The weight of a QFX5130-32CD with fans and power supplies is approximately 24.5 lb (11.11 kg). Observe the following guidelines for lifting and moving a QFX5130-32CD:


If you are installing the QFX5130-32CD above 60 in. (152.4 cm) from the floor, either remove the power supplies, fan modules, and any expansion modules before attempting to install the switch, or ask someone to assist you during the installation.

  • Before installing a QFX5130-32CD, read the guidelines in QFX5130-32CD Site Preparation Checklist to verify that the intended site meets the specified power, environmental, and clearance requirements.

  • Before lifting or moving the qfx5130-32CD, disconnect all external cables.

  • As when lifting any heavy object, lift most of the weight with your legs rather than your back. Keep your knees bent and your back relatively straight and avoid twisting your body as you lift. Balance the load evenly and be sure that your footing is solid.
