Installing a Network Processing Card in an SRX1400 Services Gateway

You can install an NPC in the front panel of the SRX1400 Services Gateway (CFM slot 3).

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.

Note: To install the NPC and SPC on the SRX1400 Services Gateway, you must order the double wide tray holder (SRX1K3K-2CFM-TRAY) to hold two single-wide CFMs (NPC and SPC) separately. Contact your Juniper Networks customer service representative for more information.

To install an NPC:

  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 filler cover from the slot by loosening its screws and sliding it out of the slot.
  4. Insert the double wide tray holder and insert it straight into the slot until you hear a click, indicating the latch has closed as shown in Figure 67.

  5. Orient the NPC so that the faceplate faces you. Slide the NPC all the way into the card cage until you feel resistance. See Figure 68

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