1 Product Comparison
1.1 Overview
The Dell™ PowerEdge™ R410 is ideal for compute-intensive applications in space-constrained
environments. It is a powerful, ultra-dense 2-socket 1U server that offers the performance of Intel®
Xeon®
processor 5500 and 5600 series, DDR3 memory, and the availability of up to four hard drives
(3.5‖ or 2.5‖), and is an exceptional value.
The PowerEdge R410 features include an available ―open‖ HPCC (High Performance Computing
Cluster) software stack, excellent diagnostics with an interactive LCD, and an optimum chassis depth
of 24‖ for space-constrained data centers and HPCC environments.
The Dell PowerEdge R410 was developed with a customer-inspired design, energy-optimized
technology, advanced virtualization capabilities, and simplified systems management.
1.2 Design for Usability
The PowerEdge R410 follows the 11th generation PowerEdge portfolio specifications and features the
same system design commonality and reliability true to the entire portfolio. All 11th generation
servers are designed to make the user experience easier. We put all external ports, power supplies,
LCD screens, and LED lights in the same location for familiar experience as well as easy installation
and deployment.
Robust, metal hard drive carriers and organized cabling are designed to help improve component
access and airflow across the server. The PowerEdge R410 provides reduced complexity, showcasing
clutter-free cable routing for more efficient airflow and easier maintenance. An LCD screen
positioned by the front of the bezel provides aisle-level access to deploy the server.
1.3 Energy Efficient
The PowerEdge R410 features energy-tuned technologies that reduce power consumption while
increasing performance capacity so you can compute more while consuming less. It incorporates
Energy Smart design using low-flow fans and logical component layout of the internal components
which aids with airflow direction and policy-driven power and thermal management, helping to keep
the server cool and reduce noise as much as possible. A robust fan cage design with hot-plug, single-
pull fan modules provides efficient airflow and eases maintenance. Energy efficient and compact,
the PowerEdge R410 is designed with value and reliability for HPCC environments.
1.4 Easy to Manage
With the optional advanced embedded systems management capabilities of Lifecycle Controller, Dell
provides comprehensive enterprise class manageability already on the motherboard. Lifecycle
Controller is delivered as part of the optional iDRAC Express or iDRAC Enterprise in the PowerEdge
R410. The Lifecycle Controller helps to simplify administrator tasks by performing a comprehensive
set of provisioning functions such as system deployment, system updates, hardware configuration and
diagnostics from a single intuitive interface called Unified Server Configurator (USC) in a pre-OS
environment. This helps eliminate the need to use and maintain multiple pieces of disparate CD/DVD
media.

PowerEdge R410 Technical Guide 8
Also part of the Dell OpenManage™ portfolio is the Dell Management Console which is included with
every Dell server and provides IT administrators with a consolidated console view of their IT
infrastructure. This console delivers a single view and a common data source into the entire
infrastructure management. It has an easily extensible, modular foundation that can provide basic
hardware management or more advanced functions, such as asset and security management. Dell
Management Console is designed to reduce or eliminate manual processes, enabling you to save time
and money for more strategic technology usage.

Security
3.10.1 Cover Latch
The PowerEdge R410 comes with a coin lock entry latch on the top cover of the unit and provides
security for the entire system. Also, the lock provides for toolless access to the chassis. For specific
information regarding the opening and closing of the system, see the Opening and Closing the System
section in the Installing System Components chapter of the PowerEdge R410 Hardware Owner’s
Manual.
3.10.2 Bezel
A metal bezel is an available option and is mounted to the chassis front to provide the Dell ID. A lock
on the bezel prevents un-authorized access to system peripherals and the control panel. System
status (via the LCD) remains viewable with the bezel is installed. For specific instructions regarding
the operation of the bezel, see the Removing and Replacing the Optional Front Bezel in the Installing
System Components chapter of the PowerEdge R410 Hardware Owner’s Manual.
3.10.3 Hard Drive
Hot-Plug Hard drives are only accessible by opening the bezel, thus locking the bezel secures the
hard drives. Cabled Hard drives are only accessible by opening the top cover, thus locking the top
cover will secure the hard drives.
See the Hard Drives section in the Installing System Components chapter of the PowerEdge R410
Hardware Owner’s Manual for information.
3.10.4 Trusted Platform Management (TPM)
The TPM is used to generate/store keys, protect/authenticate passwords, and create/store digital
certificates. TPM can also be used to store the BitLocker keys for hard drive encryption feature in
Microsoft®
Windows Server®
2008. TPM is enabled through a BIOS option and uses HMAC-SHA1-160 for
binding. In China, S-TPM (Socket TPM) is used.
3.10.5 Power-Off Security
The control panel is designed so that the power switch cannot be accidentally activated. The lock on
the bezel secures the switch behind the bezel. In addition, a setting in the CMOS setup disables the
power button function.

