Fan Noise?

It's unclear in the datasheet, does the EdgePower have internal fans?  If so, what is the noise level like for a unit loaded at 70~80 watts continuous?  This would be with the AC and DC supplies installed.

Re: Fan Noise?

There are fans in the PS modules.  The noise is minimal - I have one permanently mounted about 10 feet from my desk.   That said, this is designed to be located away from people with other rack type stuff - it will make noise, like any other enterprise switch/router/server.   I would install it away from noise sensitive areas in any case.
