Optima EPS, an Elma Company, has developed the AT series of vertical rack enclosures for ATCA telecom blade?" target=_blank>AdvancedTCA (ATCA) blade and server applications.

The AT cabinets come standard in a 44U(H)-by-600(W)-by-600(&?)mm size with a total height of 2,125mm. The cabinets support up to three 14U ATCA chassis. Other sizes and dimensions are optional.

The ATCA cabinets also incorporate a thermal management solution, based on simulation studies, to meet increased density and higher processing speed requirements. The cabinet features integrated air baffling to ensure cooling path integrity, four high-volume CFM fans and a top cabinet exhaust.

The cable management is configurable for horizontal and vertical chassis mounting with a fiber-optic router for management. The 19-inch vertical bracket accommodates industry-standard cable brackets and is notched for up to 1-inch Velcro straps. It also provides 3x depth stiffeners for tying cables front to rear, and features top front and top rear cable access panels and an optional 1U cable trough for mounting between sub-racks.

Other features include a 4-point latching handle system and removable side panels (quarter turns, slotted or keyed). The cabinet door is gasketed for environmental sealing, and the modular base allows for fixed mount, leveler, or caster options.

Pricing for the ATCA cabinets start at less than $2,000.00, depending on type, options and quantity. Delivery is two weeks.
