All APX models are supplied without a PoE injector. Check the technical specifications to determine if you need 802.3af (PoE) or 802.3at (PoE+). PoE injectors are available for separate purchase.
Optional mounting kits are available for the indoor APX 320, APX 530, and APX 740 for flat-ceiling, plenum, or suspend mount.
Antenna Options for APX 320X
In addition to the omni-directional antennas supplied with the unit, we also offer external antenna options for the outdoor APX 320X to meet the requirements of some additional usage scenarios. These are available for separate purchase.
120° sector antenna
30° directional antenna
As the name suggests, the standard omni-directional antennas are designed to provide relatively even coverage around the unit in all directions. These are suitable for usage scenarios where the connecting clients will be distributed around the access point, but particularly in some outdoor areas, there may be obstructions which can interfere with the signal.
With directional/sector antennas you achieve targeted, better coverage at an extended range, and reduce signal wastage.
Which PoE injector do I need?
802.3af = PoE (e.g., for APX 120 and APX 320)
The IEEE 802.3af (PoE) standard supports the delivery of Power over Ethernet up to 15.4W per port that may be used to deliver power to a variety of devices. However, only 12.95W is assured to be available at the powered device as some power is dissipated in the cable as overhead.
802.3at = PoE+ (e.g., for APX 530, 740 and 320X)
The IEEE 802.3at (PoE+) standard supports up to 30W of power on the ports (25.5W after dissipation), allowing devices that require more than 15.4W to power on when connected to the PoE+ ports.
*Note: A PoE+ (802.3at) injector will also support PoE (802.3af), so if you’re not sure, take the PoE+ injector.
