Installing the SRX345 Services Gateway into a Rack
You can front-mount the SRX345 Services Gateway in a rack. Many types of racks are acceptable, including four-post (telco) racks, enclosed cabinets, and open-frame racks.
If you are installing multiple devices in one rack, install the lowest one first and proceed upward in the rack.
To install the services gateway in a rack:
- Position a mounting bracket on each side of the chassis.
- Use a number-2 Phillips (+) screwdriver to install the screws that secure the mounting brackets to the chassis. Use either the front mount position, as shown in Figure 1, or the center mount position, as shown in Figure 2.
- Have one person grasp the sides of the services gateway, lift it, and position it in the rack.
- Align the bottom hole in each mounting bracket with a hole in each rack rail, making sure the chassis is level.
- Have a second person install a mounting screw into each of the two aligned holes.
- Install the second screw in each mounting bracket as shown in Figure 3.
- Verify that the mounting screws on one side of the rack are aligned with the mounting screws on the opposite side and that the services gateway is level.
