Vertical Wall-Mount

The VWM Series wall-mount cabinets are the most versatile solution for edge computing. Their low-profile design positions large rackmount equipment vertically. This conveniently allows access for upgrades, refreshes and adds or drops. The mounting rails are adjustable making it easy to customize whatever space in which they’re being set up. There are additional mounting options for small network devices and are available in two distinct versions as well as a full door for integrator access only and a split door for end-user access. An extensive list of accessories allows a single rack to not only support 4RU or 8RU of fixed rack mount equipment but also allows for additional space for network connectivity mounting both vertically and horizontally. The vertical wall-mount cabinet is capable of containing a complete network within including up to 8RU of traditional rack mount equipment, power, cooling and connectivity. There are versions that feature a 36 or 42-inch depth and they are UL2416 rated for a 150-pound static load.

Swing-out Wall-Mount

They are made with rugged, welded steel and feature locking doors that are standard to support PCI applications. The cabinets not only have reversible hinged doors but also, a hinged, swing-out middle section which makes them perfect for secure networks, small data closets, retail stores, classrooms, lecture halls, edge computing and all areas where floor space is at minimum.
