Chassis Lifting Guidelines for a QFX3100 Director Device

 

The weight of a fully loaded QFX3100 Director device chassis is approximately 41.2 lb (18.7 kg). Observe the following guidelines for lifting and moving a QFX3100 Director device:

  • Before installing a QFX3100 Director device, read the guidelines in Site Preparation Checklist for a QFX3100 Director Device to verify that the intended site meets the specified power, environmental, and clearance requirements.

  • Before lifting or moving the QFX3100 Director device, disconnect all external cables.

  • As when lifting any heavy object, lift most of the weight with your legs rather than your back. Keep your knees bent and your back relatively straight and avoid twisting your body as you lift. Balance the load evenly and be sure that your footing is solid.
