M10i Chassis Description


The router chassis is a rigid sheet metal structure that houses the other hardware components. The chassis is 17.5 in. (44.5 cm) wide and 18 in. (45.7 cm) deep. The chassis height of 8.7 in. (22.1 cm) enables stacked installation of eight M10i routers in a single floor-to-ceiling rack. For more information, see Installation Safety Warnings for Juniper Networks Devices.

The two mounting brackets (one on each side) extend the chassis width to 19 in. (48.3 cm).

Figure 1 and Figure 2 show front and rear views of the router chassis.

The chassis includes an electrostatic discharge (ESD) point (banana plug receptacle) to protect electronic components from damage due to static electricity, at the front of the chassis, as shown in Figure 1.


Before removing or installing components of a functioning router, attach an ESD strap to an ESD point and place the other end of the strap around your bare wrist. Failure to use an ESD strap could result in damage to the router.

The router must be connected to earth ground during normal operation.
