24U enclosure for compact data centers
You can build enterprise efficiency into compact data centers with the Dell™ PowerEdge™ 2420 rack enclosure, which offers simplified component mounting and storage plus enhanced power management and effective cooling for a wide variety of IT equipment.
- Power distribution: Integrated trays offer toolless mounting for vertical power distribution units (PDUs)
- Cooling: Front and rear doors with 80% perforation allow air to flow smoothly
- Cable management: The rack design offers multiple cable-routing options
Exceedingly Strong and SecureWith a static load rating of 1,500 lbs, the 2420 rack needs no special infrastructure for many installations. It is available with stabilizer bars to secure the rack to the floor.
Lockable doors at the front and rear provide security in data centers, remote offices, wiring closets, factory floors and other environments.
Important New PDU Mounting FeaturesIn addition to U-space power distribution unit (PDU) mounting, the PowerEdge 2420 rack enclosure allows 0U PDUs to be mounted on either side or at the back along the doors — no tools necessary. With more space between the back panels of the server and the PDU outlets than previous Dell racks, the PDUs mounted along the rear doors won’t interfere with air circulation.
Made to Stay CoolThe 2420 rack is deeper than the previous generation of Dell racks (1071mm vs. 1000mm), so there’s more space for hot air to move outside. Flexible air dams help keep hot air from moving from the back to the front, a problem common in many racks.
For hot-aisle/cold-aisle thermally efficient datacenter topologies, its footprint matches standard 2-foot floor tile placement to optimise access to cold air.
A Bundle of Cable Management OptionsThe increase in size to 1071mm helps the 2420 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 reattached 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
