Installing a Services Processing Card

The SRX 3400 and SRX 3600 services gateway supports up to 7 Services Processing Cards (SPCs). You can install SPCs in any CFM slot, but we recommend that you install SPCs in rear panel slots to leave room for IOCs in the front panel slots.

Note: If a slot is not occupied by a card, you must install a blank panel must to shield the empty slot and to allow cooling air to circulate properly through the device.

To install an SPC:

  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. For more information about ESD, see Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage.
  2. If you have not already done so, power off the device by pressing the Power button on the front panel of the Switch Fabric Board (SFB) for three to five seconds.

    The PWR LED blinks to show you that the device is shutting down. Wait for the device to shut down before proceeding.

  3. Place the card on an antistatic mat or remove it from its electrostatic bag.
  4. Identify the slot on the services gateway where you will install the SPC.
  5. Orient the SPC so that the faceplate faces you. Slide the SPC all the way into the card cage until you feel resistance. See Figure 2.
  6. Tighten the screws on either side of the card.

  7. If you plan to install any additional SPCs, repeat steps Step 3 through Step 6.

Warning: Never lift the services gateway using the handles on the front panels of the SPCs or other CFM cards. The handles might come off, causing the chassis to drop and inflicting possible grave injury.
