Server cabinets are used to combine installation panels, plug-ins, boxes, electronic components, devices, and mechanical parts and components to form a whole box. The server cabinet consists of a frame and a cover plate(door), which generally has the shape of a cuboid and is placed on the ground. It provides suitable environment and safety protection for the normal operation of electronic equipment. This is a primary assembly second only to the system level. A cabinet that does not have a closed structure is called a rack. Server cabinet has good technical performance. The structure of the cabinet should have good stiffness and strength as well as good electromagnetic isolation, grounding, noise isolation, ventilation and heat dissipation. In addition, the server cabinet should have anti-vibration, anti-impact, anti-corrosion, anti-dust, waterproof, anti-radiation and other properties in order to ensure the stable and reliable operation of the equipment.
The cabinet was originally a specification of the electronic control instrument of the United States military. Its purpose was to unify the size of the instrument and facilitate the rapid assembly and replacement and maintenance. Finally, with the transfer of military technology, this specification was also widely adopted by the business community..
The advantage of the cabinet is that it provides the convenience of security protection and expansion of the chassis. It was often used in industrial control machines in the early days. In recent years, due to the development of the network, network communication equipment has also begun to be used extensively; Therefore, the types of products can be roughly divided into two categories: office and industrial products.
