Step 2: Install the Router

 

Tools Required to Install the Router in a Rack

To install the router in a rack, you need the following tools:

  • Phillips (+) screwdriver, number 2

  • ESD grounding wrist strap

Install the Mounting Brackets

Two mounting brackets for front or rear mounting ship with the router (see Figure 4 and Figure 5).

Attach both mounting brackets to either the front or rear of the chassis:

  1. Align the bracket with the two sets of mounting holes.
  2. Insert the four screws at the top and bottom of the bracket and tighten each partially.
  3. Tighten the four screws completely.
  4. Repeat the procedure for the other bracket.

Install the ACX2200 Router in the Rack

The router can be installed horizontally in a rack or cabinet.

Note

For additional installation options, contact JTAC.

One person must be available to lift the router while another secures the router to the rack. The chassis weighs approximately 7 lb (3.2 kg). To install the chassis (see Figure 6):

  1. Ensure that the rack is in its permanent location and is secured to the building. Ensure that the installation site allows adequate clearance for both airflow and maintenance.
  2. Position the router in front of the rack or cabinet.
  3. Have one person grasp both sides of the router, lift the router, and position it in the rack, aligning the mounting bracket holes with the threaded holes in the rack rails. Make sure the chassis is level.
  4. Have the second person install a mounting screw into each of the open mounting holes aligned with the rack, starting from the bottom.
  5. Visually inspect the alignment of the router. If the router is installed properly in the rack, all the mounting screws on one side of the rack should be aligned with the mounting screws on the opposite side, and the router should be level.
