
Finally as you’ve cracked open the case of your monitor consider if there is a chance that you now have metallic elements which could (under fault conditions) cause a shock if touched. Is the chassis earthed?
@strawberry-3.141 Hi. This is exactly what I need. However, I dont know how to proceed with the information. Yes, I made the .css and .js file and put them in a new folder inside the module folder, but how do I then “activate” this? Could someone be so kind and explain step by step how to make this work?
Sorry for not knowing this I presume is quite basic, but so far I only installed ready made modules :)
A kind of film, which give more funtion on glass, this film may make the glass get instant privacy with click a button, also the glass screen can be applied as project screen with this film. The film is called: smart window film
I removed the speaker from it’s body and screw big holes in my mirror. The speaker also got a physical volume control. Not really good to hear music, but for alexa and the podcast module it will be absolutely enough.
The Audio adapter works out of the box for microphone. To enable speaker port u need to select it in raspberry as standard port.
My problem with it was that I didn’t want to have the brick of it out side the case. Or 3 foot of wire looped inside but I’ll have to cut it to add the step down anyway. So I may as well try it that way first. But I also didn’t know if it was big enough for both To run off of.
