Middle Atlantic Products recently upgraded its security enclosure line, the SNE Series. It now features an end cable chase, which is a full-height, slim enclosure option that optimizes the space at the end of an enclosure bay by allowing additional devices to be mounted, including those that would otherwise reside on the wall. This enables the containment of all system components in one enclosure, thereby adding an additional level of security, freeing up space on the wall, and reducing the amount of wiring necessary. The new enclosures also include a new internal cable duct that routes cables through 30-inch wide SNE enclosures. With these new options, the SNE Series gives the security integrator more flexibility when building dependable solutions to meet the specific requirements of IP, analog, and hybrid security systems.
“Middle Atlantic strives to design products that make the integrator’s job easier, and the SNE Series was engineered with the security market in mind,” said Jay Franetovich, application engineer at Middle Atlantic. “SNE Series enclosures are the most strongly certified in the market, empowering security integrators to install reliable systems, whether they are working with digital, analog, or hybrid components. These new options extend the platform’s capabilities to be more inclusive of all potential security components in the room and enhance the reliability of the system.”
The end cable chase gives integrators more space to integrate security components they traditionally could only mount on the wall, such as an alarm panel or access control equipment, as well as smaller devices. It also accommodates the series’ signature split side panels to allow integrators easier access to equipment within. It ships preconfigured and incorporates Middle Atlantic’s Lever Lock system, which facilitates cable management and small device mounting within the enclosure using unique tool-free cable management bars and accessory mounting plates. The top-mounted brush grommet panel provides a clean, organized cable entry method while maintaining critical thermal management to ensure all the components run smoothly.
The SNE Series internal cable duct provides integrators with a solution for protecting, routing, and organizing data cables, patch cords, and power cords inside SNE Series enclosures. Featuring durable plastic cable fingers and a dual hinge front cover, the internal cable duct cleanly routes cables where needed, preventing signal failures due to pinched and bent cables. Integrators can patch cables on multiple levels within the enclosure without modifications or causing potential system compromises.
