Cabinets and racks are fundamental components for the protection and housing of electronic equipment, and the management of cables in the data center.
Selecting the right rack system to install electronic, computer, and communication equipment in company server rooms and data centers not only protects and organizes IT devices but also optimizes airflow through them to achieve significant electrical energy savings.
When choosing a network cabinet system, there are several factors to consider, including:
It is critical to determine where the cabinet will be located, as there are significant differences in terms of design and construction.
Rack cabinets for outdoor use are built with weather-resistant materials, such as stainless steel, and galvanized steel with electrostatic paint finishes, other materials such as polycarbonate and aluminum are also highly resistant, making them suitable for withstanding adverse weather conditions.
The size of the network cabinet should be selected based on the amount and size of equipment that will be housed in it. Wall rack cabinets are available in a wide variety of sizes, with heights from 28 cm to 1.3 meters, all with a width of 52 cm and depths of 51 and 59 cm, with load capacities up to 59 Kg. It is important to leave enough space for ventilation and cable management.
The weight capacity of the network cabinet should be able to accommodate the weight of the equipment that will be housed in it. Always select a cabinet that has a higher weight capacity than the equipment you plan to install.
The network cabinet should allow easy access to the equipment for maintenance and repairs. Your rack cabinet may be equipped with special locks and keys to guarantee the safety of the equipment housed. Cabinets with front and rear access doors, as well as removable side panels, are recommended.
The network cabinet should have proper ventilation and cooling mechanisms to prevent equipment from overheating. Some cabinets come with fans, while others may require additional cooling equipment.
The cabinet should have cable management options to keep cables organized and protected. Consider a cabinet with cable trays, cable ties, and other cable management features.
The cabinet should have lock mechanisms to prevent unauthorized access to the equipment and data. Some cabinets come with additional security features, such as biometric or card-based access control.
The cost of the cabinet should be within budget, but make sure to prioritize quality and features over price.
It is important to research and compares different network cabinet systems before making a decision. Consider the specific needs of your organization and consult with professionals in the field to ensure that you choose the right system for your network infrastructure.
