Dot-Ten(TM) Eurocard Shielded front panels incorporate injector/ejector handles that conform to IEEE 11010.10, as specified in VME64 Extensions, Compact PCI, and other Eurocard modules. The handles provide enough leverage to overcome the insertion/extraction forces of the connectors, which can reach up to 170 lbs. Other handle features: an alignment pin built into the handle bracket, a provision for a microswitch to use in live insertion systems, and a latching mechanism that ensures board retention in high shock and vibration environments. The front panels also come complete with an EMC gasket for card cages and enclosures requiring EMI/RFI attenuation.
