Installing the SRX5600 Without a Mechanical Lift

 

Overview of Installing the SRX5600 Services Gateway Without a Mechanical Lift

If you cannot use a mechanical lift to install the services gateway (the preferred method), you can install it manually. Before installing the services gateway manually, you must first remove components from the chassis, and you must reinstall the components once the services gateway is installed in the rack. At least two people are needed to safely lift the chassis into the rack or cabinet. With components removed, the chassis weighs approximately 65 lb (29 kg).

Before installing the services gateway in the rack, read the safety information in Chassis Lifting Guidelines. Remove the services gateway from the shipping container as described in Unpacking the SRX5600 Services Gateway . Install the mounting hardware as described in Installing the SRX5600 Services Gateway Mounting Hardware for a Rack or Cabinet.

Note

An optional air deflector kit is available that lets you install the SRX5600 Services Gateway in a hot aisle/cold aisle ventilation environment.

Tools Required to Install the SRX5600 Services Gateway Without a Mechanical Lift

To install the services gateway, you need the following tools and parts:

  • Phillips (+) screwdrivers, numbers 1 and 2

  • 7/16-in. (11 mm) nut driver

  • ESD grounding wrist strap

Removing the Power Supplies Before Installing the SRX5600 Services Gateway Without a Lift

Remove the leftmost power supply first and then work your way to the right. To remove the AC or DC power supplies for each power supply (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. On an AC-powered services gateway, switch the AC input switch on each power supply to the off  (O) position. On a DC-powered services gateway, Move the DC circuit breaker on each DC power supply to the off (O) position.

    We recommend this even though the power supplies are not connected to power sources.

  3. Loosen the captive screws on the bottom edge of the power supply faceplate.
  4. Pull the power supply straight out of the chassis.

Removing Cards Before Installing an SRX5600 Services Gateway Without a Lift

The services gateway holds up to six cards (IOCs, Flex IOCs, MPCs, SCBs, and SPCs), which are installed horizontally in the front of the device. Each card weighs up to 18.3 lb (8.3 kg), be prepared to accept its full weight.

To remove a card (see Figure 3):

  1. Have ready an antistatic mat for the card. Also have ready rubber safety caps for each port using an optical interface on the card that you are removing.
  2. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  3. Label the cables connected to each port on the card so that you can later reconnect the cables to the correct ports.
  4. If a card uses fiber-optic cable, immediately cover each transceiver and the end of each cable with a rubber safety cap. Arrange the disconnected cables in the cable management system, to prevent the cables from developing stress points.Warning

    Do not look directly into a fiber-optic transceiver or into the ends of fiber-optic cables. Fiber-optic transceivers and fiber-optic cable connected to a transceiver emit laser light that can damage your eyes.

    Caution

    Do not leave a fiber-optic transceiver uncovered except when inserting or removing cable. The safety cap keeps the port clean and prevents accidental exposure to laser light.

    Caution

    Avoid bending fiber-optic cable beyond its minimum bend radius. An arc smaller than a few inches in diameter can damage the cable and cause problems that are difficult to diagnose.

  5. For SCBs, observe these points regarding the ejector handles:
    • When removing or inserting an SCB, ensure that the SCBs or blank panels in adjacent slots are fully inserted to avoid hitting them with the ejector handles. The ejector handles require that all adjacent components be completely inserted so the ejector handles do not hit them, which could result in damage.

    • The ejector handles have a center of rotation and need to be stored toward the center of the board. Ensure the long ends of the ejectors located at both the top and the bottom of the board are vertical and pressed as far as possible toward the center of the board. Once you have installed an SCB, place the ejector handles in their proper position, vertically and toward the center of the board. To avoid blocking the visibility of the LEDs, position the ejectors over the PARK icon.

    • To insert or remove the SCB card, slide the ejector across the SCB horizontally, rotate it, and slide it again another quarter of a turn. Turn the ejector again and repeat as necessary. Use the indexing feature to maximize leverage and to avoid hitting any adjacent components.

  6. Simultaneously turn both the ejector handles counterclockwise to unseat the card.
  7. Grasp the handles and slide the card straight out of the card cage halfway.
  8. Place one hand around the front of the card and the other hand under it to support it. Slide the card completely out of the chassis, and place it on the antistatic mat or in the electrostatic bag.Caution

    The weight of the card is concentrated in the back end. Be prepared to accept the full weight—up to 18.3 lb (8.3 kg)—as you slide the card out of the chassis.

    When the card is out of the chassis, do not hold it by the ejector handles, bus bars, or edge connectors. They cannot support its weight.

    Do not stack cards on top of one another after removal. Place each one individually in an electrostatic bag or on its own antistatic mat on a flat, stable surface.

Installing the SRX5600 Services Gateway Chassis in the Rack Manually

To install the device in the rack (see Figure 4):

Caution

If you are installing more than one services gateway in a rack, install the lowest one first. Installing a services gateway in an upper position in a rack or cabinet requires a lift.

Caution

Before front mounting the services gateway in a rack, have a qualified technician verify that the rack is strong enough to support the services gateway’s weight and is adequately supported at the installation site.

Caution

Lifting the chassis and mounting it in a rack requires two people. The empty chassis weighs approximately 65 lb (29 kg).

  1. Ensure that the rack is in its permanent location and is secured to the building. Ensure that the installation site allows adequate clearance for both airflow and maintenance.
  2. Position the services gateway in front of the rack or cabinet, centering it in front of the mounting shelf. Use a pallet jack if one is available.
  3. With one person on each side, hold onto the bottom of the chassis and carefully lift it onto the mounting shelf.Warning

    To prevent injury, keep your back straight and lift with your legs, not your back. Avoid twisting your body as you lift. Balance the load evenly and be sure that your footing is solid.

  4. Slide the services gateway onto the mounting shelf until the mounting brackets contact the rack rails. The shelf ensures that the holes in the mounting brackets of the chassis align with the holes in the rack rails.
  5. Install a mounting screw into each of the open mounting holes aligned with the rack, starting from the bottom.
  6. Visually inspect the alignment of the services gateway. If the services gateway is installed properly in the rack, all the mounting screws on one side of the rack should be aligned with the mounting screws on the opposite side and the services gateway should be level.
