SRX3600 Services Gateway Fan Tray

The cooling system consists of a fan tray containing 10 fans and an air filter. These components work together to keep all services gateway components within the acceptable temperature range. The services gateway has one fan tray located in the rear of the services gateway that installs vertically to the right of the card cage. The fan tray is hot-insertable and hot-removable.

From the front of the chassis, there is a single air intake on the left side of the services gateway. Air is pushed from the fan tray through the air filter and then to the card cage. The air is exhausted out the right of the system. Figure 18 illustrates the air flow from the top of the chassis and the front of the chassis.

The Routing Engine monitors the temperature of the services gateway components. Above an ambient temperature of 86°F (30°C), the fans operate at full speed. Below 86°F (30°C), the fans operate at a reduced speed. If a fan fails or the ambient temperature rises above a threshold, the speed of the remaining fans is automatically adjusted to keep the temperature within the acceptable range. If the ambient maximum temperature specification is exceeded and the system cannot be adequately cooled, the Routing Engine shuts down the system by disabling output power from each power supply.
