Mounting BrewPi Spark 3


#1

I am trying to figure out how to mount the Brew Pi Spark 3. I bought a cutting 12x18 cutting board, which I would like to mount it to. I noticed there’s 2 holes on the back, is this for for mounting the device?

Also what is the MicroSD slot used for?


#2

MicroSD slot is currently not used. It is for potential future logging.


#3

I see in the description for the Spark 3," the 2 mounting screws on the back for mounting to a panel or to mount countersunk magnets." What size countersunk magnet and screw would work for this?


#4

I just had a strip of aluminum that I drilled holes in to match the mounting holes on the spark 3 and then mounted it onto. Be careful not the strip the included mounting screws though as they are made of rather soft metal.

These are great:

The 16mm is a good fit. If you go larger, you might need a washer. The screw head is 4.4mm.

And yes, don’t overtighten them to not strip the screw or the plastic.
