inch rack – Wikipedia

Road cases are typically made from polyvinyl chloride PVC laminated plywood sides, joined by extruded aluminum edging, steel corners, handles and latches. When rack rails are too thin to tap, rivnuts or other threaded inserts can be used, and when the particular class of equipment to be mounted is known in advance, some of the holes can be omitted 602977 the mounting rails.

The inch rack format with rack-units of 1. In the case of network equipment, it may be necessary to unplug 50 or more cables from the device, remove the device from the rack, and then disassemble the device chassis to replace the fans.

All Wikipedia articles needing words, phrases or quotes attributed Wikipedia articles needing words, phrases or quotes attributed from November Commons category link is on Wikidata. A ifc structural weakness of front-mounted support is the shear stress placed on the mounting rails and the leading edge of the equipment.

Racks are divided into regions, The hole pattern thus repeats every 1. According to Telcordia Technologies Generic Requirements document GRCORE, during an earthquake, telecommunications equipment is subjected to motions that can over-stress equipment framework, circuit boards, and connectors. Servers and deep pieces of equipment are often mounted using rails that are isc to the front and rear posts as above, it is common for such rails jec have an adjustable depthallowing the equipment to be supported by four posts, while also enabling it to be easily installed and removed.

As a result, 4-post racks have become common, with such racks featuring a mirrored 6297 of rear mounting posts.

These cases can be isolated by thick layers of foam or may use spring-loaded shock mounting. Rack-mountable equipment is usually designed to occupy some integer number of U.


When there is a large number of computers in a single rack, it is impractical for each one to have its own separate keyboard, mouse, and iecc. The earliest repeaters from were installed in ad-hoc fashion on shelves, in wooden boxes and cabinets.

Heavy equipment or equipment which is commonly accessed for servicing, for which attaching or detaching at all four corners simultaneously would pose a problem, is often not mounted directly onto the rack but instead is mounted via rails or slides.

The inch dimension includes the edges, or “ears”, that protrude on each side which allow the module to be fastened to the rack frame with screws. Common uses include server, telecom, broadcast video, lighting, audio, and scientific lab equipment. A variety of airflow patterns can be found, including front intakes and rear exhausts, as well as side intakes and exhausts.

See also Industrial PC. Larger cases are further reinforced with additional plywood or sheet metal. A inch rack is a standardized frame or enclosure for mounting multiple electronic equipment modules.

The strength required of the mounting posts means they are invariably not merely flat strips but actually a wider folded strip arranged around the corner of the rack. There is no standard for airflow and cooling of rack mounted equipment.

This page was last edited on 12 Decemberat Racks, especially two-post racks, are often secured to the floor or adjacent building structure so as not to fall over. The posts have holes in them at regular intervals, with both posts matching, so that each hole is part of a horizontal pair with a center-to-center distance of Tapping large numbers of holes that may never be used is expensive; nonetheless tapped-hole racks are still in use, generally for hardware that rarely changes.

This gap allows a bit of room above and below an installed piece of equipment so it may be removed without binding on the adjacent equipment. When in place, the equipment may also then be bolted to the rack. This of course varies by manufacturer, the design of the rack and its purpose, but through common constraining factors such as raised floor tile dimensionsthese dimensions have become quite common. Non-isolated cases simply mount inch mounting rails inside the case.

Newer server rack cabinets come with adjustable mounting rails allowing the user to place the rails at a shorter depth if needed. For example, an iiec might be 4U high, and rack-mountable computers are mostly between 1U and 4U high. Older equipment meant for round-hole or tapped-hole racks can still be used, with the use of cage nuts made for square-hole racks.


APC SX-range racksit is common for equipment that features iex mounting brackets to have an adjustable rear bracket. The rails may also be able to fully support the equipment in a position where it has been slid clear of the rack; this is useful for inspection or maintenance of equipment which will then be slid back into the rack.

The height of the different panels will vary, The cases typically use extruded aluminum bands at the ends of the body with tongue-and-groove mating to like bands for the covers. A blade server enclosure might require 10U. In contrast to the “inch world”, ETSI also defined the size of the rack enclosure: The First Stored Program Computer.

Racks carrying telecom equipment like routers and switches often have extra width to accommodate the many cables on the sides. The term relay rack appeared first in the world of telephony.

A rack’s mounting fixture consists of two parallel metal strips also referred to as “posts” or “panel ifc standing vertically. A standard inch server rack cabinet is typically 42u in height, 19 inches These cases are marketed to musicians and entertainers for equipment not subject to frequent transportation and rough handling.

Larger cases typically have wheels for easy transport. To protect equipment from shock and iecc road rack cases use an inner and outer case. List of International Electrotechnical Commission standards.

Hole spacing is 25 millimetres 0.

19-inch rack

Touring musicians, theatrical productions and sound and light companies use road case racks. For rack mounted computer servers, devices generally intake air on the front and exhaust on the rear. Square-hole racks allow boltless mounting, such that the rack-mount equipment only needs to insert through and hook down into the lip of the square hole.

Four-post racks allow for mounting rails to support the equipment at the front and rear.
