SwitchFix Passive, Dual-Side Air Intake for Network Switches

The SwitchFix SF001-PD1 easily solves cooling problems associated with network switches mounted in the back of the rack. It allows your switches to benefit from cooler airflow and comply with Hot Aisle/Cold Aisle best practices.

Network switch equipment typically sits at the top and back portion of the server rack. This placement makes it difficult for cool air from the cold aisle to reach the intake side(s) of the network switch. The SwitchFix solves this problem by extending from the front of the rack to the switch at the back of the rack, allowing cold aisle air to reach the network equipment.

The SwitchFix SF001-PD1 is configured with two side intake channels and adjusts in depth to ensure an optimal flow of cool air through to the installed switch. When paired with Upsite blanking panels and other airflow best practices, The SwitchFix’s passive airflow system can help control recirculated airflow preventing hot exhaust air from recycling through the installed equipment. The SwitchFix SF001-PD1 passive switch cooling solution can improve switch performance and life expectancy.
