Chassis Lifting Guidelines for a QFX3008-I Interconnect Device
The weight of a fully loaded QFX3008-I Interconnect device is approximately 650 lb (295 kg). Observe the following guidelines for lifting and moving the device:
Before moving the device to a site, ensure that the site meets the power, environmental, and clearance requirements specified in the Site Preparation Checklist for a QFX3008-I Interconnect Device.
Do not attempt to lift the QFX3008-I Interconnect device by yourself. We recommend using a mechanical lift rated for at least 750 lb (340.2 kg) to install the QFX3008 device in a rack or cabinet. If you do not have a lift rated for 750 lb (341 kg), you must remove all components from the chassis and use a lift rated for at least 250 lb (114 kg). The weight of an empty QFX3008-I Interconnect device and midplane is approximately 205 lb (93 kg).
Because of the QFX3008-I Interconnect device size and weight, we require the use of a mechanical lift to install the QFX3008-I Interconnect device in a rack or cabinet or to move the device from one location to another.
The handles on the QFX3008-I Interconnect device are designed to help maneuver the chassis from the mechanical lift to the mounting shelves in the rack. Do not attempt to lift the chassis using the handles.
Before lifting or moving the device, disconnect all external cables and wires.
