These 2mm Alu Frontpanels are powdercoated like the enclosure. The top and bottom is bend 90°

You can use this a Frontpanel, or as a seperate Frontpanel with not enclosure (to make XLR Studio Patchpanels or whatever), or you can use this to fix all potentiometers and put a Frontpanel on top of this panel. (that's how the SPL mastering gear is made)

Some picture of the rearpanel..

The rearpanels are bended 90° at the top and bottom for better stability. There are threads to fix the top and bottom panel with the rearpanel.
So the rearpanel can't bend when pulling out connectors! Good! :-)

With the material thickness of 1mm every type of connector will fit. (some XLRs or SUB-D connectors don't fit on 3mm panels so this rearpanel is the best solution)

Alternatively we can make any other typ of rearpanel. Different material thickness from 2-4mm, different colours. Additional brackets will fix the 3mm rearpanel to the top and bottom cover.

Top/Bottom Panel

The top panel is 100% the same as the bottom panel. Below you can download a PDF file of the top and bottom panel.
Generally it's possible to make any holes or countersink-holes into the top or bottom panel (for fixing pcbs or parts...). But usually it's cheaper and more flexible to use the specially made "mounting rails" or "Fixation panel" for this.

Optional Parts

Mounting Rail 6,86€ +VAT

This rail can be used for a stabilisation (if needed) of the enclosure.
The top and/or bottom cover can be fixed with the front or rearpanel to get a very strong enclosure. You can even put computer monitors on top of the enclosure with no problems.
You can also use the rail to make an API500/51X Rack with a 3Z enclosure as these rails have the holes for the modules at the right position.
These rails can also be useful to fix pcbs at the inside of the enclosure so you don't need to drill holes and you can remove the bottom cover to get full access to the pcb without unscrewing the pcb.


90° Bracket 1,78€ +VAT/each bracket


These brackets can be fixed at the top and/or the rearpanel. These brackets can make the enclosure even stronger because of the additional connection between the front/rear panel with the enclosure top/bottom cover.

Info: Our standard rearpanels already has threads to fix the top and bottom cover with the rearpanel.
These brackets can be used to fix the frontpanel with the top/bottom cover, or if you want to have a 3mm rearpanel which comes without the possibilty to fix the 3mm rearpanel with the top/bottom cover... then you can add these brackets.


90° Brackets to fix the rearpanel within the enclosure

With these brackets you can fix the rearpanel to any position you want at the inside of the enclosure.
So the additional panel can be used to fix transformer, tube sockets, pcbs, potentiometers or switches which can't or shouldn't be fixed to the frontpanel.
(example: to fix Urei 1176 switches or rotary switches (for Neve 1081/1073...)



Transfomer mounting bracket

 

This bracket can be used to fix toroid transformer into the enclosure without drilling holes into the bottom of the panel.
The bracket will be fixed into the existing slots at the side panels.



Fixation Panel  13,32€+VAT

This is an additional "bottom" panel which can be fixed right above the enclosure bottom .

Advantages:

  • No need to drill in the real bottom panel
  • No need to drill precisely as this panel is not visible in the end
  • No visible screws from the outside which can scratch the gear below this unit
  • Additional Shielding
  • You can even start assembling the pcbs before ordering the enclosure
  • Free area at the front and rear for components

 


If you're about to design your own pcb then you can use the existing screws (which fixes the bottom panel to the side panels) to fix your pcbs.

which NEVE uses since dacades.
