The ComNet series of DIN-Rail mount adaptor plate kits are ideal for mounting ComNet modules to a standard 35mm DIN-Rail mounting channel. A special adaptor plate assembly is also available for mounting DIN-Rail mountable managed Ethernet switches or other equipment within a standard 19-inch equipment cabinet.
DIN-Rail mounting is widely used within the industrial control and ITS markets for mounting electronic and electrical hardware within an equipment cabinet, and it affords significant ease of installation, greater mounting density, and neatness/good housekeeping within spaces having limited area. For those applications where it is desired to mount ComNet shelf-mount products on an existing DIN-Rail, two different standard DIN-Rail adaptor plates are offered:
The ComNet module is simply affixed onto the appropriate DIN-Rail adaptor plate with the mounting hardware provided with each plate. The aluminum plate is fabricated with several sets of no. 6-32 PEM nut fasteners that allow the module to be mounted on the plate in either the vertical or horizontal axis, providing considerable flexibility in module mounting and installation. The complete assembly is then clipped directly onto any standard 35mm DIN-Rail. Two no. 6-32 × 3/8" machine screws are included as part of this kit for mounting one module onto the adaptor plate.
