Title: DIN-rail for Duple Interface ?
Post by: Hillmann on December 17, 2011, 04:32:47 AM
Hi

Is it possible to get a DIN-rail mounting accessory for the Duple interface ?

And/Or are there other ways to do a fixed installation.

Best Regards
Hilmann

hi Hillmann,

I sometimes had to prepare a Duple or Elite for a DIN rail mounting. I ordered "DIN rail holder TSH 35" from Bopla (Product no. 22035000).

This adapter is – amongst others – available from:
Farnell / Newark (order code 4189991)
Conrad (order code 539775 – 89)
Distrelec (order code 300060)

Then I drilled 2 holes of 2,4mm diameter in the bottom of the Duple and tapped a M3 thread in them. Then mount the holder with short M3 bolts so they don't touch the PCB inside the box.

I have attached an image of the result.

best regards,
Maarten

Good question. No our - manufacturer - warranty will not be voided. Please check with the distributor you bought the unit from for their guidelines.

But do the modification with care:
- remove the PCB from the enclosure before drilling holes
- really make sure your screws are short enough not to touch the PCB
