MegaRail Family

Given the interest I received for the MegaRail 80 and MegaRail Z, I decided to add a few more members to the family of profiles.

MegaRail FamilyShown from left to right are MegaRail 320 (only partially visible), MegaRail 160, MegaRail 80, MakerSlide (shown for scale), MegaRail 40, MegaRail 20 and MegaRail 10.  For simplicity, except for MakerSlide, all profiles are scaled versions of each other.  For instance, MegaRail 80 has screw ports that take self-tapping M6 screws; MegaRail 10 takes self-tapping M0.75 screws.  MegaRail 80 weighs about 3.3 kg per metre, MegaRail 320 weighs about 53 kg per metre and is available in 2,400 mm, 4,000 mm, 6,000 mm and 8,000 mm lengths (same as MegaRail 80, only scaled up, for simplicity).

  1. Hello,

    Also adding a PCB slot to the new megarail 40 would make me an immediate customer 🙂 This format is also very interesting as an electronic housing for small projects.

    • The final MegaRail 80 will have two PCB slots, spaced so that you can insert a sandwich of two PCBs connected with ordinary 0.1″-pitch male + female headers. Apparently, it makes no difference to the price, so why not.
