Overtemp shutdown threshold

Will a Brocade 5100 SAN switch perform an overtemp shutdown if it reaches a certain threshold? I can't find any documented information about when warnings are issued when high temperatures are detected and at what temperature the SAN switch will eventually shutdown. Are any of these values documented and if so where can I find them? Is there a command which will display these? I can use tempshow to view the current internal temperature, but at what temperature do warnings get issued etc?

I have a switch that shows the following temperature values. Which are currently ok, but I think they are quite high.
