A 1.6mm thick Dual VCA front panel - 5U high, 1U wide (nominal 8.75 x 1.75") made from a semi-rigid plastic material laser engraved to give a hard wearing surface. As a material, it is not suitable for being used without some form of rigid backing material (see below).
We can offer this front panel in a choice of 2 colours:
- White artwork on a black background
- Black artwork on a brushed aluminium effect background
We find that when using our panel mounting components such as pots and sockets, you can mount this panel to a rigid backboard of up to 3mm thick. The backboard can be plywood or Aluminium (ideally used 6082T6 or 5251 H22 grades as these are 'stiffer' than low grade 1050 types) for example and the panel component fixings will hold the two layers together. If you use a 3mm thick backboard, it does not leave enough thread length to use MFOS PCB mounting brackets but we have our own solution to this - Module Framework. 3mm Acrylic does give reasonable results but we felt it needed to be more rigid to meet our own expectations. Our solution was to use a 3mm Acrylic backboard with an integral PCB mounting frame. This gives a very rigid panel with a simple means of mounting the PCB and routing the panel wiring.
Each panel is supplied ready engraved, cut to size with all holes cut out. The cut-outs suit the panel components we provide so check these out if you are using your own bits to ensure the diameters are suitable. We are can provide different size cut-outs on request although there will be an additional nominal charge to cover the extra labour time.

You are free to use our artwork for your own personal use (not commercial use without conditional approval first), to help out in this regard you can down load a pdf version below which is unlocked and editable.