4 Power, Thermal, Acoustic
4.1 Power Supplies
The R410 is powered by a non-redundant 480 W power supply (Dell P/N F238K) and redundant 500 W
power supply (Dell P/N F649J).
The power supply has automatic input voltage detection. An auxiliary power-out receptacle is not
provided on this unit.
The power supply in the chassis has been rated as 82%, efficient at 20%, and 100% load, and 85%
efficient at 50% load under 115V AC input line. Redundant power efficiency is 88% at 20% load, 100%
load, 92% efficiency at 50% load under 230V AC input line.
The base system includes a single 480 W power supply. This unit provides power to the PowerEdge
R410 planar, the four internal hard drive bays, and one slim optical disk drive bay. Power is soft-
switched allowing power cycling via a switch on the front of the system enclosure or via software
control (through server management functions). The power system is compatible with industry
standards, such as ACPI and Server 2000.
The VRD is integrated onto the planar and is not field upgradeable. The VRD follows Intel’s VRD11.1
specification. The PowerEdge R410 uses a four-phase design.
4.2 Power Supply Specifications
Single – 480 W power supply
Redundant – 500 W power supply
There are two separate power supply connectors on the planar: an ATX connector (2x12) and a 2x4
connector to provide an additional two pins for +12V. (The ATX connector pin definition is not
standard, and it defined by power rating calculation).
The 2x12 ATX connector provides 3.3V, 5V, 12V, and 12V standby to the system. The 5V standby is
provided to the system via a charge pump from 3.3V standby.

4.4 Maximum Input Amps
The power supply is equipped with automatic input voltage detection.
Non-redundant power supply:
7.5 - 3.8 A at 100-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz
Redundant power supply:
7 - 3.5 A at 100-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz
4.5 Acoustics
The PowerEdge R410 has balanced acoustic and thermal performance to support a fully-configured
system and meets the Dell Acoustic specification AC0142 Rev. A02 category II-D requirement.
The R410 has an aluminum-base passive heat sink with two embedded heat pipes for the processor
cooling and four 40x56mm dual-rotor fans exhausting air through heat sink and out of the system. In
SKU2 (RDN PSU SKU), there are two extra 40X56mm dual-rotor fans in the front of PDB for redundant
power supply cooling.
The 40x56mm dual-rotor fan has an external PWM speed control, and it is integrated into
motherboard and power distribution unit (PDU). The thermal sensor on the front control board senses
the ambient temperature and adjusts the fan speed accordingly. In a normal office environment, the
fans spin slower, resulting in low acoustics. The fan RPM begins to ramp up with ambient, CPU, IOH,
and DIMM temperatures changes and in different system configurations (e.g., different CPU and RAID
card installation) to meet cooling requirements at higher ambient temperatures.

C (Inter-Integrated Circuit)
I2
C is a simple bi-directional two-wire bus for efficient inter-integrated circuit control. All I2
C -bus
compatible devices incorporate an on-chip interface that allows them to communicate directly with
each other via the I2
C-bus. This solves the many interfacing problems encountered when designing
digital control circuits. These I2
C devices perform communication functions between intelligent
control devices (e.g., microcontrollers), general-purpose circuits (e.g., LCD drivers, remote I/O ports,
memories), and application-oriented circuits.

