Heavy equipment or equipment which is commonly accessed for servicing, for which attaching 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. 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.

Category:DIN The fans themselves can be difficult to replace. This prevents circular airflows where hot exhaust air is recirculated through an adjacent device and causes overheating. These posts are typically heavy gauge metal or extruded aluminum. The xin width and depth enables cabling to be routed with ease also helping to maintain bend-radius for fibre and copper cables and deeper equipment to be utilised.

The gap between the posts is millimetres Wikimedia Foundation servers as seen from the front. The distance of the right edge of the right mounting rail to the left edge of the left mounting rail is millimetres Common uses include server, telecom, broadcast video, lighting, audio, and scientific lab equipment. 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. For example, an oscilloscope might be 4U high, and rack-mountable computers are mostly between 1U and 4U high.

Nineteen-inch racks are also often used to house professional audio and video equipment, including amplifierseffects unitsinterfaces, headphone amplifiers, and even small scale audio mixers. Racks carrying telecom equipment like routers and switches often have extra width to accommodate the many cables on the sides.

Views Read Edit View history. When in place, the equipment may also then be bolted to the rack. Thus, a 1U rackmount computer is not 1. Dij server rooms will often group rack cabinets together so that racks on both sides of an aisle are either front-facing or rear-facing, which simplifies cooling by supplying cool air to the front of the racks and collecting hot air from the rear of the racks. The size denotes the width of the faceplate for the installed equipment.

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 Low-wattage devices may not employ active cooling, but use only passive thermal radiation and convection to dissipate heat. Each module has a front panel that is 19 inches Nineteen-inch racks in two-post or four-post form hold most equipment in modern data centersISP facilities, and professionally designed corporate server rooms.

Originally, the mounting holes were tapped with a particular screw thread. Rack-mountable equipment is usually designed to occupy some integer number of U. APC SX-range racksit is common for equipment that features 4-post mounting brackets to rin an adjustable rear bracket. The height of the different panels will vary, In other projects Wikimedia Commons. The holes are large enough to permit a bolt to be freely inserted through without binding, and bolts are fastened in place using cage nuts.

Road cases are typically made from chloride PVC laminated plywood sides, joined by extruded aluminum edging, steel corners, handles and latches.

They allow for dense hardware configurations without occupying excessive floorspace or requiring shelving. With the prevalence of inch racks in the Telecoms industry, the same practice is also common, but with equipment having inch and inch brackets available, enabling them to be mounted in existing racks.

Touring musicians, theatrical productions and sound and light companies use road case racks. A key structural weakness of front-mounted support is the shear stress placed on the rails and the leading edge of the equipment.
