Ask a Question

Can the NetShelter CX fans be turned on/off, or fan speed raised/lowered, remotely?

Issue: 
A customer asks if the Net Shelter CX fans can be controlled remotely. 

Product Line: 
NetShelter CX

Environment: 
All models, all serial numbers. 

Cause: 
For various reasons the customer may want to reduce fan speed, or turn them on/off. 

Resolution: 

Using either NetBotz or a Switched Rack PDU you can control a specific port on the NetBotz or PDU. A temperature sensor can also be used to set thresholds for alarms, or to turn outlets on/off. Please contact your APC Representative to design a solution that suits your particular needs. 

NetShelter CX fan speed cannot be raised or lowered remotely, but the AR40xxA and AR40xxIA (and all X-options) have a fan booster switch on the rear. This booster switch allows the customer to increase the standard fan speed.
