(Preemptive apology if this is the wrong place to ask; pointers to the right place appreciated)
I've thrown together a device using a Raspberry-pi, touchscreen (plugs into pi) and small monitor type thing which has its own power cord and brick. I've for the time placed everything into a small radio shack project box.
Right now, there is an extension cord with 2 outlets on it that run into the box which the pi and other device plug in to. The idea is that there is only 1 cord that needs to be plugged in for power; would much prefer if there weren't multiple power cabled needed.
This device is not so much to sell for now, but as an adjunct to an existing (very small; read: no budget) business. I have no idea where to go from here. Several google searches for "selling electronic device" etc have provided no help.
I'm trying to determine if there are regulatory or other regulations that this would fall into. FCC? UL? CE?
NB: I'm in the US with no immediate plans to use the device overseas.
Where would be a good place to ask for details? If the answer is lawyer up, what kind of lawyer should I look to talk to?
Also, are there resources I could look to to try and find a better way to power the devices? The Pi is powered via mini-usb and a transformer that came with it (think iDevice power brick). The block did not fit into the project box as it was, so I had to disassemble it. This makes me nervous because fire. What would be the recommended way to break out power from a single cable from wall to multiple devices?
