Answered: Custom Sensor Housing

In the college division we are allowed to use third party sensors and to save money we have been building our own sensors. We were wondering since we have been building our own sensors we would like to build custom housing to protect our sensors but we are not sure what the ruling would be on what materials we could use or if we have to use the materials allotted to us in the general build rules? If you could let us know what we can do about making custom housing for sensors we would appreciate it.



Provided that the custom housing is used solely as part of the custom sensor, it would fall under Rule 6 of Appendix F, which is quoted below. (Some text bolded for emphasis)

Thus you are not restricted in the material choice for the housings of your custom sensors.
