Overview of the EDGE 3 Soundproof Server Cabinet
Part of the EDGE range of Micro Data Centres
The EDGE 3 Soundproof Server Cabinet is part of the EDGE range of Micro Data Centres that also includes the EDGE 5 Air-Conditioned Cabinet and the EDGE 7 Water Cooled Rack.
The EDGE 3 allows servers and network equipment to be deployed directly in office space and requires less than 1m² of valuable floor space. This allows for localised on-premise computing in populated or sensitive areas – especially where there may be a concern of equipment noise being a distraction or breaching ECC working noised guidelines.
The EDGE 3 will reduce equipment noise up to 28.5dBA (99.9%) of IT noise, which is tech speak for saying that it will reduce server noise down to a whisper. The EDGE 3 is also able provide a thermal load capacity of 11.5kW.
All of this is on top of the fact that the EDGE 3 is an excellent all round 19” rack that you would come to expect from uSystems. With adjustable front and rear mounting angles and 6 cable entry ports, this rack has a dynamic load rating of 750Kgs and a static load rating of 1,500Kgs. EDGE 3 has two EC fans located in the rear doors that maintains sufficient airflow throughout the enclosure, providing the required level of thermal dissipation, while optimising the level of ‘ambient’ background noise the cabinet itself generates. To ensure maximum power and energy efficiency the cabinet is controlled with variable fan speed controls and temperature sensors.
An onboard environmental system and optional security monitoring system provides peace of mind. With real-time alarms and alerts, which can be viewed via a web-based user interface, will be emailed to authorised personnel notifying them of any issues arising with the cabinet.
An on-board LCD touch display located on the cabinet doors provides a visual status of the cabinet with it changing from blue for correctly working to amber for alerts and red for alarms. Touching the display will provide environmental data relating to temperature and humidity, and in a status of alarm which sensor has triggered it.
The EDGE 3 has a range of options including security cameras, plinth panels, cable management fingers, IP54 upgrade (IP44 as standard), door dust filters, levelling feet, air ducting kit, Cisco side venting kit, sever depth extension kit and various power options.
The air ducting kit enables the heat that would normally be expelled from the rear of the cabinet to be directed into another room or to the outside. This facility enables the expelled heat to be used to heat other rooms or spaces.
