Dell's commitment to large enterprise customers includes offering the infrastructure and accessories that companies need to complement their server installation. The fixed rack equipment shelf provides a stable location for storage within a rack.
The Dell Fixed Rack Equipment Shelf has been enhanced to provide more flexibility in rack support; more options for rail attachment; and more loaded weight capacity. The heavy-duty steel the shelf also includes slots to facilitate cable management
Extensive Rack Support
Dell now provides more choices- the fixed rack equipment shelf can be mounted into a wider range of rack types and configurations. The shelf fits easily into the Dell PowerEdge 2420 and 4220 racks; as well as previous generation Power Edge 2410 and 4210 racks; with square holes using tool-less rails. The shelf design also supports installation in third-party racks with round holes; square holes; or threaded holes. Additionally; the shelf can be placed into both four-post and two-post racks; with appropriate rail configuration. In the two post racks; the installation may be positioned as either center mount or flush mount.
Depending on the type of rack installation; the rail lengths are adjustable to various ranges of lengths. Additionally; the shelf's rails can be used in either a tool-less or tooled configuration. With tool-less installation; the shelf can be quickly and easily mounted into a standard unthreaded round-hole or square-hole rack. With a minor adjustment (described in the shelf installation guide); the rails can be converted to tooled use for flush-mount or center-mount installation in two post or four-post racks; including threaded four-post racks.
The larger load capacity of the shelf can accommodate more equipment within the rack. In most rack installation configurations; the shelf can support a loaded weight capacity up to 200 pounds; doubling the capacity of the previous shelf. When installed as flush-mount in a two-post rack; the shelf load maximum is 100 pounds. Refer to the installation guide for guidance on loading.
Easy Cable Management
The rack kit comes with two hook-and-loop straps for securing cables. These straps can be easily threaded through the slots on the shelf to consolidate and route cables along a safe path for easier management.
