Aegis AV Cabinets’ founder Michael Kelley, realizes most homes do not accommodate for AV design. This issue requires installers to force equipment into pantries, cabinets, and closets, none of which were designed to protect electronic equipment against overheating. Even aftermarket installed fan kits fall short of supporting regulated temperature control and reducing dust buildup to ensure the longevity of the equipment inside.
Naturally Aspirated Filtered Cooling (Standard)
Aegis core mission is to ensure the longevity of AV equipment through proper thermal and dust management. The killers of all electronics are heat and dust, so all Aegis cabinets are HEAVILY vented with each opening covered in a special material designed to allow proper natural air flow through convection, while drastically reducing the amount of dust allowed to enter the cabinet and the equipment inside.
Digitally Controlled Filtered Cooling System (Optional):
Athena is designed to bring in filtered and conditioned cool air using ultra-quiet fans and ventilate it through the equipment while forcing hot air out. Each credenza is equipped with a “Dual-Zone” digital thermostat that allows customers to customize the operating temperature inside each individual compartment. Cool air is introduced, forcing hot air up through cross drilled ventilated shelves, and is drawn out through exhaust fans.
The Athena Series incorporates a standard naturally aspirated and filtered cooling, or optional dual-zone digitally controlled and filtered cooling system. It also features a separately cooled compartment designed to fit any standard size turntable along with a velvet lined charging nest equipped with a 4.8 amp – ultra high speed – dual USB charger.
Network Grade Surge Cancellation (Optional):
Each cabinet has the option to add a Tripp Lite ISOBAR 12 Ultra which features network grade AC surge protection with EMI/RFI noise filtering, or 3 choices of Panamax BlueBolt WiFi enabled power management systems. Power management outlets are flush against the inside wall of the “Cable Farm” and allows ample room for bulky transformers and power cables, keeping them completely out of site.
RGBW Lighting with Remote Control (Optional):
Create a scene with illumination effects to go along with mood or complement a special occasion. Choose from 3 million colors and several lighting effects to produce ambient lighting throughout the cabinet compartments and properly display equipment inside. Lighting can also be turned on and off by opening and closing the glass door. Each cabinet has an override switch to keep lighting turned on while the cabinet door is closed. Lighting system is stand alone and has a touch sensitive remote control.
Keyless Locking (Optional):
Keyless stealth locking allows customers to access and secure equipment inside using the numbered key pad. The lock allows for delayed automatic locking as well as assigning and removing user access via supervisor code.
Pivoting Base with Removable Rear Access Panel (Standard):
Athena is bedrocked on a locking and unlocking 360 degree rotating platform sitting on top of a reinforced solid steel frame. The design allows customers and integrators easy access to the removable rear panels to help keep from damaging equipment during installation and maintenance.
Modern Flat Panel Doors (Standard):
Doors are sanded ultra flat, stained, and finished with a high gloss or satin/flat finish.
Tempered and Polished Glass (Optional):
The glass is tempered and polished and comes standard in Grey tint.
