Not all rack cabinets have the same depth. Some rack cabinets are shorter, some are deeper. That is the same with rackmount equipment. You never know what you are going to get until you actually install it in your cabinet. If you are lucky, it fits perfectly inside your rack cabinet. The chance are that your cabinet might be just a couple of inches deeper than your rackmount equipment supports. In this kind of situation, you will need a RACK EXTENDER. A rack extender is a pair “U” shaped brackets design to extend a section of the rear vertical mounting rails to reach your rackmount equipment's mounting brackets.
IAB108 is a universal depth adjustable rack extender. It is ideal for bridging gap between your rack equipment and your front or rear vertical mounting rail. The IAB108V10-4U comes with two brackets. The main brackets is using our IAB104V10-4U and a 5 inch rear “L” adjustable brackets. IAB108V10-4U includes all of the features offer by IAB104V10-4U. In addition, the rear “L” brackets feature oblong slots which makes IAB108 adjustable from 4.375 inch to 8.5 inch. Both brackets are joint together with 10-32 machine screws with nylon insert locknuts. The nylon insert lock nuts lessen the chance that the nuts will become loose due to vibrations.
