Removing the Air Filter on the SRX650 Services Gateway

Caution: Do not run the SRX650 Services Gateway for more than a few minutes without the air filter in place.

Caution: Except during replacement, always keep the air filter in place while the services gateway is operating. 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 components.

A single handle with two screws holds both the fan tray and air filter on the back of the services gateway.

Note: You can replace the air filter while the services gateway is running.

To remove just the air filter:

  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. For more information about ESD, see Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage to the SRX650 Services Gateway.
  2. Use a number 1 Phillips screwdriver to loosen both captive screws on the handle (see Figure 17).
