The last few weekends I made an enclosure for the power supply. It's a little bit over designed but it was nice to design something from scratch.

The enclosure has an emergency button to cut the power of the 5 and 25V line and 2 separate volt and amp meters with a cut of switch for the 5V en the 24V line.

There are some ventilation holes on the back side. 

The 24V fan is always on.

I use a small 24V to 5V DC to DC step down convertor.

The wiring of the display, the meters and the buttons.

All the components I used.

And the design files of the enclosure.

That is because you said I needed one. I liked the idea. ;-)
