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 and a standard 600 mm wide x 1070 mm deep form factor, the Dell PowerEdge 2420 rack enclosure can provide the necessary capacity to hold a variety of data center equipment in a compact configuration.
Stabilizer feet, included with the rack, attach to the front and sides of each 2420 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 featuresIn addition to U-space power distribution unit (PDU) mounting, the PowerEdge 2420 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.
Dell vertical-mount PDUs are available in a number of sizes and can be combined within a rack. The trays in the standard 2420 rack can hold up to four half-height units.
A bundle of cable management optionsThe standard form factor for the PowerEdge 2420 rack enclosure accommodates servers with deep chassis dimensions while allowing space for cable management. The large open base and removable side panels provide more options for cable access.
Removable tail bars at the top and bottom of the back frame simplify power and cable routing. The bars can be reattached after the cables are in place.
Made to stay coolThe 2420 rack is designed to facilitate better airflow. The front and rear doors are 80 percent perforated, and flexible air dams help keep hot air from moving from the back to the front, alleviating a problem common in many racks. 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 2420 fits on two standard floor tiles.
Infrastructure for the efficient enterprise
For data center efficiency, Dell offers a range of accessories to help you further improve power management, enhance airflow and ease component mounting. Additional options include an equipment shelf and a 1U KMM (keyboard, monitor, mouse) console.
