Difference Cisco Nexus 3132Q-V Rev Air vs Std Air

Everyone probably already knows this, but I didn’t until a few weeks ago.

The Blue tabs on fans on the NX3132Q-V Std Air, means the fan side should be in the cold (blue) aisle (symbols on the tab show air being sucked in.)

The Red tabs on fans on the NX3132Q-V Rev Air, means the fans blow hot air out the back and should be in the hot (red) aisle (symbols on the tab show air being blown out.)

Most commonly, the NX3132Q-V Std Air is used for the NetApp ONTAP cluster switches, since it makes the cabling easier (the ports at the back of the controllers are the same side of the cabinet as the switch ports.)

    1. Think the colors might be a new-ish thing. I was looking around some cabinets and there were many different colors. Blue or red on the new devices.
