Can the NetShelter SX cabinets be bayed with the side panels on, and how do the baying brackets work?
Customers may want to bay the cabinets with the side panels attached.
All versions and serial ranges.
Side panels are used to control heat dispersion from adjacent cabinets.
NetShelter SX cabinets are designed to be bayed together with the side panels in place. Every NetShelter SX cabinet ships with the required baying hardware included eliminating the need to order multiple part numbers to compete a row. The design of the NetShelter SX baying hardware allows for a single cabinet with equipment installed to be removed from a row. The baying of cabinets with side panels in place offers several advantages to end users. First and foremost, front to back cooling air flow is enhanced by the use of side panels. This is of great importance when rack mounting multiple servers into a cabinet.
The baying brackets are located behind the front door on the left hand side and also on the left rear frame. The only tool needed is a #2 Philips screwdriver. Simply loosen the bracket and rotate it to the side. Using the supplied M5X12 screw, attach the bracket to the adjacent cabinet. There are two alignment holes on the bracket allowing the cabinets to be joined at 600 mm on center, or 24 inch on center. If the later option is chosen then there is a gap which can be filled with the optional baying trim kit, AR7600.
