The subrack InterProtect® stands out due to its particular constructive features:
Upper and lower cover are made from a continuously massive extruded aluminium profile. The surface is colourless passivated. The profiles have 11 screwing points on each side in order to fix the side panels.
The profiles are equipped with notches to introduce assembly- or threaded strips. These strips are designed to fix frontpane, rear wall, card guides and connectors resp. backplanes.
Connector- and backplane-sections can be realized with nominal depth of 160, 180, 220 und 240 mm.
Card guides with a nominal depth of 160 and 220 mm, optionally snap-in or screwable can be used.
The side walls, front panel and rear wall are made of seawater resistant aluminium. They have a material thickness of 4 mm and are colourless passivated.
Front panel and rear wall are each fixed on the 3U with 28 (42HP) resp. 52 (84HP) screws, on the 6U with 36 (42HP) resp. 60 (HP) screws.
The use of high-quality sealing materials provides for an optimal protection against dirt, dust and the intrusion of water.
By the use of conductive sealings an optimal shielding is achieved.
Seals are made of silicone or in a conductive version of silicone filled with nickel-plated graphite particles. Following customer requests seals made of fluor-silicone or seals with conductive particles made of silver-plated aluminum can be used.
