Installing the SRX5800 Services Gateway Using a Mechanical Lift

Because of the services gateway’s size and weight—up to 378 lb (172 kg) depending on the configuration—we strongly recommend that you install the services gateway using a mechanical lift. If you do not use a lift to install the services gateway, see Installing the SRX5800 Services Gateway Chassis in the Rack Manually for complete instructions to install the services gateway safely.

Caution: Before front mounting the services gateway in a rack, have a qualified technician verify that the rack is strong enough to support the services gateway's weight and is adequately supported at the installation site.

To install the services gateway using a lift (see Figure 30):

  1. Ensure the rack is in its permanent location and is secured to the building. Ensure that the installation site allows adequate clearance for both airflow and maintenance.
  2. Load the services gateway onto the lift, making sure it rests securely on the lift platform.
  3. Using the lift, position the services gateway in front of the rack or cabinet, centering it in front of the mounting shelves.
  4. Lift the chassis approximately 0.75 in. above the surface of the mounting shelves and position it as close as possible to the shelves.
  5. Carefully slide the services gateway onto the mounting shelves so that the bottom of the chassis and the mounting shelves overlap by approximately two inches.
  6. Slide the services gateway onto the mounting shelves until the center-mounting brackets or front-mounting flanges contact the rack rails. The shelves ensure that the holes in the center-mounting brackets and the front-mounting flanges of the chassis align with the holes in the rack rails.
  7. Move the lift away from the rack.
  8. To install the services gateway in an open-frame rack, install a mounting screw into each of the open mounting holes aligned with the rack, starting from the bottom.
  9. Visually inspect the alignment of the services gateway. If the services gateway is installed properly in the rack, all the mounting screws on one side of the rack should be aligned with the mounting screws on the opposite side and the services gateway should be level.
