CPI N-Series TeraFrame Gen 3 Network Cabinet Now Available

by Nate Johnson on July 8, 2014
Screen_Shot_2014-07-08_at_9.28.38_AM-1The Chatsworth Products (CPI) N-Series TeraFrameĀ® Gen 3 Network Cabinet System is a network cabinet engineered for high-density cable and thermal management. The frame design provides maximum flexibility for mounting equipment, managing airflow, organizing cable and power accessories.

Its unique frame design allows you to mount various sizes and models of switches, whether Cisco, Juniper or other, in the same cabinet. A highly flexible side intake duct can be adjusted onsite to accommodate and manage the airflow regardless of switch style, providing complete separation of hot and cold air within the cabinet to expand your data center containment strategy to your network infrastructure. It is designed to be compatible with Aisle Containment or on a per cabinet basis with a Vertical Exhaust Duct. 

Dual slides provide maximum flexibility for mounting and positioning vertical cable management accessories and attaching overhead cable pathway and containment structures.

Feature list:

  • Frame design provides maximum flexibility for mounting equipment, thermal, cable and power management accessories
  • Provides complete separation of hot and cold air within the cabinet 
  • A universal side airflow solution eliminates switch-specific accessories reducing planning complexity
  • Order pre-configured for front-to-rear, front-to-top, side-to-rear or side-to-top airflow
  • Vertical Exhaust Duct option provides side-to-top airflow
  • Includes large cable entry ports on the top panel, T-shaped cable guides on the front mounting rails and a front-to-rear cable manager to organize cables; vertical cable managers are available as accessories 
  • Easy access to cables and equipment with removable doors, top panel and side panels
  • Includes T-shaped cable guides with openings that align with each U on the rack to divide and organize cable
  • Includes leveling feet and transport casters
  • Includes two pairs of 19" EIA equipment mounting rails
  • #12-24 tapped or square-punched mounting rails with U markings for fast equipment installation
  • 2500 lb (1134 kg) static load rating on leveling feet
  • UL Listed 2416

Q: How does N-Series TeraFrame Gen 3 Cabinet control front-to-rear airflow to keep hot and cold air separated within the cabinet?

A: When configured for front-to-rear airflow, N-Series includes a front air dam kit and bottom panel with perforated front and rear doors. Open rack-mount spaces (U) are sealed with Snap-In Filler Panels, which must be ordered separately. Once equipment is installed in the cabinet and all open rack-mount spaces are sealed, the air dam and bottom panel form a barrier that wraps around the equipment. The cold air enters the front door and must pass through equipment to exit the cabinet. Hot air is isolated at the rear of the cabinet and exits the rear door. This configuration is similar to the standard configuration used in the typical server cabinet; however, N-Series has dual slide supports, which create a dedicated space along both sides of the equipment mounting rails for cabling more locations for attaching cable management accessories.

Q: How does N-Series TeraFrame Gen 3 Cabinet control front-to-top airflow to keep hot and cold air separated within the cabinet?

A: When configured for front-to-top airflow, N-Series includes a front air dam kit and bottom panel and a vertical exhaust duct on the top of the cabinet with perforated front and solid rear doors. Open rack-mount spaces (U) are sealed with Snap-In Filler Panels, which must be ordered separately. Once equipment is installed in the cabinet and all open rackmount spaces are sealed, the air dam and bottom panel form a barrier that wraps around the equipment. The cold air enters the front door and must pass through equipment to exit the cabinet. Hot air is isolated at the rear of the cabinet and exits the top of the cabinet through the vertical exhaust duct. This configuration is similar to the standard configuration used in the typical server cabinet with top exhaust; however, N-Series has dual slide supports, which create a dedicated space along both sides of the equipment mounting rails for cabling, as well as more locations for attaching cable management accessories. 

Q: How does N-Series TeraFrame Gen 3 Cabinet control side-to-top airflow to keep hot and cold air separated within the cabinet?

A: When configured for side-to-top airflow, N-Series includes a side intake duct and bottom panel and a vertical exhaust duct on the top of the cabinet with perforated front and solid rear doors with perforated insert. Open rack-mount spaces (U) are sealed with Snap-In Filler Panels, which must be ordered separately. Once equipment is installed in the cabinet and all open rack-mount spaces are sealed, the side intake duct and bottom panel form a barrier that wraps around the equipment. The side intake duct is cut to allow cold air to access the side air intake on the switch. The cold air enters the front door and the rear door, and must pass through equipment to exit the cabinet. Hot air is isolated at the rear of the cabinet and exits the top of the cabinet through the vertical exhaust duct. Note that there is no hot aisle in a vertical exhaust duct configuration. Hot air is exhausted through the top-mounted vertical exhaust duct, and the air at the front and rear of the cabinet is cold. This configuration allows supplemental cold airflow from the rear of the cabinet for more even distribution of airflow to the switch. The unique side intake duct and rear door design isolates hot  exhaust air inside the cabinet and exhausts it through the Vertical Exhaust Duct, allowing additional cold air to be drawn from the rear side of the cabinet. There are many industry solutions that address individual switches with a side-mounted exhaust duct. The N-Series provides a better solution with the side intake duct because it separates the front and rear of the cabinet completely, allowing isolation of hot and cold air within the cabinet, as well as complete integration with server cabinets in contained aisles.
