Compliant standards refer to a set of guidelines and regulations that this part Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-Series 3 Slot Chassis Fan must adhere to to meet industry standards for performance, safety, and compatibility with other equipment in the network. These standards are set by organizations such as UL, IEC, RoHS, and FCC, among others.
UL 60950-1 is a safety standard for information technology equipment, including servers and switches. It specifies requirements for electrical safety, environmental safety, and fire safety. This ensures that the fan is safe to use and poses no risk of electrical hazards or fires.
IEC 60950-1 is an international version of the UL 60950-1 standard. It is equivalent to the UL standard but is recognized globally, which means it can be used anywhere in the world.
RoHS stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances, and it is a European Union directive that limits the use of certain hazardous materials in electronic products. This ensures that the fan is environmentally friendly and poses no risk to the environment.
EN 55022 is a standard for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) that specifies limits on the levels of electromagnetic interference (EMI) that electronic equipment can generate. This ensures that the fan does not interfere with other electronic equipment in the network and does not emit harmful levels of EMI.
EN 55024 is a standard for immunity to electromagnetic interference, specifying limits on the levels of EMI that electronic equipment can tolerate. This ensures that the fan can operate in environments where there is already a high level of EMI without being affected.
EN 55032 is a standard for radio frequency interference (RFI) that specifies limits on the levels of RFI that electronic equipment can generate. This ensures that the fan does not interfere with radio communication in the network and does not emit harmful levels of RFI.
FCC Part 15 Class A is a standard for electromagnetic interference (EMI) that specifies limits on the levels of EMI that electronic equipment can generate. This ensures that the fan does not interfere with other electronic equipment in the network and does not emit harmful levels of EMI.General Information about the Cisco WS-C4503-E=
