GlobalFrame Cabinet Now Meets UL 2416 Standard, Supports up to 3,000 Pounds

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Nov. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ Chatsworth Products' (CPI) GF-Series GlobalFrame Gen 2 Cabinet System, the industry-standard server and network equipment storage solution for data centers and network facilities, now complies with the UL 2416 Listing, supports up to 3,000 pounds and has been tested to four times weight capacity.

The second generation of GlobalFrame is available in a wide variety of sizes, features smarter airflow management and supports CPI's Passive Cooling Technology, which has been proven to reduce energy costs by up to 40 percent. Other new benefits include:

  • A wider Vertical Exhaust Duct on 800 mm models to improve airflow and allow for higher kW capacity
  • Increased perforation on doors from 63 percent to 78 percent to maximize airflow
  • Increased front-to-rear rail depths to support deeper equipment
  • Improved front door hinge design for quick and effortless door removal and installation

Make deploying a network even easier by customizing GlobalFrame cabinets with CPI's eConnect Power Distribution Units (PDUs). Featuring the industry's highest ambient temperature rating of 149 degrees F (65 degrees C) and a low-profile chassis that optimizes airflow, eConnect PDUs are the answer to higher server densities and improved thermal management. Use CPI's Product Configurator to save time by ordering the GlobalFrame cabinet with PDUs pre-installed.

This extensive list of benefits and improvements makes the GF-Series GlobalFrame Gen 2 Cabinet System one of the most advanced standard cabinets available, and it is made with the quality you know and trust from CPI.
