Cisco 7609 Router—36.75 inches (93.35 cm) (21 RU)

Cisco 7609-S Router—36.75 inches (93.35 cm) (21 RU)

Cisco 7613 Router—33.0 inches (83.8 cm) (19 RU)


Note Chassis height is measured in rack units (RU).



Caution If the rack is on wheels, ensure that the brakes are engaged or that the rack is otherwise stabilized.


Note We recommend that you maintain a minimum air space of 6 inches (15 cm) between walls and the chassis air vents and a minimum horizontal separation of 12 inches (30.5 cm) between two chassis to prevent overheating.


The installation hardware is not suitable for use with racks with obstructions (such as a power strip) that could impair access to field-replaceable units (FRUs).


Warning To prevent bodily injury when mounting or servicing this unit in a rack, you must take special precautions to ensure that the system remains stable. The following guidelines are provided to ensure your safety:
 

This unit should be mounted at the bottom of the rack if it is the only unit in the rack.

When mounting this unit in a partially filled rack, load the rack from the bottom to the top with the heaviest component at the bottom of the rack.

If the rack is provided with stabilizing devices, install the stabilizers before mounting or servicing the unit in the rack.


Required Tools

These tools and equipment are required to install the chassis in the rack:

Number 1 and number 2 Phillips-head screwdrivers

3/16-inch flat-blade screwdriver

Tape measure and level

Installing the Shelf Brackets and Crossbar Bracket

If you are installing a Cisco 7609 router, Cisco 7609-S router, or Cisco 7613 router, you must first install the shelf brackets and the crossbar bracket.

To install the shelf brackets and the crossbar bracket, perform these steps:


Step 1 Position one of the two shelf brackets in the rack as shown in Figure 3-1.

Step 2 Secure the shelf bracket to the rack by using three 12-24 x 3/4-inch or 10-32 x 3/4-inch screws.

Step 3 Repeat Steps 1 and 2 for the second shelf bracket. Make sure that the second shelf bracket is level with the first bracket.

Step 4 Attach the crossbar bracket to the back of the shelf brackets using two M3 screws as shown in Figure 3-2.

Figure 3-1 Installing the Shelf Brackets

Figure 3-2 Attaching the Crossbar Bracket to the Shelf Brackets


Installing the Chassis Brackets

The chassis is shipped with the mounting brackets installed on the front of the chassis. These brackets can be installed on the rear of the chassis.

To install the brackets on the rear of the chassis, perform these steps:


Step 1 Remove the screws that secure the brackets to the chassis. (See Figure 3-3 for brackets on Cisco 7603 router for 19" racks, Figure 3-4 for brackets on Cisco 7603-S router for 19" racks, Figure 3-5 for brackets on Cisco 7604 router for 19" racks, Figure 3-6 for brackets on Cisco 7606 router for 19" racks, Figure 3-7 for brackets on Cisco 7606-S router for 19" racks and Figure 3-8 for brackets on Cisco 7609 router, Cisco 7609-S router, and Cisco 7613 router for 19" racks).


Note Figure 3-8 shows the Cisco 7609 router and the Cisco 7609-S router. For 19" brackets, the procedure is the same for the Cisco 7609 router, 7609-S router, and Cisco 7613 Router.



Note The Cisco 7609-S router chassis supports four-post 23" rack-mounting; it does not support a single two-post (Telco) center flange rack-mount. You can accomplish a four-post frame mount by using two by two-post(Telco) racks placed back to back or by using a four-post enclosed rack.



Note The Cisco 7609-S router is shipped with 19" racks. If you are installing the Cisco 7609-S router into a 23" rack, use adapter plates (from Hendry or Newton) to reduce the 23" rack side to side mounting screw pattern back down to a 19" rack dimension. Use the vendor-supplied documentation to attach two of the adaptor plates to the 23" rack.

Step 2 Position one of the brackets against the chassis side, and align the screw holes.

Step 3 Secure the bracket to the chassis with the screws removed in Step 1.

Step 4 Repeat Steps 2 and 3 for the other bracket.


Installing the Router Chassis in the Rack


Warning To prevent personal injury or damage to the chassis, never attempt to lift or tilt the chassis using the handles on modules (such as power supplies, fans, or cards); these types of handles are not designed to support the weight of the unit. Lift the unit only by using handles that are an integral part of the chassis, or by grasping the chassis underneath its lower edge.

To install the router chassis in the equipment rack, perform these steps:


Step 1 Position the chassis in the rack as follows:

a. If the front of the chassis (front panel) is at the front of the rack, insert the rear of the chassis between the mounting posts.

b. If the rear of the chassis is at the front of the rack, insert the front of the chassis between the mounting posts.

Step 2 Align the mounting holes in the bracket (and optional cable guide) with the mounting holes in the equipment rack. (See Figure 3-9 for the Cisco 7603 router, Figure 3-10 for the Cisco 7604 router, Figure 3-11 for the Cisco 7606 router, Figure 3-12 for the Cisco 7606-S router, and Figure 3-13 for the Cisco 7609 router, Cisco 7609-S router, and Cisco 7613 router.)

Verifying Router Chassis Installation

After you finish connecting the modules, you need to verify that the modules, power supplies, power entry modules (PEMs), and fan assemblies are correctly and securely installed. To verify the chassis installation, perform these steps:


Step 1 Verify that the ejector levers of each module are fully closed (parallel to the faceplate) to ensure that the supervisor engine and all modules are fully seated in the backplane connectors.

Step 2 Check the captive installation screws of each module, power supply, PEM, and fan assembly. Tighten any loose captive installation screws.


Note On the Cisco 7603 Router and Cisco 7606 Router, PEM 1 connects the site power source to power supply 1; PEM 2 connects the site power source to power supply 2. If there is only one PEM and one power supply installed in the chassis, verify that they are in the correct bays before powering up the system. See the "PEM" section for PEM and power supply locations.



Warning Power supply captive installation screws must be tight to ensure protective grounding continuity.

Step 3 Verify that all empty module slots have blank faceplates (WS-X6K-SLOT-CVR) installed and that the screws holding the plates in place are tight.

Step 4 For AC-powered systems, turn the switch on the PEM or power supply to the On (|) position to power up the system. For DC-powered systems, move the circuit breaker switch handle to the On (|) position to power up the system.


Warning Blank faceplates and cover panels serve three important functions: they prevent exposure to hazardous voltages and currents inside the chassis; they contain EMI that might disrupt other equipment; and they direct the flow of cooling air through the chassis. Do not operate the system unless all modules, faceplates, front covers, and rear covers are in place.
