I've only ever used 'backplane' for this.

Subject: Backpan or backplane?

I'm working on a user manual for a SCADA-driven programmable logic controller (PLC). The unit accepts add-on cards, much like a desktop personal computer.

Referring to the contextual samples below, my question pertains to the use of "backpan" vs. "backplane." I think it's the latter, and can find online support for this. The engineer who designed this unit, and its predecessors, thinks it's the former. I can find no definition for this, nor online support.

- These terminal boards provide excellent lightning/surge protection and
alleviate the need to install discrete interposing devices to the enclosure
*backpan*.

- <Model number> Card Chassis
<Company name> 5 slot card chassis, including *backplane*: 1lb 3.5oz.
( 552g )
<Company name> 12 slot card chassis, including *backplane*:


What's your take?

Thanks
