Re: Enclosure C7000

Hi ,

 

A C7000 enclosure is 10U high so you can install 4 enclosures in 1 42U rack.

 

Do not forget the weight of a fully equiped enclosure which can go up to +250 kgs...

So a full rack would be more than +1000 kgs... Not all floors in a server room supports that amount of weight...

 

Kr,

Bart

Re: Enclosure C7000

Some DCs also have a problem providing that much power and taking care of that much potential heat as well.

Need at least 2 x 60A circuits to power 4 enclosures and ideally would really want to go with 4 x 50A.
