Siemon Interconnect Solutions (SIS) Enables Reliable and Rapid Data Center Cabinet Deployments
November 10, 2015, Watertown, CT — Siemon Interconnect Solutions (SIS), a business unit of Siemon that provides custom network infrastructure solutions to OEMs, value-added resellers and system integrators, is pleased to announce a new shock pallet and ramp for reliable, cost-effective delivery and deployment of fully loaded V600 42U data center cabinets. The heavy-duty shock pallet, coupled with a re-usable corrugate packaging system and available quick-attach ramp reinforced with two steel channels to guide casters and ensure smooth roll off, enables V600 cabinets to be pre-loaded with components, tested and packaged at any location and then safely reshipped to customer locations for rapid deployment.
Designed to comply with International Safe Transit Association (ISTA) Part 3E, the shock pallet ensures that V600 cabinets can support the additional weight of equipment, while protecting the cabinet and installed components from damaging motions, forces and conditions that can occur during transport. The foam structure within the pallet design provides a resilient, highly effective packaging and cushioning material that absorbs repetitive shocks to protect valuable electronics components.
"As more data centers realize the benefits of modular design using preconfigured cabinets that offer rapid, repeatable and consistent deployments with predictable costs and superior and active components at their facilities prior to deployment at their customer sites," says Janet Thomas, product manager for Siemon Interconnect Solutions. "Our V600 42U server cabinets are a popular choice for these types of deployment, and it is vital that the preloaded cabinets arrive safely to their final destination without damage to valuable components and equipment. Our new shock pallet and ramp are the ideal solution."
With a dynamic load rating of 2250 lbs. (1021 kg), V600 42U cabinets are a robust, lightweight and stable high-capacity server cabinet that features high-flow, full-accessibility doors and side access with a variety of available cable management and cooling accessories. When purchased with the shock pallet, the V600 42U cabinets come with four pre-installed casters for easily rolling the cabinet down the ramp and into position. The pallet materials are also heat treated and produced in compliance with International Plant Protection Committee's ISPM 15: Guidelines for Regulated Wood Packaging Material in International Trade.
