Hi Gabriel,

That information is readily available in the datasheet. I'm copying a snapshot here for your convenience. 1RU = 1.75" so BD8806 is 10 RU and BD8810 is 14 RU

Thanks a lot Daniel.

Also, one thing to note is that depending on where your power source is, you may want to leave one rack unit free below the chassis to run power cables through.

Good call, Brandon - that's how we did the labs here 🙂

That's where I got the idea!

You only make the mistake of racking a chassis at the bottom of a rack only to realize that the power cables can't get to the PSUs once!
