The 4001A -Pand 4001C-P NIM Bins accommodate any equipment modules that have been manufactured to NIM standards as defined in DOE/ER-0457T. The bins are constructed of wire-form grids to ensure unimpeded ventilation for the instruments operated in the enclosure. The adjustment-free module guides are superior to the requirements specified in DOE/ER-0457T. These hardened steel guides feature generous openings and, because of their highly-polished nickel plating, offer a low friction coefficient. Aluminum alloy side plates
are precision-formed and protected with a painted finish. Secure mounting for the 4002A-P, 4002D-P Power Supplies is furnished by the precision-stamped, plated-steel, connector mounting plate.
The 4001A-P Bin distributes all dc and ac power levels from the power supply to the module connectors through a wiring harness. The 4001C-P Bin distributes the power through heavy-duty copper bus bars, wire, and a printed wiring board (PWB), ensuring a uniform
voltage output to even high-power modules. The 4001C-P Bin is recommended for use with the higher-current power supplies (the 4002D-P).
The 4001A-P and 4001C-P NIM Bins can be ordered as separate bins for use with existing power supplies, or ordered assembled with the appropriate NIM bin power supply. See the Ordering Information for details. The NIM bins incorporate the necessary brackets for rack mounting.
