Environmental Requirements

The following table describes the environmental specifications for the servers.


Caution  -  Set conditions to the optimal temperature and humidity ranges to minimize the chance of downtime due to component failure. Operating the servers for extended periods at or near the operating range limits, or installing them in an environment where they remain at or near nonoperating range limits could significantly increase hardware component failure.

Ambient temperature (does not apply to removable media)
  • Maximum range: 41°F to 95°F (5°C to 35°C) up to 2,953 feet (900 meters)

  • Optimal: 69.8°F to 73.4°F (21°C to 23°C)

Note -  Maximum ambient operating temperature is derated by 1 degree C per 300 meters of elevation beyond 900 meters, up to a maximum altitude of 3,000 meters.

–40°F to 154°F (–40°C to 68°C)
Relative humidity
  • 10% to 90% noncondensing, short term 23°F to 113°F (–5°C to 55°C)

  • 5% to 90% noncondensing, but not to exceed 0.024 kg of water per kg of dry air (0.053 lbs water/2.205 lbs dry air)

Up to 93% noncondensing 95°F (35°C) maximum wet bulb
Up to 9,840 feet (3,000 meters)

Note -  In China markets, regulations may limit installations to a maximum altitude of 6,562 feet (2,000 meters).

Maximum 39,370 feet (12,000  meters)
Acoustic noise
  • Maximum condition: 7.1 Bels A weighted

  • Idle condition: 7.0 Bels A weighted

Not applicable
  • 0.15 G (z-axis)

  • 0.10 G (x-, y-axes), 5-500Hz swept sine

IEC 60068-2-6 Test FC
  • 0.5 G (z-axis),

  • 0.25 G (x-, y-axes), 5-500Hz swept sine

IEC 60068-2-6 Test FC
3.5 G, 11 ms half-sine
IEC 60068-2-27 Test Ea
  • Roll-off: 1.25-inch roll-off free fall, front to back rolling directions

  • Threshold: 13-mm threshold height at 0.65 m/s impact velocity

  • ETE-1010-02 Rev A
