Installing the Front Door on an MX10008

 

The front door is required on the MX10008 router to protect fiber optic cabling and to provide additional protection from electromagnetic interference (EMI). The front door can be installed with or without the optional cable management system.

The front door is available in two models:

  • JNP10008-FRNT-PNL, without an air filter

  • JNP10008-FRPNL1, with an air filter

Both models are covered in the following procedures.

Before You Begin

Ensure you have the following tools and parts before you begin:

  • A Phillips (+) screwdriver, number 2

  • Front door (provided with the router chassis)

  • Right base bracket (provided)

  • Left base bracket (provided)

  • 2 interchangeable latch brackets (provided)

  • 8 Phillips flat-head mounting screws (provided)

  • Three cable seals - Two seals for the right side and one for the left side (provided)

Install the Front Door

Install the front door on the front of the chassis after you mount the chassis in a 4-post rack. To install the front door:

  1. Wrap and fasten one end of the ESD grounding strap around your bare wrist and connect the other end of the strap to the ESD point on the front of the chassis. See Figure 1.

  2. Remove the plastic bag that is taped to the front door, which holds the brackets and screws.
  3. Attach the right and left base brackets to the bottom front of the chassis. Use the Phillips screwdriver to attach the base brackets to the lower front of the chassis using four of the supplied flat-head screws.Note

    The base brackets are larger than the latch brackets. The right and left base bracket cannot be interchanged (see Figure 2).

  4. Attach the two latch brackets to the chassis. Screw holes are located for each latch bracket between the top line card slot and the Routing and Control Boards (RCBs). Use the Phillips screwdriver to attach two supplied screws for each bracket. See Figure 3.

  5. Install the cable seals.
    1. Remove the top right mounting screw next to the RCB with the Phillips screwdriver. The mounting screws attach the chassis flanges to the 4-post rack.
    2. Align the hole of the RCB cable seal over the mounting hole in the flange. Fasten the seal and flange to the rack using the Phillips to tighten the mounting screw.
    3. Loosen the five mounting screws next to the line card slots along one side of the chassis.
    4. Position the keyhole slots of one of the long cable seal over the mounting screws. The long cable seals are not interchangeable; there is a right and left seal. Install the seals so that the keyhole slots are on the inside, next to the line card. See Figure 4.

    5. Slide the keyhole slot down behind the mounting screws and align the cable seals with the chassis. Tighten the mounting screw with a Phillips screwdriver.
    6. Repeat Step c through Step e for the remaining cable seal.
  6. If you have not yet installed the line cards, or the optional cable management system, do that now before attaching the door. See Install an MPC in an MX10008 and Install the Cable Management System.
  7. Set the front door into place.
    1. Lift the front door and rest it on the two base brackets.
  8. Slide the door back on the bracket glides until it engages on the two ramps.
  9. Tilt the door towards the chassis until it is vertical with the chassis. The blue release buttons on the side of the door click into place (see Figure 5 ).

Install the Air Filter

If you have the JNP100008-FRPNL1 model of the front door, there is also an air filter to install. Read and follow the following procedure to add the air filter.

To install the air filter in the front door:

  1. Wrap and fasten one end of the ESD grounding strap around your bare wrist and connect the other end of the strap to the ESD point on the front of the chassis. See Figure 6.

  2. Turn the knob of the air filter frame anti-clockwise and move it over the top of the front door. See Figure 7.

    Caution

    Juniper recommends installing the air filter to prevent harmful debris from entering the chassis

  3. Hold the air filter with both hands and insert it into the front door until it stops, see (Figure 8).

  4. Move the air filter frame over the front door and turn the knob on the air filter frame clockwise back in place.
Note

You must replace the filter every 6 months.