13 Rack Information
13.1 Overview
The ReadyRails™ sliding and static rail systems for the R410 provide toolless support for 4-post racks
with square or unthreaded round mounting holes including all generations of Dell racks. Both support
tooled mounting in 4-post threaded racks (an optional adapter brackets kit is required for the sliding
rails), with the static rails also providing tooled mounting support for 2-post (Telco) racks for added
versatility. The optional cable management arm (CMA) can be mounted on either the left or right
side of the sliding rails without the use of tools for fast and easy deployment.
NOTE: The R410 is not compatible with any other Dell rails including previous generation rails, but it
does use the same sliding rails as the R310 and uses the same static rails as the R210 and R310.
13.2 Rails
The rail offerings for the R410 consist of two types: sliding and static.
The sliding rails allow the system to be fully extended out of the rack for service and are available
with or without the optional cable management arm (CMA).
Figure 25. R410 Sliding Rails with Optional CMA
Sliding rail kits can be used in a threaded hole rack only if threaded rack adapter brackets are
installed. The threaded rack adapter brackets are first mounted to the EIA flanges in the rack, and
then the sliding rails are mounted into the brackets. The design of the brackets has been optimized
to limit the forward shift of the system in the rack to only 17.3 mm.
The adapter brackets kit includes 6 brackets to accommodate different rail lengths, plus 4 sets of
custom screws in common thread sizes. A detailed Getting Started Guide is included in the kit along
with directions for installing the brackets and mounting the rails into the brackets.
Page: 43
Dell
PowerEdge R410 Technical Guide 44
Depending on the depth of the rack used, it may be necessary to remove the server’s bezel in order
to close the door of the rack. A minimum of 58 mm will be needed between the back surface of the
door panel and the front face of the EIA flange for the front door to close with the 11G server bezel
installed.
Figure 26. 1U Threaded Rack Adapter Brackets Kit
The static rails support a wider variety of racks than the sliding rails but do not support
serviceability in the rack and are thus not compatible with the CMA.
Figure 27. R410 Static Rails
One key factor in selecting the proper rails is identifying the type of rack in which they will be
installed. Both the sliding rails and the static rails support mounting in 19‖-wide, EIA-310-E
compliant 4-post racks, but only the static rails, as the more generic or ―universal‖ solution, support
mounting in 2-post (Telco) racks.

A3 ReadyRails™ Sliding √ √ √* X X

*Requires the 1U Threaded Rack Adapter Brackets Kit (Dell PN 8Y19G)
Screws are not included in the static rail kit due to the fact that threaded racks are offered with a
variety of thread designations. Users must therefore provide their own screws when mounting the
static rails in threaded or 2-post racks.
Other key factors governing proper rail selection include the spacing between the front and rear
mounting flanges of the rack, the type and location of any equipment mounted in the back of the
rack such as power distribution units (PDUs), and the overall depth of the rack. Due to their reduced
complexity and lack of need for CMA support, the static rails offer a greater adjustability range and
an overall smaller footprint than the sliding rails.

Note that the adjustment range of the rails is a function of the type of rack in which they are being
mounted. The min-max values listed above represent the allowable distance between the front and
rear mounting flanges in the rack. Rail depth represents the minimum depth of the rail as measured
from the rack front mounting flanges when the rail rear bracket is positioned all the way forward.
13.3 Cable Management Arm (CMA)
The optional cable management arm (CMA) for the R410 organizes and secures the cords and cables
exiting the back of the server and unfolds to allow the server to extend out of the rack without
having to detach the cables. Some key features of the R410 CMA include:
 Large U-shaped baskets to support dense cable loads
 Open vent pattern for optimal airflow
 Fully reversible (can be mounted on either side) with no conversion required
 Utilizes hook-and-loop straps rather than plastic tie wraps to eliminate the risk of cable
damage during cycling
 Includes a low profile fixed tray to both support and retain the CMA in its fully closed position
Page: 45
Dell
PowerEdge R410 Technical Guide 46
 Both the CMA and the tray mount without the use of tools via simple and intuitive snap-in
designs
13.4 Rack View
The R410 sliding rails are a ―stab-in‖ design, meaning that the inner (chassis) rail members must first
be attached to the sides of the system prior to inserting them into the middle (intermediate) and
outer (cabinet) rail members installed in the rack. The CMA can be mounted to either side of the rails
without the use of tools or the need for conversion, but it is recommended that it be mounted on the
side opposite the power supplies to allow easier access to the power supplies for service or
replacement.
Figure 28. R410 Mounted in the A3 Sliding Rails with the CMA
The R410 static rails are also a ―stab-in‖ design, but unlike the sliding rails, they do not include
middle (intermediate) rail members. After the inner (chassis) rail members have been attached to
the sides of the chassis, they are inserted directly into the outer (cabinet) rail members installed in
the rack.

15.3 Embedded Server Management
The PowerEdge R410 implements circuitry for the next generation of Embedded Server Management.
It is Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) v2.0 compliant. The optional iDRAC (Integrated
Dell Remote Access Controller) is responsible for acting as an interface between the host system and
its management software and the periphery devices. These periphery devices consist of the PSUs, the
storage backplane, integrated SAS HBA or PERC 6/I, and control panel with display.
The optional upgrade to iDRAC6 provides features for managing the server remotely or in data center
lights-out environments.
Advanced iDRAC features require the installation of the optional iDRAC6 Enterprise card.
15.4 Lifecycle Controller and Unified Server Configurator
Embedded management is comprised of several interdependent pieces:
• Lifecycle Controller
• Unified Server Configurator
• iDRAC6
