The amount of cabling in cabinets has increased considerable, cables off all sorts ranging from PDUs and busbar cables to the equipment cabling from within the rack. To be able to meet those changing needs, we have developed the Nexpand network cabinets with an optimized design. For example, the top-of-cabinet section contains more space to guide the cables through and the positioning of the entries is improved. Because of the modular inserts the cabinet provides optimal flexibility.
The Nexpand network cabinets are available in various types. A standard version, a version with side panels, airflow package and /or cable tray. Want to expand your Nexpand network cabinets with various accessories? Find the options here.
Network cabinets with side panels
A side panel is especially used for end-of-row applications to aesthetically cover the side of the cabinet. The panel is horizontally divided for easy handling. Side panels are equipped with quarter turn locks.
Airflow management is the efficient guidance of the various airflows in data centers to keep the cold and hot air separated optimally. To optimize that cooling process, air leakage and recirculation must be minimized by using an airflow management package. Airflow management packages consist of a plate on the bottom, top, left and right. The airflow management package enables an airtight adjustability in the depth direction of 150 mm. You can also use your cabinet in an aisle containment solution. Check out the possibilities.
Structured cabling is important for the reliability and optimum performance of your data center. The cable tray is used for vertical cable management and is steplessly adjustable in-depth direction. Cables can be attached to the tray using tie-wraps and/or Velcro. Additionally, plastic 1U cable rings can be toolless mount to the cable tray.
Network cabinets are always 800mm wide. The cabinets have an optimized design: the extra cut-out in the middle can perfectly be used for a fan unit or extra high volume cable entry. The network cabinet has VMR profiles at the front with a hole pattern for cable management.
