1. Epoxy plugs to end caps

Amethyst AUV Enclosure - Epoxy End Caps

Use epoxy and glue plugs to end cap´s holes. Holes in plugs should stay free for wires we will insert later.

 

2. Watertight completation with O-rings

Amethyst AUV Enclosure - Sealing

Before fitting the o-rings on the bung of end cap, apply bit of silicone grease on them to lubricate them and let the end cap plunge more easily in to acrylic tube. If you dont´d have silicon grease, you could improvise and use some greasy cream or so. When you insert end cap bung in to tube with O-rings in grooves attached, you schould see that both o-rings are leaning tight against side of acrylic tube. O-ring shoud be bit sqeezed against side of tube around their entire circumference. If they not, pull out the end cap, turn 45 degrees an put it in again. If this will not help, you should check dimensions of O-rings / acrylic tube and / or inproove your 3D printer settings for end cap parts correction print out.

 

Wires through end cap

Amethyst AUV Enclosure - Wires

Push need wires through endcap plugs and seal them with epoxy. Plugs that your project doesn´t need seal as blind by epoxy too.
