The solutions are dedicated to:
- server rooms where the application of the large-scale fire suppressing system embracing the entire surface of the room is impossible; server rack cabinets – constructed pursuant to an increased air-tightness standard (IP55) – fitted with an attached ventilator providing optimal cooling of the devices inside the cabinet and with AGC Master Extinguishing Apparatus (in the set of cabinets joined sideways AGC Slave Extinguishing Apparatus is also used) is the simplest, the cheapest and the most effective solution for securing the electronics against fire and poor environmental conditions.
- manufacturing spaces, store houses (increased humidity, dust etc.); the construction of the cabinet provides the maximal security level for contained devices against conditions inside i.e. a production hall. The applied solutions enable easy configuration of devices inside the cabinet. Additionally, the application of AGC Master Extinguishing Apparatus (in the set of cabinets joined sideways AGC Slave Extinguishing Apparatus is also used) secures the cabinets against the fire.
Dimensions of the produced cabinets:
- width 600 to 1000 mm
- depth 600 to 1000 mm
- height 1200 to 2200 mm according to the client’s needs
- frame bearer of the industrial IT rack cabinet is based on a certified aluminum section with an extended flange which improves the air-tightness of the casings.
Aluminum sections of the frame are connected to each other with assembly blocks which enables:
- changing of the casing’s size depending on the size of the applied equipment,
- replacement of specific parts of the cabinet (e.g. in the case of vandalism),
- increasing of the maximal load of the cabinet – up to 800 kg of impact and vibrations resistance according to IEC 61969-3 standard and shock resistance according to IEC 61969 standard,
- enormous decrease of the casing’s weigh
Structural elements of the cabinet
The standard version of the cabinet is fitted with two pairs of sections inserted in a way to enable an unrestrained positioning and configuration of space inside the casing. It also possible to provide casing for the cabinet loaded up to 1000kg. Additional feature of the cabinet is the possibility to insert backer plates of various size in the rear space.
The cabinet may be attached a steel, air-tight or glassed front and rear doors. The doors can be easily fixed on the right and left side of the cabinet. Also, their opening angle is max. 120°
Cabling System in the Cabinet
The cables are inserted to the cabinet through cable holes on the roof and floor or upper and lower part of the rear covering. Cable holes (in standard version secured by an air-tight cable glade) can be fitted with brush cable glades, foam sealed pass-through cable glades, varied in diameter standard PG outlet cable glades or the sealing of other producers can be used.
