Issue Details

I have some cooling concerns regarding my PXI / PXIe chassis and was wondering if it is possible to mount the chassis in a rack upside down.

Solution

No, you cannot mount the chassis upside down. The way the chassis is designed, mounting it upside down can adversely affect the cooling system.

All of our chassis can be mounted upright, and some can even be mounted on their sides. To determine whether your chassis can be mounted on its side or not, refer to the chassis's manual and specifications sheet.
