Installing SRP I/O and SRP Modules

You should install SRP modules only in chassis slots 6 and 7 of the ERX-1400 series and slots 0 and 1 of the ERX-700 series.



Note: Install the SRP I/O module before you install the SRP module; otherwise, the ERX system diagnostics fail.

Installing an SRP I/O Module

To install an SRP I/O module:

  1. Connect the antistatic wrist strap to the ESD grounding jack on your ERX system.


Caution: When handling modules, use an antistatic wrist strap connected to the ERX system's ESD grounding jack. This action helps to protect the module from damage by electrostatic discharge.

  1. With a Phillips screwdriver, loosen the top and bottom captive screws securing the blank faceplate covering the empty slot. See Figure 3-5.
  2. Remove the faceplate.


Figure 3-5 Removing the blank faceplate


Caution: Always handle the module by its edges. Do not touch the components, pins, leads, or solder connections.

  1. Remove the SRP I/O module from its antistatic bag.
  2. Position the module as follows:
  1. Position the module into the chassis by placing it between the guides of the selected slot, and slide the module until it stops.

Figure 3-6 shows how to install an SRP I/O module in the ERX-1400 series.

  1. Tighten the module's captive screws using a Phillips screwdriver. Turn both screws several times before tightening them completely to allow the module to sit correctly.

  1. Connect the antistatic wrist strap to the ESD grounding jack on your ERX system.


Caution: When handling modules, use an antistatic wrist strap connected to the ERX system's ESD grounding jack. This action helps to protect the module from damage by electrostatic discharge.

  1. Choose the chassis slot where you want to insert the module.

For the ERX-1400 series, use slot 6 or 7; for the ERX-700 series, use slot 0 or 1.

  1. With a Phillips screwdriver, loosen the top and bottom screws that secure the blank faceplate covering the empty chassis slot.
  2. Remove the faceplate.


Caution: Always handle the module by its edges. Do not touch the components, pins, leads, or solder connections.

  1. Remove the SRP module from its antistatic bag.
  2. Make sure that the ejectors are in position 1, as shown in Figure 3-7.

  1. Position the module as follows:
  1. Position the module in the chassis by placing it between the guides of the selected slot, and slide the module until it stops.

The module stops sliding when the ejectors make contact with the front of the chassis. Figure 3-8 shows how to install an SRP module in the ERX-1400 series.

  1. Insert the module into the backplane by simultaneously depressing both ejectors (as shown in Figure 3-7) and exerting forward pressure on the module.
  2. Tighten the module's captive screws using a Phillips screwdriver. Turn both screws several times before tightening them completely to allow the module to sit correctly.
