Elevated ambient operating temperature—If the PA-7000
Series firewall is installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the
ambient operating temperature of the rack environment may be greater
than the ambient room temperature. Verify that the ambient temperature
of the rack assembly does not exceed the maximum rated ambient temperature
requirements listed in PA-7000
Series Firewall Environmental Specifications.
Reduced airflow—Ensure that the airflow required for safe operation
is not compromised by the rack installation.
Mechanical loading—Ensure that the rack-mounted firewall does
not cause hazardous conditions due to uneven mechanical loading.
Reliable earthing—Maintain reliable earthing of rack-mounted
equipment. Pay special attention to power connections other than
direct connections to the branch circuit (such as use of power strips
or extension cords) to ensure that the firewall does not exceed
power ratings for connected hardware.
