Often, Rane’s Decora Remote controls for HAL (e.g., DR1, DR2 or DR3 remotes and many RAD models) need to be placed in the rack room.
To mount them, get a hold of Lowell’s 19″ Punched Rack Panels – specifically, get the D9P-ID-3 model. This is a 3U panel that has nine holes for Decora devices.
NOTE: the D8P-ID-3 model does not work for any of Rane’s two-gang (or more) models. The spacing between the eight holes is not correct. Get the nine-position model.
The nine- position version provides the proper spacing for 2-gang or more DRs and RADs.
To fill in the empty and unused holes, Lowell offers the DBB-4 pack of four blanks.
