    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, 4002D, or 4002E Power Supplies is furnished by the precision-stamped, plated-steel, connector mounting plate.

    The ORTEC 4001A Bin distributes all dc and ac power levels from the power supply to the module connectors through a wiring harness. The 4001C 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 Bin is recommended for use with the higher-current power supplies (the 4002D and 4002E).

    The 4001A and 4001C NIM Bins can be ordered as separate bins for use with existing power supplies, or ordered assembled with the appropriate ORTEC NIM bin power supply. See the Ordering Information for details. The NIM bins incorporate the necessary brackets for rack mounting.

    4001A
    Module Connectors
    12 each as specified by DOE/ER-0457T.
    Installed Wiring All connectors wired in parallel for +12 V, –12 V, +24 V, –24 V, +6 V, –6 V, high-quality ground, power-return ground, and 117 V ac, in accordance with DOE/ER-0457T pin assignments. An interface connector is supplied as required by DOE/ER-0457T for connecting control and power supply.
    Control Panel A control panel with On/Off switch, power-indicating lamp, and thermal warning lamp for mating power supply. The thermal warning lamp is illuminated when the operating temperature approaches the design limit. Voltage test points are provided for convenient monitoring of the power supply outputs.
    Construction Aluminum alloy side plates with nickel-chromium-plated handles on front-panel mounting flanges. Top and bottom members are high-tensile steel rod weldments, nickel plated, containing module guides. Rear connector plate is steel, cadmium plated.
