Baffle Kit for use with 15.8"D to 18.1"D, 11 RMU Cisco and other side-to-side airflow equipment
The Great Lakes ENSAB11 is a Baffle Kit for use with 15.8"D to 18.1"D, 11 RMU Cisco and other side-to-side airflow equipment in a 32"W x 42/48"D EN series rack or 30"W x 42/48"D ES series rack
Baffle Kits create proper airflow for switches and side-to-side airflow equipment, as suggested by manufacturers such as Cisco. Cool air is channeled into the equipment along the right side and exhaust air is directed out along the left side of the equipment. Kits are tool-less and easily attach to rails outside of the EIA mounting profile.
Based on your switch/equipment, choose the appropriate EN enclosure or ES enclosure. Take into consideration your cable management, cooling, and power needs; each enclosure addresses these needs in different ways. Baffle Kit part numbers are specific to EN or ES Enclosures.
The Baffle Kit Matrix below shows which kits accommodate various Cisco switches. Other brands of side-to-side airflow equipment can also be mounted. To determine the correct enclosure and baffle kit, compare physical equipment dimensions to what is listed.
