What is a 19″ rack?

FAQ Category:

A 19″ rack is the standard EIA-310 server rack. The term comes from the width of the equipment in the rack. The only dimension on a 19″ rack that actually measures 19″ is the width of the front panel of the rack mount equipment. This means the distance between the mounting flanges of a rack angle measures 19″ in order for rack mount equipment to fit.
