Implicitly all that information existed already on the E05 60 Module
drawing. I have today changed this drawing to Rev.02 to incorporate these
specific dimensions. You have 28.4mm clearance to the cover flange of the
E05 62 Connector Plate, which is intruded by 3.2mm for the cover screw and
its PEM nut pressed into the flange. All other dimensions that you need are
located on the several drawings, which is why I uploaded the complete set of

Hi Dick,
For those who have extreme connector issues it might be helpful if they had
information regarding the cover attachment to the connector plate. This
information might logically be added to the connector plate drawing.
How far does the nut protrude into the module area? What is it's diameter?
What is the distance from the top of the PCB to the center of this nut
(assuming 0.062 inch PCB)? And how far might the screw reasonably be
expected to protrude into the module area?
