    In addition to the items supplied with the AP, protection equipment will be required according to your electrical code. For example: Antenna surge suppressor: HP Antenna Lightning Arrester, J8996A. Ethernet surge suppressor: Weatherproof PoE compatible 10/100 base-T CAT5 Lightning Protector.

  • Page 6: Identifying Ap Components

    The AP has a single 10/100 Mbps Ethernet port with weatherproof RJ-45 connector. Power over Ethernet (PoE) 802.3af is used to power the AP. The MSM310-R/MSM320-R is a ruggedized version of the MSM310/MSM320 and shares the same feature set. However, due to its weatherproof enclosure, Ethernet Port 2, the status lights, and the reset button are not available.

    Make sure that proper lightning surge protection and grounding precautions are taken according to local electrical code. Failure to do so may result in personal injury, fire, equipment damage, or a voided warranty. The HP hardware warranty provides no protection against damage caused by static discharge or a lightning strike.

  • Page 8: Safety

    Safety Take note of the following safety information during installation. If your network covers an area served by more than one power distribution system, be sure all safety grounds are securely interconnected. Network cables may occasionally be subject to hazardous transient voltages (caused by lightning or disturbances in the electrical power grid).

    3: Clamp ring 6: Body If your Ethernet cable already has an RJ-45 connector on the end that will connect to the HP equipment, remove the RJ-45 connector by cutting the cable at least 1.2 cm (.5 inch) before the RJ-45 connector. Be sure to make a clean cut with a pair of sharp angle cutters. The complete cut (through both the cable sheath and all wires) must occur in a single cutting motion.

    Position the gas tube covers so that they can be removed for future tube replacement. Attach the two supplied antennas. NOTE: If installing an optional HP antenna, first attach the lightning arrester to the AP, attach the antenna adapter to the arrester, then attach the antenna connector to the adapter. See also the antenna documentation.
