Ruggedized FeatherWing?

Does anyone know if the FeatherWing relay board is (made) available in a rugged version for outside use?

Off course we will not use it in a rainy outside environment, but when used in an outside enclosure, humidity could play a role in failure over time.
Would be nice if such could be made available as it would make it a nice low voltage input and powered Solid State relay for outdoor use.

(Our industrial application is to control barriers, bollards and electrical controlled fences to open parking areas by recognition of license plates.)

Many thanks in advance,

Best regards,

We do not have a ruggedized version. Since it is designed to be used as modular component in the Feather system, it is generally more practical to seal the completed circuit into a weatherproof enclosure with any external connections protected by cable-glands.

Thank you for your quick answer. That solution is second best for us, as our system integrators or installers will need to do that.
We were hoping maybe some of your customers might have ruggidized it, but if we or third parties would be doing that, we will inform you about it.
