Environ and the Environment

The thing with environments, is that you need to look after them. You need to ensure that you are careful with what you put in them, as a short term gain or a not so well thought out decision, could lead to a long term problem. Nowhere is this more true than the Data Centre space.

The new Environ SR range from Excel has some fantastic features for the Data Centre space. The 800mm wide range is a versatile rack fitted with a 70% wave vented front door and double vented rear doors. The rack has …

Data Centre Solutions by Excel… so what you got?

Neil Staley

Well, let me start with what I think you should get when someone says they do data centre solutions… To me it’s the ability to offer a comprehensive range covering all essential elements within a design and be able to offer them for varied situations and applications.

Well… with Excel you have Cat7a, Cat6a and Cat6 copper cabling. You get high density patch panels that help in all manner of scenarios. You get traditional fibre as well as a MTP pre-terminated solution.

Well that’s great regarding the infrastructure, but it needs to be housed…

Well… with Excel you can …

Days can go by so quickly… You can turn round at the end of a month and wonder where it’s gone, may be this is because a lot of time has passed where things have been running normally. Nothing really different has happened… Well not this month! I’ll remember the 27th of January for a long time!

The launch of the Environ range from Excel is a moment in industry and in my professional life, one that will stand out.  A moment when I’ll know where I was, a moment to remember, a moment when time seemed to slow… Why?  Because great moments …

Excel Demonstration Suites Updated With the Latest Products

Paul Cave

Hopefully most of our customers know that we maintain two demonstration suites, one in our London office and a larger and more comprehensive one at our Headquarters in Birmingham. What a lot of people do not realise is the extent of the systems that are housed within them along with the fact that they are available to our partners to book to show their customers around.

The process of revising and rebuilding them started many weeks ago, when we canvassed the views of all the Stakeholders; Sales, Product Management and Marketing, each one of which had a list of their …

Another step forwards, keeps us changing.

Neil Staley

Since the last time I was sat writing a blog, other developments within the Excel range make me think how right I was to start my journey into the blogosphere with the evolution of the range.

I can now talk to you about the extended PDU range which now offers C13 and C14 plug and socket variants as standard. This is a clear sign that the range adapts to its surroundings. Customers have called for the items to be introduced and sure enough the range morphs to fit the need.

We can also see changes to the cabinets offered …

New Excel Product Guide 2013 – 2014

Tracey Calcutt

After quite a few months of work we’ve now launched the new Excel Product Guide.

I’m really pleased with the finished catalogue, it not only looks great and is clean and easy to use, but we’ve actually added back in all of the products that are available from Excel, rather than just featuring our core best selling products and listing the full range on the website, which has been the case for the last couple of versions.  We’ve literally added in a further 80 pages!

This latest edition includes new products such as the Excel 0.5U panel, Excel Keystone V …

Excel Launches Two New Patch Panels


We’ve added two new Patch Panels to the Excel range, the first of which is the Excel 24 Port 0.5U Keystone Patch Panel which is designed as a high density panel allowing you to present up to 24 jacks in a 0.5U panel.  As the panel is only 0.5U in height it allows, by using two panels together, the ability to present 48 keystone jacks in 1U of rack space.  With the Excel 0.5U panel the jacks are all aligned the correct way up, most 48 port 1U panels require the bottom row of jacks to be mounted upside …
