    Clearance Requirements for Airflow and Hardware Maintenance for VSE1100 and VSE2100 Devices

    When planning the installation site, allow sufficient clearance around the rack.

    • 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 on the side between devices that have fans or blowers installed.
      • Allow 2.8 in. (7 cm) between the side of the chassis and any non-heat-producing surface such as a wall.
      • Ensure that the airflow vents in the front and rear panels remain open and uncovered for proper cooling.
    • For service personnel to remove and install hardware components, there must be adequate space at the front and back of the device. At least 24 in. (61.0 cm) is required both in front of and behind the chassis. The front of the chassis extends approximately 0.5 in. (1.27 cm) beyond the mounting ears.
