Rack Requirements

The ambient temperature inside a rack-mount cabinet may be greater than the ambient temperature within a room. To ensure your switcher operates within its the maximum operating temperature range, maintain the following minimum dimensions within the equipment rack:

  • 3 inches of clearance on both the right and left-hand sides of the switcher frame with unrestricted vertical airflow.
  • 2RU of space, or the equivalent, for intake air at the bottom of the rack.
  • 4RU of space, or the equivalent, for exhaust air at the top of the rack (open equipment rack top for example).
