THE requirements of the telecommunications industry and network areas, in particular, make the mounting of metric and 19" equipment in enclosures desirable. Rittal has responded to the changing technical requirements with the TwinMount enclosure system.

The user can install metric or 19" interior equipment in the same enclosure without using extra accessories. A rotating profile system makes all receiving bores available all the time.

Compact dimensions, despite the extremely large volume and highest safety level, are other features of the TwinMount system family from Rittal.

Universal housings must be made to current as well as future requirements. Rittal presents the new TwinMount product range specifically for UMTS distributors, GSM relay stations, carriers, TC distributors and networks.

The compact housings of 600mm width, 400mm depth and 1000 or 1200mm height are available as wall-mounted or stand-alone versions. A specific feature of all versions is the frame sections which - like in the Rittal TS 8 enclosure family - provide more useful volume.

TwinMount combines this feature with the option to install either metric or 19" equipment. Depending on the mounted position of the frame sections, the required standard mounting holes can be varied. This makes TwinMount useful even if new requirements force a change of the fastening system.

A 2-point locking on the front door protects the equipment in the enclosure. In addition to this, the sophisticated design also prevents the removal of the side panels or the top and bottom plates (on wall-mounted housings) when the front door is locked.

Like the TS 8 enclosures, the TwinMount from Rittal is a symmetrical design and allows vertical and horizontal baying - also around corners. The door can be mounted either on the right or left side without requiring mechanical changes.

Openings in the top and bottom plates ensure efficient ventilation of the inside space. Besides, the roof panel of the stand-alone enclosure can be raised.

Active climate control components from the comprehensive Rittal TS 8 system range - from simple fans to climate control units - are available as options.
