What should the temperature be inside a NetShelter CX cabinet?

FA173479

14/06/2018

Issue:
Customers need to make sure that the NetShelter CX is not running too hot.

Product Line:
NetShelter CX
 
Environment:
All versions and serial ranges.
 
Cause:
Need to know internal temperature of the cabinet.
 
Resolution:
As long as the power guidelines are followed the internal temperature should be no more than 5 deg C (41*F) over room temperature. 

    Avoid clustering heat generating devices such as servers, dense RAID arrays and large VoIP switches in one part of the rack.
    Distribute the thermal load evenly up and down the cabinet such that each fan module supports an equal amount of the thermal load, or as close to it as possible.

    Blanking panels may be used to prevent air passing through large gaps between individual pieces of equipment.

Also refer to the installation manual for guidance.
