Installing a Services Processing Card in an SRX1400 Services Gateway

You can install an SPC in the front panel of the SRX1400 Services Gateway (CFM 1).

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

Note: If a slot is not occupied by a card, you must install a blank panel to shield the empty slot and to allow cooling air to circulate properly through the device.

To install an SPC:

  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. If necessary, remove the double-wide filler cover from the slot by loosening its screws and sliding it out of the slot.
  4. Insert the double-wide tray and insert it straight into the slot until you hear a click, indicating the latch has closed as shown in Figure 70.

  5. Orient the SPC so that the faceplate faces you. Slide the SPC all the way into the card cage until you feel resistance. See Figure 71.

  6. 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.

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