C7000 Airflow Requirements


C7000 Airflow Requirements

Hi all,

I am planning for the deployment of new equipment and would like to get some metrics associated with airflow requirements for a C7000 chassis. I am hoping to be able to use a volumetric airflow in order to help with my cabinet and airflow delivery requirements for the new space. I understand there are a variety of input variables which influence the airflow required by the chassis. In order to simplify the initial discussion can anyone help provide airflow metrics for a C7000 chassis using the following information?


  • Fully populated chassis with 16 BL460c Gen9 half height blades, 2xE5-2680v3 cpus
  • 6x2400W platinum power supplies
  • 6xActive Cool 200 Fans
  • Inlet air temperature is at max ASHRAE TC9.9 recommended range - 80.6ºF (27ºC)
  • Chassis utilization is approx 75% - 5000W


Please let me know if there is any other information that would be required. Thanks for your help.
