Installing a Network and Services Processing Card in an SRX1400 Services Gateway

 

You install the NSPC in the CFM slots labeled 1 and 3 in the front panel of the SRX1400 Services Gateway. These two slots combine into a double-wide slot that accommodates the NSPC.

Before installing your card, see SRX1400 Services Gateway Front Panel to identify the CFM1 and CFM3 slots.

Note

You can install either an NSPC, or a combination of SRX3000 Series Services Gateway Network Processing Card (NPC) and Services Processing Card (SPC), on the SRX1400 Services Gateway. You must use a double-wide tray with the combination of NPC and SPC.

Note

If an NSPC is not present, you must install a filler cover to shield the empty slots 1 and 3 and to (shown in Figure 1) to shield the empty slots and to allow cooling air to circulate properly through the device.

To install an NSPC:

  1. Attach an ESD grounding strap to your bare wrist and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.

    For more information about ESD, see Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage to the SRX1400 Services Gateway.

  2. Place the card on an antistatic mat or remove it from its electrostatic bag.
  3. Identify the double-wide CFM 1 and 3 slot on the services gateway where you will install the NSPC.

    See SRX1400 Services Gateway Front Panel for details about where the individual modules can be installed.

  4. Remove the double-wide filler cover from the slot by loosening its screws and sliding it out of the slot. Save the filler cover after removing it from the slot, in case you need it when you pack or move the chassis at a later time.
  5. Orient the NSPC so that the faceplate faces you. Slide the NSPC all the way into the card cage until you feel resistance. See Figure 2.

  6. Press both of the ejector handles inward to seat the NSPC.
  7. Tighten the screws on either side of the card.

    You can proceed with installing other hardware components, or power supplies, or connecting to a management device. See Powering On the SRX1400 Services Gateway to power on the SRX1400 Services Gateway.
