CAUTION
Access points must be installed by trained service personnel. These installers are responsible for
ensuring that grounding is available and that 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.

CAUTION
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.
Preparatory Steps
To prepare the AP-85 for replacing the mounting hardware:
1. Disconnect existing power and cable connections before you begin to replace the mounting
hardware on the AP-85.
WARNING
Disconnect the AC mains before you handle the AC power cable and before you connect or
disconnect the AC power cable at the AP-85.
2. Loosen the four mounting bolts on the back of the AP (see Figure 1).

Wall Mounting the AP-85
To wall mount an AP-85:
1. Secure the mounting plate to a flat wall using the appropriate screws and anchors for your mounting
application (see Figure 2).
NOTE
Wall mount hardware is not included with the mounting plate and must be purchased separately for
your mounting application. The mounting plate accepts the following screw and bolt sizes: M4, M5,
SAE #8, and SAE #10.

2. Seat the AP-85 into the keyholes on the mounting plate and tighten down the four M8 mounting bolts
to secure the AP-85 in place (see Figure 3). At each mounting bolt, the mounting plate should rest
between the captive flat washer and the rear of the AP-85.
NOTE
Figure 3 shows the AP-85 installed with the antenna jacks at the top of the unit. To install the AP-85
with the antenna jacks at the side, rotate the unit 90 degrees before seating the unit on the mounting
plate.

Pole Mounting the AP-85 (1.5-inch to 3.5-inch Diameter Pole)
To attach an AP-85 to a pole with a diameter of 1.5 inches to 3.5 inches:
1. Attach the pole mount clamp to the mounting plate (see Figure 4):
a. Select the appropriate long T-bolt for the pole you are using.
Use the longer T-bolt for poles from 1.5 to 3.5 inches in diameter.
To reduce the excess bolt extension from APs mounted on poles with a diameter of 2.5 inches or
less, use the shorter T-bolt.
b. Thread the T-bolt through the opening in the pole mount clamp.
c. Attach the provided retaining clip to the T-bolt.
d. Screw the provided nut onto the end of the T-bolt.
2. Secure the mounting plate to the pole mount clamp using the four provided Phillips screws
(see Figure 4).

3. Attach the pole mounting bracket assembly to 1.5-inch to 3.5-inch diameter pole and secure the
bracket in place (see Figure 5).
a. Wrap the pole mount clamp around the pole.
b. Slip the end of the T-bolt with nut through the opening in the pole mount clamp.
c. Maneuver the T-bolt to the top slot in the pole mount clamp and tighten down the nut. Verify that
the nut is tightly secured and that the clamp cannot move. It must be secure to support the
weight of the AP-85.

4. Seat the AP-85 into the four keyholes on the mounting plate and tighten down the four M8 mounting
bolts to secure the AP-85 in place (see Figure 6). At each mounting bolt, the mounting plate should
rest between the captive flat washer and the rear of the AP-85.
NOTE
The pole mount clamp can be secured to a horizontal or vertical pole. The position of the keyholes
on the mounting plate allows you to mount the AP-85 on either pole type with the antenna jacks at
the top or the side. To mount the AP-85 with the antenna jacks at the side, rotate the unit 90
degrees before seating the unit on the mounting plate. Refer to Figure 6 and Figure 7 for details.

Pole Mounting the AP-85 (Pole Diameter Greater than
3.5 inches)
To attach an AP-85 to a pole with a diameter greater than 3.5 inches:
1. Attach the mounting plate to the pole using outdoor rated straps (see Figure 8). Outdoor rated straps
are not included with the unit and must be purchased separately.
2. Seat the AP-85 into the four keyholes on the mounting plate and tighten down the four M8 mounting
bolts to secure the AP-85 in place (see Figure 8). The mounting plate should rest between the captive
flat washer on each mounting bolt and the rear of the AP-85.
NOTE
The mounting plate can be secured to a horizontal or vertical pole. The position of the keyholes on
the mounting plate allows you to mount the AP-85 on either pole type with the antenna jacks at the
top or the side. To mount the AP-85 with the antenna jacks at the side, rotate the unit 90 degrees
before seating the unit on the mounting plate.
