Dell R410 Rail Kit Overview and Installation Options

The Dell R410 Rail Kit uses the new Ready Rail design.  This design is is compatible with square hole racks as well as clearance hole racks.  Clearance hole racks have a non-threaded, 0.25″ round hole.  The attachment of the rail to the rack is on the front mounting surface instead of the the rear which has been the typical attachment method of Dell rails in the past.

The Dell R410 Ready Rails can be installed in a threaded hole rack using the RackSolutions adapter kit, P/N: 1UKIT-R4.  This adapter kit has a small bracket that is attached to the front of the rack.  This adapter bracket converts the round holes to square holes.  The rear section of the rail is replaced by a section that is compatible with round holes.  This kit slightly changes the over all installation depth of the server by moving the front attachment forward 7/8″.
