Installing a Network Processing Card into the SRX3400 Services
The SRX3400 Services Gateway supports a maximum of two Network
Processing Cards (NPCs). You can install NPCs only in the rear panel
slots numbered 5, 6, and 7.
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.
To install an NPC:
- Attach an electrostatic discharge (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.
- If you have not already done so, power off the device by
pressing the Power button on the front panel of the Switch Fabric
Board (SFB) for three to five seconds.
The PWR LED blinks to show you that the device is shutting
down. Wait for the device to shut down before proceeding.
- Place the card on an
antistatic mat or remove it from its electrostatic bag.
- Identify the slot on the Services Gateway where
you will install the NPC. See Hardware Component Locations in the SRX3400 Services Gateway Chassis for more information about slots and supported modules.
- If necessary, remove the blank cover from the slot
by loosening its screws and sliding it out of the slot.
- Orient the NPC so that the faceplate
faces you. Slide the NPC all the way into the card cage
until you feel resistance.
- Tighten the screws on
either side of the card.

Never lift the Services Gateway using the handles on
the front panels of the NPCs or other CFM cards. The handles
might come off, causing the chassis to drop and inflicting possible
