Product Highlights

The CR222-NR ceiling-mounted equipment rack allows electronic equipment to be conveniently installed out of sight, in the ceiling plenum. The CR Series provides a space-saving solution while also being aesthetically discrete, blending in with common drop-ceiling tile designs. They permit equipment to be securely mounted above the ceiling in a sealed UL plenum-rated cabinet with an easy access door. The door assembly has an open frame design so the installer can place a ceiling tile into the frame and better conceal the entire ceiling rack. The ceiling tile cut-out is safely held in place by retainer tabs, locking it to the frame. To open the door, two retention thumb screws can be removed, and the door has attached safety cables to protect against injury.

The CR222-NR provides 2RU (rack units) with a 19" standard-width. The enclosures are 2' x 2' to fit a standard reflected ceiling tile grid. The shelf system has universal mounting holes to easily bolt or tie down electronic devices. As an option, a rack rail kit can be purchased for installing rack mount installable electronic equipment. The optional CR222RR rack rail provides two rack units (2RU)

AmbiTILT - Easily load and service equipment

An AtlasIED advantage is the AmbiTILT mechanism with three methods to easily load and service equipment. For the first method, the shelf system has quick-release cane bolts. The two-(2) front cane bolts can be released and the entire shelf will tilt down towards the front. The shelf assembly is held in place by two safety cables and the two rear cane bolts. Being an ambidextrous design, the two-(2) rear cane bolts can be released in the same fashion and the rear section of the shelf will tilt downward for quick access to equipment's rear connectors. The third option allows an integrator to completely remove the entire shelf system by releasing the front and rear cane bolts followed by releasing the two safety cables via the quick-release locking pins.

Integrated AC Power Pack

The CR222-NR incorporates an integrated UL-listed power pack for powering the mounted electronic devices and data projector. There are five-(5) electrical outlets provided with standard 15 Amp Edison-style plugs. Four-(4) electrical outlets are located inside the cabinet and one-(1) outlet faces down and remains exposed when the door is shut. This allows a projector to be easily powered. The CR222-NR does not include PowerAWAKE technology. All the outlets are turned on or off by the exposed on/off switch.

The power supplies incorporate a whisper quiet fan assembly (24dBSPL A-weighted) for equipment cooling.

Multiple Punch-Outs for Electrical and A/V Connectors

The CR222-NR is built "Texas Tough" in AtlasIED's Texas-based manufacturing facility. Proudly made in America and built to last, 18AWG powder coated metal provides a strong and rigid assembly with decades of operational use. Another AtlasIED advantage, the cabinet side panels include four-(4) removable 4" square standard cover plates. There are two per side and each side has one cover plate with a single 11/2" knockout and the other plate with two double knockouts for 1/2" or 3/4" conduit connection. The provided cover plates can be replaced with an installer-provided custom plate with connectors such as an Ethernet jack, HDMI jack, NL4, XLR, RCA connectors and much more.
