Table 1 lists the operating and nonoperating environmental site requirements. To maintain normal
operation and ensure high system availability, maintain an ambient temperature and clean power at
your site. The following ranges are those within which the router will continue to operate; however,
a measurement that is approaching the minimum or maximum of a range indicates a potential
problem. You can maintain normal operation by anticipating and correcting environmental
anomalies before they approach the maximum operating range.
Operating temperature range: 32 through 104F (0through 40C).
Operating humidity range: 10 to 90%, noncondensing.
Air ﬂow: Cooling air is drawn in through the sides of the chassis. Keep both sides of the chassis
clear of obstructions, including dust, and away from the exhaust ports of other equipment.

When the system power is on, the blower must be operational. If the system detects that the blower
has failed or is failing, it will display a warning message on the console screen.
If the condition is not corrected within two minutes, the entire system will shut down to avoid an
overtemperature condition and shutdown. The system uses a Hall Effect signal to monitor the
The current to the blower and the magnetic ﬁeld generated by the blower's rotation generates a
voltage, which the system monitors to determine whether or not the blower is operating. If the
monitored voltage signal drops below a speciﬁed value, the system assumes a blower failure and
initiates a shutdown.
In the following example, the system has detected an out-of-tolerance fan, which it interprets as a
fan failure. The failure message is displayed for two minutes before the system shuts down.
%ENVM-2-FAN: Blower has failed, shutdown in 2 minutes
If the system does shut down because of a blower failure, the system will display the following
message on the console screen and in the show environment display when the system restarts:
%ENVM-1-SHUTDOWN: Environmental Monitor initiated shutdown
