System Requirements System Requirements This antenna is designed for use with Cisco Aironet access points and bridges but can be used with any 5-GHz Cisco Aironet radio device that uses an RP-TNC connector. Safety Precautions Installation of this antenna near power lines is dangerous. For your safety, follow the installation Warning directions.
Each person should be assigned to a specific task, and should know what to do and when to do it. One person should be in charge of the operation to issue instructions and watch for signs of trouble.
Generally, the higher an antenna is above the ground, the better it performs. Good practice is to install your antenna about 5 to 10 ft (1.5 to 3 m) above the roof line and away from all power lines and obstructions.
Use the antenna as a template to mark the locations of the four mounting holes with a pencil. Step 2 Use a drill and 3/16-in. (4.8 mm) drill bit to drill four holes at the locations you marked in Step 2. Step 3 Start a plastic anchor into each hole.
Place one ¼-20 u-bolt around the mast, and place one support bracket on the u-bolt. Place the mounting plate on the u-bolt. Step 2 Place two ¼-inch flat washers and ¼-20 nuts on the ends of the u-bolt. Tighten the nuts finger tight. Step 3 Repeat steps 1 through 3 for the other u-bolt.
Install the screws through the antenna mounting plate and install the #8 nuts. Step 8 Tighten the #8 screws and nuts with a #2 Phillips screwdriver and an 11/32-in. (9-mm) wrench. Step 9 Do not overtighten the nuts. You could damage the antenna.
The antenna can also be mounted on an optional articulated mounting device as shown in Figure 2. The articulated mount is used with the mast mount to provide a way to adjust the antenna elevation and azimuth through a limited range. Figure 2...
If you install additional lengths of antenna cable, be sure to install a suitable strain relief. The antenna Caution may be damaged if you do not eliminate the extra weight of the cable. The antenna is not designed to support the weight of a cable longer than the installed 3-ft (91.4 cm) cable.
Grounding the Antenna Follow these steps to ground the antenna in accordance with national electrical code instructions. Use No. 10 AWG copper or No. 8 or larger copper-clad steel or bronze wire as ground wires for both Step 1 mast and lead-in. Securely clamp the wire to the bottom of the mast.
