Panel cut out dimensions for Digital Multi Control Panel GX

I am prefabricating a panel that will cover an existing hole. Planning to use this panel to mount the Digital Multi Control Panel GX that I have ordered. Have searched everywhere for the cut out dimensions but cant find them. Can only find the outer dimensions but not the needed cut out dimensions for the Digital Multi Control Panel GX.

Where can I find the panel cut out dimensions for the Digital Multi Control Panel GX?

Maybe I am not understanding the dimension drawing in the link.


Had been looking at that drawing before I posted. This drawing is clearly showing the outer dimensions and where to put the drill holes. But I cannot figure out the cut-out dimensions for the hole in the panel based on this drawing.

Oh, sorry.

The opening size is 5mm smaller than the four fixing holes, and it is fine. In fact, the panel is attached with a steel fixing piece, as long as the circuit board can pass, it does not need to be too precise.

Did you get the cutout dimensions? I am in the same spot. Unit is on the way and I would like to have the cutout in place.

Does anybody know the size of fastener for the four corners? None of the diagrams mention this, they just give the diameter of the hole in the plastic into which the threaded insert is placed.



Thanks,


Allan.
