LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, September 24, 2007 â€” As part of its ongoing commitment to provide integrators with full-featured, integrated enclosure systems for any size project, Middle Atlantic Products today introduced its new Intermediate Distribution Rack (IDF) Series at ASIS 2007. Designed to easily mount to building truss and uni-strut, IDF Series Racks are ideal for security integrators who need to house vital components in warehouses, retail outlets or any large, open facility where cable run distances can become problematic.
With a weight capacity of 150 lbs., IDF Series Racks are reliable, full-featured enclosures that can be used to house hubs, routers, digital video recorders or other components that are essential to security systems in strategic vantage points throughout a facility. An additional, removable aluminum plate can be machined in the field so that integrators can mount dome cameras, wireless antennae or other components.
â€œIDF Series Racks make use of the most functional features and accessories from our full-size, commercial enclosures to provide integrators with an integrated intermediate rack,â€ said Jay Franetovich, Application Engineer, Middle Atlantic Products. â€œThese rugged enclosures are designed to minimize heat build-up and dust accumulation and maximize real estate while accounting for enclosure essentials â€“ thermal, cable and power management. The IDF Series is a simple solution for remotely situated, active components of a security system that spans long distances.â€
IDF Series enclosures feature solutions for the essentials of integrated enclosure systems, including: Thermal: two factory-installed 4 1/2â€ exhaust fans for active thermal management and air intakes at the bottom of the rack to allow cooler air to enter the rack; Cable: conveniently located 4â€ grommeted cable pass throughs for conduit; and Power: a 9 outlet, single rackspace 15 amp power strip to ensure an adequate number of available outlets and amperage.
IDF Series Racks can be mounted using threaded rods or can be affixed directly to uni-strut. Solid front, rear locking and latched doors are standard on every rack, providing secure access to components housed inside. All IDF Series Racks include a grounding/bonding stud in the top of the enclosure to facilitate proper grounding and bonding of electronic equipment, making them compliant with NEBS and NEC standards.
IDF Series Racks are 24â€ deep with 21â€ of useable depth and are available in 12 and 16 space models. All racks are finished in an inconspicuous, durable, black textured powder coat. Visit booth 3535 during ASIS or MiddleAtlantic.com for more information.
