TX Matrix Plus Switch-Fabric Chassis Description

 

The TX Matrix Plus router is a modular, rack-mountable system that can be installed in one standard 23-in. wide, 78-in. high, EIA telco rack.The TX Matrix Plus switch-fabric chassis is a rigid sheet metal structure that houses all the other system components. The chassis measures 52 in. (132.1 cm or approximately 29.7 U) high, 21.4 in. (54.4 cm) wide, and 36.2 in. (91.9 cm) deep. The cable management comb assembly that installs on top of the chassis adds 17 in. (43.2 cm or approximately 9.7 U) to the height. You can install a TX Matrix Plus router in a rack that has at least 39.4 U of usable vertical space. The cable management system on the rear of the chassis adds 9 in. (22.86 cm) to the depth.

The chassis installs into 23-in. equipment racks or telco racks. One TX Matrix Plus router can be installed into a (44-U) rack, if the rack can handle the maximum configuration weight of 925 lb (420 kg).

The chassis includes the following features:

  • A pair of metal front-mounting flanges used to mount the chassis in a four-post rack.

  • A pair of metal center-mounting brackets used to mount the chassis in an open-frame rack.

  • Upper and lower handles on each side to facilitate positioning the TX Matrix Plus router in the rack. Do not use the handles to lift the TX Matrix Plus router.

  • Four electrostatic discharge points (banana plug receptacles), two in the front above and below the left front air filters and two in the rear near the right rear fan trays.
