    Environmental Requirements for the Junos Space JA1500 Appliance

    The appliance must be installed in a rack or cabinet housed in a dry, clean, well-ventilated, and temperature-controlled environment.

    Ensure that these environmental guidelines are followed:

    • The site must be as dust-free as possible, because dust can clog air intake vents and filters, reducing the efficiency of the appliance cooling system.
    • Maintain ambient airflow for normal appliance operation. If the airflow is blocked or restricted, or if the intake air is too warm, the appliance might overheat.Table 1 provides the required environmental conditions for normal appliance operation.

    Table 1: JA1500 Appliance Operation Environmental Requirements




    No performance degradation to 10,000 feet (3048 meters)

    Relative humidity

    Normal operation ensured in relative humidity range of 8% to 90%, noncondensing


    Normal operation ensured in temperature range of 41° F to 104° F (5° C to 40° C)

    Table 2 lists the environmental requirements for storing the appliance while nonoperational.

    Table 2: Environmental Requirements for Appliance Storage




    The appliance can be stored safely up to 40,000 feet (12,192 meters)

    Relative Humidity

    The appliance can be stored safely in relative humidity range of 5% to 95%, noncondensing


    The appliance can be stored safely in temperature range of –40° F to 158° F (-40° C to 70° C)

    Table 3 lists the network environmental requirements for the appliance.
