asdf38 is on a distinguished road
Left Coast, could you expand a bit on epoxy encapsuation and potting process? So the product you picture has standoffs that are soldered to pads on the board that serve as your connections? Do you literally fill that box with epoxy?

Do you have a suggestion for potting epoxy? When I googled it I was flooded with possibilities and most of them seemed expensive in small quantities. Also what about the thermal properties of the encapsulation. For power applications it seems that encapsulation would be an issue.

Thanks, Chris
