AC Power Cords for Cisco Aironet 1520 Series Outdoor Mesh Access Points
The Cisco Aironet 1520 series outdoor mesh access point (hereafter called the access point) supports these AC power cord options:
•40-ft (12.2-m) power cord (AIR-CORD-R3P-40NA=) for light pole installations in the US and Canada.
•40-ft (12.2-m) power cord (AIR-CORD-R3P-40UE=) for light pole installations in the European Union.
•4-ft (1.2-m) streetlight power tap adapter (AIR-PWR-ST-LT-R3P=) for light pole installations in the US and Canada.
Warning A readily accessible two-poled disconnect device must be incorporated in the fixed wiring.
Caution Prior to connecting or disconnecting a power cord, you must remove AC power from the power cord using a suitable service disconnect.
Note European Union users need to install a country-specific plug to the blunt cut end of the cable assembly.
When using a user-supplied AC power plug on the AIR-CORD-R3P-40UE= power cord, ensure that the plug is certified for outdoor use and that it has a minimum IP67 rating, such as Interpower 84131251 or Hubbell HBL316P6W (IEC/EN60309) pin-and-sleeve type connectors. The European Union power cord plug pinouts are listed in Figure 1.

Caution All AC power plugs and AC receptacles must be protected from water and other outdoor elements. Use a UL listed waterproofing enclosure suitable for covering the AC receptacle and AC power plug that supplies power to the unit as described in Article 406 of the NEC. If the power cord goes through a metal cover, install a bushing to prevent fraying of the cord.
When using a strain relief bushing, you should follow these recommendations:
•Use properly sized parts (see Table 1 for the power cord diameter)
•Use bushings that are safety certified
•Use parts that are suitable for outdoor installation
Caution If your power cord does not use an AC power plug, you must ensure that the power source is OFF before connecting or disconnecting the power cord wires from the power source.
Warning When installing or replacing the unit, the ground connection must always be made first and disconnected last. Statement 1046
