CPI Receives Patent for Vertical Exhaust Duct Technology

Posted by Julie Clark

Aug 3, 2015 11:14:00 AM

Congratulations, Chatsworth Products, Inc., on the new patent for Vertical Exhaust Duct Technology! The duct, which attaches to the top of a cabinet, guides hot exhaust air from the back of a cabinet to an overhead drop ceiling or ductwork to create a closed hot air return pathway to air handlers. When combined with CPI’s additional airflow products, complete hot air isolation is achieved, helping prevent equipment failure and lower cooling costs. 
The Vertical Exhaust Duct is available on these CPI cabinets:
  • F-Series TeraFrame® Gen 3 Cabinet – designed to be CPI’s premiere solution for protecting computer, data storage and network equipment
  • F-Series TeraFrame HD Cabinet – designed for safe transportation of up to 3000 lb of electronic equipment from factory integration to the data center
  • N-Series TeraFrame Gen 3 Network Cabinet – designed for the high-density cable and thermal management needs of network switches
  • GF-Series GlobalFrame Gen 2 Cabinet – designed as an industry-standard server and network storage solution

The Vertical Exhaust Duct is one of CPI’s many patented products. For a complete list visit CPI's

B-Line's CUBEFuse is Giving Engineers 70% More Room to Think

Posted by Paige Looney

The world is definitely not shrinking, but the systems and devices it runs on are becoming ever smarter, ever more complex and ever smaller. As companies race to miniaturize just about everything from cell phones to servers sensors, monitors and controls are getting squeezed into incredibly tight places. This led Eaton to re-think one of electrical engineering's most fundamental components — the fuse. One huge obstacle stood in Eaton's way, the knowledge that you can't design an advanced electrical system without figuring out how to protect it from overloads or short circuits.

Announcing the Release of the New Arecont MegaVideo G5 IP Megapixel Cameras

Posted by Paige Looney

Jul 30, 2015 9:00:00 AM

Accu-Tech is excited to announce the new Arecont Vision MegaVideo G5 IP Megapixel Cameras! This line of affordable MegaVideo G5 IP Megapixel Cameras has been upgraded to include multiple game changing features including CorridorView, non-integer scaling, STELLAR (Spatio Temporal Low Light Architecture) low light technology, remote focus/zoom, p-iris lens functionality, and on-board storage. With multiple lens and housing options, you can ensure the right set up to handle a variety of security needs, including those with challenging lighting conditions. 

The new CorridorView feature allows the camera’s image to be rotated 90 degrees to reduce capturing unnecessary data. This works great for narrow hallways where pixels are often wasted due to capturing the surrounding walls. Non-integer scaling provides the ability to scale images to different resolutions down to 128x96. This flexibility allows users to tailor their system for their specific need; reducing system bandwidth, storage requirements, and the associated costs. The MegaVideo G5 includes remote zoom/focus, making it easy for an installer to accurately focus the camera remotely.

High-PoE Success without a Sweat from Berk-Tek

Posted by Paige Looney

Jul 28, 2015 4:00:00 PM

We're in the midst of a digital transformation. One where more devices than ever are now connected to and sharing data over the internet. While the Internet of Everything will allow remote access across existing network infrastructure, it will drive more bandwidth, more wireless, and more PoE. The popularity of PoE has soared over the last decade, primarily due to its cost effectiveness.

As more devices are added to the internet, hard wired connections will connect the most sensitive and important connections, the same devices that will be powered through next generation PoE. When transmitting power through copper conductors, there will be resistance, and this will generate heat. As more power is transmitted, more heat is generated. You can imagine that transmitting 100W will generate significantly more heat than when transmitting 15W or 30W.  Heat is no friend to IP traffic on copper cabling. It weakens signal strength (attenuation) and makes IP traffic more prone to errors. More errors can cause your network to slow to a crawl and/or can possibly lead to rebooting. Taking this into account while approaching the new PoE standard 802.3bt, Berk-Tek has come up with solutions and recommendations to keep you connected.
