Install and Maintain the Front Door and its Components on the PTX10008 Router

The front door is required on the PTX10008 to protect fiber-optic cabling and to provide additional protection from electromagnetic interference (EMI). You can install the front door with or without the optional cable management system.

The PTX10008 supports two types of front doors:

  1. The door with the part number JNP10008-FRNT-PNL that supports side EMI deflectors.
  2. The door with the part number JNP10008-FRPNL1 that supports side EMI deflectors, an air filter.

Install the Front Door on the PTX10008 Router

Before you install the front door, ensure that you have the following tools and parts available:

  • A Phillips (+) screwdriver, number 2

  • Front door and side EMI deflectors (provided in the front door kit)

  • Base bracket set (two base brackets—one right base bracket and one left base bracket; provided)

  • Latch bracket set (two latch brackets—one right latch bracket and one left latch bracket; provided)

  • Eight Phillips flat-head mounting screws (provided in the front door kit)

  • An Electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap (provided in the accessory kit)

  • (For JNP10008-FRPNL1) Three cable seals—Two cable seals for the right side and one cable seal for the left side (provided in the front door kit)

  • (For JNP10008-FRPNL1) Air filter (provided in the front door kit)

To install the front door:

  1. Wrap and fasten one end of the ESD grounding strap around your bare wrist and connect the other end of the strap to the ESD point on the front of the chassis. See Figure 1.

  2. Remove the plastic bag that is taped to the front door. This bag holds the latch brackets, base brackets, and screws. See Figure 2. The base brackets are larger than the latch brackets.

  3. Attach the right and left base brackets to the bottom front of the chassis. Attach the two latch brackets to the chassis. Screw holes are located for each latch bracket between the top line card slot and the Routing and Control Boards (RCBs). Use the Phillips screwdriver to attach the base brackets to the lower front of the chassis using four of the supplied flat-head screws. See Figure 3.

  4. Install the cable seals.
    1. Remove the top right mounting screw next to the RCB by using the Phillips screwdriver. The mounting screws attach the chassis flanges to the 4-post rack.
    2. Align the hole of the RCB cable seal over the mounting hole in the flange. Fasten the cable seal and flange to the rack by using the Phillips screwdriver to tighten the mounting screw.
    3. Loosen the five mounting screws next to the line card slots along one side of the chassis.
    4. Position the keyhole slots of one of the long cable seals over the mounting screws. The long cable seals are not interchangeable; there is a right cable seal and a left cable seal. Install the cable seals so that the keyhole slots are on the inside, next to the line card. See Figure 4.

    5. Slide the keyhole slot down behind the mounting screws and align the cable seals with the chassis. Tighten the mounting screw with a Phillips screwdriver.
    6. Repeat Step 4.c through Step 4.e for the other cable seal.
  5. If you have not yet installed the line cards, or the optional cable management system, do that now before attaching the door. See Install a PTX10008 Line Card and Install the PTX10008 Cable Management System.
  6. Lift the front door and rest it on the two base brackets.
  7. Slide the door on the bracket guides until it engages on the two ramps.
  8. Tilt the door toward the chassis until it is vertical with the chassis. The release buttons on the side of the door allow the door to latch into place. See Figure 5 for JNP10008-FRNT-PNL front door or Figure 6 for JNP10008-FRPNL1 front door.

  9. Install the side EMI deflectors.
    Note:

    There are mounting points to attach the side EMI deflectors on JNP10008-FRNT-PNL and three mounting points to attach the side EMI deflectors on JNP10008-FRPNL1.

    1. Align the knobs of the right side EMI deflector over the mounting holes on the right side of the front door. Turn the knobs clockwise to fasten the side EMI deflector to the front door. See Figure 7 for JNP10008-FRNT-PNL or Figure 8 for JNP10008-FRPNL1.
    2. Repeat the step to install the other side EMI deflector on the left side of the front door.

Install the Air Filter in the JNP10008-FRPNL1 Front Door

The JNP10008-FRPNL1 front door supports an air filter to keep the dust away from the chassis. You must replace the air filter every 6 months.

Note:

The maximum supported temperature for normal operation must be lower by 3° C when the air filter is new and lower by 6° C when the air filter is at the end of its life.

Before you install the air filter on the front door:

  • Ensure that you have followed all safety warnings and cautions.

  • Ensure you understand how to prevent ESD damage. See Prevention of Electrostatic Discharge Damage.

  • Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available:

    • An ESD grounding strap (provided in the accessory kit)

    • Phillips (+) screwdriver, number 2

To install the air filter:

  1. Wrap and fasten one end of the ESD grounding strap around your bare wrist and connect the other end of the strap to the ESD point on the front of the chassis. See Figure 1.
  2. Turn the thumbscrews of the air filter frame anti-clockwise and flip the air filter frame over to expose the air filter slot. See Figure 9.
