TAMPA, FL, January 18, 2013 — Rittal Corporation selected the annual BICSI Winter Conference as the venue to unveil its game-changing TS IT Network/Server enclosure. Rittal is bringing to market a new rack system that represents an intelligent modular system encompassing not only racks but a comprehensive range of high-performance accessories. It embodies a far simpler design than previous generations and tool-less, snap-in assembly technology to boost installation and operating efficiency – while lowering costs.
Every aspect of the new TS IT System has been engineered to take advantage of all the advantages of tool-free assembly; making it possible for one person to complete the process quickly and efficiently. For example, side panels are divided and slide into place – there are no screws. Slide rails, component shelves, telescoping slides and a variety of additional accessories simply clip into place on the rear panel and are secured in front.
With a load capacity of more than 3,200 pounds on its 19” level, the TS IT enclosure is ready to meet the highest stability requirements.
The new TS IT System is engineered for optimum use with climate control provided by specific IT cooling systems including Rittal’s liquid cooling packages (LCP). The new design is engineered to make the most of today’s technology and the innovations of the future to accommodate whatever the demands for server and network containment may be.
With the TS IT, Rittal has created a unique rack system to satisfy practically all the demands of today’s modular, flexible network and server requirements. It's easy to deploy, provides a safe environment for servers and other components, can be modified without major outlay and offers an optimum price/performance ratio. The TS IT System is positioned to establish a new standard in functionality and efficiency as it addresses each of these considerations. Even in its standard version, it encompasses virtually all the requirements placed on network and server enclosures and brings to the data center venue a new tool-free approach to enclosure assembly.
With the new TS IT, nothing is left to chance. The racks adapt readily to the latest data center trends, including automatic inventory systems and systems for recording the technical features of all components. The System can be fitted with Rittal’s latest monitoring system, CMCIII and supports direct integration of specific RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) sensor bars and customers can add an RFID bar at any time while the rack is in operation. The new variable mounting angles provide a range of opportunities for additional options, including cable routing aids and the space-saving integration of the new Rittal power distribution rail system PDU-i at the rear —fitted directly in the Zero U space between the side panel and mounting level.
The TS IT System also comes with the option of Rittal’s new Flex-Block base, which can be fitted without tools and is distinguished by its quick assembly features. All of these properties make the new TS IT System a flexible solution for the future and a cost-effective way to respond to the changing requirements of the IT environment in the 21st century.
