Charles Walk-In Cabinets (WIC) are protective walk-in enclosures housing an integrated system of electronic components and equipment that can serve fiber and copper interfaces. Charles Walk-In Cabinets offer a lighter weight alternative to concrete basestation shelters providing a lower total cost of ownership. With the use of the Charles Thermal Management System (CTMS) as the closure’s main thermal system, the closed loop thermal solution requires no maintenance and offers energy savings over current concrete buildings and huts.
The WIC houses multiple equipment racks suitable for customer supplied equipment. The WIC has four Charles CTMS thermal devices mounted on the side walls, as well as a Charles Intelligent Ventilation System (IVS). Motion-sensitive lighting units are mounted on the front and rear. Multiple exterior ground bars all connect to an interior master ground bar.
