WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., March 5, 2014 – Support and protect network switches regardless of size, model or airflow requirements with the newly redesigned N-Series TeraFrame® Gen 3 Cabinet System by Chatsworth Products (CPI). Taking equipment management one step further, the N-Series TeraFrame supports the deployment of different sized devices within one cabinet without the need for additional accessory kits, while providing complete airflow isolation.
The N-Series TeraFrame is a network cabinet for high-density network and storage switches that fully integrates into any data center containment strategy, providing complete airflow isolation like no other cabinet in the industry today. Its flexible, progressive design meets the demanding thermal requirements of next-generation network switches as well.
Complete isolation is achieved through integrated internal air dams that are available in four pre-configured solutions that support front-to-rear or side-to-side airflow through equipment. The cabinet integrates with aisle containment solutions or use CPI’s Vertical Exhaust Duct to direct hot exhaust air out of the top of the cabinet when necessary. A universal solution is available for side airflow switches, which eliminate the need to order switch-specific thermal management accessories, reducing planning complexity.
Additionally, high-density cable management is achieved by a unique frame design with dual front-to-rear supports, which provide space for large bundles of cable alongside rack-mount equipment. These dual slides provide maximum flexibility for mounting and positioning vertical cable and power management accessories, as well as the attachment of overhead cable pathway and containment structures – without affecting airflow.
Additional cable management enhancements include large, full-depth cable entry ports on the top panel, T-shaped cable guides on the front mounting rails and a front-to-rear cable manager to organize cables. All cable openings block bypass airflow with a choice of brushed or plastic grommets.
The new N-Series TeraFrame meets UL 2416 and provides a static load rating of 2500 lb (1134 kg). It can be added seamlessly alongside CPI’s F-Series TeraFrame Gen 3 or the GF-Series GlobalFrame® Gen 2 Cabinets.
