Chassis hardware information

This section introduces FortiGate-7121F hardware components and accessories including power requirements and FIMs and FPMs that can be installed in the chassis.

Shipping components

The FortiGate-7121F chassis ships pre-assembled with the following components:

  • The 16U FortiGate-7121F chassis.
  • Two FIMs.
  • Up to ten FPMs.
  • Two System Management Modules (SMMs) in the front of the chassis. (SMMs are not field replacable. If a SMM fails, you must RMA the chassis. The chassis will continue to operate with one or no operating SMMs.)
  • Eight 2000W Power Supply Units (PSUs).
  • Six cooling fan trays installed in the back of the chassis.
  • Eight FPM blank panels installed in chassis slots 5 to 12. The FPM blank panels are part of the chassis package and all blank panels should be kept available in case an FPM needs to be removed from the chassis. You can purchase additional FPM blank panels.
  • Eight power cords with C15 power connectors.
  • Eight power cord management clamps.
  • One set of 4-post rack mounting components.
  • One set of 2-post rack mounting components.
  • Twenty-four M4x8 flat-head screws.
  • Two M4x6 pan-head screws.
  • Four M5x10 pan-head screws with double-washers.
  • Eight rubber feet.
  • Two USB to RJ-45 RS-232 console cables.
  • One RJ-45 Ethernet cable.
