Hooking It All Together

For the ongoing mobile PT rig...

I've been trying to figure out how I want to arrange things in flight cases.

I could theoretically put everything in one rack, provided it's the size of a refrigerator, but something tells me that my back would later regret it. So I've been thinking about splitting things up: One rack with pre's, another with converters and outboard, etc.

Now I just have to figure out how to hook things together in some reasonable amount of time. ADC has some preconfigured patchbays that come out in ELCO connectors. I figure I could have one of those on the outs of the Pre rack, which would hook to the ins of the converter rack, and so on.

Does this sound like the way to go? Any other suggestions?
