Support Brackets for Data Communication Racks and Instrument Enclosures
Support brackets for data communication racks are similar to a shelf but also allow the equipment to be positioned in the center of the rack, which can help stabilize the rack while using less space. Rear brackets for instrument enclosures are also available.
AutomationDirect offers quality data communication racks and accessories from Hammond Manufacturing, Wiegmann and Saginaw, top enclosure manufacturers in North America. Data communication racks provide a housing to mount data communication equipment and devices used in industrial environments.
Hammond open-frame data communication racks provide threaded rails on the front and back of the rack to ensure flexibility when mounting
equipment. These racks are available in various styles and configurations.
Rack cabinet doors are available as an add-on where needed and are available as a solid cabinet door or as a vented cabinet door.
