Title: Wiremap/Loopback Adapter Case
Post by: reinhj on October 31, 2016, 07:06:27 PM
Ahy plans to put the wiremap adapter in a plastic shell/case (similar to couplers) instead of the tape that's currently wrapping it?

We actually produced cases, but due to delays in the production process, they couldn't go out with all the orders at the start of sales. We'll offer them in our shop for a small price soon.

That would be great, because the color changes already to blue (?) beneath the white after a few days, not a problem functionality-wise, but it shouldn't happen that fast either.

I hope you can offer some kind of silicone skin or similar bumper style cover for the PE unit as well per my other feature suggestion.  Would ruggedize  the unit quite a bit and prevent it from sliding off of smooth rack equipment, etc. Thanks.

This, just this. Yesterday I almost dropped it, and a rugged rubber case would be just beyond awesome especially if it is used in a rough environment where you have to change ports often and a drop could happen easily.

Few others also suggested that. We'll look into that as well, to offer some kind of protective case for Pockethernet.

Will this be for sale now that a new batch is for sale?

Another batch for sale.
Any news on this?

Hi Sergio. Do you refer to the original topic (plastic case for the wiremap adapter)? All wiremap adapaters now come in one.

I was referring to the possibility of purchasing one of these new cases seperately for those who purchased the wiremap adapter without it (with the tape around it)

Ditto. I'd like to get one of the newer ones too.

I'd be interested in a case as well. In an otherwise professionally looking device, the new adapter looks great and much more durable. I'd love the same :)

Is there any possibility to purchase the new shell?

I would love a case.  As an early supporter of your product I find it insane that this isn't being offered for us.

any progress to the addon-case4adapter topic or even a roadmap??

Medium wall silicone rubber tubing, cut to length, would probably do the job.
I don't have mine to hand but I'd guess that it would be in the 50~60mm internal diameter range.

What I ended up doing was this:

Bought these from Amazon.  Can cozies for the Red Bull sized cans (I don't drink that crap BTW.)  Anyhow, they fit the Pockethernet perfectly if you trim them shorter. Then you have a nice protective case.

Re. the bumper - it's since a long time on our roadmap, but right now our priorities are in the development of the unit and the company. It might come soon, it might take a while - I can't really give a good estimate of when we will produce one.

Re. terminator casings - we're selling the terminators with a new casing separately here: https://pockethernet.com/store/2/pockethernet-terminator (Please note they have the same ID as the original terminator that came with the unit)
In case you have an old terminator with the white heat shrink tubing and absolutely want the new casing - please write me about it, so I can see if we can work something out. Jboxtel AT pockethernet
