Installing an I/O Card with Copper Media Interfaces in an SRX1400 Services Gateway

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

To install an IOC that supports copper media interfaces:

  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 IOC on an antistatic mat or remove it from its electrostatic bag.
  3. Identify the slot on the services gateway where it will be installed.

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

  4. Orient the IOC so that the faceplate faces you. Slide the IOC all the way into the card cage until you feel resistance.
  5. Tighten the screws on either side of the card.
  6. Insert the appropriate cables into the cable connector ports on each IOC. Secure the cables so that they are not supporting their own weight. Place excess cable out of the way in a neatly coiled loop. Placing fasteners on a loop helps to maintain its shape.

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 IOCs or other CFM cards. The handles might come off, causing the chassis to drop and inflicting possible grave injury.
