PowerEdge 42U Server Rack Enclosure
PowerEdge 4220 42U Server Rack Enclosure
The solid, versatile 42U DellTM PowerEdgeTM 4220 rack enclosure introduces important new power distribution, cooling and cabling options
* More power distribution options than the previous generations of Dell racks
* Excellent Airflow – doors 80% perforated
* Superior design facilitates more cabling options
With a static load rating of 2,500 lbs; the 4220 rack needs no special infrastructure for many installations.
Exceedingly Strong and Secure
It is available with stabilizer bars to secure the rack to the floor or ‘ganging kits’ to bolt it to adjacent racks.
Lockable doors at the front and rear provide security in a wide range of environments such as data centers, remote offices, wiring closets or even factory floors.
In addition to U-space power distribution unit (PDU) mounting, the PowerEdge 4220 rack enclosure allows 0U PDUs to be snapped-in 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 4220 rack is designed for better airflow with 80% of the front and rear doors perforated. It’s deeper than previous Dell racks (1071mm vs 1000mm), so there’s more space for hot air to move out of the rack. 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 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.
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 78.7" (1999mm)
- Width 23.82" (605mm)
- Depth 42.15" (1071mm)
