Exceedingly strong and secure

Exceedingly Strong and Secure

With a static load rating of 2,500 lbs and three sizes to choose from, the PowerEdge 4220 rack enclosure can provide the capacity you need to hold a full complement of data center equipment.

  • Standard (4220): 600mm wide x 1070mm deep
  • Wide (4220W): 750mm wide x 1070mm deep
  • Deep (4220D): 600mm wide x 1200mm deep

Stabilizer feet, included with the rack, attach to the front and sides of each 4220 rack enclosure for increased stability. Interconnect kits are available to link adjacent rack enclosures.

Lockable side panels and front and rear doors provide security for data centers, remote offices, wiring closets, factory floors and other server environments.
Important PDU mounting features

Important PDU Mounting Features

In addition to U-space PDU mounting, the PowerEdge 4220 rack enclosure has specially designed trays inside the rear doors to easily mount vertical PDUs, without using any tools, so they won't interfere with air circulation. The wide design of the 4220W moves the PDU trays even farther away from the rack’s frame, which reduces interference with installed equipment and cables.

Dell vertical-mount PDUs are available in a number of sizes and can be combined within a rack. The trays in the standard (4220) and wide (4220W) racks can hold up to four full-height or eight half-height units, while the deep (4220D) rack trays can accommodate twice as many.

Made to Stay Cool

The 4220 rack is designed to facilitate better airflow. The front and rear doors are 80% perforated, and flexible air dams help keep hot air from moving from the back to the front, alleviating a problem common in many racks. Dell’s wide rack enclosure employs extended air dams across the front to ensure proper airflow containment. Available blanking panels can further manage airflow for unused U-space in the rack.

For hot-aisle/cold-aisle thermally efficient data center topologies, the standard rack enclosure fits on two standard floor tiles, in a space 2' wide x 4' deep. The 4220W rack is slightly wider, and the 4220D rack is slightly deeper. Space planners can select the form factor that best meets data center needs.
Removable Tail-bars

A Bundle of Cable Management Options

The increase in size to 1071millimeter helps the 4220 rack accommodate servers with deeper dimensions, while still providing space for cable management. The large open base and dual side panels with removable sections on both sides provide more options for cable access.

Removable “tail-bars” at the top and bottom of the back frame eliminate a common obstacle to power and cable routing. The bars can be re-attached after the cables are in place.

Other access features include:
  • Dual rear doors
  • Reversible front door
  • Removable front and rear door
  • Rotating rear castors
  • Easily accessible leveling feet
