Unpacking the TX Matrix Plus Router


The TX Matrix Plus router is shipped in a wooden crate. A wooden pallet forms the base of the crate. The TX Matrix Plus router chassis is bolted to this pallet. Quick Start installation instructions and a cardboard accessory box are also included in the shipping crate.

The shipping crate measures 63 in. (160 cm) high, 48 in. (122 cm) wide, and 48 in. (122 cm) deep. The total weight of the crate containing the TX Matrix Plus router and accessories can range from 1100 lb (499 kg).


The TX Matrix Plus router is maximally protected inside the shipping crate. Do not unpack it until you are ready to begin installation.
