DCS Panduit Downtime not an Option 1 400

The PanZone® TrueEdge™ Wall Mount Enclosure is used in a variety of locations and industries such as manufacturing plants, education, healthcare, offices, Edge computing, and small offices. Now, more than ever, extended periods of downtime are not an option, especially for hospitals. The new, PanZone® TrueEdge™ Wall Mount Enclosure greatly reduces network downtime and delivers a variety of customization opportunities to ensure ease and reliability. 

Network Enclosures are used in a variety of indoor, low profile, high density, applications and provide security for a wide range of system equipment such as: switches, servers, gateways, power supplies, etc. The PanZone® TrueEdgeTM Vertical Wall Mount Enclosure mounts traditional horizontal equipment vertically on a wall and, in tandem, minimizing network infrastructure investment by providing a solution to eliminate a rack or cabinet (TR in a BOX and Micro Data Center).

DCS Panduit Downtime not an Option 2 400

The PanZone® Wall Mount Enclosure features include:

  • •Strength – load rating up to 400 lbs.
  • •Perforated top and bottom for optimal thermal capacity
  • •Space – equipment depth for up to 36"
  • •Switch or server
  • •Removable top and bottom for easy equipment access
  • •Vertical equipment mounting
  • •Hassel free bracket system for easy configuration based on user preference
  • •High density
  • •0 RU vertical patching
  • •Security – locking swing handle
  • •Scalable – offered in three different active RU sizes
  • •Various accessories available for functionality and protection

 

The PanZone® TrueEdgeTM Wall Mount Enclosure is used in a variety of locations and industries such as manufacturing plants, education, healthcare, offices, Edge computing, and small offices. Panduit developed a low-profile, high-capacity solution that encourages the ability to expand while maintaining efficiency with your network equipment.

1. Switch Configuration – Utilizing the angled patch panel bracket provided at the top of the enclosure provides a high-density solution for network connections. Mounting switches vertically on the E-rails below the patch panel provides easy cable routing from patch panel to switch. It
is recommended to use a small diameter 1 – 1 patching solution with configurations to maintain optimal airflow.

2. Edge Computing/Server Configuration – Moving the tool-less E-Rail brackets to the top of the enclosure allows for a maximum equipment depth of 36". Mounting the front of the server upward on these E-rails allows for optimal air flow and the secure, removable cover provides easy installation and equipment access. Utilizing additional E-rail brackets, switches or other rack mounted equipment (PDU, UPS) can be mounted at a lower height and the 0 RU vertical patch panel brackets can be used to provide adequate patching. Thermally, the 9 RU enclosure is tested to withstand beyond 4,000W (13650 BTU/h) of dissipated heat from active equipment and fan kits can be installed to boost airflow.

PanZone® TrueEdgeTM Wall Mount Enclosure Thermal Solutions

Dissipated heat that comes with the consumption of power by electronic endpoint devices such as switches, servers, UPS, etc. plays a major role in the performance of the equipment. Airflow and internal enclosure temperature are a major concern and should be addressed as part of the deployment plan in order to avoid overheating of equipment and preventing network failures.

Some of the current cooling solutions in the market include louvers, minimal perforation, and fan kits. All these solutions provide airflow, but not enough airflow to dissipate the heat generated by the high-density of power that the equipment is generating. For example, A 6 RU enclosure allows for 6 RU of active equipment, but it is the thermal capability of the enclosure that defines the type of equipment that can be mounted in the enclosure. The PanZone® TrueEdgeTM Wall Mount Enclosure’s engineered design is thermally tested to withstand the maximum amount of heat output with minimal limitations on the equipment being used. The perforated top and bottom draw cool air in from the top and the equipment and added fans push the hot air out through the bottom of the enclosure, guaranteeing top network performance.

DCS HELUKABEL Critical Keys to Selecting Right Cable Manufacturer 1 400

As we began 2022, global material shortages and rapidly increasing costs have now become the new reality. The types of materials that have suddenly become difficult to procure are wide-ranging and include computer chips for automotive manufacturing, wood for new construction, and electrical components – just to name a few.

These shortages have created great uncertainty, which is reflected in a recent poll of contractors in the U.S. by the Chamber of Commerce. They reported:

  • •83% are experiencing product delays.
  • •71% are struggling to meet schedule requirements.
  • •68% are experiencing delays expected into 2023.
  • •58% are putting in higher bids on projects.
  • •53% are saying major project shutdowns/delays are a top concern.
  • •41% are saying material shortages continue.
  • •39% are turning down work opportunities.

One of the major material components that affect the cost and availability of wire and cable is copper. This widely used metal, which traditionally has been a volatile commodity, has been steadily increasing in price, which is due to several supply and demand issues.

Omron Whitepaper - MVRC: Mark, Verify, Read and Communicate

Utopias are common in fiction, from Plato’s The Republic to The Federation in Star Trek. For manufacturers, a world without unplanned downtime would be the perfect utopia. The question is, is abolishing unplanned downtime a far-fetched dream, or is it closer than we think? Here, Jonathan Wilkins, marketing director of obsolete industrial equipment supplier, EU Automation shares his vision for a downtime free age.

According to research by Oneserve, machine downtime is costing British manufacturers over £180 billion a year. Unplanned downtime halts production, but can also lead to wasted raw materials or damage to the system itself – amplifying the cost beyond loss of production. Further research conducted by GE Digital found that 70 per cent of companies lack full awareness of when equipment is due for maintenance, upgrade or repair..
