Overview

The power injector combines 56-VDC power (supplied by internal power supply) with the data signal, sending both to the access point. The power injector provides up to 80 W over all four wire pairs of shielded, outdoor rated Ethernet cable. The power injector Ethernet cables are limited to a total length of 328 ft (100 m) maximum from the switch to the access point. Also, the Ethernet cable from the power injector to the access point is limited to a maximum of 140 ft and a minimum of 10 ft. The wire gauge of the cable must be 26AWG.

The Ethernet cable from the switch to the power injector must be a shielded CAT5e or higher Ethernet cable. The Ethernet cable from the power injector to the access point must be a shielded outdoor-rated CAT5e or higher Ethernet cable with a 0.20 to 0.35 inch diameter.

A shielded, outdoor Ethernet cable connects the power injector to a 10/100/1000 Ethernet switch, hub, or network, and another shielded, outdoor cable carries power and data to the access point's Ethernet port. The power injector's AC power receptacle connects an approved AC power cord to a wall outlet or power strip. The power injector can be mounted on most horizontal and vertical surfaces, but must be mounted in a vertical orientation to comply with safety requirements.

Figure 1 identifies the power injector's connections.

Note To comply with FCC regulations, the length of Ethernet cable connecting the power injector to the access point cannot be less than 10 ft (3 m).



Note The PoE-out port on the access point is disabled when using the power injector.


Mounting the Power Injector


Caution All mounting methods on any wall surface is subject to the acceptance of local jurisdiction.


Caution When mounting the power injector on a vertical surface such as a wall, do not mount it horizontally. It must be mounted vertically to comply with safety requirements.

You can mount the power injector to most vertical or horizontal surfaces. The power injector does not ship with a mounting kit. You must provide the fasteners for the surface on which you intend to mount the access point.

The power injector has two elongated mounting tabs, one on each end, that you can use to secure it to the surface. To mount the power injector using these tabs, you will need two fasteners at least 0.62-in (16 mm) long of the appropriate type for the surface on which you are mounting the power injector on.

Follow these steps to mount the power injector on a horizontal or vertical surface. The procedure may vary depending on what type of surface you are mounting the power injector on. Also, it may be helpful to refer to Figure 1.


Step 1 Use the power injector to mark the positions of the mounting tab holes on the surface where you want to mount the power injector. Remember that the power injector must not be mounted horizontally.

Step 2 To mount the power injector using an M4 or #6 wall anchor and screw, follow the steps below.

Step 3 Drill a 5/32-in. (0.15-mm) hole at the locations you marked.

Step 4 Install the wall anchor in the hole.

Step 5 Insert a fastener into the mounting tab holes. Tighten the screw just enough to keep it secure in the wall anchor. The fastener must be at least 0.62-in (16 mm) long.

Step 6 Use a screw driver to tighten the screw into the wall anchor.


Grounding the Power Injector

We recommend that you ground the power injector after installing it. Follow these steps to ground the power injector.


Note Use a minimum 12 AWG or 2.5 mm cross-sectional area, 90oC, copper, green/yellow conductor for permanent ground connection.



Step 1 Attach the wire to a UL listed ring lug, suitable for conductor size. Be sure to double crimp the connection.

Step 2 Attach the ring lug to a mounting tab on the power injector.

Step 3 Attach other end of the wire to a permanent ground connection in the building installation.


Installing the Power Injector

Follow these steps to install the power injector:


Step 1 Plug a shielded outdoor rated Ethernet cable into the port on the power injector labeled To AP.


Warning To reduce the risk of fire, use only No. 26 AWG or larger telecommunication line cord. Statement 1023

Note To comply with FCC regulations, the length of Ethernet cable connecting the power injector to the access point cannot be less than 10 ft (3 m).


Step 2 Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the Ethernet Port on the access point.


Note For detailed information about connecting the Ethernet cable on the access point, see the Cisco Aironet 1520 Series Outdoor Mesh Access Point Hardware Installation Guide. This guide is available at cisco.com.


Step 3 Plug a shielded outdoor rated Ethernet cable into the port labeled To Switch on the power injector.


Warning To reduce the risk of fire, use only No. 26 AWG or larger telecommunication line cord. Statement 1023

Step 4 Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into your Ethernet switch, hub, or network.


Warning To avoid electric shock, do not connect safety extra-low voltage (SELV) circuits to telephone-network voltage (TNV) circuits. LAN ports contain SELV circuits, and WAN ports contain TNV circuits. Some LAN and WAN ports both use RJ-45 connectors. Use caution when connecting cables. Statement 1021

Note The power injector Ethernet cables are limited to a total length 328 ft (100 m) maximum from the switch to the access point. Also, the Ethernet cable from the power injector to the access point is limited to a maximum of 140 ft and a minimum of 10 ft.



Note The PoE-out port on the access point is disabled when using the power injector.


Step 5 Plug an appropriate power cord into the three-pronged receptacle on the end of the Power Injector

Step 6 Connect the other end of the power cord into a 100-VAC to 240-VAC power source.


Checking the Power Injector LEDs

You can use the AP Pwr, Fault, and AC Pwr LEDs to assess the unit status. Two indications are available: solid green or dark. The LED meanings are as follows:

AP Pwr LED—Turns solid green after successful discovery; indicates that power injector is supplying power to the access point.

Fault LED—Turns solid red when a fault is experienced during discovery mode or power-up.

AC Pwr LED—Turns solid green when power injector is receiving AC power and is ready to provide power to the access point.
