An Adaptive, Comprehensive and
Scalable Network Protection System
to Meet Ever-Changing Computer Support Needs
Liebert Foundation™ integration system is more than "just a
— it is the "foundation" of a mini-computer room.
It is designed to deliver maximum flexibility today and to
compre-hensively accommodate future support needs in
the rapidly changing network equipment environment.
It can start simply as a basic integration system
to house and organize network components. Or you
can specify it at any level of protection up to the
self-contained MCR (Mini Computer Room) by adding
support systems including computer-grade air
conditioning, UPS, monitoring capabilities and
The beauty of the system is that you don’t have to
do it all at once. These features can be incorporated
from the beginning or added at a later time to help
meet both your current and future requirements.
Evolving Design -
The Foundation system provides an organized,
secure, controlled environment for your sensitive
electronic equipment. A few of the major
improvements to the Foundation over previous
enclosure designs are:
• Adjustable Rack Rails
• Reversible Hinged Door
• Improved Cable Management
• Easy Access Side Panels
• Multiple Door Options
• Complete Upgradability
• Top or Bottom Mount ECM Unit
• Lower Noise Level
• Energy Saving Features
UNDER ONE ROOF
Based on the industry award winning Little Glass House®
design, the Foundation MCR self- contained integration
system brings together all of the elements necessary to
ensure the long-term viability of network components
or other critical electronics.
A load-sized, computer-grade air conditioner can be
located at either the top or bottom of the enclosure, driving
cool air through sensitive equipment on all levels. A back-up
cooling system ensures environmental security.
Power is supplied and protected through either a Liebert
GXT 2U on-line UPS or a PowerSure® Interactive UPS.
And with a built-in Liebert SiteNet® Integrator, the
Foundation MCR becomes an intelligent network
peripheral, capable of monitoring conditions and
initiating pre-set actions when problems arise.
Only Liebert offers a real choice of computer-grade cooling options designed to meet your most demanding protection needs.
For systems without ECM air conditioning, fan cooling provides enhanced heat removal. Either 1 or 2 "low noise" or
high ambient" fans can be factory installed – up to 5 fans can be installed in the field. Fans can be located either on
top or in the back panel of the Foundation.
Your Foundation Integration System is available with a Liebert ECM (Environmental Control Module). The ECM is
a self-contained, air conditioning system that provides 'round-the-clock cooling to components housed within
a Foundation enclosure. The ECM features low-noise operation--suitable for use in occupied spaces--and includes
an automatic condensate re- evaporation system. A hot gas by-pass provides automatic load matching and enhanced
ECM life. All systems utilize "green" R-407C refrigerant.
A BCM (Back-up Cooling Module) can be added to the ECM to insure cooling in emergency conditions. With the addition
of the Energy Saver Control the BCM can operate in "economizer" mode to save energy when conditions are right.
Foundation’s highly flexible
design accommodates varied
support installation and application
requirements. It is designed to
provide easy access for equipment
changes and relocation.
Foundation features Liebert’s full
line of computer-grade support
systems, including environmental,
power, monitoring and security.
Only Liebert has the capability to
integrate all this support. Foundation
provides “one stop shopping” for
protection with single-source
responsibility and complete
solutions — now and in the future.
Foundation has the flexibility
to accommodate both changes
in equipment and future growth.
It allows you to start with a basic
rack/enclosure configuration and
scale up in features and level of
protection – all the way to a Mini
Computer Room. The system also
provides significant cost savings
by permitting you to maintain and
build upon your original investment.
Options, add-ons, customization and/or upgrades are available for this system. Call or email Bruce for details and pricing.
