The rack mount units are designed for rack mounting in 19-inch racks. They are available in rack space options of 1U, 2U, 4U, etc. You should choose the most proper one depending on the space and port requirement of your project.
Sliding Type or Fixing Type?
The rack mount terminal boxes include two kinds. One is the sliding type, and the other incorporates a removable lid. The sliding type is more expensive while the fixing type is less expensive but requires the user to remove the whole box from the rack to gain internal access. If your budget is sufficient, I will recommend you to use the sliding type. Then you may get more benefits during installation and maintenance, as they respectively feature a convenient slide-out support tray so that you don’t need to remove the whole box from the rack to gain internal access.
