Fully Integrated Close-Coupled Cooling Solution

Legrand and OptiCool Technologies® have joined forces to provide the most advanced close-coupled cooling solution on the market today, reducing in-room cooling energy up to 95%.  You can find three OptiCool-Ready Legrand products, the GX Cabinet System, the LX Cabinet System and the 22" W Barracuda Equipment Cabinets. 

When combined with the built-in airflow efficiencies of the GX Cabinet System, this fully integrated solutions offer maximum energy efficiency, capacity and redundancy, by removing the heat from the computing equipment exhaust air out the back of the cabinet.


The fully integrated LX Cabinet System offers maximum energy efficiency, capacity and redundancy, by removing the heat from the computing equipment exhaust air.  The cabinet allows for cooling multiple cabinets using a single OptiCool door, which lowers initial install costs.


Barracuda Equipment cabinets are the ideal foundation to keep pace with continually evolving Broadcast and Cable Headend environments. The Barracuda Equipment Rack provides an adaptable, robust platform to manage ever-changing hardware, power, grounding, isolation, cabling, and thermal issues associated with new technologies.
