Replacing or Installing Mini-Physical Interface Modules in the SRX210 Services Gateway


Mini-Physical Interface Modules (Mini-PIMs) are circuit boards that you can install in a device for enhanced functionality based on your requirements. They enable you to easily add or change physical interfaces on a device.

The Mini-Physical Interface Module (Mini-PIM) slot is covered with a blank faceplate to maintain proper airflow through the services gateway. Before installing the Mini-PIM, you must remove the faceplate.

See the SRX Series Services Gateways for the Branch Physical Interface Modules Hardware Guide   for information about installing Mini-PIMs.


The Mini-PIMs available on the SRX210 Services Gateway are not hot-swappable. You need to power off the device before removing or installing Mini-PIMs.
