Media Bay Module Standoff Screw Specs?

Media Bay Module Standoff Screw Specs?


This may be a strange request but I am curious if anyone knows the specs on the standoff screws on the BCM media bay modules with amphenol connectors.

A lot of times we get the modules in with these screws removed and would like to replace them.

Tried buying some "M3 8mm+6mm" but the thread is wrong so before I keep buying various ones to determine which they are, I figured I'd try asking here.

I've attached a picture on what I am talking about.


RE: Media Bay Module Standoff Screw Specs?

Good question, You are referring to the type of screw adapter that you often see on RS232 connectors. I don't actually know what type of thread it uses.

Found some that will work.. The "head" portion is a tiny bit shorter than the original ones but they still work.

Here are the specs:

3/16" Hex Head Standoff
Zinc Finish
4-40 x 3/16" Thread Length
3/16 Head Length
