Installing the Front Doors on a PTX3000

Front doors are installed over the card cage that contains the components in the chassis. Each PTX3000 is shipped with two front doors, one door for each card cage. Captive thumbscrews secure the door to the chassis.

To install an upper or lower card front door on a PTX3000 (see Figure 1):

  1. Gather the following tools:
    • Electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap

    • Phillips (+) screwdriver, number 2

  2. Attach an ESD grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to the ESD point on the chassis.

    During the initial installation before the chassis is grounded, you must connect the wrist strap to an approved site ESD point. See the instructions for your site.

  3. Place the door over the appropriate card cage in the chassis.
  4. Using your fingers, loosely tighten the thumbscrews on each side of the door.
  5. Tighten the screws completely by using a number 2 Phillips (+) screwdriver to secure the door to the chassis.

    If you must return the chassis to Juniper Networks for any reason, you must remove the front doors from the chassis. See Packing the PTX3000 for Shipment in the PTX3000 Packet Transport Router Hardware Guide.
