IQH1A 1RU Frame

The IQH1A enclosure offers high-density delivery of HD and SD modular solutions. The 1 RU enclosure accepts up to four “A” & now “B” single-width style SDI modules, two double-width style SDI modules. The IQH1A is available with hot-swappable dual redundant PSUs for maximum reliability. The enclosure is fitted with control and monitoring as standard, including full GV Orbit and SNMP control and monitoring functionality.


  • Four single-width or two double-width modules (or any combination)
  • Capable of accepting all types of IQ modules including HD-SDI, SD-SDI, AES and analog audio, analog video and fiber optics
  • Dual redundant power supplies (hot swappable) for high system availability
  • Optimum use of rack space — frames do not require any additional ventilation spacing
  • Plug-in GV Orbit enabled via gateway card with TCP/IP, RollNet, SNMP and RS-232/422/485 connectivity
  • In service replaceable cooling fans
  • Chassis monitoring, including inlet temperature, fan condition and module status
  • Full CE and UL compliance

Ethernet/SNMP compatible GV Orbit Gateway card for IQH1A enclosures

Notes: Although IQ modules are interchangeable between enclosures, each enclosure requires a suitable variant of panels: 

  • Either ‘A’ or ‘B’ order codes may be used when installing modules in the newer IQH1A enclosures 
  • When selecting ‘B’ build rear panels to fit into the IQH1A enclosure, please ensure features such as frame reference (if relevant to the module) are available on the rear since distributed reference is not supported in this enclosure
