  • Page 5: Introduction

    The AP-6511 Access Point ships with a single dual-band radio supporting the 802.11a/b/g/n radio bands. The AP-6511 receives all power and transfers data through the same CAT-5 or better Ethernet cable. There is no additional power supply required. An 802.3af PoE Ethernet switch or mid span power injector is required.

    • Optional three port Ethernet expansion module (sold separately) • 2 LED indicators The pass through (keystone) cable provides an option to add a second Ethernet port before installing the AP-6511. The AP-6511 has one RJ-45 connector supporting an 10/100 Ethernet port and requires 802.3af compliant power from an external source.

    AP-6511 Access Point Hardware Installation 2.1 Installation Instructions An AP-6511 Access Point mounts either on a wall, under a table or over a Telco Box. The AP-6511 is not plenum rated. The provided metal mounting plate is fastened to an existing standard NOTE Telco in-wall box.

  • Page 9: Precautions

    A Motorola Solutions Power Injector (AP-PSBIAS-2P2-AFR) is recommended as the 802.3af compatible power supply for the AP-6511. The Power Injector is capable of providing 12.95 Watts up to 100 meters. The Power Injector is separately ordered and not shipped with the AP-6511. A separate Power Injector is required for each Access Point comprising the network.
