Removing a Mini-Physical Interface Module from the SRX Series Services Gateway

Before you begin, power off the services gateway.

Caution: The Mini-PIMs available on the SRX Series Services Gateway are not hot-swappable. You must power off the services gateway before removing or installing Mini-PIMs.

To remove a Mini-PIM from the SRX Series Services Gateway:

  1. Place an electrostatic bag or antistatic mat on a flat, stable surface on which you intend to place the Mini-PIM.
  2. Attach an ESD grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to the grounding point on the back of the device.
  3. Unplug the power adapter from the services gateway. Verify that the Power LED is off.
  4. Label the cables connected to the Mini-PIM so that you can later reconnect each cable to the correct Mini-PIM.
  5. Disconnect the cables from the Mini-PIM.
  6. If necessary, arrange the cables to prevent them from dislodging or developing stress points.
  7. Remove the screws on each side of the Mini-PIM faceplate using a 1/8-in. (3-mm) flat-blade (–) screwdriver.
  8. Grasp the screws on each side of the Mini-PIM faceplate and slide the Mini-PIM out of the services gateway. See Figure 8.

  9. Place the Mini-PIM in the electrostatic bag or on the antistatic mat.
  10. If you are not reinstalling a Mini-PIM into the empty slot, install a blank faceplate over the slot to maintain proper airflow.

Note: When installing a blank Mini-PIM faceplate, make sure that the padded side of the faceplate is facing up.
