TCX1000-RDM20 Environmental Requirements and Specifications
The TCX1000-RDM20 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 TCX1000-RDM20 cooling system.
Maintain ambient airflow for normal TCX1000-RDM20 operation. If the airflow is blocked or restricted, or if the intake air is too warm, the chassis might overheat, leading to the TCX1000-RDM20 temperature monitor shutting down the device to protect the hardware components.
Table 1 provides the required environmental conditions for normal operation of the TCX1000-RDM20.
Table 1: TCX1000-RDM20 Environmental Tolerances
