Safety recommendations

WARNING

WARNING!

Only qualified personnel can install and remove the AP and its accessories. You must read all safety instructions carefully before working with the AP.

 

To avoid possible bodily injury and equipment damage, read the following safety recommendations before installing the AP. Note that the recommendations do not cover every possible hazardous condition.

·          Take adequate safety measures to avoid bodily injury and device damage.

·          Place the AP in a dry and flat location and take anti-slip measures.

·          Keep the AP clean and dust-free.

·          Do not place the AP in a moist area and avoid liquid intrusion.

·          Keep the AP and installation tools away from walkways.

Site preparation

Before installing the AP, examine the installation site and make sure the AP will operate in a favorable environment. Make sure the temperate and humidity at the installation site meet the requirements in Table1-1.

Pre-installation tasks

Before installing the AP, perform the following tasks:

·          Connect the AP to a power source and the network. Examine the LEDs to verify that the AP is operating correctly. For information about AP LEDs, see "LEDs."

·          Record the MAC address and serial number at the rear of the AP for future use.

·          Make sure you have completed cabling at the installation site.

Determining the installation position

Determine the installation position by observing the following principles:

·          Few obstacles such as wall exist between the AP and clients.

·          The AP is far away from electronic devices (such as microwave oven) that might generate radio frequency (RF) noise.

·          The AP does not hinder people’s daily work and life.

·          The place is not water seeping, water soaking, or condensing.

Mounting the AP

The AP can be installed only indoors. You can mount the AP on a wall or a ceiling.

Mounting the AP on a wall

1.        Place the mounting bracket against the wall and mark the installation holes on the wall.

Figure2-2 Marking the installation holes on the wall

 

2.        Drill holes with a diameter of 6 mm (0.24 in) and a depth of 30 mm (1.18 in) at the marked locations, as shown in Figure2-3.

Figure2-3 Drilling holes in the wall

 

3.        Insert a screw anchor into each hole, and tap the screw anchor with a rubber hammer until it is all flush with the wall surface, as shown in Figure2-4.

Figure2-4 Hammering the screw anchor into the wall

 

4.        Insert the screws through the installation holes in the wall bracket into the holes in the wall. Fasten the screws to secure the mounting bracket to the wall.

Figure2-5 Attaching the mounting bracket to the wall

 

5.        Position the four pegs on the AP into the keyhole slots in the mounting bracket and then slide the AP down until it clicks into place, as shown in Figure2-6.

Figure2-6 Attaching the AP to the mounting bracket

 

Mounting the AP on a ceiling

CAUTION

CAUTION:

The ceiling for installing the AP must be less than 18 mm (0.71 in) in thickness, and can bear a load of 5 kg (11.02 lb). If you must install the AP on a ceiling not strong enough, use boards to reinforce the ceiling.

 

To mount the AP on a ceiling:

1.        Remove the ceiling tile.

2.        Place the mounting bracket against the ceiling tile and mark the installation holes on the ceiling tile.Drill three holes with a diameter of 6 mm (0.24 in) at the marked positions, as shown in Figure2-7.

Figure2-7 Drilling holes in the ceiling tile

 

3.        Thread the pan-head screws through the installation holes in the mounting bracket and into the holes in the ceiling tile. Fasten washers and nuts at the other side of the ceiling to secure the mounting bracket to the ceiling, as shown in Figure2-8.

Figure2-8 Attaching the mounting bracket to the ceiling

 

4.        Position the four pegs on the AP into the keyhole slots in the mounting bracket and slide the AP until it clicks into place, as shown in Figure2-9.

Figure2-9 Attaching the AP to the mounting bracket

 

5.        Verify that the AP is securely installed to prevent it from falling off.

Connecting the AP to a power source

IMPORTANT

IMPORTANT:

The cable cover is not required in the following conditions:

·      Shielded network cables are used to connect Ethernet ports on the AP.

·      A power adapter with a straight connector is used to supply power to the AP.

 

You can supply power to the AP by using a local power source or through 802.3af/802.at PoE as required. Before powering the AP, make sure the power source (the local power source or the PSE) is reliably grounded.

Connecting a PoE power source

CAUTION

CAUTION:

The AP is to be connected only to PoE networks without routing to the outside plant.

 

To power the AP through PoE, use an Ethernet cable to connect an Ethernet port on a PoE switch to the 5GE/PoE+ port on the AP. After connecting all cables to the AP, attach the cable cover securely to the AP.

Figure2-10 Powering the AP through PoE

 

Connecting a local power source

You can use an AC/DC power adapter to connect the AP to a local power source. No power adapter is provided with the AP. Prepare one yourself as required. Table2-1 describes the power adapter specifications.

Check after power-on

Examine the LEDs on the AP after you power on it to verify that the AP is operating correctly. For more information about AP LEDs, see "LEDs."

Connecting the AP to the network

All AP settings are configured on the AC. To verify the network connectivity of the AP, execute the display wlan ap all command on the AC. If the AP status is R/M, the AP has been connected to the network.
