1U Utility Tiles

Currently there are 2 variants of the 1U Tile. For simplification we are calling these 1UF and 1UE.

1UF Tiles - FracRack Format

This is the original format and uses the FracRack approach to the rack section. The rack is constructed using lipless rails that allow the tile panel to extend the full 1U height. It also relies on the use of thin rails to maximise the available space for components and, if needed, a PCB.
The 1UF format offers the largest space between the rails.

1UE Tiles - EuroSynth Format

This is the newer variant and is technically the correct format as it uses lipped rails and so can work with existing EuroSynth rack parts.
The available space between the rails is smaller than with 1UF Tiles and will not accept 1UF pcbs that use the full height available in a 1UF rack

Both variants occupy 1U of rack space as can be seen in the drawing below which shows the fundamental dimensions for the 2 variants.

1UX

Not a tile format but refers to the finished rack assembly. Uses standard EuroSynth lipped rails with 1UF Tiles so the overall height is greater than the conventional 1U standard.

The Power Tile offers a convenient and compact method for getting external DC power in to your system.

Two DC sockets are provided, one for connection to an external DC supply, the second for daisy-chaining to a second case to allow both to be powered from a single supply.

The Multiples Tile provides a 1-in/3-out passive expander that aides with multi-point patching. An essential utility for 3.5mm users but also a useful utility for 4mm users to reduce the height of stacked patches.


Standard models are fitted with one format of jack i.e. all 3.5mm jacks or all 4mm jacks.
For multi-format systems the [IN] jack (top left) can be of a different format.

The Cycle Tile provides 2 'patch enable/disable' circuits. Patching from an 'output' to an 'input' via one of these circuits and that patch can be enabled or disabled at the flick of the switch. Useful for when you need to quickly enable/disable a patch but don't want to play with the patch leads themelves


2 models are currently offered, one with all 3.5mm jacks and the other with all 4mm jacks.
