German term or phrase: Erweiterungsblende
From a parts list for access control systems. This is under the PC + peripeherals section under the description for an Arcnet card:

Außerdem ist eine Erweiterungsblende mit COM 6 serieller und LPT 2 paralleler Schnittstelle enthalten.

Is this just an expansion port? Or is there a more specific meaning for Blende? I can only find it in a photographic context.

Many thanks.
