Fahrenheit. Use “whisper” type ventilation fans in racks, adjusted to come on when temperature
in rack rises above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, only if adequate cooling cannot be provided by
Owner.
3.
Rack Wiring - Wire equipment racks neatly, allowing proper slack for future serviceability. Looking
from rear of equipment rack AR-4, locate power, digital control, DC control, and loudspeaker
cables on right; and, locate microphone, line level audio on left. Maintain separate cable bundles
for different types of signals. Do not bundle power cords permanently attached to equipment with
other power cords. Do not block access to front-mounted equipment with equipment mounted to
rear rack rails.
E.
