Installing Antennas
Antenna N-Type Connector Locations
The access point antenna N-type connectors are located on the top and the bottom of model
AIR-CAP1532E-x-K9. The N-type connectors support variety of the Cisco Aironet antennas. For
detailed information on these antennas, refer to
the antenna port locations viewed from the RF cover side.

Installing a Lightning Arrestor
Overvoltage transients can be created through lightning static discharges, switch processes, direct
contact with power lines, or through earth currents. The Cisco Aironet AIR-ACC245LA-N Lightning
Arrestor limits the amplitude and duration of disturbing interference voltages and improves the over
voltage resistance of in-line equipment, systems, and components. A lightning arrestor installed
according to these mounting instructions balances the voltage potential, thus preventing inductive
interference to parallel signal lines within the protected system.

Installation Considerations

Cisco recommends that you bulkhead mount the lightning arrestor so it can be installed as a wall-feed
through on the wall of the protected space.
The importance of obtaining a good ground and bonding connection cannot be overstressed. Consider
these points when grounding the lightning arrestor:

  • Page 2 This lightning arrestor is designed to be installed between the antenna cable that is attached to an outdoor antenna and the Cisco Aironet wireless device. You can install the lightning arrestor either indoors or outdoors. It can be connected directly to a wireless device having an external N connector. It can also be mounted inline or as a feed-through.
