The VERAK family of IP55 sealed and EMC screened racks from Verotec is optimised for use in the industrial networking and control, broadcast and general electronics industries. Rated at 750kg static load capacity, VERAK is available in IP55, EMC and combined IP55 and EMC variants, in heights of 27, 37 and 42U in 600 x 600, 600 x 800, 800 x 600 and 800 x 800 footprints. EMC attenuation is greater than 80dB at 100MHz and 40dB at 1GHz.
The 2mm steel framework gives the units exceptional strength and rigidity, and the knife-edges that interface with the sealing gaskets to create the IP seal are an integral part of the verticals. The sides of the knife-edges are also the faces against which the EMC gaskets mate, enabling both IP and EMC protection to be achieved simultaneously. The doors can be changed from left to right hanging without compromising the IP or EMC sealing. Both versions are available with steel or glass front and rear doors, which use a four-point over-centre cam closure that exerts a controlled pressure on the gaskets, thereby avoiding over-compression and preventing sealing and screening performance degrading over time with repeated door openings.
Sealed and screened gland plates are available for the top and base to provide cable access without lowering the environmental protection or EMC performance of the enclosure. Cables can also enter the enclosure through 5U or 10U high cable entry panels above or below shortened front or rear doors.
VERAK EMC racks can be fitted with plain or ventilated top covers and bases; the ventilated covers allow forced or natural convection cooling without reducing the rack’s EMC performance. To provide forced ventilation in VERAK IP, IP55 sealed fans can be fitted to 5U panels above and below the front or rear door if required.
