    Environmental Requirements and Specifications for VSE1100 and VSE2100 Devices

    The device must be installed in a rack housed in a dry, clean, well-ventilated, and temperature-controlled environment.

    Ensure that these environmental guidelines are followed:

    • The site must be as dust-free as possible, because dust can clog air intake vents and filters, reducing the efficiency of the device cooling system.
    • Maintain ambient airflow for normal device operation. If the airflow is blocked or restricted, or if the intake air is too warm, the device might overheat, causing the device temperature monitor to power off the device to protect the hardware components.

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