HotLok® 19″ 1U / 2U and 23″ 1U Blanking Panels
HotLok® blanking panels are a snap-in blanking panel that provides a 99%+ effective seal in IT equipment cabinets. The state-of-the-art technology, designed for both 1U and 2U openings in 19″ racks and 1U in 23″ racks, controls airflow for optimised cooling effectiveness. The energy-efficient cantilevered sealing vanes eliminate the gap between adjoining HotLok® blanking panels or the installed equipment, providing a snug seal and no air leaks.
Both 1U and 2U versions of HotLok® blanking panels achieve the following:
- Reduce hot spots and bypass airflow by preventing equipment exhaust air or hot-aisle air from migrating to the conditioned air-intake stream at the front of the cabinet
- Deliver lower temperature conditioned air to the upper third of the cabinet, typically the hottest area and most prone to equipment failure
- Control airflow to save energy by adjusting cooling unit setpoints
HotLok now available for 23″ racks
HotLok blanking panels are now available in a 1U 23″ blanking panel for 23″ racks or frames. This new size has all the same benefits as the original 19″ HotLok blanking panels.
