Product Description

The WS-C6513-E-FAN is designed with 9 fans of 14 cm diameter, ensuring optimal airflow from side to side within the compatible Cisco Catalyst 6513-E chassis. It operates efficiently within a temperature range of 0 °C to 40 °C and supports a broad operating altitude from -60 to 3000 meters. This fan tray enhances system reliability through its ability to manage thermal transitions smoothly, at 0.5 °C per minute from hot to cold and 0.33 °C per minute from cold to hot, while also maintaining operational integrity in environments with relative humidity ranging from 5% to 90% (noncondensing).

Product Review

The Cisco WS-C6513-E-FAN, designed for the Catalyst 6513-E chassis, features nine 14 cm fans, ensuring efficient side-to-side airflow for optimal cooling performance. However, its operating temperature range is limited to 0 °C, posing potential challenges in environments with fluctuating temperatures. Additionally, its ability to operate across a wide altitude range (-60 to 3000 m) enhances its versatility in various installation environments.


The Cisco WS-C6513-E-FAN is designed specifically for the Cisco Catalyst 6513-E chassis, ensuring optimal cooling and system performance. This high-capacity fan tray includes 9 fans, each with a diameter of 14 cm, engineered to facilitate efficient side-to-side airflow. This design supports the critical function of maintaining the proper operating temperature within the chassis, thereby enhancing the reliability and longevity of the networking hardware housed within. Key specifications of the WS-C6513-E-FAN include an airflow capacity of 1755 cubic feet per minute (CFM), which plays a pivotal role in managing the thermal environment of the system. This is particularly important in dense network configurations where heat generation can be significant. Effective heat dissipation is crucial for maintaining system performance and avoiding overheating, which can lead to hardware failure.
  • The operating temperature range of the fan tray spans from 0 °C to 40 °C, accommodating a wide spectrum of environmental conditions.
  • The storage temperature range extends from -20 °C to 65 °C, ensuring the fan tray's components are protected even when not in use.
  • The device is designed to operate efficiently across a relative humidity spectrum from 5% to 90% non-condensing, and it can withstand non-operating humidity levels from 5% to 95% non-condensing.
Temperature transitions are managed carefully within the system to prevent condensation and thermal stress. The WS-C6513-E-FAN supports a hot to cold thermal transition rate of 0.5 °C per minute and a cold to hot transition of 0.33 °C per minute. These transition rates are crucial for preventing condensation within the chassis, which could potentially damage the hardware. The fan tray is also designed to operate effectively at altitudes ranging from -60 to 3000 meters. This wide operating altitude range ensures that the fan tray can be deployed in various environments, from data centers located at high altitudes to those situated below sea level, without compromising its cooling efficiency or the performance of the network infrastructure it supports. In summary, the Cisco WS-C6513-E-FAN is an essential component for maintaining optimal operating conditions within the Cisco Catalyst 6513-E chassis. Its design and specifications ensure that it can effectively manage the thermal environment of the networking hardware, thereby supporting system reliability and performance. With its efficient airflow design, wide operating temperature and humidity ranges, and the ability to handle various thermal transitions and altitudes, the WS-C6513-E-FAN is a critical element in the overall performance and longevity of Cisco network systems.
