FMEC Blank Card Description
The FMEC-BLANK card provides EMC emission control for empty FMEC slots. It also provides a way to close off the EFCA area, thus allowing air flow and convection to be maintained through the EFCA. Figure 1 shows the FMEC-BLANK card faceplate.
You have to install the BLANK FMEC in every empty FMEC slot to maintain EMC requirements of the system and proper air flow.
