Supported racks and rack options

The frame and support rails are engineered for mounting into a 19 in (48.26 cm) wide front panel, 4-post cabinets, and racks that have been designed according to the EIA-310-D standard.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise rails are not compatible with tapped holes. There are two types of supported rail sets for the frame:

  • A set for square-hole front and rear mounting flanges
  • A set for round-hole flanges

The rails are compatible with a nominal rack-mounting depth of 29 1/8 in (73.98 cm), with an adjustability range of plus ½ in (1.27 cm) to minus 1 ½ in (3.81 cm). The rails will work in both a 42.32 in (1075 mm) and a 47.24 in (1200 mm) deep rack.

A 42U/47U rack supports up to four frames.

While the square-hole rail set is the standard option, either rail set supports a fully loaded frame weighing 550 lb (249.48 kg). Four of these frames together approach the 2,250 lb (1247.38 kg) internal IT equipment limit of both the HPE 42U x 600 mm x 1075 mm and the 42U 600 mm x 1200 mm 11000G2 Series QS racks.

NOTE: The HPE Synergy 12000 Frame is deeper than the c7000 enclosure by approximately 3.5 in (8.89 cm). 42.32 in (1075 mm) racks with side-facing PDUs might interfere with the frame. Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends using 47.24 in (1200 mm) racks.

Cables, PDUs, and other cable management hardware could increase the weight sufficiently to require the use of the HPE 42U x 600 mm x 1200 mm Intelligent Series QS rack, which supports 2,750 lb (1247.38 kg) internal IT equipment.
