Removing the SRX5800 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 services gateway is operating, except during replacement. Because the fans are very powerful, they could pull small bits of wire or other materials into the services gateway through the unfiltered air intake. This could damage the services gateway components.

To remove the air filter (see Figure 65):

  1. Attach an ESD grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  2. Unwrap any cables on the cable manager and remove the cables from the tray. Arrange the cables so that they do not block the front of the cable manager and tray, and secure them with temporary fasteners so that they are not supporting their own weight as they hang from the connector.

    Caution: Do not let fiber-optic cable hang free from the connector. Do not allow fastened loops of cable to dangle, which stresses the cable at the fastening point.

  3. Simultaneously pull the two releases labeled PULL on the cable manager. Lift it up and outward to lock it in place to access the air filter.
  4. Slide the air filter tray out of the chassis.
  5. Lift the air filter out of the air filter tray.
