Installing a Services Processing Card in the SRX3600 Services Gateway

The SRX3600 Services Gateway supports up to seven SPCs. Before installing your card, see Hardware Component Locations in the SRX3600 Services Gateway Chassis to verify that you have selected an appropriate slot location.

Note: For the services gateway to meet NEBS and ETSI standards, it must not have any two SPCs installed side by side in the CFM slots in the front of the chassis (CFM slots 1 through 6). You can install SPCs side by side in the CFM slots in the rear of the chassis (CFM slots 7 through 12). See SRX3600 Services Gateway NEBS and ETSI Compliance for more information.

Note: 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 services gateway.

To install an SPC:

  1. 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 SRX3600 Services Gateway.
  2. If you have not already done so, power off the services gateway 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 services gateway is shutting down. Wait for the services gateway to shut down before proceeding.

  3. Place the card on an antistatic mat or remove it from its electrostatic bag.
  4. Identify the slot on the services gateway where you will install the SPC. See Hardware Component Locations in the SRX3600 Services Gateway Chassis for more information about slots and supported modules.
  5. Orient the SPC so that the faceplate faces you. Slide the SPC all the way into the card cage until you feel resistance.
  6. Tighten the screws on either side of the card.

  7. If you plan to install any additional SPCs, repeat steps 3 through 6.

Warning: Never lift the services gateway using the handles on the front panels of the SPCs or other CFM cards. The handles might come off, causing the chassis to drop and inflicting possible grave injury.
