Specially designed for
data centre operators

What ratings are available?

All IS-1 models are available with either an IP20 or IP54 rating.

What does IP20 and IP54 mean?

IP20 and IP54 are protection classes which indicate suitability for various environmental conditions as well as the level of protection for people against any dangers during use. The first digit indicates the degree of protection against foreign bodies/contact. The second digit indicates the degree of water protection. There are protection ratings from IP00 up to IP69K.

IP20 means that the rack is protected against solid bodies larger than 12 mm (e.g. fingers). There is no protection against the penetration of water. A rack with an IP54 rating is protected from dust as well as splash water from all directions.

What does colo/colocation mean?

Colocation refers to the situation when your own servers are accommodated in an internet service provider’s data centre and connected to the network from there.

What are Colocation racks and what are they used for?

Colocation racks are cabinets which are physically divided into two or three separate compartments.  Each compartment has its own cable entry and is protected from access from the other compartments. This type of rack is specially designed for internet service providers (so-called co-locators) which rent out their data centre space including the racks.
