Replacing the Air Filter on the SRX240 Services Gateway

The SRX240 Services Gateway has one air filter that installs vertically in the rear of the chassis. The air filter is hot-insertable and hot-removable.

Note: An air filter is not shipped with the SRX240 Services Gateway with AC power supply model. To meet NEBS requirements, you must order the air filter separately. Contact your Juniper Networks customer service representative for more information.

The air filter is located in the rear of the chassis on left side (from rear side view). The air filter weighs approximately 0.2 lb (0.09 kg).

Caution: Do not run NEBS-compliant services gateways for more than a few minutes without the air filter in place.

Caution: Always keep the air filter in place while the services gateway is operating, except during replacement. Because the fans are very powerful, they could pull small bits of wire or other materials into the services gateway through the unfiltered air intake. This could damage the services gateway components.

To replace the air filter:

  1. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the other end of the ESD strap to the ESD point on the rack.
  2. Loosen the thumb-screw on the air filter. See Figure 18.
