APC NetShelter SX 42U Enclosure 23.6" Wide x 42.1" Deep (600 x 1070mm)

Standard enclosure for low to medium density server and networking applications. Compact width to optimize data center space. 42U height to easily roll through doorways.


Integrated with InfraStruxure Products Schneider Electric cooling, power distribution, and cable management products work seamlessly with IT enclosures to provide a complete infrastructure support system.
Schneider Electric Rack Systems Compatible Compatible with a variety of Schneider Electric rack accessory products to provide the ability to create a complete rack system. Configure rack solutions using industry leading Schneider Electric Design Portal - Small IT Solution Designer configurator complete with verification of product compatibility and useful 3rd party equipment catalog to aid in visualizing your ideal rack solution.
Optimized for High Capacity Cable Management Systems NetShelter SX enclosures are optimized for use with high capacity cable management systems that attach to equipment mounting rails inside enclosures aligning with equipment mounting u-spaces and provide channels for routing and managing cabling.
Vendor-Neutral EIA-310 19in Rack Mounting Compatibility Guaranteed Vendor-neutral mounting for guaranteed compatibility with all EIA-310 compliant 19" equipment. The "Fits Like a Glove" money back guarantee provides peace of mind that all of your EIA-310-E compliant rack-mount equipment will physically fit in a NetShelter.


Cable Access Openings with Pre-Installed Brushes Large cable access slots in the roof provide access for overhead cable egress. The bottom design allows for unobstructed cable access through a raised floor. Roof includes openings with brush strips pre-installed in locations biased towards the front of the enclosure to allow for data cable pass through and provisions for air containment.
Simple Selection No need to spend hours choosing from and compiling dozens of part numbers to create a single enclosure. Schneider Electric has made it easy by handling the details and providing complete enclosures with single part numbers.
Perforated Front Door with Curved Profile Perforated front and rear doors provide ample ventilation for servers and networking equipment. Front door perforated area is optimized with a curved profile to provide greater surface area and allowance of more perforation coverage and higher perforation rating.
Quick Release Doors Front door can be moved to the opposite side or interchanged with rear doors. Doors are easily removed with simple lift-off design.
Half-Height Side Panels with Brush Strips Option for Pass-Through Half-height quick release side panels reduce size and weight for easy handling and access to equipment. Side panels are lockable utilizing a single key with the doors. Now available: side panel options integrated with pass-through holes and brush strips for routing cabling to adjacent racks in a row while still maintaining proper airflow.
Easily Removable Cable Access Roof Roof can be removed with simple pull-pin hinges for access during equipment installation or even with cabling already in place and routed through the cable openings. Once removed the roof is reversible to reposition the larger cable openings for power distribution plugs and connectors.
Eyebolt Support Integrated into Enclosure Frame Integrated eyebolt holes at the top of the enclosure frame allow the enclosure to be lifted for movement and enclosure placement using eyebolt lifting mechanisms. Refer to enclosure user documentation for detailed specifications on eyebolt requirements and enclosure weight limits.
Equipment Mounting Rails Integrate with Patch Cabling Systems Equipment mounting rails include zero U mounting holes beside the EIA 19" mounting space that allow the installation of Data Distribution Cable (DDC) patch systems without taking up any critical equipment U-space. AV and Networking enclosure designs do not include hole locations for integration of DDC cabling. Other 1U, 2U, and rear enclosure zero U options are available for use with these enclosures.
Enclosure Adjustment Tools and Hardware Provided All enclosures are provided standard with hardware bag that includes hardware for mounting IT equipment and tools for simple enclosure adjustment.


