Tips for using our rack diagram tool

Give it a try

Depending on the number of rack units and the hardware you are using, the setup of the equipment in your server rack can be very different. To find out the best way to cable your rack, just give it a try first in the digital rack planner. Have a look at the Rack Elevation and choose the hardware in our layout.


With the PATCHBOX, you can use up to 50% more space in your network rack. Thanks to a pulley mechanism inside the PATCHBOX cassettes, the retractable cables are being stored where they do not bother you – inside the cassettes. Therefore no horizontal or vertical cable managers are necessary, which gives you up to 50% more precious space in your rack. Choose a PATCHBOX in our simple rack planning tool and see for yourself.

Share & print it

After successfully creating your network rack, it’s time to share your server rack plan with your colleagues and print it. With our Server Rack Diagram Template, you can easily create a helpful guide on how to set up your rack. Follow the export and mount your network rack hardware accordingly. P.S.: Mounting is easier, faster and safer with the /dev/mount cage nut alternative. Request your free sample below.
