Warning: Two people are required to lift an ERX system. The system is extremely heavy.

To install the system as a freestanding device:

  1. One person should stand on the left side of the system, and the other should stand on the right side.
  2. Grasp the lower back of the unit with one hand and the front flange (see Figure 2-4) with the other.
  3. Bend your knees and carefully lift the unit into position.
  4. Carry the system to the location where it will operate.


Caution: Leave enough space around the system for adequate ventilation. See Appendix A, System Specifications, for details.

  1. Position the router with easy access to the connections that it needs for power, local communications, and remote communications.


Note: Connectors are located on the I/O modules and the power input module. See Figure 2-5. You install these modules from the rear of the router. See Chapter 4, Cabling the ERX System, for cabling installation procedures.
