AdvancedTCA Front Panel

Aluminum Extruded Panels - The Aesthetic Option

CBT Technology offers a full range of AdvancedTCA extruded aluminum front panels, RTM panels, and accessories to meet the demands of high performance communications applications. Extruded aluminum front panels provide many unique features including:

  • A ‘ridge’ on the edges of the front panel to facilitate easy installation of overlays – and to protect the overlay edges
  • Handles: Southco standard. Other handles available upon request
  • Rounded or square edges on the front surface
  • Rigidity – particularly in the area of the handle where the most stresses occur
  • Ability to customize extrusions and incorporate PB holders and aesthetic features

Extrusions are made of 6005A aluminum.
