The customer liked the CP Technologies’ W05 wall mount chassis but needed to mount several industrial Ethernet hubs inside. They also wanted to prevent falling debris in the environment from getting inside the unit via the air exhaust vents and cable passages.
Starting with the standard W05 Solidworks model, we were able to extend the top plenum to accommodate the added hardware and ventilation requested by the customer. Additional wire harnesses were designed and fabricated to power the hubs via Molex MiniFit connectors installed into the rear panel. In addition, the unit is controlled by an AC breaker on the side. This required selection of a motherboard with a BIOS support “last state” power control. The power and reset switches normally associated with an ATX style computer were removed.
