When a standard rear panel with a combination of standard and custom I/O Panel Inserts won't do the job,
then it is time to consider a Custom Rear Panel. A Custom Rear Panel for a standard Zoltech chassis
starts with a standard blank panel to which we add the openings and nomenclature required by the specific
application. Any collection of openings and labels can be provided.
While all of the examples shown have our standard clear Zinc plating and use black epoxy ink for the silkscreened labels, any surface finish and nomenclature color can be provided. A few examples of Custom Rear Panels are shown here:
This relatively simple rear panel is 5" high. Starting with a standard "power input only" (line filter
and fuse holder openings) rear panel, we added only openings for two 50-line micro-ribbon connectors.
No labels were required.|
This 5" high rear panel has openings for 16 DB25 connectors. Per customer requirements, only 12 of the
openings are labelled.|
Here is a 7"H Custom Rear Panel. It has a variety of openings including 9, 15 and 25-pin D-connectors, D-holes
for BNC and SMA connectors and one opening for a flanged cylindrical connector (in addition to the standard
line filter and fuse holder for AC power input). All of the I/O connector openings are labelled. Notice the
line work to group connectors functionally. |
Here is another 7" H Custom Rear Panel with a variety of openings. This panel has a complex
signal distribution PCB mounted on the inside. The panel can be seen fully assembled, inside
and out, in the description of the Full-Custom Chassis: "Airborne Test Equiment". On this panel, all of the
connectors, including the AC input connectors, are labelled. |
This 10.5" H panel has many DB25 connector openings as well as a DA15, openings for a fiber-optic repeater
and a D-Size I/O Panel Insert opening. This example shows that our Modular I/O Panel Inserts can be combined
with custom openings for even more flexibility. Most, but not all, of the fixed connector openings are labelled.|
Another example of a 10.5" H custom rear panel. This one has D-type and cylindrical connector openings.
All of the I/O connector openings are labelled. |
