Installing a Network and Services Processing Card in an SRX1400 Services Gateway

You can install an NSPC in the front panel of the SRX1400 Services Gateway.

Before installing your card, see SRX1400 Services Gateway Front Panel to verify that you have selected an appropriate slot location.

Note: You can either use an NSPC or the combination of SRX3000 Series Services Gateway Network Processing Card (NPC) and Services Processing Cards (SPC), with a double wide tray holder on the SRX1400 Services Gateway for the device to operate properly. For more details, see the SRX3000 Series Services Gateway Cards Supported on SRX1400 Services Gateway.

Note: If an NSPC is not present, you must install a filler cover to shield the empty slots 1 and 3 and to (shown in Figure 24) to shield the empty slot and to allow cooling air to circulate properly through the device.

To install an NSPC:

  1. Attach an ESD grounding strap to your bare wrist and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.

    For more information about ESD, see Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage to the SRX1400 Services Gateway.

  2. Place the card on an antistatic mat or remove it from its electrostatic bag.
  3. Identify the slot on the services gateway where you will install the NSPC.

    See SRX1400 Services Gateway Front Panel for details about where the individual modules can be installed.

  4. Remove the dual-wide filler cover from the slot by loosening its screws and sliding it out of the slot. Save the filler cover after removing it from the slot, in case you need it when you pack or move the chassis at a later time.
  5. Orient the NSPC so that the faceplate faces you. Slide the NSPC all the way into the card cage until you feel resistance. See Figure 25.

  6. Press both of the ejector handles inward to seat the NSPC.
  7. Tighten the screws on either side of the card.

    You can proceed with installing other hardware components, or power supplies, or connecting to a management device. See Powering On the SRX1400 Services Gateway to power on the SRX1400 Services Gateway.
