AP-85 Direct-Mount Antenna Bracket

Installation Guide

This installation guide provides instructions for installing the direct-mount antenna bracket on the
AP-85 wireless access point (AP). This guide does not include pre-installation and post-installation
requirements, such as minimum software requirements, AP provisioning, connecting power cables, and
other network requirements for an AP-85 installation. For information about these topics, refer to the
AP-85 Outdoor Access Point Series Installation Guide that was shipped with your AP-85 unit.
The direct-mount antenna bracket provides mounting for the antennas listed in Table 1.

Unpacking the Antenna Bracket

Inform your supplier if the bracket has been damaged in transit.

Installing the Antenna Bracket

Access points must be installed by trained service personnel. Trained service personnel are
responsible for ensuring that grounding is available and that the grounding meets applicable local
and national electrical codes.

Do not work on an AP and do not connect or disconnect cables during periods of lightning activity.

Access points are radio transmission devices and therefore are subject to governmental regulation.

Network administrators responsible for the configuration and operation of access points must
comply with local broadcast regulations. Specifically, access points must use channel assignments
appropriate to the location in which the access point will be used.

RF Radiation Exposure Statement: This equipment complies with FCC RF radiation exposure limits.
This equipment should be installed and operated with a minimum distance of 13.8 inches (35 cm)

between the radiator and your body for 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz operations. This transmitter must not be
co-located or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter. When operated in the
5.15 to 5.25 GHz frequency range, this device is restricted to indoor use to reduce the potential for
harmful interference with co-channel Mobile Satellite Systems.

To install the antenna bracket:

1. Identify the appropriate mounting holes on the bracket and attach the antennas to the bracket
following manufacturers recommendations.
The AP-ANT-85, AP-ANT-2418, and AP-ANT-5016 antennas attach to the bracket in a diagonal
orientation (see Figure 1).

3. Route the antenna cables to the back of the bracket through appropriate access openings.
4. Set the bracket against the AP-85, making sure that the antenna cables are between the bracket and
the AP. Insert the removed screws to secure the bracket to the AP (see Figure 3).
