2410 rack old vs new style

Jump to solution

Does anyone have hands-on experience with both the old style (single rectangular logo) and the new style (dual circular logos) 2410 racks?  aside from the front and rear doors, are the rack bodies the same, or did dell make changes to them as well? 

 

Also, are the hinges mounted in the same place, so if i did have a new style door, i could put it on an older rack?

 

Thanks

10 years old - wow, didn't think they were that old.  I did acquire a rack with the rectangular logo and the Rapid Rails fit just fine (my primary concern).  the front door is reversible, but i'd have to pry off the logo and re-position it.  the back doors are actually a tail design on this box so there is no left-or-right issue.

bummer about the doors, i was hoping to swap out ones with the cool logo based on location and visibilty.  i very minor point indeed, but sometimes the imagery is worth a lot.

Thanks

One of the Dell Racks that we have has the round logo.  The front door can be installed on eithe side.  The rear has tail doors which can also be reversed if you want to do that for some reason.  The other Dell rack that we have is 10 years old.  This rack does not have any Dell logos on it, however the front and rear doors can be reversed if required.  Both of these racks, as well as all other Dell racks are manufactured by the Rittal Corporation. 

As far as the Rack bodies go, the Dell racks that we have are similar in some ways and significantly different in others.  The doors are completely different and could not be switched between the two.
