Unpacking ERX-14xx Models
ERX-14xx models come boxed, bolted, and strapped to a skid. For your convenience, Juniper Networks recommends that you unpack the E-series router in the location where you want to install it.
Heavy-Equipment Warning: Three people are required to install the E-series router in a rack: two to lift the system into position and one to screw it to the rack.
To unpack ERX-14xx models:
- Cut the two straps that secure the carton to the skid, open the carton from the top, and remove the box of accessories that sits on top of the router.
- Unlock the four plastic clips that hold the box to the skid by squeezing them in their center and pulling out, and then lift the carton off the router.
- Remove the three screws that attach each of the two L-brackets to the router.
- To avoid scratching the router when removing it from the skid, detach one of the L-brackets from the skid by removing the three screws. See Figure 2-1.
