That does not sound fine.

What type of box?  BA23?  BA11-M?  BA11-N?  You said "11/23+" which
could easily be a BA23, but it's not a guarantee.

In particular I ask because I'm sifting through a pile of DEC Qbus
backplane and PSU assemblies for, I think, a BA11-M, and these have
two PSU modules, one that takes in mains and provides +5V for the
backplane, then a smaller board that taps two cables off the main PSU
and provides +12V and -12V.  Both of these bolt down to a common
mounting bracket and have to be removed as a pair then each unit can
be removed from that.  The other Qbus supplies I have worked with are
single-unit affairs.

Any sort of Hxxx number you can find would be most illuminating.
