24/02/2009 Versatile and stylish desktop enclosure for standard Eurocards
The primary benefit to the user is that the same pluggable PCB or module can be mounted in either a standard subrack for 19" rack mounting use or in the LBX for desktop applications, enabling systems to be configured to suit many different applications. The largest 24HP version will accept a maximum of eight mounted horizontally individual boards. Connector carriers allow interconnection between individual boards to be made by either using standard DIN41612 connectors or a backplane. Divider kits that enable 3U and 6U boards to be mixed within the same enclosure are available; these kits also enable 160 and 220mm boards to be mixed in different sections of the housing.
The front panels can be secured either by using standard 2.5mm mounting screws or, by reversing the LBX corner mouldings, they can be captured in slots for a clean, fixing-free appearance.
