A 19-inch rack is a standardized frame or enclosure for mounting multiple equipment modules. Each module has a front panel that is 19 inches (482.6 mm) wide, including edges or ears that protrude on each side which allow the module to be fastened to the rack frame with screws. The usable width for equipment is 17.5" or 444.5mm
Novexcomm products adhere to the EIA Standards. Panel lengths are all 19” (482mm) and cut in U Units of 1.75” (44.4mm). The mounting holes in the panels will match with rack rails found it EIA standard enclosures. For more information on these racks, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/19-inch_rack
All of our rack mounts are standard EIA 19" relay rack size. Radio rack panels are usually listed in U units, one U equals 1 ¾" height. You will see most of our racks are 2U, meaning they are 3 ½" high. The larger radios, like the Icom 756 and 746, are 4U or 7" high.
NovexComm provides low-cost, professional rack mounts for many popular radios, giving operators a source for off-the-shelf, low cost radio rack mount kits.
Thanks Novexcomm for your great products. I was trying to rack mount my radio equipment into my console racks and was failing miserably. Luckily, I ran across your ad and have since successfully rack mounted several units very easily. The chassis design of your system for the larger rigs moves the weight of the actual radio equipment from the front panel and transfers it to the rack through your integrated chassis shelf. This greatly helps installing, removing and working on the gear. It also reduces the rattles that come from the stresses from the weight of the gear that is supported entirely from the single panel itself. Very COOL indeed! Thanks again for being there for a guy in need.
