Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, today announced an expansion to its RS series of equipment racks with a new cost-effective Value Rack for mounting and securing IT equipment in a variety of telecommunications spaces.
Ideal for saving time, money and valuable floor space, this sturdy 2-post open rack features EIA-310-D 19-inch universal rail spacing with mounting holes in 76mm (3 in.) deep channels and 44.5mm (1.75 in.) marked and numbered U spaces.
Siemon’s Value Rack is easy to assembly with standard hand tools and mounting holes for anchoring to the floor while its heavy duty construction offers a 544 kg (1200 lb.) weight capacity. The Value Rack features an integrated ground path with bonded assembly and ground studs, an open header design for routing cables and securing cable tray and U space markings that remain clearly visible with rack-mounted equipment installed.
“We are pleased to round out our full line of racks with a less expensive, yet highly durable 2-post rack that meets the industry need for this common IT equipment mounting solution while offering some unique differentiators,” says Candace Achenbach, product manager for Siemon. “Not only is the Value Rack compatible with Siemon’s full range of cable management solutions, but unlike other racks on the market, having U space markings that remain visible with equipment installed helps to facilitate moves, adds and changes.”
Siemon’s new Value Rack offers 45U of space and is fully compatible with Siemon’s wide range of vertical and horizontal cable managers and accessories that allow for customisation of a complete racking solution.
