PowerEdge 24U Rack Enclosure
PowerEdge 2420 24U Rack Enclosure
The solid, versatile 24U DellTM PowerEdgeTM 2420 rack enclosure introduces important new power unit, cooling and cable options.
* More power distribution options than the previous generations of Dell racks
* Excellent Airflow – doors 80% perforated
* Additional cable routing options
With 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.
Exceedingly Strong and Secure
Lockable doors at the front and rear provide security in data centers, remote offices, wiring closets, factory floors and other environments.
In 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.
Important New PDU Mounting Features
The 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.
Made to Stay Cool
For hot-aisle/cold-aisle thermally efficient datacenter topologies, its footprint matches standard 2-foot floor tile placement to optimize access to cold air.
The 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.
A Bundle of Cable Management Options
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:
- Height 47.3" (1202mm)
- Width 23.82" (605mm)
- Depth 42.15" (1071mm)
