    Clearance Requirements for Airflow and Hardware Maintenance for VXA2000, VXA2002, and VXA2010 Content Engines

    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 appliance. NEBS GR-63 recommends that you allow at least 30 in. (72.6 cm) in front of and behind the chassis.
