NEW LONDON, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Legrand®, a global leader in high-performance network infrastructure hardware, today announced the release of the LX Cabinet System, bringing a range of enhancements to the company’s award-winning system for enterprise-level data centers. The LX Cabinet System now comes with superior modular cable management, scalable airflow management, simplified access and engineered integration with copper and fiber connectivity designed to maximize network uptime.
The LX Cabinet System has established success as a comprehensive platform designed to address the most demanding enterprise data center applications. Legrand uses the LX Cabinet System to craft purpose-built solutions for each facility, creating customer-specific solutions based on end-user requirements.
“The new LX Cabinet System maximizes performance through cable management innovations that reduce tension at the connection point, while supporting the weight of the cables to protect the connection,” said Mark Panico, president of Legrand Data Communications. “The system also introduces a patent-pending ventilation system that creates a reliable and predictable operating environment providing maximum uptime.”
Enhanced features of the LX Cabinet System include:
- Cable Management: The system’s innovative designs allow for maximized uptime and eliminate signal degradation by providing leading vertical, horizontal, front-to-tear and overhead cable management for any application. LX cable management offerings can be tool-lessly installed and removed to allow for easy adjustments and quick deployment.
- Airflow Management: LX airflow management provides maximized efficiency by creating a predictable operating environment to maximize equipment reliability. Tool-less LX airflow management accessories ensure maximum efficiency by eliminating bypass airflow and recirculation, as well as ensuring uniform intake temperatures.
- Cabinet Ventilation System: LX’s patent-pending cabinet ventilation system offers a full width and off-set chimney solutions. The full-width chimney is passive with an optional fan tray and the off-set chimney is passive with the ability to attach to the cabinet on either side.
- Security: The LX contains a variety of locking options to prevent unauthorized cabinet entry or tampering – from a traditional mechanical lock to the most advanced electronic lock, whether in a network closet or a Tier 4 data center.
“The LX Cabinet System is another component of the connected infrastructure that enterprises need to optimize space and drive greater data center efficiency,” said Panico. “This system will help companies simplify and strengthen their data center infrastructure to ensure uninterrupted business-critical applications and maximized network performance.”
