Humidity

What kind of humidity do you guys shoot for in your data center? I've always read that 40 to 60% is ideal however lately I've been facing around 20%. Fortunately we have ESD friendly flooring but there are other problems than just ESD. Just curious what everyone out that shoots for. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Re: Humidity

Hi,

I'd personally shoot for no lower that 40%, but it's a somewhat controversial subject. There's a standards body in the US which recommends 40% to 55%, but even they say 20% to 80% can be "acceptable".

The fact is that the lower the humidity the higher the risk from ESD so I'd rather play it safe.

HTH

Andrew.
