Enclosure Helps Manage and Protect Deeper Servers and Larger Volumes of Cable
APC announced the NetShelter SX 1200 mm Deep Enclosure, a complement to its existing NetShelter SX enclosures. The enclosure offers an innovative cable management design, including an additional pair of cable channels at the rear of the enclosure to enable organization of more power and data cables. These rear cable channels also offer additional room at the back of the enclosure to mount power distribution and enable the mounting of as many as four vertical rack power distribution units (PDUs) on one side of the enclosure. In addition, the rear cable channels neatly dress cables and keep PDUs away from cable management arms. It maintains an enhanced roof, utilizing the same design as the standard enclosure roof, but with larger cable openings along the sides. This design improves cable access, while an enlarged center rear opening allows for better routing and management of large bundles of cable. The enclosure is available in three different sizes -- 42U/600 mm, 48U/600 mm, and 42U/750 mm -- to help meet a variety of server dimensions. The enclosure is now available in North America, Europe and Japan and carries an estimated resale price ranging from $1,700 to $2,150.
