30U server racks and floor standing data cabinets from Server Room Environments are designed to provide a safe and secure enclosure system for the protection of servers, IoT devices and Edge network peripherals. The 30U rack range includes 600mm and 800mm racks with depths from 600mm to 1200mm to accommodate a range of products and systems. Each rack or cabinet is made from steel and finished with a powder paint coating to provide a durable finish. Product options include front and rear door arrangements from steel to glass or mesh to assist cooling, as well as internal fittings for cable management, trays and shelves and blanking plates. A rack monitoring system can be built into the rack to monitor temperature, humidity and access.
When selecting a rack or cabinet there are several factors to consider.
A 30U rack or cabinet can house equipment whose total height when placed into the rack is no more 52.5inches or 133.35cm (13.34m) with 1U=1.75inches or 44.45mm. Care therefore has to be taken when selecting a rack to make sure that there cabinet height is sufficient to house the IT server, networking peripheral or IoT device.
The standard rackmount width is 19inches (482.6mm) and cabinets are typically available in 600mm or 800mm width. Most products will either fit to the front rack pillars using cage nuts onto flanges attached to the rack-mountable device, or slide rails running from the front to the rear pillars or sit on internal shelves or slide-out trays. Room should be left around the rack for adequate air flow and access.
The depth of cabinet available range from 600-1200mm. Care should be taken when selecting a rack depth to ensure that it is suitably long enough for the equipment to be housed including any necessary space for cables (bend radius) and connection access. How to manage cables is important for any rack size for easy cable identification and to avoid accidental disconnection.
The majority of server racks and data cabinets supplied are enclosed rather than open frames. An enclosed cabinet with a front and rear door and side panels is more secure and will provide with more efficient airflow management.
