Legrand Introduces Mighty Mo® 20 Rack System

05|19|2014

ORLANDO, FL., May 19, 2014 – Today at Cisco Live, Cisco’s annual IT and communications conference, Legrand (Booth 1921), a global leader in high performance network infrastructure hardware, introduced the Mighty Mo 20 rack system. This rack system accommodates both copper and fiber cabling and supports network equipment for any size LAN, SAN or data center. In an industry first, the Mighty Mo 20 rack system is available with an all-white rack and matching cable management, as well as standard black.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Mighty Mo product family, thus the name: Mighty Mo 20 rack system. Like all Ortronics solutions, the Mighty Mo 20® features flexibility, efficiency and superior design.


Flexibility. The Mighty Mo 20 system features a wide selection of products that provide complete flexibility for data centers and enterprise networks, including any size, any media and any equipment. Each rack is designed to protect permanent installations where cables have been pulled, terminated and tested in the back while the front provides easy access to connections that need to be changed regularly. There are 26 new racks, including 12 channel racks with hex perforations and 14 four-post racks. There are also 20 new vertical finger managers – 11 with slam latch doors and 9 with split covers – 18 new lightweight airflow baffles, and 4 economy managers with latches. Some 50 new accessories round out the Mighty Mo 20 line.


Efficiency. The Mighty Mo 20 system also offers unparalleled efficiency and performance. Deeper vertical managers with up to 40% more room and channel rack depths up to 30-in. provide improved capacity. Two-in. deeper fingers support higher density networks while bend limiting clips provide 180º protection. Mounting brackets accommodate both Cablofil® cable tray and ladder style cable runway. An enhanced hex pattern on all channel racks increases airflow and simplifies cable installation. Larger vertical managers increase efficiency by reducing patch cord congestion. A universal cable trough, zero-U horizontal managers, speednuts, washerless components and improved rack spacer bars also contribute to installation efficiency.


Design. The Mighty Mo 20 rack system has over 120 different innovations, many of which were suggested by end-users. “The design of the physical support infrastructure maximizes network performance by minimizing signal loss caused by improper cable support,” says Lars Larsen, Director, Physical Support Products for the Data Communications Division of Legrand. “What’s more, this design guarantees the flexibility necessary for future technology and growth and increases cooling efficiency through proper airflow management,” he adds.

“We believe the Mighty Mo 20 meets the needs of IT managers, designers and consultants who want to know that it will perform today and over the long term,” says Larsen.
