Replacing a Network and Services Processing Card on the SRX1400 Services Gateway


The NSPC is installed on the front panel of the SRX1400 Services Gateway.

To replace the NSPC:

  1. Place an electrostatic bag or antistatic mat on a flat, stable surface.
  2. 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.
  3. Power off the services gateway as described in Powering Off the SRX1400 Services Gateway.
  4. Loosen the captive screws at each end of the NSPC faceplate.
  5. Pull open the ejector handles to unseat the NSPC. See Figure 1.

  6. Grasp the NSPC by the ejector handles and slide it halfway out of the chassis.
  7. Place one hand underneath the NSPC to support it and slide it completely out of the chassis.Caution

    The NSPC can become very warm during operation. Avoid contact with the heat sink on top of the card when you remove it to prevent personal injury.

  8. Place the NSPC on the antistatic mat.
  9. Slide the replacement NSPC into the slot until you feel resistance, and then press the NSPC's faceplate until it engages the connectors.
  10. Tighten the captive screws on the left and right of the NSPC. See Figure 2.

  11. Power on the services gateway, as described in Powering On the SRX1400 Services Gateway. The OK/FAIL LED on the NSPC faceplate should blink green, then light steadily. Note

    If the OK/FAIL LED is red, remove and reinstall the NSPC. If the OK/FAIL LED remains red, the NSPC is not functioning properly. Contact your customer support representative.


    Never lift the services gateway using the handles on the front panels of the NSPC or other CFM cards. The handles might come off, causing the chassis to drop and inflicting possible grave injury.
