The module handles lock mezzanine cards securely in place when closed, and provide for automatic microswitch disengagement when unlatched. Light pipe brackets identify the operating status of the module and its mating microswitch through the use of color-coded status LEDs visible from the front of the module faceplate.

  • Easy snap-in installation on the faceplate saves time during manufacture and module insertion
  • Die-cast module handles with spring-loaded cams engage modules securely, resist vibration, and provide long-lasting durability
  • Ergonomic design provides good grip for disengaging module handle and removing module from carrier chassis
  • Operating the module handle automatically disengages the microswitch in order to allow for a graceful power-down during hot-swapping
  • Module handle provides a solid feel at three distinct detent points to let users know whether microswitch is actuated or released and the module is latched or unlatched
  • Die-cast light-pipe housings provide light path separation for multiple color-coded LEDs to show operating status
  • Module handles and light pipe housings are RoHS compliant

Available Options

  • Module handles are available in different formats to fit the three standard module faceplate configurations – compact, mid-size, and full-size
  • Flush-style AMC Module Handles minimize protrusion on the faceplate for better aesthetics and to prevent snagging of cables
  • Custom-color handles are available for enhanced aesthetics or color-coded identification
  • Custom light pipe and module handle designs are also available
