The APC NetShelter is a multi-functional rack enclosure influenced by customer feedback from around the world. These enclosures are designed to meet current IT market trends and applications ranging from high density computing and networking to broadcast and audio-video. With a strong focus on cooling, power distribution, cable management and environmental monitoring, the NetShelter rack enclosure provides a reliable rack-mounting environment for mission-critical equipment.
Optimized for high capacity cable management systems
NetShelter SX enclosures are optimized for use with high capacity cable management systems that attach to equipment mounting rails inside enclosures aligning with equipment mounting u-spaces and provide channels for routing and managing cabling.
Cable access openings with pre-installed brushes
Large cable access slots in the roof provides access for overhead cable egress. The bottom design allows for unobstructed cable access through a raised floor. Roof includes openings with brush strips pre-installed in locations biased towards the front of the enclosure to allow for data cable passthrough and provisions for air containment.
No need to spend hours choosing from and compiling dozens of part numbers to create a single enclosure. APC has made it easy by handling the details and providing complete enclosures with single part numbers.
Perforated front door with curved profile
Perforated front and rear doors provide ample ventilation for servers and networking equipment. Front door perforated area is optimized with a curved profile to provide greater surface area and allowance of more perforation coverage and higher perforation rating.
Quick release doors
Front door can be moved to the opposite side or interchanged with rear doors. Doors are easily removed with simple lift-off design.
Half-height side panels and option with brush strips for pass-through
Half-height quick release side panels reduce size and weight for easy handling and access to equipment. Side panels are lockable utilizing a single key with the doors.
Easily removable cable access roof
Roof can be removed with simple pull-pin hinges for access during equipment installation or even with cabling already in place and routed through the cable openings. Once removed the roof is reversible to reposition the larger cable openings for power distribution plugs and connectors.
Eyebolt support integrated into enclosure frame
Integrated eyebolt holes at the top of the enclosure frame allow the enclosure to be lifted for movement and enclosure placement using eyebolt lifting mechanisms. Refer to enclosure user documentation for detailed specifications on eyebolt requirements and enclosure weight limits.
Equipment mounting rails integrate with patch cabling systems
Equipment mounting rails include zero U mounting holes beside the EIA 19" mounting space that allow the installation of APC Data Distribution Cable (DDC) patch systems without taking up any critical equipment U-space.
Enclosure adjustment tools and hardware provided
All enclosures are provided standard with hardware bag that includes hardware for mounting IT equipment and tools for simple enclosure adjustment.
Adjustable mounting rails with captive hardware and rapid alignment
The vertical mounting rails can be adjusted in 6.4 mm increments covering virtually any mounting requirement for IT equipment. Easy alignment feature integrated into the enclosure mounting rail and side brace for quick alignment verification without the use of tools to verify alignment. U positions are numbered front and back for rapid installation of equipment.
Low-profile castors and adjustable leveling feet from underneath or above
Enclosures are shipped standard with both leveling feet and castors. Leveling feet can be quickly adjusted through the use of a screwdriver or drill, eliminating the need to reach underneath with a wrench.
Integrated joining hardware with multiple width enclosure alignment
Enclosures include pre-installed joining hardware to join enclosures in a row and provide additional stability to the enclosure. The pre-installed joining hardware includes holes for joining to an adjacent enclosure at 600 mm centers or 24-inch centers depending upon the floor layout.
