COMSEC Uni-Shelf
(Patent Pending)

IA Specialists has developed a unique COMSEC device shelfing solution that rigidly mounts various Type 1 COMSEC devices within a standard 1U IT rack space. The COMSEC Uni-Shelf is designed to support retention of several different vendors’ COMSEC products, and it also supports mixing and matching of various vendors’ products. This allows larger organizations to simply inventory a single shelf, and use it for several products/applications.

The COMSEC devices the COMSEC Uni-Shelf supports are as follows:

  • General Dynamics KG-175D (2 total)
  • Harris SecNet 54 (3 total)
  • Viasat KG-250 (2 total)
  • Viasat KG-250X (3 total)
  • Viasat IPS-250 (2 total)
  • Mykotronix KIV-7M (2 total)
  • Sypris KIV-19M (2 total)

Optional items for use with the COMSEC Uni-Shelf

IAS has developed several accessories for the COMSEC Uni-Shelf that address varying customer needs/requests. These include a quick release tray kit for a pair of General Dynamics KG-175D units, a full extension slide rail kit which allows you to access the back of your gear from the front of the rack, and we have even developed a 2U variant of the COMSEC Uni-Shelf for specific applications where additional clearance and rigidity was desired.

The IAS COMSEC Uni-Shelf 2U (Patent Pending)

In response to a customer request, IA Specialists has added a 2U version of the COMSEC Uni-Shelf to its offerings. This version of the COMSEC Uni-Shelf works EXACTLY the same way the 1U version does. This unit is simply 2U tall in order to provide added rigidity and to prevent a user from mounting another item directly above the COMSEC items. The 2U shelf is compatible with the KG-175D quick release tray kit.

The IAS KG-175D Quick Release Tray (Patent Pending)

The optional KG-175D quick release tray kit that allow you to install, and remove, the KG-175D easily with no tools! This kit includes 2 trays (one right and one left) and hardware for mounting 2 KG-175D units. The use of the quick release tray kit requires no tools, and only takes seconds to insert and remove KG-175D units once affixed.

The IAS Full Extension Slide Rail Kit

Lastly, responding to customer requests IA Specialists offers optional full extension slide rails for the COMSEC Uni-Shelf. These can be added to support users who would like full access to the front and back of their gear, but only have access to the front side of the rack. Note: these are NOT required if you wish to ridged mount the Uni-Shelf.
