Interior/Exterior Adjustment Assembly

       Enclosed is an arrangement of interchangeable rear panels
to accommodate a spectrum of devices.  Final adjustment allows the
device to be flush with the exterior bezel after the product is
completely enclosed.

      The bridge box, as defined, has five different devices that go
inside common covers.  Each device has a different requirement for
the hardware mounting and location of its cable connector to the
exterior.  Hardware mounting is accomplished through an arrangement
of patterned holes 1 in a skid 2 and anchorage through use of screws
3 (only one device is shown in Fig. 1).  A secondary plate 4 on the
skid 2 encloses the device 5 enhancing EMI and EMC shielding. Each
device's unique requirements for cabling to the exterior is
accomplished through use of common rear panels 6 and 7 (two shown in
Fig. 2) with varying exterior exit as dictated by the device.
Anchorage of these panels to the base 8 is by screws from the bottom.
This provides non-visibility of the screw heads from the rear,
enhancing the non-requirement of a rear cover.

      The power supply 11 provides two tapped holes for anchorage of
the real panel to the base 8 by way of screws 9.  Two additional
tapped holes are provided in the skid 2 for additional anchorage by
way of screws 10.  The screws 9 hold the power supply 11 and the
common rear panels down to the base 8.  A third screw 12 holds the
front of the power supply.  The screws 10 ...
