Universal Introduces New Rackmount Air Filters


Universal Air Filter Company has introduced a new line of Rackmount Air Filters, the first fully framed, cleanable air filters designed specifically for 1U and 2U high rackmount electronics.

Rackmount Air Filters are designed to meet the unique needs of short rackmount electronics used in such applications as data centers, telecommunications central offices, and CATV headends. (Rack Unit --1U -- equals 1.75 inches or 44.5 millimeters.) These air filters were developed to help OEM designers deliver ever-smaller rackmount electronics that are reliable, cost effective, and meet the stringent environmental and safety requirements of Telcordia NEBS and UL/CSA 60950. Rackmount electronics often operate under extreme shock and vibration conditions in dust contaminated environments.

Designers of 1U and 2U high electronics can chose between a variety of media, frame and EMI shielding options to meet specific needs. Rackmount Air Filters may be configured with cleanable, UL 94 HF-1 rated Quadrafoam filter media. Aluminum frames and EMI shielding screens offer adequate protection for many applications; however, UAF offers free engineering assistance in selecting just the right air filter options for the equipment.

Universal Air Filter routinely delivers free prototype air filters to customers within five working days. Universal Air Filter products meet the following standards and classifications: UL 94 HF-1; UL 900 Class 2, CE; Telcordia NEBS GR-78-CORE and GR-63-CORE. When used as part of a fire enclosure, they also may be configured to comply with the flame-drip requirements described in UL/CSA 60950 and EN 60950.
