T320 Chassis Description


The T320 Core Router chassis is a rigid sheet metal structure that houses all the other router components (see Figure 1 and Figure 2). The chassis measures 25.13 in. (63.82 cm) high, 31.4 in. (79.8 cm) deep, and 17.43 in. (44.3 cm) wide. The chassis can be installed into many types of racks or cabinets.

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

  • A pairs of center-mounting metal brackets for center-mounting the chassis in an open-frame rack.

  • Front-mounting flanges for front-mounting in an open-frame rack, or for mounting in a four-post rack or cabinet.

  • Handles on each side to facilitate positioning the router in the rack. Do not use the handles to lift the router.

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


    Before removing or installing any components of a functioning router, attach an ESD strap to one of the two ESD points on the chassis and attach the other end of the strap around your bare wrist. Failure to use an ESD strap could result in damage to the router and its components.
