APC Intros Data Center

WEST KINGSTON, R.I. -- APC, part of the
critical power and cooling services business unit of Schneider
Electric, today announced the availability of its latest data center
offering, the NetShelter(R) SX 1200 mm Deep Enclosure, a complement
to its existing NetShelter(R) SX enclosures. All APC enclosures help
manage and protect equipment in a reliable rack-mount environment for
high density server and networking applications.

"With deeper servers and larger volumes of cable, companies are
continuously looking for ways to maximize space in their enclosures,"
said Pat Johnson, vice president, Rack and Cooling Solutions, APC-MGE.
"With the NetShelter(R) SX 1200 mm Deep Enclosure, customers now have
a model that is 130mm (5") deeper than the standard 1070mm deep

The NetShelter(R) SX 1200 mm Deep Enclosure offers an innovative
cable management design, including an additional pair of cable
channels at the rear of the enclosure to enable organization of more
power and data cables. These rear cable channels also offer
additional room at the back of the enclosure to mount power
distribution and enable the mounting of as many as four vertical rack
power distribution units (PDUs) on one side of the enclosure. In
addition, the rear cable channels neatly dress cables and keep PDUs
away from cable management arms.

The NetShelter(R) SX 1200 mm Deep Enclosure also maintains an
enhanced roof, utilizing the same design as the standard enclosure
roof, but with larger cable openings along the sides. This design
improves cable access, while an enlarged center rear opening allows
for better routing and management of large bundles of cable.

"As data centers continue to grow with technology investments and IT
processing power, the NetShelter(R) SX 1200 mm Deep Enclosure helps
address the growth needs of companies by delivering feature sets that
essentially future proof the data center," added Johnson. "The new
enclosure addresses many of the problems customers face today,
including changes in the server environment, particularly the changes
in server dimensions and their effect on cable management and space
