The second zone is the IT equipment space, and sealing between the first and second zone is critical. The EDGE-3 comes as standard with foam infills which cover the periphery of the 19” area.
Cabling can pass through this area from front to rear, but maintaining the seals integrity is very important. In addition to the peripheral area, the 19” aperture also needs to be treated in the same way – completely sealed. Unfortunately, not all equipment
comes in the standard 19” format, for this reason we have a number of solutions designed to assist in this process.
The air inlet wardrobe doors enable the required volume of air to uniformly flow over the full height of the ‘U’ space on both sides of the cabinet, thus ensuring that all the enclosed IT equipment receive the necessary amount of air.
The hot air exits via the active temperature-controlled doors, which is in effect the third zone. Once again, it’s imperative that the air exhaust is kept clear of obstruction from cabling, PDU’s, etc.
