Not really -- it's a tabletop CPU/system box sold for OEM use -- in
other words a standalone unit you'd build a small system, such as a
process controller, into. It has a 2 x 2 backplane, arranged serpentine
style, so you could put up to four dual-height cards in it. It has one
gotcha -- no line-time clock.
I don't think your monitor unit was ever meant for rack mounting,
either. Apart from having no obvious mounting points for rails, the
power inlet and switch would be inside and facing the side of the rack
if the CRT were facing out the front. I expect it's a tabletop unit, or
was mounted inside something else. Which is not to say it might not
have once sat on a shelf in a rack, of course.
