Emerson Network Power today announced the availability of the Knurr DCM Rack. The Knurr DCM is an adaptive, easy-to-manage second-generation server rack platform that enables simple installation of servers and rack-based equipment support products, such as Liebert rack power distribution units (PDUs) and Liebert uninterruptible power supply systems.

Emerson Network Power’s Knurr racks are designed to handle frequent equipment changes, reduce space constraints and provide a secure environment where business-critical technology can be appropriately monitored for performance. This design ensures system availability, flexibility for growth and durability for reduced downtime.

The Knurr DCM rack enclosure, available for purchase in the Europe, Middle East, Africa and North America, has multiple accessories that are either tool-less or significantly more convenient to install than typical rack accessories. Other easy-to-install accessories include:

· Two discrete cable management products

· PDU mounting brackets

· Fixed and telescopic shelves

· Top-cover-based cable routing system

· A full range of Liebert environmental sensors

“As compute density and kilowatts per rack continue to escalate, the equipment rack has become a key component in managing the data center and critical facilities,” said Jeff Sturgeon, vice president of marketing and solutions, Emerson Network Power’s Liebert products business in North America. “The Knurr DCM provides IT managers with a hassle-free, flexible, efficient solution to protect the densely packed computing power of virtualized servers and switches, optimize air flow and maximize useful mounting space.”

The Knurr DCM 19” enclosure provides a fully-assembled aluminum extruded frame with a patented T-Slot, providing many quick mount options including power strips and Liebert SN™ sensors. The enclosure is offered in heights of 24U, 42U and 45U with widths of 24”, 28” and 32” and depths of 40”, 44” and 48”. The rack also has a quick release door with two internal hinges for easy access and has been strengthened with center depth support and a door stiffener.

Specifically, Knurr racks feature lightweight extruded aluminum framing that is superior in strength and 50 percent lighter than standard steel-frame racks. The 42U racks, which can easily roll through U.S.-size doorways, use a patented, infinitely variable mounting system that increases application flexibility by allowing equipment to be installed at any position within the rack, rather than having to align with pre-drilled holes as with other rack systems. Casters and tool-free mounting further simplify setup and installation.

Knurr quick-ship racks are available with 72-hour delivery through Emerson’s local Liebert product representatives as well as Emerson Network Power Innovation Partners, CDW, Ingram Micro, and Dell.
