Mon, 08/03/2009 - 12:05pm
The new Type 15 enclosure offers more colors, a new handle assembly, 51 different sizes, and a flexible design allowing it to convert to a portable tower. The new handle design comes in three parts; a top and bottom that attach to the enclosure, and a centerpiece. The centerpiece ranges in height from 1U to 7U, providing flexibility without special tooling. The standard sizes of the new Type 15 enclosure range from 2U to 7U high and widths of 42 HP, 63 HP, and 84 HP. With depths in 245 mm, 305 mm, 395 mm, or 500 mm, there is a large range of possible size configurations. Customization is also available. The front of the enclosures can also optionally be recessed by 60mm with reduction kits. This provides space for protecting electrical or optical connectors and can be provided with or without a perforated air-intake panel or a solid panel. Other features of the Type 15 include a push-on extrusion that saves manufacturing and assembly steps, and hole locations allowing the unit to have mounting feet and a top handle installed. Rotated by 90 degrees and feet/handle installed, the enclosure becomes a portable tower. The enclosure configurations include 19” rackmount with/without handles, desktop with/without handles, portable case (horizontal orientation), and portable tower (vertical orientation).
