EDGE 3 Soundproof Cabinets:

The EDGE 3 soundproof MDC is an exceptional range of enclosures with a combination of noise reduction and air-cooled thermal performance. The EDGE 3 is a superior alternative to a costly data and communications room, by allowing the deployment of servers and network equipment directly in the office and requires less than 1m² of valuable floor space. It allows for localized on premise computing in populated or more sensitive locations – especially where there might be a concern of server noise being a distraction or breaching ECC working noise guidelines.

The EDGE 3 will reduce equipment noise up to 28.5dBA (99.9%) of IT noise, while providing a thermal load capacity of 11.5kW.

The EDGE 3 is an excellent all round 19” data, comms and server cabinet, with adjustable front and rear mounting angles and 6 cable entry ports. Reducing energy bills is always desirable but expecting a standard server cabinet to assist in this aspect is virtually impossible. That is where the EDGE-3 is uniquely different in design, the two EC fans located in the rear doors maintain sufficient airflow throughout the enclosure, providing the required level of thermal dissipation, while optimizing the level of 'ambient' background noise the cabinet itself generates and minimizing power expenditure. To ensure maximum energy efficiency, it is controlled with variable fan speed controls and temperature sensors.

Peace of mind is provided by an onboard environmental and optional security monitoring system. Real time alarms and alerts, which can be viewed via the WebUI, will notify authorized personnel via email alarms relating to any issues with the cabinet. Meaning you know what’s going on and can monitor who’s coming and going 24/7. Advanced configurations are available for enhanced levels of security and redundancy.

EDGE 3 Cabinets:

The EDGE 3 family of enclosures have been designed to be more than just a state of the art sound proof boxes; they are also excellent data communication cabinets.

The combination of record breaking noise attenuation and thermal dissipation performance ensures the EDGE 3™ family is a world class leader in its field.

For the uninitiated 31dBA is a massive noise reduction to achieve from a 19" Enclosure and to achieve this USystems have invested heavily in research and development, utilizing state of the art technology and included the latest most effective acoustic materials available.

This amazing noise reduction has been achieved without compromise to cooling the active equipment housed within. In fact the EDGE 3™  has been tested and achieves a staggering thermal capability of 12kW of heat dissipation.

So what does 28.5dB(A) noise reduction mean and what benefits do I get?

As with all sound proof enclosures, the performance of the EDGE 3™ family relies upon the ingenuity of the enclosure design and the acoustic material used in order to remove as much noise from the enclosed sound source (e.g. servers) as is possible.

Noise is measured in decibels (dB(A)) so when we claim 28.5dB(A) noise reduction, this is the amount of noise being removed from the sound source (your server room or office).

Claims such as 90% noise reduction are a bit nebulous. A soundproof (or sound dampening) enclosure is going to remove a specified amount of noise (decibels) from the surrounding area, according to how it was designed and manufactured. Your sound reduction result is dependent on the amount of noise in the location you are trying to subdue.

Putting this into IT/Network context, the typical noise from (2) low form factory servers with avg. CPU loads is 62 dB(A). With (4) servers, 65 dB(A) and with (8) servers, 68 dB(A). With a EDGE 3™ soundproof cabinet placed in an office environment, which is typically between 48dB(A) (average office without speech) and 78dB(A) (busy office with speech), you will not be able to hear the original sound source from within the EDGE 3™ Cabinet unless you had your ear pressed up again the cabinet!

Noise Control:

  • A 5-decibel reduction can cut the risk of hearing loss in half.
  • Productivity of employees. Prolonged exposure to loud environments creates stress and can lead to accidents.
  • Insurance companies are applying pressure to corporations due to hearing loss claims filed under workman's comp laws.
  • Government regulations enforced by OSHA, State and local laws.
