Rack Cooling Efficiency Task List - Tripp Lite

  1. 1. Rack Cooling Efficiency Task List >100° F (>37.8° C) • High risk of damage and downtime • May invalidate equipment warranty 90° to 100° F (32.2° to 37.8° C) • Risk of damage and downtime • Short bursts (seconds to minutes) may be acceptable, depending on availability goals 80.6° to 90° F (27° to 32.2° C) • Within the “allowable” range • Okay for brief periods (hours to days) • Longer periods may compromise equipment life 77.1° to 80.6° F (25.1° to 27° C) • IT equipment operates reliably • Equipment fans use more electricity, negating other efficiency gains 77° F (25° C) • Ideal temperature for IT equipment • Both highly reliable and highly efficient 64.4° to 76.9° F (18° to 24.9° C) • IT equipment operates reliably • As temperature drops, efficiency drops • Costs increase without added benefits <64.4° F (<18° C) • Same as above, but even more inefficient • May require costly make-up humidification Intake Air Temperature Guidelines for IT Equipment Need help with a rack cooling solution?
