Installing the SRX1400 Services Gateway in a Rack or Cabinet Using a Mechanical Lift

Caution: If a slot is not occupied by a card, you must install a blank panel to shield the empty slot to prevent foreign objects from damaging the exposed electronics.

You can front-mount or rear-mount the services gateway in a two-post rack, a four-post rack, or a cabinet. This topic provides the installation instructions on front-mounting of the device in a two-post rack.

To install an SRX1400 Services Gateway in a rack or cabinet:

  1. Ensure the rack is in its permanent location and is secured to the building.
  2. Ensure that the installation site allows adequate clearance for both airflow and maintenance. For details, see Site Preparation Checklist for the SRX1400 Services Gateway.
  3. Load the device onto the lift, making sure it rests securely on the lift platform (see Figure 20).

  4. Using the lift, position the device in the rack and align the bottom hole in each mounting bracket with a hole in each rack rail as shown in Figure 21.

    • 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 of the chassis to rest on.

  5. Install the remaining screws in each mounting bracket. Use a number-2 Phillips screwdriver to tighten the screws.
  6. Move the lift away from the rack.
  7. Visually inspect the alignment of the device. If the device 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 device should be level.

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 rear edge of the chassis to rest on.
