Place the workstation in an area with adequate ventilation. Provide at least 15.24 cm (6 inches) of
clearance at the front and back of the workstation as shown in the following figure.
Your workstation might look different than the one shown.
Ensure that the ambient air temperature surrounding the workstation falls within the published limit.
a 1 C per 304.8 m (1000 ft derating above 1524 m (5000 ft). So, at 3,048 m (10,000 ft), the
upper ambient air temperature limit is 30 C.
For cabinet installation, ensure adequate cabinet ventilation and ensure that the ambient
temperature within the cabinet does not exceed published limits.
Never restrict the incoming or outgoing airflow of the workstation by blocking any vents or air
intakes as shown in the following figure.
