M320 Chassis Description

 

The router chassis is a rigid sheet metal structure that houses all the other router components (see Figure 1). The chassis measures 34.80 in. (88.4 cm) high, 17.43 in. (44.3 cm) wide, and 25.64 in. (65.1 cm) deep (from the front-mounting flanges to the rear of the chassis). The chassis can be installed in many types of racks or cabinets. For more information, see M320 Cabinet Size and Clearance Requirements, and Rack Requirements for the M320 Router.

The chassis includes the following features (see Figure 1, Figure 2, and Figure 3):

  • One pair of metal adjustable center-mounting brackets that can be attached to one of 11 positions on the side of the chassis. You can use the brackets for mounting the chassis in the rack or cabinet.

  • Two installation handles on the top to facilitate positioning the router in the rack. Do not use the handles to lift the router.

  • Two electrostatic discharge points (banana plug receptacles): one front and one rear.

    Caution

    Before removing or installing components of a 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.
