RACK HANDLES FOR 19" ELECTRONIC ENCLOSURES

RACK HANDLE DESCRIPTION:

Introducing a new concept in handling and securing 19" rack mounted equipment: the Piton Rack Handle. This high quality assembly provides handles and captive fasteners for your rack-mount products.

 

Piton Rack Handles have a high-strength molded design with integrated screws that secure your enclosure to any equipment rack. These handles mount outboard of the front panel space with supplied hardware: no special panel prep is required.

The Piton Rack Handle has clean styling and excellent ergonomics. It is manufactured with high grade materials and is EIA-310, RoHS, and NEBS compliant. It is well-suited for a variety of markets including Datacom, Telecom, Storage, Pro Audio, Broadcast, and Test Equipment.

  • The Piton Rack Handle gives your product a rugged, customized look, differentiating it from competitors using cheap off-the-shelf hardware.

  • The high-strength, practical design makes for an ergonomic handle capable of moving heavy, awkward equipment through production, shipping and installation.

  • This solution gives your customers stainless steel fasteners, captive to your product, simplifying rack mounting. No more lost or mismatched screws.

  • Captive fasteners are integral to the handle, eliminating the cost of press-fitting or swaging separate captive fastener assemblies.

  • Piton Rack Handles mount on the outer edges of the front panel, preserving enclosure volume and front panel space; a key benefit where rack and floor space are at a premium.

  • The product is supplied as a kit with 2 handles, 4 captive screws and 4 mounting screws: the single part number kit reduces the cost of documentation, procurement, kitting and assembly.

  • Can be used with subracks where no fixed front panel exists.

  • Because the handle works with standard EIA-310 front panel mounting slots, it can be added to existing designs and products.

  • #12, M5 and M6 captive screws available.

  • Easily replaceable, reusable and recyclable.

  • With good design-for-manufacturability, the Piton Rack Handle is available with quantity price breaks at 50, 100, and 500 kits.

RACK HANDLE DESIGN TIPS:

Crazy Strong!

240lbs: No Problem

  • Order one kit for each rack-mounted enclosure. A kit contains 2 handles, 4 handle-mounting screws and 4 captive screws.

  • See PDF data sheets for mounting hole pattern for handles. Each handle requires two countersunk thru holes.

  • If your front panel is more than .25" thick, counterbore the handle mounting holes as shown on the data sheets.

  • There are multiple captive screw lengths available. This is to accommodate your front panel thickness and allow proper mounting with any rack - regardless whether the rack has recessed captive nuts or tapped rails. See data sheets for part numbers.

  • When attaching handles, first fasten with plastite screws, then thread #10 captive screws thru handles.

  • 4U enclosures: consider using 3U handles. Layout your front panel as a 1U above a 3U and locate the handles on the lower, 3U portion. The handles will be slightly offset from the midline of your product, closer to the center of gravity.

  • For non-rackmount designs, mount handles from front with #8 or #10 machine screws

  • 3D STEP files available on request.

  • See our product development services for complete chassis design.
