  • Page 5: Introduction

    The AP-6511E Access Point ships with a single dual-band radio supporting the 802.11a/b/g/n radio bands. The AP-6511E receives all power and transfers data through the same CAT-5 or better Ethernet cable. There is no additional power supply required. An 802.3af PoE Ethernet switch or mid span power injector is required.

  • Page 6: Warnings

    • Optional three port Ethernet expansion module (sold separately) • 2 LED indicators The pass through (keystone) cable provides an option to add a second Ethernet port before installing the AP-6511E. The AP-6511E has one RJ-45 connector supporting an 10/100 Ethernet port and requires 802.3af compliant power from an external source.

  • Page 7

    The runtime firmware on the Access Point can be updated via the Ethernet interface. The front of the AP-6511E has an access cover that can be removed to expose an additional connector. A three port RJ-45 Ethernet expansion module connects to the hidden header and snaps onto the AP-6511E in place of the access cover.

  • Page 8: Hardware Installation

    AP-6511E Access Point Hardware Installation 2.1 Installation Instructions An AP-6511E Access Point mounts either on a wall, under a table or over a Telco Box. The AP-6511E is not plenum rated. The provided metal mounting plate is fastened to an existing standard NOTE Telco in-wall box.

  • Page 9: Precautions

    A Motorola Solutions Power Injector (AP-PSBIAS-2P2-AFR) is recommended as the 802.3af compatible power supply for the AP-6511E. The Power Injector is capable of providing 12.95 Watts up to 100 meters. The Power Injector is separately ordered and not shipped with the AP-6511E. A separate Power Injector is required for each Access Point comprising the network.

  • Page 10: Wall Mount Installation

    AP-6511E Access Point • Ensure the cable length from the Ethernet source (host) to the Power Injector and AP-6511E Access Point does not exceed 100 meters (333 ft). To avoid problematic performance and restarts, disable POE from a CAUTION wired controller port connected to an Access Point if mid-span power sourcing equipment (PSE) is used between the two, regardless of the manufacturer.

    Bend the cable into a “U” shape so the mini pin connector and the RJ-45 keystone cable are in close proximity to one another. b. Install the mini pin connector into the pin socket on the back of the AP-6511E. The connector is keyed and can only be installed one way. Ensure the mini pin connector is connected securely.

    AP-6511E Access Point 4. Snap the AP-6511E on to the mounted wall plate. Use the locking screw to secure the unit. This connection does not require the use of tools or fastening hardware. Once installed, connections are hidden from forward view, with only the physical infrastructure cables (Ethernet and power) extending from the AP-6511E.

    802.11bgn (2.4 GHz) and 802.11an (5.0 GHz) bands. No customer assembly or antenna orientation is required. The AP-6511E radio can transmit on one or two antennas depending on the operating modes. The radio can receive on one or two antennas as well. The data rates supported are different in each case.
