Compliance

The 1240 series access point complies with UL 2043 for products installed in a building's environmental air handling spaces, such as above suspended ceilings.


Caution Only the fiber-optic power injector (AIR-PWRINJ-FIB) has been tested to UL 2043 for operation in a building's environmental air space; no other power injectors or power modules have been tested to UL 2043 and they should not be placed in a building's environmental air space, such as above suspended ceilings.
