requirements are met:
The primary outlet is wired correctly, protected by a circuit breaker, and grounded in
accordance with local electrical codes.
The supply circuit, line fusing, and wire size are adequate, as specified by the electrical rating
on the switch nameplate.
A maximum of 71.36 cubic meters/hour (42 cubic feet/minute). Nominal airflow is 59.47
cubic meters/hour (35 cubic feet/minute).
The primary AC input is 85–264 VAC Nominal: 100–240 VAC, 2.0 A; 47–63 Hz. The switch
autosenses input voltage.
To ensure adequate cooling, install the switch with the nonport side (which contains the air intake
vents) facing the cool-air aisle and with the supplied plenum installed. ) The ambient air temperature
must not exceed 40°C (104°F) and the ambient humidity must be between 10% and 85% while
the switch is operating.

on the sides of the cabinet or patch panels.
