Abrégé

An electronics module includes a housing having four sides and defining an axis extending from a front to rear of the housing. Each side defines a mating feature that engages a mating feature of another electronics module. One side defines a pin-receiving receptacle, another defines a recess extending partially through a width or a thickness of the housing; and another includes a catch mechanism. A latch is mounted within the recess and includes a body having top, bottom, front, rear, inner side, and outer side surfaces. The bottom or top surface defines an opening to a vertical channel formed in the body. A hook extends from the rear surface and secures a catch on the other module. A spring-biased pin is received within the channel and mounted within the recess such that an end of the pin extends through the opening beyond a surface of the electronics housing.
