    Upgrading to TX Matrix Plus TXP-F2S-3D SIBs

    1. Removing the TXP-F2S SIBs
    2. Installing the TXP-F2S-3D SIBs

    Removing the TXP-F2S SIBs

    The F2S SIBs are located in the front of the chassis in slots 0/0 through 4/6. Each TXP-F2S SIB weighs approximately 3.4 lb (1.5 kg).

    To remove the TXP-F2S SIBs (see Figure 1):

    1. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
    2. Release the latch on the ejector handle of the TXP-F2S SIB faceplate.
    3. Flip the ejector handle outward to unseat the TXP-F2S SIB.
    4. Grasp the ejector handle, pull firmly, and slide the TXP-F2S SIB about halfway out of the chassis.
    5. Place one hand underneath the TXP-F2S SIB to support it and slide it completely out of the chassis. Place it on the antistatic mat.

      Caution: Do not stack hardware components on one another after you remove them. Place each component on an antistatic mat resting on a stable, flat surface.

    6. Repeat the procedure for the remaining TXP-F2S SiBs.

    Installing the TXP-F2S-3D SIBs

    To install a TXP-F2S-3D SIB into the front of the chassis (see Figure 2):

    Caution: Be prepared to support the weight of the TXP-F2S-3D SIB (approximately 3.63 lb [1.65 kg]) before you lift it.

    1. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
    2. Lift the TXP-F2S-3D SIB into place and carefully align first the bottom, then the top of the TXP-F2S-3D SIB with the guides inside the card cage.
    3. Carefully slide the TXP-F2S-3D SIB all the way into the card cage until you feel resistance.
    4. Grasp the ejector handle and rotate inward TXP-to seat the TXP-F2S-3D SIB until the ejectors latch into the faceplate.
    5. Tighten the captive screw next to the ejector handle.
