The NetXtend™ Flex Series of integrated outdoor enclosures
delivers best-in-class performance and flexibility for a wide
variety of wireline and wireless applications. By leveraging
simplicity, flexibility and scalability across the platform,
the NetXtend Flex Series provides a rapidly deployable,
cost-efficient solution to service providers around the world.
As subscriber interest for the ever-increasing array of broadband service grows, more
and more sophisticated electronic equipment is being deployed in the outside plant. To
provide the proper protection and controlled operating environment for this sensitive
equipment and preserve the reliability of your network, Vertiv™ has developed the
NetXtend Flex Series of integrated outdoor enclosure solutions. Its flexibility enables you
to support a wide variety of OEM equipment with a single platform, under the wide range
of weather extremes, thermal and electrical issues, and physical stresses encountered in
the OSP environment.
By standardizing on the NetXtend Flex Series, you simplify network expansion and
reduce the burden of stocking service parts, with the confidence that you will be able to
deploy any OSP equipment--anywhere in your network – that the next generation of
technology is sure to bring.
Description
The NetXtend Flex platform is a proven
structural system, with integrated climate
control and power options. NetXtend Flex
enclosures are offered in a broad range of
standard sizes designated by the rack
unit (RU) capacity of the equipment
chamber. Sizes range from 8 RU (Flex 8)
to 43 RU (Flex 43). Single-bay, 2-bay and
4-bay enclosures are available as
standard configurations, with a variety of
door, base and side-chamber (SC)
options. Pad, pole and wall mount options
are offered.
Protection against destructive weather,thermal, electrical, environmental and mechanical
forces is vital to assuring the reliability and revenue-producing capability of your wireless and
wireline networks

NETXTEND™ FLEX SERIES
Typical Configurations
NetXtend™ Flex enclosures are
designated by rack units (RU): Flex 8,
Flex 12, etc. The height of the cabinet is
determined by the required rack space,
solar shield, and battery base or
plinth options.
The cabinet footprint (width and depth) is
determined by the number of equipment
bays (4 maximum) and side chambers (2
maximum). See Dimension Table on page
7 and 8.
A solar shield is standard on all NetXtend
Flex cabinets, which provides additional
solar protection. All NetXtend Flex
enclosures are constructed of
recyclable materials.
Enclosure Options
Materials and finishes
(remote and audible). Heat exchangers,
thermoelectric coolers, and fan/filter
climate systems are available with
+24VDC and -48VDC voltage inputs.
Exterior panels are aluminum, finished
with an off-white polyester powder
coating. The external frame components
are anodized aluminum. An optional
off-white polyester powder coating finish
for the frame is optional. All exterior
cabinet surfaces and components are
corrosion and UV resistant.
DC Power Systems
Racks
Fixed equipment racks are available in
both 23" (612 mm) and 19" (510 mm) sizes
with industry-standard EIA hole spacing.
Swing racks are standard options for
cabinets between 12 RU and 27 RU.
Additional swing rack options are available
upon request.
Climate controls/thermal
Door-mounted climate control options
include air conditioners (850 to 19,000
BTU) equipped with internal heaters,
air-to-air heat exchangers (1000W to
2800W), thermoelectric (Peltier) coolers
(200W per unit), and fan/filters. (See the
4
Table on page 10) Enclosures ordered
with thermoelectric coolers and air
conditioners incorporate insulation to
maximize cooling capacity.
Heat exchangers, thermoelectric coolers
and fan/filters are controlled by the
NetXtend Cabinet Controller that turns
fans on and off to maintain equipment
chamber temperature within designated
limits. It also reduces fan speed at low
load or low ambient temperature to
reduce power consumption and minimize
acoustic noise. The controller reports fan
failures and extreme high and low
temperatures as alarms. The controller
also monitors door intrusion alarms
NetXtend Flex enclosures may be
integrated with utilize NetSure DC power
technology to ensure the reliability of
every active OSP enclosure. NetSure DC
power delivers constant power to meet
load or recharge demand.Units are
available to provide -48 VDC and +24
VDC power equipped with distribution
options and low-voltage disconnect (LVD).
Flex enclosures are optimized for use with
NetSure 211, 502, 700 and 701 DC power
systems, ranging from 30 to 400 amps.
AC Systems
AC options include a 4x4 junction box,
power distribution panel/load center with
AC distribution to power shelf, and
GFCI-protected outlets.
Standardizing on a single enclosure platform increases your network reliability, leaves less chance
for errors, simplifies network expansion, and reduces the burden of stocking service parts and
repairing damage to panels, doors and other enclosure components.
Power tranfer switch
Protection panel options
NetXtend™ JuiceBox® PTS units are
available to provide primary AC surge
protection. The load center offers 100
amp or 200 amp main service. Numerous
configurations are offered, utilizing
switching, distribution and circuit
protection components from world-class
manufacturers. The PTS is manufactured
from weather-resistant exterior
components and can be mounted
adjacent to the NetXtend Flex cabinet. It
meets UL3R rainproof requirements.
Optional protection panel kits are
available for 100-pair, 200-pair and
400-pair panels to provide protection
from lightning strikes and other
over-voltage conditions.
Security systems
NetXtend Flex enclosure security systems
include quarter-turn cam latch or and
push-to-lock swing-handle door locks. All
locks include padlock hasps for additional
security. An intrusion alarm is offered with
local and remote indication.
Acoustics
Accessories
See “Climate controls/thermal” regarding
fan speed reduction to reduce noise.
Battery options
Internal and external battery
compartments and 19" or 23" battery
racks or battery shelves are available to
support 12 VDC 155 A-Hr front-post
batteries. Battery kits are rated at 100 Ah,
155 Ah and 190 Ah. Battery shelves are
normally sealed from the electronics
compartment. A battery heater pad kit is
optional.
Mounting options
Accessories include an emergency
generator connector and transfer system
(requires load center), smoke detector
and lighting.
All enclosures may be pad mounted.
Generic installation plinths with cable
entrance provisions and battery
compartment plinths are offered for pad
mountings. Pour-in-place pad templates
are available. Single-bay cabinets with up
to two side chambers may also be
pole-mounted. Pole mounting kits are

NETXTEND™ FLEX SERIES
Application
The NetXtend™ Flex Series of enclosures
houses a variety of next-generation
roadband electronic equipment for both
wireline and wireless outside plant
applications where physical protection
and environmental stability are required.
Enclosure Assembly,
Integration and Testing
Vertiv™ has the industry experience and
in-house product knowledge to
recommend, engineer, integrate,
implement and support NetXtend Flex
enclosures that you can confidently
deploy as your network grows. When we
configure a new Flex enclosure in one of
our regional configuration centers, we
integrate the climate control, DC power
and backup, alarms, accessories and
customer equipment. Prior to production,
a skilled test team operates the
completed enclosure in our thermal and
acoustic chambers. If necessary, we
modify the configuration to reduce the
chance of encountering any unexpected
glitches once the units are installed in
the field.
6
The local presence of a global organization
To be profitable, your wireline and wireless networks must be properly deployed and
