This section describes requirements for the system in which the CEX7S is installed.
Hardware The CEX7S can be installed in an IBM Z mainframe (currently, z15® only).
From the time of manufacture, the IBM CEX7S cryptographic card must be shipped, stored, and used within the following environmental specifications. Outside of these specifications, the CEX7S tamper sensors can be activated and render the CEX7S permanently inoperable.
Shipping: The card should be shipped in original IBM packaging (electrostatic discharge bag with desiccant and thermally insulated box with gel packs).
Temp -34°C to +60°C
Pressure min 550 mbar (maximum altitude 16 000 feet)
Humidity 5% to 100% RH
Storage: The card should be stored in electrostatic discharge bag with desiccant.
Temp +1°C to +60°C
Humidity 5% to 80% RH
Pressure min 700 mbar (maximum altitude 10 000 feet)
Operation: (ambient in system)
Temp +5°C to +35°C
Humidity 8% to 85% RH
Pressure / altitude (max) min 700 mbar (maximum altitude 10 000 feet)
Airflow (minimum) 300 LFM (air velocity over the secure module)
