CommScope, Inc., (NYSE: CTV), a world leader in infrastructure solutions
for communication networks, announces the introduction of its
cutting-edge, quieter 52 Universal series enclosures designed for
residential applications. The engineering design, which focuses on vital
areas of acoustic and thermal performance, takes the CommScope flagship
52 Series cabinets to the "next level" in outdoor enclosure evolution.
Advantages of the New 52 Universal Cabinet Series:
-- Enclosure deployments (deeper in the community) require quieter
cabinets. The 52 Universal series accommodates this need by using
variable speed fan technology with creative airflow path management. In
concert with acoustic dampening packages, the results reveal acoustic
performance levels below 50 decibels.
-- At the same time, high bandwidth services and their associated
thermal loads require efficient enclosure thermal management that the 52
Universal series enclosures amply deliver. The patented heat exchanger
technology significantly increases thermal management capability over
the legacy CommScope 52 Series and pushes CommScope further to the
forefront in high performance thermal design.
-- The 52 Universal series is offered in two different sizes. The 52BU
Universal enclosure measures 46" wide X 63" tall X 26" deep with a
single bay of 44" for 23-inch equipment rack space. For larger service
needs the 52EU Universal enclosure measures 46" wide X 63" tall X 53"
deep with dual back-to-back bays of 44" for 23-inch equipment rack
space. Both cabinets have enhanced protection and splice storage
-- Both enclosures are fully sealed, modular designs that are easily pad
mounted and designed to accommodate growth. The 52BU Universal can also
conveniently be pole or wall mounted.
-- These designs provide superior environmental protection and security.
The enclosures features durable, graffiti-resistant beige powder coat
paint finish and integrated backup battery chamber with optional battery
bases to augment reserve needs. Various alarms to detect such conditions
as high temperature and intrusion can be factory wired. Fully sealed for
maximum electronics protection, the enclosures are designed, tested and
certified for GR-487 issue 2 and Zone 4 compliance.
"We believe the CommScope 52 Universal cabinets are the next phase in
outdoor enclosure technology and are a wise choice in long term outside
plant investment desired by service providers," said Ted Hally,
executive vice president and general manager, Enterprise. "Through our
Carrier group, CommScope has manufactured over 350,000 enclosures that
have been installed worldwide."
