Maintain the PTX10016 Line Cards

Line cards on the PTX10016 are field-replaceable units (FRUs) that you can install in any of the line card slots on the front of the chassis. The line cards are hot-insertable and hot-removable: you can remove and replace them without powering off the router or disrupting router functions. You can use the following line cards in a PTX10016 router:

  • PTX10K-LC1101

  • PTX10K-LC1102

  • PTX10K-LC1104

  • PTX10K-LC1105

  • PTX10K-LC1201-36CD

  • PTX10K-LC1202-36MR

  • QFX10000-60S-6Q

Install a Line Card in the PTX10016 Router

Before you install a line card in the PTX10016 router:

  • Ensure that you have taken the necessary precautions to prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage. See Prevention of Electrostatic Discharge Damage.

  • Ensure that you know how to handle and store the line card. See How to Handle and Store PTX10016 Line Cards, RCBs, and SIBs.

  • Inspect the connector edge of the line card for physical damage. Installing a damaged line card might damage the router.

  • Ensure that the router has sufficient power to power the line card while maintaining its n+1 power redundancy. To determine whether the router has enough power available for the line card, use the show chassis power-budget-statistics command if you have Junos OS installed in your router, and the show chassis power command if you have Junos OS Evolved installed in your router.

  • Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available to install a line card in the router:

    • ESD grounding strap (provided in the accessory kit)

    • Phillips (+) screwdriver, number 2

To install a line card in the PTX10016 router:

  1. Wrap and fasten one end of the ESD grounding strap around your bare wrist and connect the other end of the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis. An ESD point is located above the status LED panel on the front of the PTX10016 chassis. See Figure 1.

  3. Remove the line card from the antistatic bag and inspect it for any damage before installing it in the chassis.
    CAUTION:

    Do not lift the line card by holding the edge connectors or the handles on the faceplate. Neither the handles nor the edge connectors can support the weight of the line card. Lifting the line card by the handles or edge connectors might bend them, which would prevent the line cards from being properly seated in the chassis. See Figure 3.

  4. Grasp and lift the line card by the sides.
  5. Slide the line card all the way into the slot until the screws on the handles engage with the chassis.
    CAUTION:

    You must rotate the handles on the line card simultaneously. If you tighten the handles one after the other, the line card might not align correctly and the connectors at the rear of the line card might not engage with the chassis correctly.

  6. Install the line card into the chassis by rotating the handles simultaneously until the card is fully seated and the handles are vertical (see Figure 4).
    Figure 4: Insert the Line Card into the Slot and Rotate the Handles Insert the Line Card into the Slot and Rotate the Handles
  7. Bring the line card online by using the by using request-chassis-fpc slot slot-number online command. If you are unable to use the command, press the online/offline button labeled OFF by using a non-conductive pin tool, such as a toothpick, for one second, and wait for about 15 seconds until the PWR LED turns on and the STS LED blinks. The online/offline button is recessed below the request-chassis-fpc slot slot-number onlinefaceplate directly below the status (STS) LED command. Verify the status information by using the show chassis fpc command.

You can install the optional cable management kit after you install the line card.

Remove a Line Card from the PTX10016 Router

If you have the optional line card cable management system, it is not necessary to remove the cable management system before removing the line card. However, we recommend that you take the line cards offline before removing them.

Before you remove a line card from the PTX10016 router:

  • Ensure that you have taken the necessary precautions to prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage. See Prevention of Electrostatic Discharge Damage.

  • If there are any optical cables (including transceivers installed in the line card), remove them before you remove the line card. See Remove a Transceiver from the PTX10016 Router.

  • Ensure that you know how to handle and store the line card. See How to Handle and Store PTX10016 Line Cards, RCBs, and SIBs.

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

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

    • An antistatic bag or an antistatic mat

      Note:

      Placing a line card in an antistatic bag might require a second person to assist with sliding the line card into the bag.

    • Replacement line card or a cover for the empty slot

To remove a line card from the PTX10016 router:

  1. Place the antistatic bag or antistatic mat on a flat, stable surface.
  2. 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 PTX10016 chassis. There is an ESD point located above the status LED panel on the front of the PTX10016 chassis (see Figure 5).

  3. Label the cables connected to each port on the line card so you can reconnect the cables to the correct ports.
  4. Take the line card offline by using the request chassis fpc slot slot-number offline command. If you are unable to use the command, press the online/offline button labeled OFF by using a non-conductive pin tool, such as a toothpick, for one second, and wait for about 5 seconds until the STS LED is off. The online/offline button is recessed below the faceplate directly below the status (STS) LED. Verify the status information by using the show chassis fpc command.
  5. Unscrew the line card from the chassis by continually turning the handles to the left until the line card is fully unseated. See Figure 6.
    Figure 6: Remove a Line Card from the PTX10016 Router Remove a Line Card from the PTX10016 Router
  6. Using the handles, slide the line card halfway out of the chassis.
    CAUTION:

    Do not stack line cards on top of one another or on top of any other component. Place each line card separately in the antistatic bag or on the antistatic mat placed on a flat, stable surface.

    CAUTION:

    Each PTX10016 line card weighs between 20.9 lb (9.5 kg) and 27.3 lb (12.4 kg). Be prepared to support the full weight as you slide the line card out of the chassis.

  7. Grasp both sides of the line card at midpoint and remove the line card from the chassis. Either have someone assist you in putting the line card into the antistatic bag or rest the card on the antistatic mat. Take care not to bump or store the line cards on the connectors. See Figure 7.

  8. If you are not installing a line card in the emptied line card slot within a short time, install a cover (part number: JNP10K-LC-BLNK) over the slot—align the cover with the slot in the chassis and push it in until it is fully seated. Do this to protect the interior of the chassis from dust or other foreign substances and to ensure that the airflow inside the chassis is not disrupted.

Install the Cable Management System on the PTX10016 Line Card

The PTX10016 cable management system is an optional, orderable kit (part number: JLC-CBL-MGMT-KIT) that you can use to organize and protect optical cabling attached to the line cards. After you install a line card, you can still remove the line card without needing to remove the cable management system.

Ensure that you have a Phillips (+) screwdriver, number 2 available to install the PTX10016 cable management system on a line card.

To install the cable management system (see Figure 8):

  1. Open the shipping carton for cable management system and check that you have:
    • Two handle extensions

    • One cable tray
