Tripp Lite, a global manufacturer of power protection and connectivity solutions, has expanded its line of SmartRack® wall-mount rack enclosures to include switch-depth cabinets with built-in finger ducts for cable management. These vertical cable managers, along with cable pass-throughs and cable tie cutouts, provide orderly routing of cables from EIA-standard 19-inch rack equipment, such as network switches and patch panels.
Similar to other SmartRack wall-mount enclosures, the new racks have a sturdy steel frame with a locking front door and side panels to help keep equipment secure. The side panels are removable for convenient access to equipment. Adjustable mounting rails, numbered rack spaces and included equipment mounting hardware simplify equipment installation. 9U models have additional 2U brackets for vertical mounting of more equipment.
To better accommodate cable bundles and the built-in cable managers, the new cabinets are 29.62 inches wide, about 6 inches wider than similar SmartRack cabinets. By reducing cable clutter, the cable managers promote efficient airflow through the cabinet to help keep equipment cool. The cabinets also have top, bottom and side ventilation ports to support installation of fans.
“Tripp Lite rack enclosures are known for installer-friendly features, and these new racks offer the added convenience of built-in cable management,” said Craig Watkins, Director of Product Marketing, Racks and Cooling. “In addition to promoting better airflow, improved cable organization makes equipment maintenance and replacement easier. Internal cable managers also save the hassle and expense of adding external cable managers to the cabinet.”
The cabinets ship fully assembled and ready for wall-mount installation with user-supplied hardware.
