Grounding the SRX3400 Services Gateway

You ground the services gateway by connecting a grounding cable to earth ground and then attaching it to the chassis grounding point using two M5 screws. You must provide the grounding cables (the cable lugs are supplied with the services gateway). For grounding cable specifications, see SRX3400 Services Gateway Chassis Grounding Point.

  1. Verify that a licensed electrician has attached the cable lug provided with the services gateway to the grounding cable.
  2. Attach an ESD grounding strap to your bare wrist and connect the strap to an approved site ESD grounding point. See the instructions for your site.
  3. Ensure that all grounding surfaces are clean and brought to a bright finish before grounding connections are made.
  4. Connect the grounding cable to a proper earth ground.
  5. Detach the ESD grounding strap from the site ESD grounding point.
  6. 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 SRX3400 Services Gateway.
  7. Place the grounding cable lug over the grounding point—a pair of M5 holes to the left of the power supply slots. See Figure 43.

  8. Secure the grounding cable lug to the chassis, first with the washers, then with the screws.
  9. Dress the grounding cable and verify that it does not touch or block access to services gateway components, and that it does not drape where people could trip on it.
