I have my equipment in a separate equipment / rack room which has both


i) a 110 CFM fan to exhaust the hot air; and

ii) an air vent to supply cool air from and adjacent room.


I am curious as to what a safe upper temperature limit is for the equipment in this room...for example is, 85 degrees Fahrenheit a safe upper temperature, is 90 degrees Fahrenheit a safe upper temperature, etc...


I can get a fairly accurate temperature readings as I have a Crestron temperature puck/sensor that is used to turn the exhaust fan on/off installed within the equipment rack


Thanks so much...

My thermal dynamics engineer friend told me that 85 degrees was a good threshold for long electronics life. That is where I set mine. Mind you he also told me I really needed twice as much air exchange and a non-passive intake so he might be over engineering a little.

Moggie:


Appreciate the response...the idea/thought of a non-passive air exchange is an interesting way of increase the cold air flow into a room...


Thanks...
