Overview of Installing the T320 Router Without a Mechanical Lift

 Warning

Because of the router's size and weight—up to 370 lb (168 kg) depending on configuration—we strongly recommend that you install the router using a lift., as described in Installing the T320 Router Using a Mechanical Lift.

If you cannot use a mechanical lift to install the T320 router, you can install it manually. Before installing the router manually, you must first remove components from the chassis, and you must reinstall the components after the router is installed in the rack. At least three people are needed to safely lift the chassis into the rack or cabinet. With components removed, the chassis weighs approximately 131.4 lb (59.6 kg).

To safely install the T320 router without a mechanical lift:

  1. Review the safety information.

    See General Safety Guidelines for Juniper Networks Devices, and T320 Installation Safety Guidelines.

    Note

    To avoid harm to yourself or the router as you install it, follow the safety guidelines and procedures for working with routers. However, providing an exhaustive set of guidelines for working with electrical equipment is beyond the scope of this documentation.

  2. Verify that the site has been prepared for the router installation.

    See T320 Site Preparation Checklist Requirements.

  3. Verify that the mounting hardware has been installed.

    See Installing the T320 Mounting Hardware for a Four-Post Rack or Cabinet or Installing the T320 Mounting Hardware for an Open-Frame Rack..

  4. Remove the router from the shipping crate and verify the parts received.

    See Unpacking the T320 Router.

  5. Gather the tools required to install the router.

    See Tools and Parts Required to Install the T320 Router Without a Mechanical Lift.

  6. Remove components from the chassis to make it easier to install into the rack or chassis.

    See Removing T320 Components from the Chassis.

  7. Install the T320 Chassis in the Rack Manually. With components removed, the chassis weighs approximately 131.4 lb (59.6 kg). At least three people are needed to safely lift the chassis into the rack or cabinet.

    See Installing the T320 Chassis in the Rack Manually.
