Temperature requirements

To ensure continued safe and reliable equipment operation, install or position the rack in a well-ventilated, climate-controlled environment.

The operating temperature inside the rack is always higher than the room temperature and is dependent on the configuration of equipment in the rack. Check the TMRA for each piece of equipment before installation.

To reduce the risk of damage to the equipment when installing third-party options:
  • Do not permit optional equipment to impede airflow around the frame or to increase the internal rack temperature beyond the maximum allowable limits.
  • Do not exceed the manufacturer’s TMRA.
