 Rack Frames
Rack frames providing mounting in an industry-standard 19" rack cabinet. When building a rack frame synthesizer, a power supply and DC cable harness must be mounted in the user-supplied cabinet behind the panel. On rack systems, it is UP TO YOU to enclose the power system and prevent access to dangerous voltages!
