The “C-TYPE” range of cabinets are often the smaller, have less technical and modest thermal requirements. This range of cabinets are designed to house hardened/passive equipment which have a higher tolerance to temperature, dust and moisture.
As standard the cabinet’s interior is cooled by the use of natural convection and as such the internal air temperature will always be greater, between a Δt of 20/30°C above the external ambient air surrounding the cabinet. Fans can also be integrated to reduce the above Δt figure further.
The temperature increase is dependant on the internal active equipment and the heat being dissipating. High equipment temperatures can result in a reduction of up to 50% of their expected life therefore fans may need to be integrated.
As an aid to the natural convection of the cabinet’s air flow, vents are provided at both top and bottom of the cabinet, these are positioned discreetly under the roofs overhang and base of the door to avoid drawing attention to the would-be vandal.
Passive & low heat equipment and connectivity equipment protection.
FTTC, FTTP, Telecoms, WiFi, Mobile Communications
Usually IP54 (Up to IP65)
Can be IP & EMC shielded along with potential for Seismic/Shock attenuated
