Powering On the SRX240 Services Gateway

To power on the services gateway:

  1. Ensure that you have connected the power supply to the services gateway.
  2. Insert the plug into an AC power source receptacle (for SRX240 Services Gateway with AC power supply, and PoE).

    Or

    Attach the power cable to the DC power source (for SRX240 Services Gateway with DC power supply model). Ensure that the DC power source is connected according to the guidelines recommended in Connecting the SRX240 Services Gateway to a DC Power Source.

  3. The services gateway starts up as the power supply completes its startup sequence. The Power LED glows during startup and remains on steadily when the services gateway is operating normally.

Note: After the power supply is turned on, it can take up to 60 seconds for status indicators—such as the Status and Power LEDs on the front panel of chassis—to show that the power supply is functioning normally.

Note: It is recommended to issue the CLI command request system power-off when you want to power off the services gateway immediately after the services gateway is powered on.

You can power off the services gateway in one of the following ways:

Warning: Do not press the Power button while the services gateway is shutting down.

Caution: Forced shutdown can result in data loss and corruption of the file system.

Note: To remove power completely from the services gateway, unplug the AC power cord (for SRX240 Services Gateway with AC power supply, and PoE models) or switch off the DC power source (SRX240 Services Gateway with DC power supply).

After powering off a power supply, wait at least 10 seconds before turning it back on. After powering on a power supply, wait at least 10 seconds before turning it off.

The Power button on the services gateway is a standby power switch.

If you press the Power button to power off the services gateway when it is still connected to a power source, 12 V (for SRX240 Services Gateway with AC power supply non PoE models, and for DC power supply models), 52 V (for SRX240 Services Gateway PoE models) power will still be available in the chassis and the services gateway will be fully powered off.

Tip: When you are powering off the services gateway, the following message is displayed:

Turning the system power off.
