Lifting the SRX1400 Services Gateway Chassis into a Rack

Lifting the chassis and mounting it in a rack requires two people (see Figure 23). Without the power supply and fan tray, the chassis weighs approximately 23.3 lb (10.57 kg).

  1. Ensure that the rack is in its permanent location and is secured to the building.
  2. Position the chassis in front of the rack.
  3. With one person on each side, lift the chassis into position in the rack.

    Warning: Do not attempt to lift the chassis by the handles on the power supplies or on the CFMs. The handles might break off, causing the chassis to fall and inflict injury.

  4. Align the bottom hole in each mounting bracket with a hole in each rack rail as shown in Figure 24.

    • For front-mounting the chassis in a two-post rack, align the bottom hole in each mounting bracket at the front edge of the chassis.
    • For rear-mounting the chassis in a two-post rack, align the bottom hole in each mounting bracket at the rear edge of the chassis.

    Note: Similarly, you can front-mount or rear-mount the chassis in a four-post rack. However, there is no support shelf provided for the unsupported edge on which the chassis can rest.

  5. Use the screws to attach the left and right brackets to the rack.
  6. Visually inspect the alignment of the chassis. If the chassis 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 chassis should be level.
