Siemon has introduced a new wall mount cabinet into the African market that saves valuable floor space whilst providing a cost-effective means to secure and protect network equipment from dust, tampering and other hazards in a wide range of applications.
The Wall Mount Cabinet is an EIA/ECA-310-compliant NEMA Type 1 enclosure that features fully integrated and adjustable vertical cable management for properly routing patch cords and cables and an adjustable mounting rail system to support any standard 19-inch rack mountable equipment.
With a right- or left-hinged locking back plate design that offers easy rear access to equipment and wiring, it is ideal as a mini telecommunications room or for remote network distribution and consolidation points in open, unprotected spaces such as warehouses, retail facilities and schools.
The new cabinet can also be used for zone cabling in intelligent building applications, passive optical networks or any other applications where expensive full-size cabinets are not required.
“We are very pleased to round out our comprehensive cabinet offering with this highly versatile wall mount cabinet,” says Lee Funnell, technical manager: EMEA at Siemon. “The integrated vertical cable management, ample top and bottom cable knockouts and adjustable equipment rails enable fast and easy installation. In addition, the cabinet’s sturdy design, IP20 ingress rating and locking front door and back plate ensure superior security and protection.”
Manufactured in the US and compliant with UL 60950 safety standards, the new Siemon Wall Mount Cabinet has a load capacity of up to 91kg and is available in 12U, 18U and 24U sizes and in 24-inch and 30-inch depths. It comes with either a plexiglass, solid or vented front door that features a standard locking swivel handle which is easily retrofitted with access control or biometric handles for authentication in high security applications.
The new cabinet is compatible with Siemon’s existing fan kits, rack-mount PDUs, shelves and other accessories, and it can be purchased preloaded with Siemon components as a V-Built custom preconfigured cabinet.
