Clearance Requirements for Airflow and Hardware Maintenance for EX4300 Switches
When planning the site for installing an EX4300 switch, you must ensure sufficient clearance around the switch.
Follow these clearance requirements:
If you are mounting the switch on a rack or cabinet along with other equipment, ensure that the exhaust from other equipment does not blow into the intake vents of the chassis.
Leave at least 6 in. (15.2 cm) clearance in front of and behind the chassis for airflow.
Leave at least 6 in. (15.2 cm) clearance on the left of the chassis for installing the grounding lug.
