Does UPS interferes with servers if they are too close.

Does UPS interferes with servers if they are too close.

Does UPS interferes with servers if they are too close.

(OP)
We bought a APC SmartUPS 2200 which will be located on the bottom of a rack. since we are moving a bunch of servers to the rack, I am concerning wheather UPS interferes with servers if I put 2 servers right above the UPS.  Is there a minimum distance between UPS and machines?

RE: Does UPS interferes with servers if they are too close.

None that I've ever seen... In fact, if you go to the rack designers for various manufacturers, the UPS's are on the bottom (due to the weight), followed directly by the servers. They never show or require spacing between the two and they get pretty technical in their specs fo these things. So if it was needed, they would show it in their diagram offered or state if very boldly which they don't.

I would think the metal casing is more than adequate to shield if there was some interferance given off.
