The connector is centered between the mounting holes. API500 stuff is centered. You can also use this connector to build dbx900 modules by chopping off the "wings" on the ends and punching holes to match that spec. dbx900 stuff is offset from center.

Pics soon!

Roger,
I think I wasnt clear about the offset.The offset you're talking about is heightwise (in the Z direction) but I was curious to know the offset between the mounting centerline and the the card centerline(in Front View).The DBX and the 500 series seem the same.

Working on a new peter purpose 525.

FPE order:

(I measured peter's carrier and front panel about a million times
before I ordered.)

Sourced some different switches other than the ones peter used as getting a Rapid
order in the US is quite hard.

Its now underway......

That looks great!

How did you create that 90-degree bend in the plain aluminum base plate? I see you had the panel pre-scored by FPE; did you still have to use a metal brake?

Thanks,

JDB.

please somebody have dimensions about " 5xx " rack to share?
I just uploaded what I have to the groupdiy Google mail account.

Wasn't that already there? Anyhow, a forum search for "500 dimensions" should produce the document (fourth/fifth search result).
