Outdoor fibre server equipment is expensive, susceptible to harsh weather conditions and vulnerable to vandals and theft. When setting up your outdoor networks, it is vital to find the most secure, robust enclosure. We have built, what is by far, the best, safest solution, the ARIES RANGE of IP55 Vented Server Cabinet.

The Ventilated Network Server Cabinet is one of the most popular outdoor solutions for several reasons which include the following:

  • The ARIES RANGE of IP55 Vented 20U Server Cabinet has an IP55 ingress protection rating (IP) which ensures the server cabinet is dust and water resistant.
  • The server cabinet is also well ventilated to keep equipment running at the right temperature
  • It is powder coating to the highest standards for corrosion protection
  • It has a secure locking mechanism to keep equipment protected

Networking equipment generates heat and ventilation is essential. If networking equipment is not kept cool, it is prone to failure and a shortened lifespan. Damage caused by weather is not always immediately evident as a catastrophic meltdown - signs of heat damage include node crashes and hardware failures that can happen over a period of weeks or even months, leading to chronic downtime. The vented doors on the ARIES RANGE of IP55 Vented Server Cabinet draw in air through washable filters and exhausts it through the insulated roof keeping equipment in the optimal range. Other features of the ARIES RANGE of IP55 Vented Server Cabinet include:

Some environments call for a server cabinet that protects servers from the elements within relatively controlled environments. These include underground mines, factory plants, etc. where dust and water spray can get into the atmosphere. When evaluating the enclosure needs in a harsh environment, the decision becomes more complicated.  The TAURUS Range of IP52 Rain and Dustproof 19-inch Server Cabinets are the ideal outdoor server enclosure solution. Below is a quick review of some issues to consider when selecting an enclosure for use in a more challenging location.

  • How Harsh is Harsh? The selection of protection levels can significantly impact the product choice
  • Do all component need to be protected?
  • Does the box need to meet outdoor/UV requirements?
  • How will the electronics be vented/cooled?
  • How heavy is the equipment being installed and are there any restrictions to the weight that the overall product can be?
  • How are the components going to be mounted?
  • How is the enclosure going to be mounted?
  • What are the aesthetics involved?

When dust or moisture ingress is a problem, then the TAURUS IP52 Rain and Dustproof 19-inch Server Cabinet range are ideal for these harsh environments. These cabinets are made from heavy gauge steel & sealed with continuous air-cushioned rubber gaskets ensures the cabinet is dust & waterproof. Front & rear doors are secured with a 3-point locking system with washable air systems.

 

Our server cabinets and enclosures are ROHS compliant and made in South Africa. We also have a SADC certificate for the regional market and export as far as the EU.

When setting up network equipment, server racks, cabinets and other hardware, space can quickly become a precious, limited commodity. But not every application requires a full-size floor cabinet or even an open frame rack.

The ARIES RANGE of IP55 Wall Mount and Swing Server Cabinets can help free up floor space while providing security and accessibility for your network components, audio/visual equipment, and other hardware. Ceiling boxes disappear into your plenum spaces, keeping components and hardware secure and completely out of the way, allowing your space to be free of floor-standing cabinets.

 

The ARIES RANGE of IP55 Wall Mount and Swing Server Cabinets are great for smaller applications that don't require a full-size cabinet. Swing-out wall mount server racks make it easier to access components for maintenance or modification.

 

The ARIES range of 19" outdoor enclosures offers protection against weather & dust. The cabinets are manufactured from powder coated steel. The units come in either ventilated or non-ventilated versions. Fans are mounted on the bottom gland plate and have washable filters. Cable entry is via the bottom gland plate. The door is sealed with reinforced continuous air-cushioned rubber gaskets which are fitted onto a bent double lip gutter. The manufacturing process incorporates sophisticated laser & CNC technologies before chemical cleaning and powder coating with a UV resistant coating.

How do you manage your server environment temperatures? If you are in a data centre, this is part of the infrastructure. However, if you are in a harsh environment, the management of fluctuation in temperature is even more critical for electronic equipment. There is a solution. The Polar range of EV (Environmental) cabinets with internal climate control.

These server cabinets are ideal for the industrial sector, mining, power plants, and any harsh environments. Heavy gauge steel and sealing with continuous air-cushioned rubber gaskets ensures the cabinet is dust and waterproof.  3-point locking systems secure the front and rear doors.  Air-conditioned server cabinets put less stress on the server cooling components and eliminate the likelihood of overheating wear and damage.

The benefit of an air-conditioned server cabinet is it's self-contained, so the air conditioner only has to cool the area immediately around the server hardware instead of the entire room. Air-conditioned server racks can cut cooling-related power bills.
