Standard I/O Panel Inserts

Modular I/O Panels Zoltech offers, as standard off-the-shelf parts, dozens of different I/O Panel Inserts that fit the pre-punched openings in the Modular I/O Rear Panels. These inserts have openings for a wide variety of common connectors. See the V-Series I/O Connector Panel Inserts data sheet for the current selection.
