JCS 1200 Platform Environmental Specifications

Table 1 specifies the environmental specifications required for normal platform operation. In addition, the site should be as dust-free as possible. Dust can clog air intake vents, reducing cooling system efficiency. Check the vents frequently, cleaning them as necessary.
