Recently I bought some PCI network cards to link all my computers. They are all ultra low profile cards and I thought it would be too much of a problem to locate a supplier/manufacturer of the standard J-shape metal plates. However, I don't know what the technical name of the J-shape plate is - (the bit that you screw to your computer chassis), which is hindering my search.
Anyone know what it's called? And even better where I can obtain them?
No, a blanking plate is the blank plate that you use on the chassis when you have no card on that slot. Although I did wonder if I could fabricate a substitute from blanking plates
I want the plate that is attached to the PCI card by means of two M3 screws, which you secure the card to the chassis. It would need to have three holes for the LEDs and a square hole for the RJ plug. Although I can easily put the holes where there should be, if I can only get them unholed. Looking at my other PCI cards (DSL modem, analogue modem, video card etc.)- it would appear to be stainless steel
