Schroff claims its robust Novastar enclosure for 19in rack-mount equipment is suitable for almost any working environment. Built around a die-cast aluminium frame, the cabinet is available in standard and heavy-duty versions offering static load-carrying capacities of 200 and 400kg respectively.
It can be used without a door for unhindered access to equipment, or with a steel or fully glazed door, both of which feature an opening angle of 180 degrees. Accessibility is further enhanced by quick-release side panels, which are recessed flush with the front and rear uprights to keep the overall cabinet width down to 553mm.
Novastar can be specified in over 20 colours and is available in a range of standard sizes, with heights up to 2,145mm and depths of 500, 600 or 800mm.
Mobility is ensured with four different castor designs, including one with built-in adjustable feet and one anti-static version. Accessories include fixed or pull-out shelves, slide rails, lifting eyes, a stacking kit and a side-by-side mounting kit.
