    C3000 and C5000 Clearance Requirements for Airflow and Hardware Maintenance

    When planning the installation site, allow sufficient clearance around the rack (see Figure 1):

    • For the cooling system to function properly, the airflow around the chassis must be unrestricted. Allow at least 6 in. (15.2 cm) of clearance between side-cooled controllers. Allow 2.8 in. (7 cm) between the side of the chassis and any non-heat-producing surface such as a wall.
    • For service personnel to remove and install hardware components, there must be adequate space at the front and back of the controller. Allow at least 24 in. (61 cm) both in front of and behind the controller.
