System 2 rack mount was designed to cool the small to mid-size rack. Using the same proportional speed control circuitry as other system 2 family members small thermistor senses temperature rise and adjusts fan speed accordingly. The fans typically begin to turn about 15 to 20 minutes after the system is turned on and will gradually slow and stop after the system is turned off. An effective mounting technique is to install the system 2 rack mount on the rear rails of rack. Install 1U vent panel as open as possible, low on the front rails of the rack. As long as there is space of at least 2 to 3 inches behind the rack a stream of air will be generated that enters low in the front of the rack and travels back and upward cooling the equipment in the rack.
