Server Cabinet Size

Server cabinets are measured by a standardized measuring system called ‘u’ sizes, where one rack ‘u’ is 44.45mm high or 1.75 inches. It is important to note that this only measures the space between shelves on a rack.

Our server cabinets include convenient size markers

The first step is to establish what equipment will be used in the server cabinet. To calculate ‘u’s for non-rack mountable equipment, include its size and divide its height by 44.45mm. This equipment will take an additional 1u of shelf space.

Note that this is a measurement of internal space only and extra space will be needed to house the entire server cabinet unit. For example, a requirement of 1867mm of internal space warrants the needs for a 42u server cabinet. This cabinet will require between 250-300mm to cater to fan trays, castor and cable entry. Therefore a 42u server cabinet necessitates a 2120mm minimum working height.

Server cabinet width

Server cabinets are supplied in 600mm wide, and 800mm wide configurations and both have 19″ mounting angles for rack-mount equipment. Cable management is the determining factor in configuration selection.

Server cabinet depth

We supply server cabinets of 600mm, 800mm and 1000mm external depths. Maximum internal working space is typically between 100-150mm less than the above dimensions. For example, a server of 600mm deep requires a server rack of 1000mm to sufficiently house its equipment.

Example of server cabinet dimensions. For example, a rack designated as 20U has 20 rack spaces for equipment and has 35 (20 x 1.75.) inches of vertical usable space.

Server Cabinet Cooling

Server Cabinet Cooling

Ventilation is essential for the function of any server. Overheating may cause equipment malfunction. We supply a range of 4 fan indoor and outdoor ventilated cabinets in a variety of sizes with Tray S/Front and Rear Doors Plinth.

If you do not require a ventilated server cabinet, ensure that the room the cabinet is in is cool and ventilated.

How to protect your outdoor equipment – The ARIES IP55 Vented Server Cabinet

The ARIES IP55 Vented Server Cabinet

How to protect your outdoor equipment

Outdoor fibre server equipment is expensive, susceptible to harsh weather conditions and vulnerable to vandals and theft. When setting up your outdoor networks, it is vital to find the most secure, robust enclosure.

We have built, what is by far, the best, safest solution, the ARIES RANGE of IP55 Vented Server Cabinet.

Our IP55 Network Server Cabinet Protect your outdoor equipment from rain, dust and harsh elements

The Ventilated Network Server Cabinet is one of the most popular outdoor solutions for several reasons which include the following:

  • The ARIES RANGE of IP55 Vented 20U Server Cabinet has an IP55 ingress protection rating (IP) which ensures the server cabinet is dust and water resistant.
  • The server cabinet is also well ventilated to keep equipment running at the right temperature
  • It is powder coating to the highest standards for corrosion protection
  • It has a secure locking mechanism to keep equipment protected

Networking equipment generates heat and ventilation is essential. If networking equipment is not kept cool, it is prone to failure and a shortened lifespan. Damage caused by weather is not always immediately evident as a catastrophic meltdown – signs of heat damage include node crashes and hardware failures that can happen over a period of weeks or even months, leading to chronic downtime. The vented doors on the ARIES RANGE of IP55 Vented Server Cabinet draw in air through washable filters and exhausts it through the insulated roof keeping equipment in the optimal range. Other features of the ARIES RANGE of IP55 Vented Server Cabinet include

Product Features

  • Loading Capacity 1200kgs
  • Materials High-quality cold rolled steel
  • Thickness 1.6 mild steel
  • Mounting rails 2mm – 304 mild steel
  • Doors 1.6mm mild steel
  • Cooling Fan Four standard 120mm AC cooling fans
  • Doors Front and rear with built-in washable air filter

If you have a Fibre Installation project or outdoor network equipment, the ARIES RANGE of IP55 Vented Server Cabinets is just one of our many options available to you.
