National Instrument Multibus card 604 and 614 4-slot cage/backplanes.Two of these are 604 models with four P1 slots, terminated at one end and with a male Multibus connector at the other. One is the 614 model which replaces the terminator with a FEMALE Multibus connector, so it extends the 604.
Vector brand CCF-13 card cages, will hold STDbus cards, possibly others if user-modified. CCF-13 card cages areequivalent to today's Vector brand CCA13M/90 cage with metal card guides.

Box is slightly larger. Cage holds 21 cards in metal slots 3/4" apart. Supports 4.5" x 6.5" circuit boards such as STDbus cards (photo) or classic Vector 3662A6 or 3662-9 with 44 pin edge connectors. Backplane not included. $49 plus shipping each, shipped in original box.
This photo shows a similar cage, with a horizontal door, for 19-inch rack mounting and about the same dimensions as the Vector cage above. There's 11 slot guides, more could be added.
