The Cisco Aironet Power Injector Media Converter increases wireless LAN deployment flexibility of Cisco Aironet Access Points and Bridges by providing an alternative powering option to local power, inline power-capable multiport switches, and multiport power patch panels.
The power injector media converter combines 48-VDC power (supplied by the external power supply) with the data signal, sending both to the Cisco Aironet Access Point or Bridge.
The power injector media converter receives data over the fiber-optic cable through its MT-RJ fiber connector. The fiber-optic data signals are converted to Ethernet data signals and sent to the access point through the injector's Category 5 RJ-45 port. A Category 5 Ethernet cable connects the injector to the access point. The injector's power supply connects to a wall outlet or power strip to supply the power. An alternate 48-VDC power source can be used instead of the power supply.
The power injector media converter provides up to 15W over the unused wire pairs of a Category 5 Ethernet cable, supplying enough power for a distance of 328 ft (100 m) on the Cisco Aironet 350, 1100, an 1200 Series Access Points and the Cisco Aironet 350 Series Bridges.
The Cisco Aironet Power Injector Media Converter (AIR-PWRINJ-FIB) provides adequate fire resistance and low smoke-producing characteristics suitable for operation in a building's environmental air space in accordance with Section 300-22(C) of the National Electrical Code (NEC) and Sections 2-128, 12-010(3), and 12-100 of the Canadian Electrical Code,
Part 1, C22.1.
The AC power adapter is not suitable for operation in a building's environmental airspace and should not be installed in these environments. When installing the power injector media converter into a building's environmental air space, the power supply pigtail option, provided with your power injector, must be used.
