47U Racks and Cabinets

47U server racks and floor standing data cabinets from Server Room Environments are one of the largest available and are designed to provide a complete and secure protective enclosure system for servers, IoT, Edge computing and networking devices. The 47U rack range includes budget and premium models which can be tailored for site applications. With internal depths from 600-1200mm, these 47U racks are designed to house standard 19inch rack mountable devices using slide rails, shelves or trays. Additional cabinet options cover lockable front and rear door types, cable management and blanking plates for efficient air flow management. Additional system components available include temperature, humidity and access monitoring, KVM switches, power distribution and rackmount UPS and battery trays.

47U Rack and Server Cabinets

When selecting a rack or cabinet there are several factors to consider.

Server Rack Height

A 47U rack height can house equipment whose total height when placed into the rack is no more 82.25inches or 208.92cm (20.89m) 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.

Rack Width

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.

Rack Depth

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.

Open or Closed Server Racks

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.
