General Site Guidelines for Installing the SRX240 Services Gateway


The following precautions help you plan an acceptable operating environment for your SRX240 Services Gateway and avoid environmentally caused equipment failures:

  • For the cooling system to function properly, the airflow around the chassis must be unrestricted. Allow sufficient clearance between the front and back of the chassis and adjacent equipment. Ensure that there is adequate circulation in the installation location.

  • Follow the ESD procedures to avoid damaging the equipment. Static discharge can cause components to fail completely or intermittently over time.

  • Ensure that the blank Mini-PIM panel is installed in the empty slot to prevent any interruption or reduction in the flow of air across internal components.


    Install the device only in restricted areas, such as dedicated equipment rooms and equipment closets, in accordance with Articles 110-16, 110-17, and 110-18 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70.
