RACK board

RACK board - sistem de montaj vertical în cabinete RACK
In September 2018, the management of DIPOL set the following task for the company's Technical Department: Due to the fact that RACK cabinets have become a standard for communication installations in buildings, it is necessary to develop a system for mounting TERRA multiswitch equipment in RACK cabinets. Engineers from the DIPOL's technical department have developed the integrated solution for mounting various devices on the surfaces of vertical planes in RACK cabinets for a month. The RACK board solution was ready to be presented to the public at Energetab 2018 trade fair. The solution met with enthusiastic reception from the installers who visited our stand.
The RACK board vertical assembly system is ideal for installing multiswitches, signal amplifiers, splitters etc. in RACK cabinets. The elements of the multiswitch system mounted on ZMB-1-800 panels located on the sides of the cabinet can feed up to 256 subscriber outlets.
RACK board allows installers to make use both of the front and side surfaces of 19" RACK cabinets, which are accessible after dismantling the side walls. The solution enables unprecedented volume filling factor of the cabinets, while maintaining good access to all signal distribution devices, with proper ventilation, connection transparency, application of patch panels to connect all inbound and outbound cables. All the features make it easy for technicians to diagnose the network during operation.
Below we present various possibilities of mounting devices in RACK cabinets. We do not suggest a specific solution. In every case, the main indications should always be the compliance with standards, requirements for each device, and assembly convenience.
Main features of the RACK BOARD vertical mounting system:
  • Predefined installation sets for individual equipment configurations enable simple and quick assembly.
  • RACK board mounting panels allow for installing the equipment items and cables so that the components are placed in a clear and aesthetic way. The highly professional solution ensures that the longer cables are hidden in the middle part of the cabinet, whereas the connections and the devices are easily available (in opposite to placing such devices horizontally). This improves the equipment cooling and facilitates measurement and adjustment procedures.
  • The RACK board system is a universal solution - originally dedicated for Terra equipment, it can be easily adopted for use in GSM (repeaters), network (routers and switches) and other applications.
  • Because every device in the RACK board system is placed vertically and it does not adhere to any other device or element of the RACK cabinet, it is naturally cooled by the air circulation inside the cabinet.
  • Each device has its own mounting panel and the spaces between devices allow for easy wiring.
  • Hardware components of RACK board system:
    • ZMB series - side assembly components for installing on the side surfaces of large standing cabinets. Currently, we offer panels for mounting in 800 x 600 cabinets.
    • ZMC series - front assembly components that can be installed together with ZMB panels.
    • ZMD series - front assembly components for hanging or standing cabinets (cannot be used with ZMB series due to 19'' width).
  • With the RACK board system the installer can make use not only of the front of a RACK cabinet (rails with 19" spacing) but also of the side spaces - the access to those devices is obtained by dismantling side walls of the RACK. The ZMB side assembly is mounted (on the left and/or right side) to the front and rear RACK rail. Currently we offer the ZMB-1-800 assembly for 600x800 mm standing RACK cabinets.
  • The installer can use ZMC front-mount assemblies in several versions. They allow for installing in the front part of the cabinet both the 19’’ standard devices but also other equipment mounted on the EURO TH35 rail or on vertical planes..
  • The elements of the RACK board system are made of hard aluminum sheets PA11 (DIN, ISO: AlMg3), powder painted in RAL9004 color. If the prepared mounting holes do not fit the mounted equipment, it is easy to drill new ones.
  • ZMD front assembly components are dedicated for hanging or standing cabinets (cannot be used with ZMB series due to 19'' width).
  • The cables providing signals from antennas are connected to the patch panel with F connectors which, via bridges, transmits the signals to a next patch panel and the required devices. By taking the connection bridges, the installer/technician can measure the input signal in any path.
  • All outbound cables are also connected to panels with F connectors. Each connector can be marked with the number of the corresponding apartment, which helps to perform diagnostics of the whole distribution network, beginning with the measurements of the output signals.
Side assembly components ZMB
ZMB-1-800
Side assembly component ZMB-1-800 R77105
Side assembly component ZMB-1-800 R77105 is used for mounting devices vertically. The component is mounted on the front and rear RACK rail (left or right). Suitable for mounting in standing 600 x 800 mm RACK cabinets with removable side walls - it provides free access to installed devices. We recommend to use it in 32U R912013 and 42U R912014 RACK cabinets.
Side assembly component ZMB-1-800 R77105 for 800 x 600 standing cabinet
The assembly panel is made of PA11 aluminum sheet (1.5 mm thick) with size of 200 x 530 mm. The panel has four mounting holes with 6 mm diameter (180 x 120 mm spacing) dedicated for Terra multiswitches MV-532L R70732, MV-932L R70882. The kit includes four M5x10 machine screws with nuts. In the case of using other multiswitches, one has to drill the appropriate holes.
The ZMB panels should be mounted with 70 - 150 mm vertical spacing (so, the modules should be installed every 6U - 8U) in order to ensure good wiring conditions. For example, a 32-output multiswitch for two satellite positions needs as many as 41 cable connections, and the minimum bending radius of the TRISET-113 E1015_500 cable is 35 mm (in the case of such fixed connections).
Mounting the ZMB-1-800 panel
Mounting the ZMB-1-800 assembly to the RACK rail
The ZMB-1-800 R77105 side assembly is pre-assembled, the angle brackets are attached to the panel with screws. The screw connections should be loosened to adjust the spacing between the brackets so that they match the span of the front and rear rail of the cabinet. The assembly provides 22 mm adjustment range. The maximum span is 570 mm, which corresponds with the maximum span of the front and rear RACK rails in a standing cabinet with a depth of 800 mm. The brackets should be screwed to the RACK rails at the selected level of the cabinet, using the caged nuts included in the ZMB set.
Front assembly components ZMC
for use with the ZMB side assembly component
To mount the ZMB panels, it is necessary to use the ZMC front panels. The width of the ZMC panel is specially designed to enable the application of the ZMB panels on the side surfaces of the rack cabinet.

Organization of inbound cables from antennas
The signal cables from the antennas (both satellite and terrestrial) are connected from the rear, through the R48602 surge protectors, to the F connectors on the 19" patch panel. Each front F connector is connected by through the R82540 bridge with the corresponding F connector of the next patch panel, from which the signal is applied to the devices located in the cabinet (to the first splitter or amplifier). The use of the bridges makes it very easy to measure the input signals. The technician can just pull the bridge to access any F connector with the input signal.
The organization of inbound cables from antennas
To employ the surge protectors to the F connectors of the patch panel connector, the F-f/ F-f adapters should be replaced with longer ones sold as E80380. This professional adapters, in addition to the guaranteed attenuation and matching parameters, have thread lengths of 14 mm, which ensures passage through the patch panel and effective screwing on of the surge protectors.

Organization of subscriber outputs
Each output from the multiswitch is connected to the assigned subscriber's F-f connector on a patch panel. This ensures, as in the case of signal cables from antennas, the separation of the core building installation from the devices in the cabinet and the internal wiring of the cabinet. This practice is enforced by the EN50173 standard to create a structured cabling interface for testing the installation.
All output signals to be distributed to subscribers are available on the sockets of the patch panel
The R912024 horizontal cable organizers maintain the minimum bending radius of cables fed to the patch panel from the front of the cabinet. F patch panels and organizers are grouped in threes - this ensures optimal bending conditions of the cables.
