What is 19 inch Racking?
A 19 inch Rack is a standardised frame or enclosure for mounting multiple electronic equipment modules. Each module has a front panel that is 19 inches (483 mm ) wide. The 19 inch dimension includes the edges, or “ears”, that protrude on each side which allow the module to be fastened to the rack frame with screws. Common uses include server, audio, and scientific lab equipment.
The height of the modules is standardized as multiples of 44.45mm. A module 44.45mm high is described as being 1U high. A module 88.9mm high is 2U high and so un. Standard Rack Cabinets are 42U high.
Examples of common 19 inch trays designs.
19 inch Rack , Front Panel Design.
A tray with a Front Face allows components to be hidden except for their controls or status indicators.
In this example components are mounted on the rear of the Front Panel. Standard 1U high Mounting Flanges are screwed to the tray.
This can also be designed in different “U heights” and different depths.
