Installing the AX411 Access Point in an Overhead Enclosure

This procedure describes how to install the AX411 Access Point in a typical overhead enclosure, in this case the Oberon Wireless model 1052-00 enclosure with 34–ZDUAL antennas. For installation in other overhead enclosures, see the specific instructions provided with the enclosure.

To install the access point in an overhead enclosure, perform the following procedures:

  1. Installing the AX411 Access Point Mounting Bracket in an Overhead Enclosure
  2. Attaching the AX411 Access Point to a Mounting Bracket in an Overhead Enclosure
  3. Connecting External Antennas to the AX411 Access Point
  4. Installing the Overhead Enclosure Containing the AX411 Access Point

Installing the AX411 Access Point Mounting Bracket in an Overhead Enclosure

Use the hardware provided with the overhead enclosure to install the mounting bracket inside the enclosure. Attach the bracket inside the enclosure with at least two screws of size 8-32 or M4 or larger. For specific procedures, see the instructions provided with the enclosure.

Attaching the AX411 Access Point to a Mounting Bracket in an Overhead Enclosure

To attach the AX411 Access Point to a mounting bracket installed inside an overhead enclosure:

  1. Locate the two pins protruding from the underside of the access point.
  2. Orient the access point so that the captive screw on the rear panel matches the tab on the mounting bracket.
  3. Press the access point against the mounting bracket so that the two pins go through the enlarged portions of the keyhole slots on the raised ears at each edge of the mounting bracket.
  4. Slide the access point so that the pins engage the narrower portions of the keyhole slots in the mounting bracket.
  5. Secure the access point to the mounting bracket by tightening the captive screw on the rear panel of the access point.

Connecting External Antennas to the AX411 Access Point

For overhead enclosures with external antennas, use this procedure to connect the external antennas:

  1. If necessary, install the antennas in the enclosure. Refer to the instructions provided with the antennas and the enclosure.
  2. Connect one antenna cable to each antenna connector on the back of the AX411 Access Point and tighten it finger tight. The order and arrangement of the antenna connections do not matter.
  3. Arrange the antenna cables within the enclosure so that they do not interfere with the opening or closing of the enclosure door. If necessary, use cable ties to bundle the antenna cables neatly.
