Emerson Network Power Introduces the Liebert Foundation EX Rack Expansion System

Adaptive System Improves Cable and Heat Management in High-Density Environments

Columbus, OH [July 14, 2005 - Emerson Network Power, the global leader in enabling business continuity, has released the Liebert Foundation EX, a rack expansion system that allows IT and network managers to quickly and easily adapt equipment racks to manage growing cabling requirements, improve critical airflow, and accommodate more or deeper equipment.

"Racks have evolved into a strategic asset as increasing equipment and cable densities drive heat management, power distribution and monitoring to the rack level," said Phil Aldag, Liebert senior product manager. "Our objective with the Liebert Foundation EX is to help IT managers increase availability, improve flexibility and reduce costs by bringing unprecedented adaptability to IT rack systems."

The Liebert Foundation EX uses patent-pending, multi-function Expansion and Cable Management Channels to add useful space and cable management capabilities to new and existing Liebert Foundation racks. EX Expansion Channels are available in various depths and can be added to the front and rear of a Liebert Foundation rack. The Expansion Channels also feature innovative cutouts to accommodate broad equipment mounting, and quick-mount cable support systems that speed the routing and bundling of power and communications cables. The EX Cable Management Channels can be mounted virtually anywhere in or on the rack to create cable support channels or troughs where needed.

The Liebert Foundation EX system enables equipment racks to play a proactive role in improving IT system availability through:

o Adaptive Space. Each enclosure can be individually adapted to changing equipment, cabling and heat removal requirements with the reconfigurable depth platform and multiple support options.

o Structured Cabling Environment. Integrated and add-on cable support organizes and routes cabling inside and out.

o Enhanced Heat Rejection. High heat densities are addressed with optimized internal rack airflow and Liebert XD (Extreme Density) cooling systems.

o Improved Equipment Access. Internal device management is enhanced with an array of mounting and cable support configurations.

o Optimized Performance of Liebert Systems. Liebert power and precision cooling is optimally integrated and distributed as heat and power densities grow.
