MX960 Chassis Description

 

The router chassis is a rigid sheet metal structure that houses all the other router components (see Figure 1, Figure 2, and Figure 3). The chassis installs in many types of racks, including 800-mm deep (or larger) enclosed cabinets, standard 19-in. equipment racks, or telco open-frame racks. Two types of chassis are available for the MX960 router:

  • The standard chassis measures 27.75 in. (70.49 cm) high, 17.37 in. (44.11 cm) wide (excluding the mounting flanges and brackets), and 23.0 in. (58.42 cm) deep (from the front-mounting flanges to the rear of the chassis). The standard cable manager extends the depth to 28.0 in. (71.1 cm). Up to three routers can be installed in a 48-U rack if the rack can handle their combined weight, which can be greater than 1,050 lb (476.3 kg).

    Note

    The chassis depth with the high-capacity AC power supply is 30.6" and the depth with high-capacity DC power supply is 32.8".

  • The chassis with the extended cable manager installed measures 36.5 in. (92.7 cm) high, 17.37 in. (44.11 cm) wide, and approximately 29.00 in. (73.7 cm) deep (from the front-mounting flanges to the rear of the extended cable manager). Up to two routers with the extended cable manager can be installed in a 48-U rack if the rack can handle their combined weight, which can be greater than 748 lb (339.28 kg).

Mounting hardware includes front-mounting flanges on the front of the chassis, and two center-mounting brackets attached to the center of the chassis.
