Introduction to the Fan Module
The FAN-T2 Cisco Type 2 Fan Unit Assembly is a component of Cisco networking equipment that provides cooling to prevent overheating and maintain proper operation of the device. It is specifically designed to be used in certain Cisco switches and routers, including the Catalyst 6500 series and the ASR 9000 series.
The fan unit assembly contains multiple fans that work together to circulate air through the device and dissipate heat generated by the electronic components. The FAN-T2 assembly is a hot-swappable unit, which means that it can be replaced while the device is still running, without interrupting the operation of the network.
The FAN-T2 fan unit assembly is designed to be durable and reliable, with a long lifespan and minimal maintenance requirements. It is also engineered for low acoustic noise, making it ideal for deployment in data centers, offices, and other environments where noise levels must be kept to a minimum.
Safety Features and Compliance
The FAN-T2 Cisco Type 2 Fan Unit Assembly is designed with safety features and is compliant with industry safety standards to ensure safe and reliable operation. Here are some of the key safety features and compliance certifications of the FAN-T2 fan unit assembly:
- Safety interlock switch: The FAN-T2 assembly includes a safety interlock switch that prevents the unit from being removed while the device is powered on. This helps to prevent electrical shock and damage to the device.
- Overheating protection: The fan unit assembly is designed with overheating protection, which shuts down the unit automatically in case of overheating. This helps to prevent damage to the device and ensures safe operation.
- Compliance with safety standards: The FAN-T2 Cisco Type 2 Fan Unit Assembly is compliant with safety standards such as UL (Underwriters Laboratories) and CSA (Canadian Standards Association), which certify that the unit has been tested and found to be safe for use in a wide range of environments.

Efficiency and Energy Savings
The FAN-T2 Cisco Type 2 Fan Unit Assembly is designed with efficiency and energy savings in mind. Here are some of the key features that contribute to its energy efficiency:
- Variable-speed fans: The FAN-T2 assembly includes multiple variable-speed fans, which adjust their speed based on the cooling requirements of the device. This helps to reduce energy consumption and noise levels.
- Intelligent temperature control: The fan unit assembly is designed with intelligent temperature control, which adjusts the fan speed based on the temperature of the device. This helps to ensure that the device is cooled only as much as necessary, reducing energy consumption.
- Low power consumption: The FAN-T2 assembly is designed with low power consumption, using efficient components and technologies to minimize energy use.
- Compliance with energy efficiency standards: The FAN-T2 Cisco Type 2 Fan Unit Assembly is compliant with energy efficiency standards such as Energy Star and 80 PLUS, which ensure that the unit meets minimum energy efficiency requirements.

Server Cooling Fans - Accessories
Failure to keep your data center cool can lead to damaging risks such as overheating of devices, electrical failures, and even the risk of fire. That's why choosing and installing the right server cooling fan is necessary for normal and optimal operation.
Air-Circulation - A Key Factor In Server Cooling
If you have empty server racks, for instance, it's highly recommended that you keep them all covered with blanking panels. This will ensure stable and efficient air circulation inside your server enclosure.
When your data center has multiple servers that are close to each other, it's advisable that you consider investing in a suitable wall-mountable air conditioner.
Selecting Server Cooling Fans - Factors to Consider
Since data centers vary in terms of size, location, and operations, their cooling requirements too will vary.
Some of the factors or steps to take when selecting your server's fans cooling accessories are:
- Assess the amount of heat your devices produce and their locations.
- Evaluate your data center's airflow status and requirements.
- Choose a server fan with a suitable airflow, rating, or capacity.
- Select the right fan type.
- Ensure that your selected fan is compatible with your server device(s).
- Where applicable, consider other features such as the fan's white noise, temperature sensor, power-savings sleep-timer feature, etc.
- Purchase from a reliable supplier who has the necessary technical skills support capacity.
Types of Server Cooling Fans
1. Fan Tray:
This is one of the most common types of server rack fans. For installation, simply mount it on your server rack's hotspot. It works by pushing air vertically for effective cooling of your rack devices.
2. Horizontal Rack-mount
Horizontal fans work well where fan trays can't provide the desired airflow. Unlike fan trays, they remove heat from the server by pushing air out through the back of the rack.
3. Box Fan
They'll fit perfectly on your server-room windows or doors for enhanced air circulation. They can also serve as floor fans depending on your server room's floor design.
4. Tower Fan
Tower fans need no permanent installation and hence very cost-effective. However, the location should be unobtrusive.
It must be in a place where it will be capable of driving out a lot of airflow from your server room.
5. High-Performance Server Fans & Accessories.
If you have specific server devices and are searching for a cooling fan, it's important that you go for solutions that are compatible with your devices or brands.
This is because ordering the wrong accessory can be costly.
Listed below are some of the top high-performance server cooling fans that your data center may require:
