Summaries of Analyzing and Handling High Temperature of Cards on the NE40E

Publication Date:  2013-09-03 Views:  51 Downloads:  0
Issue Description
NE40E&NE80E version: V600R001C00SPC800
On the live network, the temperature of one or more LPUs on the NE40E is always high. Run the display temperature command. The command output shows that the temperature detected by two temperature sensing nodes on LPUF in slot 1 are high.

Solution
Analyze and handle the high temperature of the LPU on the NE40E&NE80E as follows:
1. High ambient temperature
The temperature in the equipment room directly affects the LPU temperature. For example, the temperature of LPUs on a device near to the air conditioner is low, and the temperature of LPUs on a device away from the air conditioner is high. When the temperature of an LPU is high but within the allowed range, no action is required.

2. Air filter and fan box
When the air filter and fan box are dusted, the air intake vent does not draw well and the heat dissipation of the NE40E degrades, leading to the rise in LPU temperature. It is recommended that the air filter and fan box be cleaned at least every three months.

3. Filler panel
According to the air ventilation mechanism of the NE40E, insert filler panels in the vacant slots to prevent heat dissipation of LPUs from being affected. If filler panels have been inserted, check whether the filler panels are securely inserted; if vacant slots have no filler panels, insert filler panels in a timely manner.

4. Special LPU hardware design
The temperature of a chip on an LPU includes the ambient temperature, case temperature, and junction temperature of the chip. A Huawei-developed chip has a built-in temperature sensor for monitoring the junction temperature, so the temperature of the LPU where the chip is located is higher that of LPUs in other nodes. The temperature monitoring nodes on LPUF-10, LPUF-21, and LPUF-40 use Huawei-developed chips. Their temperature is high but within the allowed range. Delete the alarms on the NMS.

5. Fan rotational speed
When the ambient temperature is lower than 45℃ and the air filter is clean, if the temperature is still high, manually increase the fan rotational speed to improve heat dissipation and ventilation performance on the LPU.

[NE40E-X3-hidecmd]fan speed full ------ Set the fan speed to 100%.
Suggestions
Step 5 in the solution is used for high temperature of a working card. If the card or temperature detection component is faulty, locate faults through exclusion and comparison methods or diagnosis logs, and maintain the hardware.
