Increased Load Rating Makes CPI's DistributionFrame the Best Solution for Today's Intelligent Buildings

SHANGHAI – Chatsworth Products' (CPI) DistributionFrame Cabinet System, engineered to optimize, store and secure networking and building automation equipment in Intelligent Buildings, now supports up to 680 kg (1500 lb) of equipment.

"As a result of the change to Intelligent Building Automation System designs to local area network architecture, combined with the need to increase the bandwidth required to support smart devices, video on demand, remote home management and security, the amount of communications equipment being installed into commercial business and multifamily housing Equipment Rooms will continue to increase. CPI recognizes that it is important that the racks and cabinets being installed into these spaces, be able to support the additional weight of equipment, cabling, and thermal requirements. Thus, we made some design improvements to allow the frame to carry the additional load, while maintaining the high level of quality our customers have grown to expect from CPI," statedSam Rodriguez, CPI Product Manager of Cabinet Thermal Solutions.

CPI's DistributionFrame is a high-quality, cost-effective Intermediate Distribution Frame (IDF) cabinet that is manufactured locally and highly adaptable to future equipment changes. In addition to the increased load rating, the DistributionFrame Cabinet supports any mix of patch panels, fiber enclosures and switch equipment and is designed with a small footprint to conserve floor space.

The cabinet's top panel has four grommet-protected cable access ports for easy cable entry and protects cables from cuts or abrasions. Additional cable management accessories are available to ensure all cables, including Cat 6A, are neatly organized and secured for optimum network performance.
