Originally, the mounting holes were tapped with a particular screw thread. Portable rack cases using a rotary-molded polyethylene outer shell are a lower-cost alternative to the more durable ATA-approved case.
Rack-mountable equipment is traditionally mounted by bolting or clipping its front panel to the rack. For rack mounted computer servers, devices generally intake air on the front and exhaust on the rear. Two-post racks provide two vertical posts. The amount of motion and resulting stress depends on the structural characteristics of the building and framework 60279-1 which the equipment is contained, and the severity of the earthquake.
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 62097-1 omitted from the mounting rails. Occasionally, one may see fractional U devices such as a 1.
Retrieved from ” https: Touring musicians, theatrical productions and sound and light jec use road case racks. Threaded mounting holes in racks where the equipment is frequently changed are problematic because the threads can be damaged or the mounting screws can break off; both problems render the mounting hole unusable.
The distance of the right edge of the right mounting rail to the left edge of the left mounting rail is millimetres There is no standard for airflow and cooling of rack mounted equipment. Production of clearance-hole racks is less expensive because tapping the holes is eliminated and replaced with fewer, less 60297–1, cage nuts.
The height of the different panels will vary, To protect equipment from shock and vibration road rack cases use an inner and outer case. 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.
With the prevalence of inch racks in the Telecoms industry, the same practice is also common, but with equipment having inch ieec inch brackets available, enabling them to be mounted in existing racks.

These aisles may themselves be enclosed into a cold air 6297-1 tunnel so that cooling air does not travel to other parts of the building where it is 602297-1 needed or mixes 06297-1 hot air, making it less efficient. The height of a rack can vary from a few inches, such as in a broadcast console, to a floor mounted rack whose interior is 45 rack units End covers are typically secured with either a simple draw latch or a rotary cam “butterfly” latch, named for the shape of 60297-11 twist handle.
This page was last edited on 12 Decemberat Holes so arranged can either be tapped usually UNF thread, or, less often, 6mm metric or have square holes for cage nuts. 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.
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. An enclosed sealed cabinet with forced air fans permits air filtration to protect equipment from dust.
Equipment can be mounted either close to its center of gravity to minimize load on its front panel ied, or via the equipment’s front panel holes.
The inch rack format with rack-units of 1. The term relay rack appeared first in the world of telephony. A blade server enclosure might require 10U. Racks, especially two-post racks, are often secured to the floor or adjacent building structure so as not to 60297-11 over.
The gap between the posts is millimetres A pair of rails is mounted directly onto the rack, and the equipment then slides into the rack along the rails, which support it. Non-isolated cases simply mount inch mounting rails inside the case.
However, some rack equipment has been designed to make fan replacement easy, using quick-change fan trays that can be accessed without removing the cabling or the device from the rack, and in some cases without turning off the device so that operation is uninterrupted during replacement.
See also Industrial PC. A difficulty with forced air fan cooling in rack equipment is that fans can fail due to age or dust.
