Part No: CPT-00055
The Molex In-Ceiling Zone Enclosure is a robust, and versatile product designed to house passive and active network equipment in a conveniently located, drop/suspended ceiling space to service a local work area or zone.
The In-Ceiling Enclosure is an adaptable product, accommodating up to 48 copper ports or up to 96 fiber splices or MTP/MPO fibers and 1U of active equipment. The product is designed to support a Zone Cabling infrastructure in a drop/suspended ceiling environment.
The product sits flush in a 600mm x 600mm/2ft x 2ft drop/suspended ceiling grid. By utilizing an In-Ceiling Zone Enclosure, the end-user takes advantage of shorter and easier to move, add and change, cable runs to the zone work area, as well as facilitating connections to wireless access points (WAPs), LED lighting systems, security cameras and other PoE building devices located in that zone.
The locking outer door allows access to the pull-down network equipment platform. Hydraulic, slow-release dampers fitted to each side of the network equipment platform provides safe and easy access to the connectivity. The network equipment platform must be locked following equipment installation for safety.
The network equipment platform features 19” equipment mounting rails, 5U capacity, and an integral cable management plate for the support of incoming and outgoing cable bundles. The Enclosure features eight cable entry knockouts for flexible cable routing. Cable tie securing points are provided on the roof and side walls of the enclosure for efficient cable routing and slack management. Sufficient space is provided for a fan unit (supplied separately) for temperature control of active equipment and three dust filters are included to protect the installation from debris.
The product accepts the Molex PowerCat range of unloaded copper patch panels and labor saving pre-terminated solid cable assemblies. The Molex 19” 1U fiber optic enclosures accommodating spliced and pre-terminated fiber harnesses or ModLink MTP/MPO cassettes are an ideal FTTZ (Fiber to the Zone) solution compatible with the Enclosure.
The In-Ceiling Zone Enclosure must be secured to the building structure using threaded steel rods and bolts.
