Using fan trays in electronic systems

Keywords:fan tray? electronic systems? cooling air?

Air cooling continues to be the dominant mode for most electronics applications despite rampant increases in system and component power dissipation. Using liquids for cooling electronics occurs more often at more modern data centers where the liquid cooling facilities are provisioned up front. Yet air cooling continues to be the desired mode if it meets the thermal requirements. Higher power dissipation in enclosures such as PICMG telecom chassis has mandated the migration from a single fan to an array of fans, commonly referred to as "fan trays."

This article discusses the use of fan trays in enclosures and highlights the pertinent issues facing such undertaking.
