Tackles Noise and Overheating

Avoid noise complaints
Simply set your rack thermostat and the “whisper quiet” cabinet fans will remove any excess heat without the need for noisy server fans to turn on.

Without the aid of air conditioning, each fan module is able to provide 1.2kW of efficient cooling.


1. Air is drawn into the rack through the edges and seams of the front door. 2. Air is pulled straight through to the inner equipment spaces where it will cool the equipment. As it begins to heat up from being passed front to back the brush strips will ensure it cannot recirculate.

3. The hot air is expelled by the thermostat-controlled rear door fans.

Tips for Best Performance

Optimize your cooling performance with these helpful tips:
• Separate and spread out your heat-generating equipment. This helps to balance the distribution of the thermal load.

• Leave around 6 in or 15 cm of space on each side of your enclosure. You can still push the back of the rack against a wall.

• Situate your enclosure in an air-conditioned environment. If possible, place it close to a room-level air intake to avoid heating the entire room with recirculated hot air.

• Adding a Netbotz or cloud based EcoStruxure envrionmental monitoring system, you can help to prevent downtime through remote monitoring and enabling notifications.
