Siemon adds V800 to high density cabinet range

May 20, 2014 4:31 pm

Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, has announced the Middle East launch of its V800 cabinet, designed to provide a robust, high performance enclosure that is cost-effective for both high density data centre environments as well as floor distributors.

The V800 cabinet offers increased cabling and equipment density, whilst providing easy accessibility and thermal efficiency. Effective as a stand-alone enclosure, or in a multi-bayed configuration, the V800 provides a modular configuration to enable use as a cabling, network or switch cabinet.

Space in the V800 is provided on each side of the fully adjustable equipment rails for cable management, PDU mounting or connectivity on both the front and rear of the cabinet. This achieves maximum space utilization within the cabinet footprint. Four zero-U spaces on the front and rear of the cabinet allow for mounting of half height zero-U panels, which can be mounted in any of the four quadrants. Zero-U 19 inch panels provide 2U of mounting space each, offering up to 16U of additional space for any combination of 19 inch patch panels or fibre enclosures.

Accessibility is a key feature of the new cabinet and the 1000mm or 1200mm depth options are exact, allowing for full access to adjacent tiles immediately to the front or back of placed cabinets. This ensures that the full 1.2 metres of aisle spacing recommended by ISO/IEC 14763-2 and EN 50600-2-4 is afforded by the V800. Quick release functionality allows the doors to be rapidly removed and the full front and split rear doors are fully field reversible. Enhanced side access is provided by split side panels, allowing convenient access to installed equipment. The side panels feature integrated bonding via spring loaded bonding clips – eliminating the need for dedicated bonding conductors.

Thermal efficiency is achieved by the V800 with its contoured high-flow doors, built with 71% perforation to exceed the air flow requirements of the major active equipment manufacturers. In addition, the cabinet lid includes four integrated brush guards to ensure that cables can enter the cabinet without compromising thermal integrity. Further thermal management options are available for the V800, including exhaust fans and vertical exhaust ducts. Siemon also offers SnapFit thermal blanking panels to populate any unused space in the cabinet in order to further optimize thermal efficiency.

Available in 42U, 45U and 48U heights, with a choice of 1000mm or 1200mm depths, the high-capacity V800 cabinet is designed to be lightweight yet extremely stable, providing a dynamic load rating of 1021kg and a static load rating of 1361kg. It can be used in conjunction with Siemon’s standard V600 cabinets or premium VersaPOD cabinets and shares a common design appearance. The V800 has its own specific range of accessories including various cable management options, brush guards and blanking panels.

Commenting on the launch of the new cabinet, product manager Dave Valentukonis enthused, “Siemon’s V800 delivers high capacity, exceptional functionality and thermal efficiency to suit a range of application environments and is a perfect expansion of our choice of global cabinet offerings. Whilst feature-rich, this cabinet is cost-effective and its modular design enables flexible scalability. The initial feedback has been very positive and we are seeing strong interest from the market for this cabinet solution..”
