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.
