Cooper B-Line have strengthened their cabinet offering with Fusion their latest 19”cabinet range. Fusion combines a well engineered multi-purpose cabinet with the highest quality standards to offer users a cost-effective yet versatile packaging solution.
Suitable for a variety of market applications particularly Broadcast, Process control and Communications, Fusion is supplied fully assembled or flat packed with lockable glazed front and plain steel rear doors. Fusion is available in three standard heights 27, 42 and 47U, two widths 600mm and 800mm and two depths 600mm and 800mm. Optional heights and depths such as 1000mm are also available. The range has a fully welded front and rear frame providing maximum rigidity for heavier loads. The integral floor plinth with gland plates and jacking feet ensure stability and offer flexibility for the widest range of applications. The Fusion range is fully compatible with our extensive power and shelving options.
Thermal management has been well thought out within the cabinet range. Fusion has fully vented doors providing 53% open area and front to rear air flow is optimised by the solid side panels. Fusion is available with vented top plates or a variety of fan tray options. These range from 2 or 3 fans, on a single tray which can be positioned in any one of the top cut-outs for optimum cooling, to a cost effective single 4 fan tray. If consideration to noise and fan condition is necessary then thermal control and monitoring is available by fitting the latest module which simply mounts by replacing any one of the fans on the top tray arrangement, since the module is the same size as the fans.
Where cable access or density is an issue Fusion has superb cable management with cable gland entry on the top plate and large apertures for unrestricted cable entry in the integral plinth. The 800 wide variant also has 4 vertical cable channels for easier cable management and a simple baying kit provides straightforward cabling between cabinets.
Unlike the majority of cabinets which only have single point locks, Fusion cabinets have 2 point locking front and rear doors as well as lockable side panels. For additional security optional master key, mechanical and electronic locking systems are available.
Whilst providing the functionality for a wide variety of applications Fusion also has excellent aesthetics. Light grey panels with mid grey trims are the standard colours with further colour options available to order. The Fusion range is fully compatible with Cooper B-Line’s range of 19” accessories. The range includes a fully retractable stabilising plinth, which provides a safe and practical solution when heavy equipment such as large audio systems is mounted on sliding shelves.
Fusion is designed to make the optimum use of space. The 19” mounting rails of Fusion can be fitted so that the front of the equipment is flush with the front of the cabinet. This adds additional valuable equipment depth and also provides a neat, tidy finish without the need for doors or additional trims. This flush finish can be particularly useful in Broadcast or Process control applications were continuous access may be required but an attractive finish is also desired.
The Fusion range offers a cost-effective solution whilst maintaining the highest standards in thermal management, cabling access, security and aesthetics.
