Removing the SRX5600 Services Gateway Air Filter

Caution: Do not run the services gateway for more than a few minutes without the air filter in place.

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

To remove the air filter (see Figure 45):

  1. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  2. Loosen the captive screws on the air filter cover.
  3. Remove the air filter cover.
  4. Slide the air filter out of the chassis.
