The Telcordia Network Equipment Building System (NEBS) GR-63-CORE standard is designed to ensure maximum equipment operability for telecommunications equipment and components. Air filter components are included in this standard to help improve system reliability by preventing contaminants from entering the system. The standard notes that “accumulation of dust on telecommunications products can provide the potential for electrical breakdown.” Air filters are viewed as important components to help prevent this electrical breakdown: “Forced air-cooled equipment shall be fitted with suitable filters to remove particulate matter that has not yet been filtered out by the return air systems of the building”.
The following requirements have been identified by Universal Air Filter Company to ensure that equipment meets all of the air filter requirements specified by the NEBS standard.
