    AP-7131 Series Access Point: Installation Guide 1.1 Document Conventions The following graphical alerts are used in this document to indicate notable situations: NOTE Tips, hints, or special requirements that you should take note of. CAUTION Care is required. Disregarding a caution can result in data loss or equipment malfunction.

  • Page 9: Hardware Installation, Package Contents

    2.1 Precautions Before installing an AP-7131 or AP-7131N model access point, verify the following: • Do not install in wet or dusty areas without additional protection. Contact a Motorola representative for more information. • Verify the environment has a continuous temperature range between -20° C to 50° C.

  • Page 10: Access Point Placement

    • Orient the access point antennas vertically for best reception. • Point the access point antennas downward if attaching to the ceiling. To maximize the access point’s radio coverage area, Motorola recommends conducting a site survey to define and document radio interference obstacles before installing the access point.

  • Page 11: Antenna Options

    Hardware Installation 2.3.1 Antenna Options Motorola supports two antenna suites for AP-7131 and AP-7131N models. One antenna suite supporting the 2.4 GHz band and another antenna suite supporting the 5 GHz band. Select an antenna model best suited to the intended operational environment of your access point. The AP-7131N model access point can be purchased in a three radio configuration.

    Ethernet connectivity limited to only the GE1 port. The Motorola access point Power Supply (Part No. 50-14000-247R) is not included with the access point and is orderable separately as an accessory. If the access point is provided both POE power over the GE1/POE connection, as well as the 50-14000-247R power supply concurrently, the access point will source power from the 50-14000-247R supply only.

  • Page 14

    AP-7131 Series Access Point: Installation Guide A separate Power Injector is required for each access point comprising the network. 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. The following guidelines should be adhered to before cabling the Power Injector to an Ethernet source and an access point: •...

  • Page 15: Mounting The Access Point, Wall Mounting

    Hardware Installation 1. Connect the Power Injector to an AC outlet (110VAC to 220VAC). 2. Connect an RJ-45 Ethernet cable between the network data supply (host) and the Power Injector Data In connector. 3. Connect an RJ-45 Ethernet cable between the Power Injector Data & Power Out connector and the access point’s GE1/POE port.
