RackSolutions 2Post conversion brackets one key issue with 2Post racks, mounting 4Post equipment. Rather than purchasing a 4Post rack for only a few pieces of equipment, conversion brackets allow 4Post equipment such as servers using 4Post rail kits to be mounted in a 2Post rack. The 2Post conversion brackets essentially convert a small amount of space in your 2Post rack into a 4Post rack.
If your server rack has a 27″ mounting depth, and the Dell PE1750 Rail Kit has a minimum mounting depth of 28 3/8″, it is possible to install the PE1750 into your rack. You will need a set of adapter brackets that will extend the mounting depth of your rack. These brackets are available in a variety of sizes or as a kit. If you are only 1 3/8″ from installing your Dell PE1750 Rails you will only require 2 small 2″ brackets. These brackets will extend your Server Rack mounting depth to 29″ which is within the mounting depth range of the Dell PE1750 Rail Kit. Here is the PE1750 Installed in 27″ deep rack using a 1UBRK-200 Adapter Bracket.
