Roof plate with concealed cut-out for fan mounting plate

As IT manager, you have carefully planned your IT infrastructure and at the time of installation, do not require active cooling of your IT racks due to low capacity utilisation resulting from the interior configuration. Imagine a situation where demand has increased and more active components are being added to the rack. Suddenly, active cooling becomes more important. The TX CableNet has the answer, with its multi-functional roof plate. Direct installation or retro-fitting of a fan mounting plate instead of the covered cut-out in the roof plate can be easily achieved. Alternatively, with screw-fastened roof plate designs, the cover plate can be raised with spacers to encourage ventilation. Best of all, there’s no need to invest in a new IT rack.

TX CableNet conversion tool

We want to make it as convenient as possible for you to switch from the tried-and-trusted Rittal TE 8000 to its new and improved successor, the TX CableNet. With 13 options, including new sizes with space-optimised heights and depths tailored even more effectively to your future requirements, the TX CableNet maintains the tried-and-tested quality of its predecessor, while at the same time setting new standards.

What does the conversion tool do? Search for the Model Numbers of TE network racks and get a list of alternative racks with similar dimensions – if indeed you want to use exactly the same sizes. In some cases, VX IT will also be displayed here. Please check whether the recommendation is suitable for you and your application. You may well find that the brand new size variants of the TX CableNet are even more beneficial. Please note that previously installed accessories may deviate from this. You complete the conversion by creating and downloading a wish. Register or alternatively, please contact your local ASM or customer service team.

Application scenarios

Healthcare

The TX CableNet is ideal as a conventional network distributor. The new type of cable entry above the roof – based on the “waterfall” concept – allows for the critical bending radii of copper and fibre-optic cables and makes inserting and clamping even large volumes of cable simple. As part of the climate control concept, vented doors support a mix of active and passive network equipment, such as switches for grouping and distributing data. The cold air from the surrounding office air-conditioning system easily reaches the active components via the perforated front and rear doors. All relevant rack parameters are easily monitored from a Web browser with a CMC III monitoring system or smart power distribution units (PDUs) that can be extended with, for example, sensors. The connection to a building or IT management system enables the monitoring of the distribution infrastructure even in very large properties and buildings such as those found in the healthcare sector – for example, hospitals, clinics or other medical care facilities.

Healthcare – Well cared-for
Telcotry

As well as supporting the “waterfall” concept with user-friendly cable entry from above, the TX CableNet is also equally suitable for office environments with a raised floor. Cables are simply inserted from underneath the rack. In this sample application, the cables of all IT components such as PCs, telephones or printers are routed to the patch panels, grouped together via a switch, and forwarded to a central server. The glazed door of the TX CableNet provides a clear view of the rack interior at all times, enabling complete control of all components. Climate control is equally straightforward and reliable – the cold air from the surrounding office air-conditioning system easily reaches the active components via the perforated front and rear doors. These doors can be easily and safely cooled optionally via a retrofittable fan mounting plate in the roof panel prepared for this purpose. Additional security is provided by the optionally installed AX comfort handle with security lock to guard against unauthorised access.
