Power Requirements for AP43

The AP43 requires PoE+ or 802.3at power. Make sure that you connect an AP43 to an 802.3at or PoE+ switch. To provide full wireless functionality, the AP43 requests 25.5 W power. You can use any of the following options to power on an AP43:

  • Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) from an Ethernet switch

    We recommend that you use an Ethernet cable with a maximum length of 100 m to connect the access point (AP) to the switch port.

    If you use an Ethernet cable that is longer than 100 m by placing an Ethernet PoE+ extender in the path, the AP might power up, but the Ethernet link does not transmit data across such a long cable. You might see the status LED blink yellow twice. This LED behavior indicates that the AP is unable to receive data from the switch.

  • PoE injector

  • 12 V DC power supply
