    Heater Meter case dimensions

    Can someone tell me the dimensions of the case for the v4.3 HM?

    https://store.heatermeter.com/collec...nt=31245653830

    Mostly trying to confirm the depth.

    It's all on the way, but I just decided on a modification for a smoker build in progress and I need this dimension.

    Thanks a bunch for the help!

    It is currently 99.815 x 101.25 x 35.4mm for the 4.3 Pi3 Thermocouple case. The buttons are proud of the top surface though by a few millimeters (<7.5mm).
    I'm that HeaterMeter guy what ruins everybody's free time.

    HUGE help, Bryan. Thanks a bunch. I got this while we were out hacking away. Sounds like my plan will work out just fine!

    Oops I just realized that dimension doesn't take into account the little bulge where the Pi connectors are. That adds 1.7mm, so 101.515x101.25x35.4mm

    All good, my man. Depth was the main concern. I'm making a recess for it to fit in. I think the plan is to be 8" x 8" x 2" or, in mm, 203.2 x 203.2 x 50.8 mm. That gives enough space to add some sort of backing to fix the case in to the recess and still not have it stick out past the the opening.

    Thanks again for the info.

    Ummmm..... I'll bet you're gonna end up wanting it larger, at least deeper. I can measure the pocket I put in my double pan GF later this weekend. The front opening is square (as wide as I could get it between 2 frame members,) and at least 4" deep. Personally, I sure wouldn't want it any shallower, and wider wouldn't have been undesirable either.

    Think so? Plan is to put a hood over the top of the recess, so if it sits close to flush with the front of the recess, I'm good with that. I just don't want it poking out.

    In descending order, I want wider, deeper, shorter. 2" on each side IMO is barely enough for the cabling. Mine sits a little canted in a cradle because it's really not wide enough to sit square with the front. And about the only reason I'd want a hood over the top would be so I could take a sheet of clear high temp plastic and mag mount it up under the hood to keep weather out (and I've ran mine down to -6 F and below.)

    Hood will be only for cooking in the rain. If it's a windy storm, I just won't run the controller. I'll have a hood for the blower/damper, too.

    Will consider making it deeper. Might use 1" tubing, then offset it behind the frame tubing. Will gain an extra two inches of width that way.

    I appreciate the input on this design, sir. Very helpful before we start modding.

    I'll get dimensions and maybe a couple of pics tomorrow morning when I fire it up.

    What style of smoker are you building?
