Perform the environmental stabilization with the assistance of the Teradata team.

If temperature and humidity changes have been extreme during transit, cabinets and components may develop condensation. Before installing or powering on the system, make sure the cabinets and components are free of condensation.

The installation environment must meet the requirements specified in Environmental Requirements.

  1. After moving the cabinets, use the guidelines in the following table to determine the stabilization time.
    Condition Stabilization Period
    • No extreme temperature and humidity changes during transit and between the customer’s receiving area and on-site destination
    • Desiccant is present
    • No condensation is present on the cabinets or components
    None
    • Extreme temperature and humidity changes during transit and between the customer’s receiving area and on-site destination
    • Desiccant is present
    • Condensation is present on the cabinets or components
    4 hours
    • Extreme temperature and humidity changes during transit and between the customer’s receiving area and on-site destination
    • Plastic bag is missing
    • Desiccant is missing
    • Condensation is present on the cabinets or components
    8 hours
  2. After the stabilization period, remove and discard the desiccant and any remaining plastic bags. Check the inside and top of each cabinet for desiccant.
  3. Before and during installation, inspect the surfaces of the cabinets and components for condensation. If necessary, continue allowing two-hour stabilization periods until there are no signs of condensation.
