Card-Cage Cover

Installing the MX2008 Standard EMI Cover

The MPCs require an EMI cover to reduce the risk of radio frequency interference disturbance that affects an electrical circuit because of electromagnetic interference emitted from an external source. The EMI cover is designed to reduce the electromagnetic interference (EMI) to comply with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requirements.

To install the EMI card-cage cover (see Figure 12):

  1. Align the four brackets on either side of the EMI cover with the chassis front-mounting flanges on the outside of the card cage.

    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. Adjust the EMI cover until the four captive screws align with the holes in the front-mounting flanges.
  3. Tighten the four captive screws to secure the EMI cover in place.

To remove the extended electromagnetic interference (EMI) card-cage cover (see Figure 14):

  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. Gripping the flap on the extended EMI cover, tilt it away from the router toward you.
  3. Holding the cover on both sides, lift so that the points on the cover lift out of the grooves on the EMI cover brackets.
  4. Pull the cover away from the router toward you to remove it.
