Need help finding decent & affordable rails for my server rack - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
Sorry one more question.... I'm looking at buying this PDU

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=12-220-043&IsVirtualParent=1

Do I need rails to mount this? Seems a little silly to have to buy rails to mount that...

No need for rails and I doubt you could even fit it on them anyway.

I want to say you only need ears(2 piece of L shaped metal that you screw on it and then on the rack) like a switch would have, but I have actually no idea how mine is fixed on my rack since it came with it and it's on the back which is hard to access.

If nobody else answer in the next few hours I'll let you know when I get back home.

Seeing that it's 20" long, and a standard rack is 10" wide, I don't know if you will be able to slap ears on it and mount it in a 1U spot.

Most PDUs, and even some KVMs, are mounted in what is called the 0U area. 0U equipment mounts to the side of the rack, not taking up and rack unit space.

Maybe this will help:

Its actually only 17.5" wide and listed as 1U and my server is 17.2", enclosure is like 19" wide internally and 24" wide externally... Where did you get that standard racks are only 10" wide?

My mistake. That was supposed to say 19" wide, not 10". 9 and 0 are close to each other. smile.gif

I guess dimensions on Amazon were wrong as well, since they say it was 20". I see on the vendor site that it's actually 17.5". I do see that it's listed as 1U, but I was also suggesting that you could mount it 0U and not take up a rack unit.

It is indeed hold by mounting brackets(ears).

And according to the pdf on this website at the bottom of the description, there's 4 way to install it(page 4 and 5): http://rackmountpowerpros.com/Cyberpower-PDU20B10R-Basic-PDU

You are correct in assuming that you won't need any rails to mount the shallow equipment, especially those. Most anything less than 10-12" deep and less than 2U won't require rails. All of our swiches/firewalls and things of that nature are just secured with the ears they were supplied with.