Pre-Installed Full-Enclosure Height Rear Accessory Channels Integrated and adjustable rear accessory channel provides zero U mounting locations for toolless accessories. Each channel has two mounting bays to support a combination of up to four accessories such as PDUs and vertical cable organizers. 42in. (1070mm), 32in. (825mm), and deep enclosures and networking enclosures include two channels. 48in. (1200mm) deep enclosures include four channels. Channels are pre-installed at the factory in the rear of the enclosure but can be moved to other locations of the enclosure along the side brace to re-situate cable management where it is needed most.
Adjustable Mounting Rails with Captive Hardware and Rapid Alignment The vertical mounting rails can be adjusted in 1/4in. (6.4mm) increments covering virtually any mounting requirement for IT equipment. Easy alignment feature integrated into the enclosure mounting rail and side brace for quick alignment verification without the use of tools to verify alignment. U positions are numbered front and back for rapid installation of equipment.
Split Rear Doors Split rear doors improve access and serviceability to rear of rack mounted equipment. The split rear doors help to maximize floor space. Only 11 inches (279mm) of clearance is required behind the enclosures to allow for door swing.
Low-Profile Casters and Adjustable Leveling Feet from Underneath or Above Enclosures are shipped standard with both leveling feet and casters. Leveling feet can be quickly adjusted through the use of a screwdriver or drill, eliminating the need to reach underneath with a wrench.
Integrated Joining Hardware with Multiple Width Enclosure Alignment
Enclosures include pre-installed joining hardware to join enclosures in a row and provide additional stability to the enclosure. The pre-installed joining hardware includes holes for joining to an adjacent enclosure at 600mm centers or 24in. centers depending upon the floor layout.
Special Packaging Options for Shipping Rack with Equipment Mounted Enclosures with shock packaging are standard enclosures with provisions in the packaging design and enclosure assembly for shipping the enclosures with equipment mounted inside. Check for enclosure size options and availability.
Enclosure Assemble-to-Order (ATO) Options Capable The Enclosure ATO (Assemble-to-Order) options provide a level of customization for enclosure customers beyond the standard enclosure models. This customization is limited to the assembly of the enclosure itself and does not include additional enclosure mounted components. For example, the enclosure can be assembled without sides, doors, or without sides and doors. Check for enclosure size options and availability.


Designed for Enhanced Structural Stability A proven frame design, heavy-gauge mounting rails, and heavy-duty casters provide for 3000-pound (1364kg) static (leveling feet) and 2250-pound (1023kg) dynamic (caster) load ratings. Enclosures have been tested and approved to be combined with proper bolt down accessories to meet various seismic requirements. Check for product documentation for specific requirements.
Integrated Electrical Grounding The roof, side panels, and front and rear doors are grounded to the frame of the enclosure. Eight additional electrical grounding inserts are located on the frame for external grounding.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat cabinet

Pros: I've used about two dozen of these in my company's software test lab (I'm the admin) and they're so easy to work with, especially when moving a bunch of equipment into one all at once. Just take the sides and doors off, and have fun being able to access your cables anywhere you need. The sides are also adjustable if you have short rails or shelves to mount. The PDU mounts are also great with APC PDUs. Just click those suckers in place and you're set. I use the AP8841 PDUs, which work quite well.

Cons: it is a bit light. It will handle 2250lbs on the wheels and 3000lbs on the feet, (I've pushed one to the limit on wheels with 4 Dell R910s and 6 16 drive LSI storage arrays) but it can feel a bit 'light' (if you know what I mean) when moving the rack when it is close to capacity. It flexes a little when getting pushed. Oh, it will still hold, but it just feels light. Just be careful.

Other Thoughts: Be warned, though, if you tie the cables together in a spot you can't access without the side panels off, you may have to leave the cables there if one goes bad.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and In one piece.

Pros: Ordered on the 15th Arrived on the 21st.
AIT/JIT shipping is excellent.
We use this rack extensively for all our clients.
Perforated front and back cabinet doors=excellent circulation.
deep enough for all equipment.
good looking.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: We have ordered these units from other cheaper sources but had many units arrived damaged and bent. Wasting time and resources getting it all sorted out. Newegg delivered in 6 days from order date in perfect condition.
For this it is worth spending a few $$ more. Highly recommend AIT/JIT shipping.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat cabinet

Pros: I've worked in data centers and have done data center build outs for the last 12years. I'm a big fan of plain open racks like Chatsworth makes. But the powers that be always want cabinets because they believe they will look better. If you have to buy a cabinet get the APC. It has superior cooling compared to its competition and the removable nut system assures that you won't end up with a cross-threaded useless portion of the cabinet. There is also ample room in the back of the rack now for power stripes/etc. These new cabinets are REALLY deep.

Cons: "AIT in home delivery" apparently translates to dropping it off in the alley attached to a pallet with bolts :(

Spring for the extra "white glove" delivery option. Luckily the cabinet had wheels, and it was concrete all the way from alley to elevator to office. We popped all the sides and doors off to reduce the weight significantly before we rolled it.
