Skinny Rack Kits

Kits include Rails, Tapped Strips, standard Rack-mount Ears, 40mm Lite Side Plates and hardware.
168HP Skinny Racks available on indent

Rails

Made from a high-quality aluminium they are irridium plated for improved electrical conductivity and anodised for a tougher surface finish and form the basis of any sub-rack. Each Rail has 1 x M5 tapped hole at each end. The addition of a Side Plate at each end allows the assembly to be secured from inside your enclosure. Rails have a slot towards the front to accept our Tapped Strips or Rack Nuts which must be purchased separately.
Other lengths up to 196HP available on request.
2 required per 3U section.
NOTE: Skinny Rails are physically 1HP longer than the quoted module spacing

Tapped Strips

Tapped Strips slide in to a dedicated slot near the front of the Rail and are used to accomodate module fixing screws and are tapped to take M3 module fixing screws. The design of the Tapped Strip allows them to be end-stackable to make longer lengths than the standard 84HP length.
We can also supply M3 Square Rail Nuts and Tapped Strips with M2.5mm tappings.

3U Ears

We offer 2 styles of Rack Ear:-
1) Standard Rack Ears: These are the type used in conventional 19" enclosures and allow the sub-rack assembly to be quickly installed and removed. Rack Ears require an additional 55mm over the module width of the rack.
2) Filler Ears: If you do not wish to use the conventional rack mounting method and/or require a narrower housing then Filler Ears can be used in place of the standard Rack Ears. Filler Ears have a narrower profile that does not include the M6 mounting holes. The sub-rack assembly is mounted from inside the enclosure using suitably sized countersunk screws. Filler Ears require only an additional 20mm over the module width of the rack.
NOTE: Ears MUST be used in conjunction with our 40mm Side Plates and cannot be fitted directly to a rail without them.

M5 Bolts

M5 Bolts required to attach Ears and Side Plates to the Rails.
The M5 Shallow Head must be used when fitting Filler Ears

Side Panel

Our Lite Side Plates can be 'reverse mounted' to allow the addition of either Rack Ears or Filler Ears. The complete sub-rack is only 40mm deep
Currently we support 3U, 6U and 9U Skinny Racks in this configuration
