ISC West - Middle Atlantic Strengthens Security Application With Robust New Options for SNE Series Enclosures

Middle Atlantic Products today announced expanded capabilities for its premier security enclosure line, the SNE Series.

FAIRFIELD, N.J. — April 12, 2016 — Middle Atlantic Products today announced expanded capabilities for its premier security enclosure line, the SNE Series. The new End Cable Chase 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, which adds an additional level of security, frees up space on the wall, and reduces the amount of wiring necessary. The Internal Cable Duct securely and efficiently routes cables within 30"-wide SNE enclosures, ensuring signal performance and system reliability for mission-critical applications. With these new options, the SNE Series gives the security integrator the flexibility to build dependable and solid 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."
Building on the SNE offering's seismic certification and raised-floor capabilities, 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. The End Cable Chase 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 cost-effective 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 exactly 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.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
