Abstract

The following describes a design for a logic cage to accept a multiplicity of covered logic cards (books) along with options available in construction. (Image Omitted) Referring to Fig. 1, a logic cage is constructed of top and bottom halves 1 and 6 which are fastened with screws 4 to side plates 5 to form a four sided box. Side plates 5 are of sheet metal construction and are designed to accurately space top and bottom halves 1 and 6 apart when fastened. Top and bottom halves 1 and 6 are of die cast metal construction although sheet metal or conductive or plated plastic may be used as alternatives.
