    Overview of Installing a PTX3000 in a Rack

    Before installing the PTX3000 in a rack, verify that you have prepared your site, unpacked the PTX3000 from the shipping crate, and installed the mounting hardware.

    Because of the PTX3000 router’s size and weight—up to 310 lb (140.6 kg) depending on the configuration—you must install the PTX3000 by using a mechanical lift.

    To install the PTX3000:

    1. Gather the tools and parts required to install the PTX3000 in a rack:

      • Mechanical lift
      • Screwdriver appropriate for your mounting screws (a number 1 Phillips (+) screwdriver is required for the mounting screws included in the accessory box
      • Mounting screws appropriate for your rack (ten mounting screws are included in the accessory box)
      • Cage nuts (if required for your rack or cabinet)
    2. Read the safety information in General Safety Guidelines and Warnings and PTX3000 Installation Safety Guidelines.
    3. Install the PTX3000 into the rack.
