Chatsworth Products' newly redesigned CUBE-iT wall-mount cabinet secures equipment inside or outside telecommunications rooms
Chatsworth Products says the cabinet now includes many design elements to enhance usability, security and aesthetics, all of which promote use in public areas.
Chatsworth Products Inc. (CPI) recently announced enhancements to its CUBE-iT Wall-Mount Cabinet -- CPI’s wall-mount enclosure for securing and supporting information and communications technology (ICT) equipment.
The CUBE-iT Wall-Mount Cabinet is a secure, highly functional three-part, swing-out enclosure that secures equipment while maintaining ease of access for serviceability. According to CPI, the cabinet now includes many design elements to enhance usability, security and aesthetics, all of which promote use in public areas.
Broadening the cabinet’s applications is CUBE-iT’s increased UL 2416 load rating of 300 lb, allowing it to support heavier equipment. Also, for increased security, the cabinet's rear section is only accessible via an internal latch inside the front door, while a low-decibel fan kit option provides quiet operation while keeping equipment cool. Additionally, the cabinet's modern, sleek design now includes a tempered glass door option, providing an updated look with high-quality viewing panel.
Highlighting CPI’s expertise in cable management is a range of features that promote effective, proper cable management. Equipment Mounting Rails (included), the rear panel and a host of optional accessories feature multiple tie points for securing cable slack. The rear panel now features removable access panels with a rectangular knockout—perfect for retrofit applications over existing equipment and cabling.
“With this latest generation of CUBE-iT Wall-Mount Cabinet, our mission is to expand upon CUBE-iT’s already impressive capabilities. We’ve realized improvements in a number of areas, broadening CUBE-iT’s application outside of the traditional telecommunications room and into conference rooms, office environments and the like,” says Duke Robertson, CPI’s Product Manager of Open Systems.
In summary, new CUBE-iT features include:
- Increased security—Access to the cabinet is obtained via a single keyed lock. An internal latch provides access to the rear of the enclosure.
- Easy access to equipment—Three-part, swing-out design enables easy access to the front and rear of equipment. The removable top and bottom sections of the rear panels and rectangular cable knockouts make it perfect for retrofit applications.
- High load rating—The cabinet is UL 2416 listed for 300 lb (136 kg) capacity.
- High airflow—A variety of fan kits provide cooling of active equipment in a wide range of applications and environments. A low-decibel fan kit option provides quiet operation in public spaces.
- Multiple cable management options—Available Vertical Cabling Section, Vertical Lashing Brackets, and a 1U rack-mount shelf provide cable management and support solutions for virtually any application.
