Replacing a Services Processing Card on the SRX1400 Services Gateway

SPCs are installed in the services gateway in slots labeled CFM1 .

To replace an SPC:

  1. Place an electrostatic bag or antistatic mat on a flat, stable surface.
  2. 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.
  3. Loosen the captive screws at each end of the SPC faceplate.
  4. Grasp the SPC by its handle and slide it halfway out of the chassis.

  5. Place one hand underneath the SPC to support it and slide it completely out of the chassis. See Figure 73.

    Caution: SPCs can become very warm during operation. Avoid contact with the heat sink on top of the card when removing it to prevent personal injury.

  6. Place the SPC on the antistatic mat.
  7. Slide the replacement SPC into the slot until you feel resistance, and then press the SPC faceplate until it engages the connectors as shown in Figure 74.

  8. Tighten the captive screws on the left and right of the SPC.

When you power on the SRX1400 Services Gateway, the OK/FAIL LED on the SPC faceplate blinks green, then lights steadily indicating a normal operating condition.

Note: If the OK/FAIL LED is red, remove and reinstall the SPC. If the OK/FAIL LED remains red, the SPC is not functioning properly. Contact your customer support representative.

Warning: Never lift the services gateway using the handles on the front panels of the SPCs or other CFM cards. The handles might come off, causing the chassis to drop and inflicting possible grave injury.
