Fans for a Cabinet
Righty ho, now I have replaced 4 of our switches I have noticed that these new ones of ours don't have internal fans - with two in a all cabinet with some POE staff etc they are running a tad hot. The safe temp is 40/104 - I have a nasty feeling they will get VERY close to that in a closed cabinet.
Anyone got any suggestions as to a good supplier of some cabinet fans ?
Also - best place to mount them ? Top, Middle or Bottom..... ;-)
I'm not sure where the best place to buy the fans from is... I do know that you should extract the (hot) air out of the top of the cab and maybe suck some (cool) air into the bottom or sides.
Videk is a good place to start for anything like this.
Fans are here - the 1U general purpose one might be best (because it will fit any cab)
Fabulous company, excellent service, not bad prices!
Thanks for the Videk link.
