2.3.2 Power Injector System
The Access Point can receive power via an Ethernet cable connected to the GE1/PoE port.
When users purchase a WLAN solution, they often need to place Access Points in obscure locations. In the past, a
dedicated power source was required for each Access Point in addition to the Ethernet infrastructure. This often
required an electrical contractor to install power drops at each Access Point location. The Power Injector merges
power and Ethernet into one cable, reducing the burden of installation and allowing optimal Access Point
placement in respect to the intended coverage area.
The Power Injector (Part No. AP-PSBIAS-2P2-AFR) is an 802.3af PoE injector. The Access Point can only use a Power
Injector when connecting to the Access Point's GE1/PoE port. The Power Injector is separately ordered and not
shipped with the Access Point. A separate Power Injector is required for each Access Point comprising the network.
The Power Injector has no On/Off power switch. The Injector receives power and is ready for device connection and
operation as soon as AC power is applied. Refer to the Installation Guide shipped with the Power Injector for a
description of the device's LEDs.The Power Injector can be installed free standing, on an even horizontal surface or
wall mounted using the Power Injector's wall mounting key holes.
