    environmental requirements tables, including transients. The system must never be exposed to conditions that could cause internal condensation to occur within the subsystem. The air-conditioning units should have controls monitoring under the floor output that respond to 1° C (2° F) and 5 percent relative humidity. Humidification is normally required to replace moisture removed during the cooling process.
  • Page 28 and debris should be removed from the under the floor area to avoid becoming dust/dirt traps or potential sources of rust. During major changes in the server room environment, special considerations must be taken into account whenever any drilling, sawing, welding, brazing, etc., is performed. Precautions must be taken to prevent material particles (concrete or metal particles, etc.) from becoming airborne.
