Editor's Choice Knock Down Server Rack Rated for Heavy Duty Applications Equipto Electronics newest rack may take a minimalist approach on design, but offers the same strength and durability of much higher-priced equipment racks. Designed for use in server rooms, data centers and other applications requiring multiple open racks, Equipto's KD series open rack is very cost competitive. With knock down (KD) assembly, the rack can ship for a much lower dimensional weight than all-welded frames. Maximum weight capacity is a full ton (1,000# with casters), which more-than-handles a maximum load of modern 19 inch mount servers and peripherals. The standard rack measures 75 by 23 by 36 inches and weighs less than 120 lb. The design is based on 16 main 14 gauge structural steel sections, including four 41U rack rails. Field assembly takes less than 30 minutes. Like other Equipto Electronics rack systems, the KD series is manufactured in the US with fully RoHS compliant materials. Standard paint is wrinklefinish black powder coat, with other types available. Additional options include rails, casters and shelves. Leveling feet are standard. Future Facilities Release 10 of its 6SigmaET Thermal Simulation Tool At the heart of Release 10 lies an improved unstructured gridding capability. This advanced technology makes solving up to six times faster by altering the granularity of its grids to account for varying levels of complexity in the model. This allows users to run more variations of their designs, large models with greater accuracy and in ever-shorter timeframes. Responding to industry suggestions, Release 10 makes key thermal analysis tasks even simpler, with improved configuration of the simulation environment including altitude and solar radiation. 6SigmaET now also calculates the weight of each part so engineers can easily optimize their product to reduce weight. Through these enhancements, engineers can use 6SigmaET to develop designs for an even greater array of real-life and hypothetical scenarios, without the need for costly prototypes. Other features include a new in-built Package Builder, which allows users to automatically generate individual IC component models simply by defining a list of preset parameters. Through this interface, users can create detailed integrated circuits thermal models for inclusion within their product designs, allowing them to analyze internal temperatures of complex ICs. Release 10 also takes advantage of 6SigmaET's new partnership with cloud platform Rescale, allowing simulations to be solved on demand via high performance computing in the cloud. Reducing solve times and enabling users to solve large and detailed simulations. 4 Summer 2016 * www.ElectronicsProtectionMagazine.com Volume 14, Issue 2 Editor & Publisher, David Webster Director of Content Nick Depperschmidt Senior Editor, Shannon Given Associate Editor, Heather Williams Manager of Administration & Customer Service, Marsha Grillo Fulfillment Services & Circulation Marc Vang, Ross Webster Advertising & Sales Robert Schaudt, Sue Hannebrink, Scott Webster Production Jullie Hammond, Production Manager ELECTRONICS PROTECTION (ISSN #1544-7812) is a publication of Webcom Communications Corp.
