    HP Procurve 2650

    I am currently in a bit of a quandry as I want to buy some of the mentioned model switches. However from what I've read they are 12.8" deep.

    Does anyone have one of these switches which can confirm how much cabinet depth is needed to have one mounted and cabled in (including power lead) as I suspect our wall mount comms cabinets are too small?

    A lot

    I have several of these installed and the last one I did I had to leave the door of the cabinet off as I couldn't close it. Luckily it is in a secured cupbaord.

    Yeah, from what I can see I will need to replace 3 of our wall mount cabinets as they are only 15.8" deep which doesn't leave much wiggle room if we do get the units in the rack. And we can't leave doors off as the cabinets are in class rooms

    Sigh, they don't cost that much but it is a hassle!!

    I have just had to change a load too

    The 2626 is equally deep!

    I did manage to get some cheap and cheerful cabinets from Oliis which did the job.

    The ones I'm eyeing up are Prism ones at around £120 each, which isn't too bad really. And they are relatively straight forward to mount so it shouldn't be too much hassle. It's either that or buy shorter switches!

    Re: HP Procurve 2650

    I started with the 4108 being too deep, then discovered that the 2648 was too deep, and then the 2848s. I now get the cabinet replaced with a 500mm (IIRC) deep cabinet that hinges from the back corner. Its still a tight fit with the power cord!

    Re: HP Procurve 2650

    So would you say that 450mm ones won't be deep enough? If thats the case then I'd need to replace 2 more!

    What if I use low profile power cables?

    Re: HP Procurve 2650

    Ive just remembered in one of my cabinets they wouldnt quite fit so I moved the bracket back so it was only secured by 2 screws on each side!

    500 is with low profile power cables and the fibre and cat5 cables squashed in at the front. You can try it, but I think you'll find it sticks out still. Don't forget its fibre patch + switch + power for depth!

    Damn console cable is on the back too, so you can forget about using that (I swing my cabs open to use it in emergencies)

    Re: HP Procurve 2650

    Have you thought of Right angled power connectors and Serial Leads? They will help reduce the depth neded?

    Oh yeah, you could just switch to another make instead if HP are that deep and harsh.

    Thats the issue. I want to use HP but if the switches are going to be a problem, size wise and need lots of cabinet replacements then I am thinking it isn't worth it and I'll just end up getting DLink ones again.

    Re: HP Procurve 2650

    Mine are squashed in with right angled power leads and I've been looking for some right angle adapters for the console leads so I can leave them in.

    I had enormous trouble with a 2626-pwr and I couldn't work out why it wouldn't fit after I installed the console cable and it was because it was hitting the back.
