The Question is:
I am researching for the British Thermal Units (BTUs/hr) on MicroVax 3100 Model
30, Model 40, Model 90, and Storage Expansion. Also, I am looking for BTUS/hr
on Digital Monitor VT420. Do you have any ideas what are the BTUs/hr on the
that I had listed above? Let me know.
I am doing a research for getting a new air conditioner in our computer room.
That is why I need the BTUs/Hr.
The Answer is :
For the purposes of air conditioning and thermal loads, a rough thermal
calculation can obviously be made solely from the volt-amperes -- per a
rather well-known law of physics, input power eventually ends up as heat.
Connect a watt or an ampere meter and measure the system requirements, or
use the platform's volt-amperage rating, or (better) check the rating of
the system's power supply, and then use the formula:
Watts equals BTUs per hour times 0.2930711
Various VAX hardware-level specifications can be found on-line at:
Various MicroVAX 3100 systems are circa 200 watts or less -- depending
on peripherals and such, of course.
