General Site Guidelines

Efficient device operation requires proper site planning and maintenance and proper layout of the equipment, rack or cabinet (if used), and wiring closet.

To plan and create an acceptable operating environment for your device and prevent environmentally caused equipment failures:

  • Keep the area around the chassis free from dust and conductive material, such as metal flakes.

  • Follow prescribed airflow guidelines to ensure that the cooling system functions properly and that exhaust from other equipment does not blow into the intake vents of the device.

  • Follow the prescribed electrostatic discharge (ESD) prevention procedures to prevent damaging the equipment. Static discharge can cause components to fail completely or intermittently over time.

  • Install the device in a secure area, so that only authorized personnel can access the device.

PTX5000 Chassis Grounding Cable and Lug Specifications

To meet safety and electromagnetic interference (EMI) requirements and to ensure proper operation, the PTX5000 must be adequately grounded before power is connected.

Two pairs of threaded inserts (PEM nuts) are provided on the right rear of the chassis for connecting the packet transport to earth ground. The top pair of grounding points fits M6 screws (European), and the bottom pair fits UNC 1/4–20 screws (American). The grounding points are spaced at 0.625-in. (15.86-mm) centers.

The accessory kit shipped with the PTX5000 includes:

  • Two UNC 1/4–20 screws used to secure the grounding cable to the bottom grounding points.

  • Depending on your configuration:

    • 60-A DC PDU—4-AWG (21.2 mm2) cable lugs for connecting DC power and grounding the PTX5000 (see Figure 2).

    • 120-A DC PDU—0-AWG (53 mm2) cable lugs for connecting DC power and grounding the PTX5000 (see Figure 1).

    • High Capacity DC PDU—4-AWG (21.2 mm2) cable lugs for connecting DC power and grounding the PTX5000 (see Figure 2).

CAUTION:

Before device installation begins, a licensed electrician must attach a cable lug to the grounding cable that you supply. A cable with an incorrectly attached lug can damage the PTX5000.

PTX5000 Clearance Requirements for Airflow and Hardware Maintenance

When planning the installation site, allow sufficient clearance around the rack (see Figure 3):

  • For the cooling system to function properly, the airflow around the chassis must be unrestricted.

    Note:

    If you mount the chassis in a cabinet, be sure that ventilation is sufficient to prevent overheating.

  • For service personnel to remove and install hardware components, there must be adequate space at the front and back of the chassis. At least 24 in. (61.0 cm) are required both in front of and behind the PTX5000. NEBS GR-63 recommends that you allow at least 30 in. (72.6 cm) behind the rack.

  • Additional clearance is required to accommodate the depth of the following components:

    • Front cable management system—3.8 in. (9.7 cm) additional depth in the front of the chassis.

    • Front door—5.5 in. (14 cm) additional depth in the front of the chassis.

    • Rear cable management system—5.5 in. (14 cm) additional depth in the rear of the chassis.

Site Electrical Wiring Guidelines

Table 6 describes the factors you must consider while planning the electrical wiring at your site.

Warning:

You must provide a properly grounded and shielded environment and use electrical surge-suppression devices.

Avertissement Vous devez établir un environnement protégé et convenablement mis à la terre et utiliser des dispositifs de parasurtension.

Table 6: Site Electrical Wiring Guidelines

Site Wiring Factor

Guidelines

Signaling limitations

If your site experiences any of the following problems, consult experts in electrical surge suppression and shielding:

  • Improperly installed wires cause radio frequency interference (RFI).

  • Damage from lightning strikes occurs when wires exceed recommended distances or pass between buildings.

  • Electromagnetic pulses (EMPs) caused by lightning damage unshielded conductors and electronic devices.

Radio frequency interference

To reduce or eliminate RFI from your site wiring, do the following:

  • Use a twisted-pair cable with a good distribution of grounding conductors.

  • If you must exceed the recommended distances, use a high-quality twisted-pair cable with one ground conductor for each data signal when applicable.

Electromagnetic compatibility

If your site is susceptible to problems with electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), particularly from lightning or radio transmitters, seek expert advice.

Some of the problems caused by strong sources of electromagnetic interference (EMI) are:

  • Destruction of the signal drivers and receivers in the device

  • Electrical hazards as a result of power surges conducted over the lines into the equipment

Rack Requirements for the PTX5000

Rack Size and Strength

The PTX5000 is designed for installation in a rack that complies with either of the following standards:

  • A 19-in. rack as defined in Cabinets, Racks, Panels, and Associated Equipment (document number EIA-310-D) published by the Electronics Components Industry Association (http://www.ecianow.org/).

  • A 600-mm rack as defined in the four-part Equipment Engineering (EE); European telecommunications standard for equipment practice (document numbers ETS 300 119-1 through 119-4) published by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (http://www.etsi.org). The horizontal spacing between the rails in a rack that complies with this standard is usually wider than the mounting brackets, which measure 19 in. (48.3 cm) from outer edge to outer edge. Use approved wing devices to narrow the opening between the rails as required.

  • A 23-in. rack using appropriate 23-in. to 19-in. rack adapters and an appropriate installation shelf which supports the chassis at the correct vertical position to properly line up the rack mount holes. Juniper Networks does not supply this hardware, but consideration for the size and weight of the chassis is important for a safe installation. Juniper recommends the use of single-sided panel adapters of at least 10 U in height, using as many as needed to fully overlap the chassis rack mount bracket for this type of installation.

The rack rails must be spaced widely enough to accommodate the chassis's external dimensions: 62.5 in. (158.8 cm) high, 33.1 in. (84.1 cm) deep, and 17.5 in. (44.5 cm) wide. The outer edges of the mounting brackets extend the width to 19 in. (48.3 cm). The front cable management system adds 3.8 in. (9.7 cm) to the depth. If the front door is used, this adds 5.5 in. (14 cm) to the depth of the chassis. The rear cable management system adds 5.5 in. (14 cm) to the depth of the chassis.

The spacing of rails and adjacent racks must also allow for the clearances around the chassis and rack that are specified in PTX5000 Clearance Requirements for Airflow and Hardware Maintenance.

For instructions about installing the mounting hardware, see Installing the PTX5000 Mounting Hardware for a Four-Post Rack or Cabinet.

The chassis height of 62.5 in. (158.8 cm) high is approximately 35.7 U. A U is the standard rack unit defined in Cabinets, Racks, Panels, and Associated Equipment (document number EIA-310-D) published by the Electronics Industry Association. You can install one chassis in a rack that has at least 35.7 U of usable vertical space.

The rack must be strong enough to support the weight of the fully configured PTX5000, up to about 1,200 lb (544.3 kg).

Note:

In an open-frame rack, center-mounting is required because the more even distribution of weight provides greater stability. For center-mounting, you use the mounting brackets attached to the center of the chassis for rack mounting.

Figure 4: Typical Open-Frame RackTypical Open-Frame Rack

Spacing of Mounting Bracket and Flange Holes

The holes in the mounting brackets and front-mount flanges used to attach the chassis to a rack are spaced at 3 U (5.25 in. or 13.3 cm). The PTX5000 can be mounted in any rack that provides holes spaced at those distances.

Connection to Building Structure

Always secure the rack to the structure of the building. If your geographical area is subject to earthquakes, bolt the rack to the floor. For maximum stability, also secure the rack to ceiling brackets.
