Remove an ACX710 Router from a Rack or Cabinet

Before removing your ACX710 router from its rack:

If you need to relocate an installed ACX710 router, use the procedure described in this topic.


When you remove multiple devices from a rack, remove the device in the top of the rack first, and proceed to remove the rest of the devices from top to bottom.

  • Ensure that the rack is stable and secured to the building.

  • Ensure that there is enough space to transport the removed router along the path to the new location and to place the router in its new location.

  • Read General Safety Guidelines and Warnings.

  • Use the appropriate power-off sequence to safely power off the device. See Power Off an ACX710 Router.

  • Disconnect the power cords.

  • Ensure that you have disconnected any cables or wires attached to the router ports.

To remove an ACX710 router from a rack or cabinet:

  1. Have one person support the weight of the router while another person uses the screwdriver to remove the front mounting screws that attach the chassis mounting rails to the rack or cabinet.
  2. Slowly slide the router out of the rack, with the mounting rails attached to its sides.
  3. Use the screwdriver to remove the mounting screws that attach the mounting blades that are attached to the rear of the rack or cabinet.
  4. Place the removed screws and mounting blades in a labeled bag. You will need them when you reinstall the router.
  5. Transport the router to your new location.
