To Do:
Shown is the panel as supplied by HISPA. (This was an earlier production model - newer units now have a better mounting)
This panel is mounted by bolts that are between the DZUS openings. The DZUS openings are also off by 1/16".
The height of the panel is about right but a sub-panel is needed for correctly mounting this panel. (NOTE - the newer HISPA panel now includes the sub panels)

The challenge is to make a unit of the correct size that fits between the rails with the correctly positioned mounting holes.

  • Get 4 DZUS replica bolts (PC Flights and Sismo both supply them).
  • Fabricate new acrylic backboard.
  • Fabricate 1 new circuit board.
    This board mounts the backlight LEDs as well as the external connections to the lights and pushbuttons.
  • Solder LEDs, resistors, and connectors to this board.
  • Drill 2 holes in the front panel, sub panel, and circuit board. These holes are used to couple all 3 boards together.
  • Trim the 2 ends from the front panel since there is no way to adjust the slots for the proper mounting dimensions without looking rather strange. Also remember that the actual panel seems to be a metal plate without any backlighting, just a printed label.
  • Bolt the circuit board to the front and sub panels through 2-20 mm spacers.
