Grounding the SRX5800 Services Gateway

You ground the services gateway by connecting a grounding cable to earth ground and then attaching it to the chassis grounding points using two screws. You must provide the grounding cables (the cable lugs are supplied with the services gateway).

  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.
  7. Place the grounding cable lug over one of the two grounding points. The right pair is sized for UNC 1/4-20 screws and 1/4 in. split washers, which are provided in the accessory box. The left pair is sized for M6 metric screws. If you wish to use the metric-sized grounding point, you must provide appropriate screws and split washers.
  8. Secure the grounding cable lug to the grounding point, first with the washers, and then with the screws as shown in Figure 49.

  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.
