Connecting the SRX5800 to External Devices
Tools and Parts Required for SRX5800 Services Gateway Connections
To connect the device to management devices and IOCs, you need the following tools and parts:
Phillips (+) screwdrivers, numbers 1 and 2
2.5-mm flat-blade (-) screwdriver
2.5 mm Phillips (+) screwdriver
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding wrist strap
Connecting the SRX5800 Services Gateway to a Management Console or an Auxiliary Device
To use a system
console to configure and manage the Routing Engine, connect it to
CONSOLE port on the Routing Engine.
To use a laptop, modem, or other auxiliary device, connect it to the
AUX port on the Routing Engine. Both ports accept a cable
with an RJ-45 connector. One serial cable with an RJ-45 connector
and a DB-9 connector is provided with the services gateway. To connect
a device to the
CONSOLE port and another device
AUX port, you must supply an additional
To connect a management console or auxiliary device:
- Plug the RJ-45 end of the serial cable (Figure 1 shows the connector)
CONSOLEport on the Routing Engine. Figure 2 shows the ports.
- Plug the socket DB-9 end into the device's serial port.
For console devices, configure the serial port to the following values:
Connecting the SRX5800 Services Gateway to a Network for Out-of-Band Management
To connect the Services Gateway
Routing Engine to a network for out-of-band management, connect an
Ethernet cable with RJ-45 connectors to the
ETHERNET port on the Routing Engine. One Ethernet cable is provided with
the services gateway. To connect to the
ETHERNET port on the Routing Engine:
- Plug one end of the Ethernet cable (Figure 3 shows the connector)
ETHERNETport on the Routing Engine. Figure 4 shows the port.
- Plug the other end of the cable into the network device.
Connecting an SRX5800 Services Gateway to an External Alarm-Reporting Device
To connect the services gateway
to external alarm-reporting devices, attach wires to the
YELLOW relay contacts on
the craft interface. (See Figure 5.) A system condition that triggers the red or yellow alarm
LED on the craft interface also activates the corresponding alarm
The terminal blocks that plug into the alarm relay contacts are supplied with the services gateway. They accept wire of any gauge between 28-AWG and 14-AWG (0.08 and 2.08 mm2), which is not provided. Use the gauge of wire appropriate for the external device you are connecting.
To connect an external device to an alarm relay contact (see Figure 5):
- Prepare the required length of wire with gauge between 28-AWG and 14-AWG (0.08 and 2.08 mm2).
- While the terminal block is not plugged into the relay contact, use a 2.5-mm flat-blade screwdriver to loosen the small screws on its top. With the small screws on its top facing upward, insert wires into the slots in the front of the block based on the wiring for the external device. Tighten each screw to secure the corresponding wire.
- Plug the terminal block into the relay contact, and use a 2.5-mm flat-blade screwdriver to tighten the screws on the face of the block. See Figure 6.
- Attach the other end of the wires to the external device.
To attach a reporting device for the other kind of alarm, repeat the procedure.
Connecting Network Cables to SRX5800 Services Gateway IOCs and Port Modules
To connect the IOCs, MPCs, and port modules to the network (see Figure 7):
- Have ready a length of the type of cable used by the component.
- Remove the rubber safety plug from the cable connector
Do not look directly into a fiber-optic transceiver or into the ends of fiber-optic cables. Fiber-optic transceivers and fiber-optic cables connected to a transceiver emit laser light that can damage your eyes.
Do not leave a fiber-optic transceiver uncovered except when inserting or removing a cable. The safety cap keeps the port clean and prevents accidental exposure to laser light.
- Insert the cable connector into the cable connector port
on the faceplate.
The XFP cages and optics on the components are industry standard parts that have limited tactile feedback for insertion of optics and fiber. You need to insert the optics and fiber firmly until the latch is securely in place.
- Arrange the cable in the standard or extended cable manager
to prevent it from dislodging or developing stress points. Secure
the cable so that it is not supporting its own weight as it hangs
to the floor. Place excess cable out of the way in a neatly coiled
loop. Placing fasteners on the loop helps to maintain its shape.
Avoid bending a 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.
Do not let fiber-optic cables hang free from the connector. Do not allow the fastened loops of a cable to dangle, which stresses the cable at the fastening point.
