The ETSI standard is the current format for enclosures
used in the Telecommunications industry and has been
established by the European Telecommunications
Standards Institute - hence ETS I.
The 19” standard is a general purpose format usable in a
wide variety of applications - including
Telecommunications. Whereas ETSI cabinets are meant
specifically for Telecommunications applications - and to
house telecom equipment built to the ETSI format.
However, 19” Rack mountable equipment can also be
housed in ETSI cabinets through the use of 19” adapters
which conve rt from E T SI dimensions to 19” mounting
dimensions. But the opposite is not possible - i.e. ETSI
equipment in 19” Racks.
ETSI cabinets are generally of 2200mm height overall,
and either 300mm or 600mm depth, overall. They are
almost always grouted to the floor and the ceiling as well.
Cable entry provision is provided at top and bottom. Rear
panels and front doors are optional.
Two versions are on offer - the 300mmD “SHALLOW”
ETSI Rack, which has fixed side panels, and the 600mmD
“DEEP” ETSI Rack, which has removable side panels.
