Why FS 42U Server Cabinets is Your Ideal Choice?

Buying a cabinet for your network is one of the most important parts of designing a data center. The main point is to optimize the physical space available in the environment and maximize efficiency. Below are advantages of FS 42U server cabinets.

Meet the Highest Weight Standards of 1500kg

Every server rack cabinet has a weight limit. We need to ensure that the weight capacity of the cabinet is greater than the total weight of the installed equipment. Due to the different panels and structures of the cabinet, the weight capacity is also different. In general, a typical 42U server rack has a weight capacity of approximately 500kg to 1500kg. FS 42U server cabinets can support a fixed weight of 1500kg or a rolling weight of 1000kg to meet the needs of computer network-integrated cabling systems and high-density data center servers.

Greater Depth Provides More Space

FS 42U server rack has two different widths: 600mm and 800mm. 600mm is a basic type, while 800mm is convenient to arrange wiring accessories such as cable trunking and cable management boards. An 800mm cabinet makes it easier to maintain large wire harnesses than a 600mm cabinet. FS 42U server cabinets meet the two different widths while having a depth of 1170mm, providing more space for cable cord management. You can choose the size of 42U server cabinet you need with confidence and ensure it fits the operating environment.

More Efficient Cable Management Tools

Generally, server cabinets equipped with cable management tools make cabling more simple and efficient. It reduces the time and effort for users to equip management assemblies by themselves.FS GR Series server cabinets offer fixed or sliding trays, adjustable shelves, adjustable mounting rails, etc. FS 42U GR600 Series server cabinet comes pre-installed with full height dual PDU brackets and adjustable fixed shelves, and GR800 Series network and server cabinet comes pre-installed with full height dual PDU brackets and vertical cable managers for efficient cable deployment.

FS GR Series Grounding Wires Enable Safety Upgrade

FS 42U GR-Series cabinet utilizes quick-release ground wires to guarantee the entire cabinet is fully bonded. This grounding system not only protects people and equipment but also prevents visitors or other unauthorized persons from accessing the equipment.
