What is a Rack Space or Rack Unit?

The height on 19″ racks are measured in multiples of Units or U, HE or RU depending where you are in the world, all of which are 1.75” (44.45mm) high.

Therefore a 3U rack is 3 x 1.75″ (3 x 44.45mm)
3 UNIT Rack = 5.25″ (133.35mm) high rack space for your equipment.
