Environmental Requirements and Specifications for ACX710 Routers


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

Follow these environmental guidelines:

  • The site must be as dust-free as possible because dust can clog air intake vents and filters, reducing the efficiency of the router cooling system.

  • Maintain ambient airflow for normal router operation. If the airflow is blocked or restricted, or if the intake air is too warm, the router might overheat, and the router temperature monitor might shut down the device to protect the hardware components.

Table 1 lists the environmental conditions required for normal router operation.
