APC by Schneider Electric Debuts Flat-Packed Rack

24 May

APC by Schneider Electric, a global leader in integrated critical power and cooling services, today announced the launch of its SmartRack solution, a rack enclosure combining elegant aesthetics with practical functionality and affordability. SmartRack is designed to serve the IT infrastructure needs of a wide spectrum of businesses and is especially targeted for server and network application, in Server Room or Datacenter facilities.

SmartRack’s innovative design allows it to be flat-packed, reducing transport and storage costs. The SmartRack’s slim-line packaging has been designed with distributors and channel partners in mind. The compact arrangement contributes to a more cost effective transportation and storage process, while the clean design of the rack allows for efficient set up in only 15 minutes.

SmartRack features Zero ‘U’ PDU Mounting Brackets, permitting installation of rack mount power distribution units (PDUs) of any make / model, on each side. This ensures unobstructed, access to the equipment and airflow within the rack. The perforated front and rear door with a ventilation of more than 65% enhances air flow, thereby providing better thermal management within the rack. SmartRack provides cable entry ports on the top and bottom thereby enabling better management of any Network cabling architecture (overhead or under floor).

A load rating of 700kg ensures SmartRack’s stability and strength, while adjustable levelling legs and a swivel caster kit enable the enclosure’s easy and secure manoeuvrability.
