CUBE and Acorn systems are standardised on the Eurocard arrangement of printed circuit cards, and on the Vero KM6 rack system in particular, using a 1" pitch between cards. In this section, the parts that make up racking systems are described and listed. Note that front panels appear on page 3.15.
Cards are accommodated by identical top and bottom card guides which snap into the rails of the subrack. Disk modules use four identical module guides (two top and two bottom). The same arrangement using the same guides is true both of the subrack unit which fits into the Eurorack enclosures, and of the caseframe unit.

Integrated card frame and enclosure used by us for Eurocard systems. They are constructed from aluminium and black vinyl covered steel. Our backplanes are on a 1" pitch, so the maximum number of cards that can be accomodated in the three sizes are 8, 12 and 16, but the maximum number of slots on a backplane is 14. There is space available for other equipment (eg. a power supply) behind the backplane. This space is shown below as the usable depth, less the 200 mm approx required by the Eurocards and backplane.
