An air deflector is a sheet-metal part that is mounted on the NCS 2002 shelf to orient the air flow in a specific direction.
The air deflectors can be mounted in different positions to control the air flow:
- Front to Front— Only ETSI rack
- Front to Back— For ANSI and ETSI racks
- Front to Top— Only ETSI rack
In an ANSI rack, the air deflectors are mounted only on the 23-inch rack configuration.
