Frequent technology changes can make life difficult for IT and data center managers responsible for finding a place for all of the equipment to go - let alone perform as expected. Enter Knurr racks and enclosures from Emerson Network Power, which are designed to ensure system availability, flexibility for growth and durability for reduced downtime in server rooms, data centers and network access spaces. A new program from Emerson Network Power has reduced prices for the Knurr racks and established a quick-ship initiative ensuring 72-hour delivery.

News Facts:

  • Emerson Network Power is strengthening its Knurr racks and enclosures offering for IT managers and value-added resellers serving server rooms, data centers and network access spaces.
  • A quick-ship program starts immediately to fulfill the market's need for easily deployable racks. As part of the program, Knurr quick-ship racks will be available within a 72-hour timetable through Emerson's local Liebert product representatives and traditional IT equipment resources, such as CDW, Ingram Micro, local reseller organizations and Dell.
  • Knurr quick-ship racks will have a list price of less than $2,000, which represents as much as a 20 percent cost reduction from prior list prices.
  • Key enhancements include:
  • Full rear door, coupled with the existing 83-percent perforated front door, allows the racks to provide the freest airflow in the industry. The full rear door allows more ventilation and easier mounting of a Liebert XDA air flow enhancer, which increases the airflow through densely populated enclosures.
  • 19-inch Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA) rail features repositioned hole patterns that allow tool-less cable management to be mounted on the rack, which provides several choices in creating a vertical cable routing path. Conventional power strips also may be mounted vertically on the EIA rail within a 24-inch width cabinet, which is unique in the industry.
  • Low profile casters make the cabinet two inches lower than standard casters so the rack can easily roll through doorways. Integrated leveling feet improve rack stability.
  • Vertical blanking panels block off airflow between the EIA rail and the side of 32-inch-wide cabinets. The panels are particularly useful in switch applications.
