The rack is available to be installed on ships or structures. They are used to store the armor and facilitate donning and maintenance.
The armor storage module creates a niche that the wearer steps into. It consists of several industrial looking mechanical arms and has places where each limb is stored near each arm. There is a light source located at the top that comes one when power is applied. There is a pedestal that retracts that is black to make it easy to spot for removing the armor.
To don the armor in the rack the wearer steps onto a pedestal and into the torso facing the rack. The torso is secured by a mechanical arm on either side. The rack then lifts the torso into position and the user is rotated. Once the wearer is facing outward the rack aligns and installs the specified backpack. The armor initiates power up.
The pedestal then retracts and the wearer is held up by the operational torso. The rack then brings the leg units into position for the wearer to insert their legs. The legs are then secured and close around the limbs. The arm units are then brought so the wearer can insert their arms. The arms are then connected and close.
The wearer is then lowered to the floor and released. Their helmet is then brought to where the wearer can grab it and put it on.
To remove the armor the order is reversed.
