1U FHD Rack Mount Enclosure

As we know, with the development of technology and the improvement of the computing capacity of hardware, people’s requirements for better network is growing higher and higher. However, as men pursue the goals of high density and capacity in a network, cable management may get out of control. High density fiber optic enclosures are the key to achieving a high density and economical cable solution. FS.COM provides a series of FHD fiber patch panel to help technicians to make up a better data center. Today, we will introduce this type, 1U FHD rack mount enclosure.

What Is Rack Unit?

Some people may not aware of what the “1U” actually means. U is short for rack unit, which is created by Electronic Industries Alliance. It’s used for measuring the height of a computer or network device and designed to fit into a standard of 19 or 23 rack. One U equals 1.75 inches(44.45mm). Rack equipment or hardware takes the design of rack mounted, and is produced in multiples of 1.75 inches, like 1U, 2U or 4U. Racks are able to hold devices of those sizes.

FHD Rack Mount Enclosure

FHD rack mount enclosure is designed in 1U, 2U 4U sizes with high density, which can store, organize and manage fiber terminations, connections, and patching in all applications. Due to the different designs of rack units, the various rack mount enclosures hold different amount of fiber cables. For example, 1U FHD fiber enclosure can connect as many as 96 fiber cables, while the most connectivity of 2U FHD product is 192 and the 4U is 288. Usually, rack mount enclosure is mounted onto 19″ and 23″ standard relay racks. There are two kinds of rack mount enclosure, one is the slide-out type and the other contains a removable cover.

It employs the black powder coated SPCC rugged heavy-duty steel housing, which contributes to enhancing the service life and preventing housing scratches and rust. With the increased port density in 1U of rack space, the FHD rack mount enclosure supports up to 96 fiber cables. And this allows technicians to increase density and upgrade technology without changing the existing equipment. With a wonderful design and proper size, 1U FHD rack mount enclosure provides a modular system for managing fiber connection.
