Q1300 Installation Instructions
These installation instructions are intended for the person installing the Q1300. This document contains everything the installer
needs to know to perform the installation, power up, and confirm that the unit is functioning correctly. For a comprehensive
description of all operations of this product, refer to the Q1300 User’s Guide.
Installation requires knowledge of the site's power source and network connections. You will complete the following steps:
STEP 1. Complete the Configuration Table on this page.
STEP 2. Prepare the installation site.
STEP 3. Install in rack or wall-mount, depending on your requirements.
STEP 4. Apply power and attach cables to the unit as needed.
STEP 5. Log in and make changes to the configuration.
Safety precautions
Use caution when installing or modifying telecommunications equipment. Dangerous voltages may be present. It is unsafe
to install wiring during a lightning storm.
Always disconnect all telephone lines at the network interface and power connections before servicing or disassembling
this equipment. Always connect to a grounded power source first and disconnect from it last, so that the unit is safely
grounded throughout the installation.
All wiring external to the product should follow the provisions of the current edition of the National Electrical Code and any
local wiring rules that apply.
Complete the Configuration Table
During this step you will gather the configuration information you need to complete this

Management IP Address
Management IP Netmask
Default Gateway

Prepare the Installation Site
During this step you will make sure the installation site is adequate for the Q1300
unit, with proper clearances, cable distances, environmental specifications, electrostatic
protection, and power and grounding requirements.
Environmental specifications
To ensure that the unit functions according to specifications, each site should meet these minimum requirements:
Operating: -20° to 50°C (-4° to 122°F)
5% to 95% RH (non-condensing)
Clearances and cable distances
Allow at least 4" at the back of the unit for cabling.
The unit requires at least 1/8” clearance above and 1” on each side for proper ventilation.
Electrostatic protection
It is essential to protect the unit from electrostatic damage. It is most vulnerable to electrostatic damage when first removed from
the shipping box.
Power and grounding requirements
Correct grounding is essential to protect the unit from lightning and electrostatic damage. It is also required to meet safety and
EMC standards. The power cable should be the first cable connected so that the unit will be grounded through the power source
throughout the rest of the installation.
The universal AC power adapter supplies 100 to 240 VAC input, 50-60 Hz. Power consumption is less than 20W. 3
Install in Rack or Wall-Mount
During this step you will inspect the unit and install it into a rack or mount the unit on a wall. No matter how you
install the unit, make sure there is at least 1/8" clearance above and 1" on each side for adequate ventilation.
The power cable is the power disconnect device. If it is permanently attached by screws to the equipment,
a disconnect device must be incorporated in the installation wiring.
Inspect the unit
If the unit appears to have been damaged in shipping, return
it to your place of purchase for a replacement. Upon opening,
check to make sure you received the following items with each
m RJ45 Socket to DE9 Socket adapter
m RJ45 cable for remote management or Ethernet IP
m Wall mounting screws & inserts
m AC-DC power adapter and cable
m Documentation kit (includes CD, Service card, and this
Optional accessories
Refer to the product catalog, available at http://www.kentrox.
Standard rack installation
Place the unit in a standard 19" rack. Use brackets to secure the
unit (available in the optional mounting kit, order #77912).
#8 screw with
drywall anchor
Wall-mount installation
If you are installing the unit on a wall, place the enclosed
wall mount inserts and screws 7" apart.
Non-standard rack installation
If you are installing the unit in a non-standard rack, use the
contents of the optional rack mounting kit as needed. You may
need to supply your own bracket extensions if you install the
unit in a rack other than 19”.
It is essential that the Q1300 be connected to frame ground for lightning
protection. For personal safety you should limit any contact with an ungrounded unit.
Apply Power and Attach Cables
During this step you will power up the unit and install the Ethernet cables required for your
configuration. There are four Ethernet LAN ports, one Ethernet WAN port, and an RS-232 port
[used to access the Command Line Interface (CLI)].
10/100 LAN
12 VDC
1. BEFORE attaching any other
cables, connect the power
supply to AC power, then
attach the power cable to the
2. Attach your required WAN interface (existing router, Internet
gateway, cable modem, DSL, etc.)
to Ethernet Port 5. (May require
a cross-over cable.)
3. Attach
Ethernet cables
from your
networked PCs
to the LAN ports.
4. Attach a cable to
the RS-232 port if
you need to access
the CLI.
During this step you will use either the GUI or the CLI to configure the unit. This document assumes
you are using the GUI. For CLI instructions, including information about CLI scripting, refer to the User’s
Guide and the CLI Reference Guide.
The screen below is the Q1300 Setup Configuration Screen, which displays the first time you access the unit
and any time you reset the system to factory defaults.
A. Start your Internet browser and browse to (To perform this step, your workstation must have an address in the network.) The login screen displays.
B. Enter "admin" for the User Name and "admin" for the password. The Q1300 Setup Configuration screen displays.
C. Enter your system name, which will display at the top of each Q1300 GUI page. The system name is optional.
D. Enter the Management IP Address and Management IP Subnet Mask.
E. Enter the IP Address for the gateway used to access the WAN. The default is
F. Enter the IP Address for your preferred DNS Server. You must enter a valid server if you want to update the clock automatically
(step H). The alternate DNS Server is not a required entry, and should not match the preferred server.
G. Enter the administrative password, then confirm the password by entering it a second time. You can reset the password at this
step. Resetting the password is optional, but highly recommended for security purposes.
H. If you entered a DNS Server above, you can select the checkbox to update your system clock automatically.
I. Select your Time Zone. This step is optional, but highly recommended for time synchronization.
J. Enter the maximum WAN bandwidth of your system, in kilobits per second. The setting for a 10 megabit system is 10000 Kbps.
K. Save your work. Click the "Save Configuration Changes and Continue" button.
Your system should be up and running at this point. You can move to the Monitor > System page to review traffic graphs,
locate links to the WAN and LAN monitoring pages, and access the System and Alarm logs to make sure your system is operating
normally. You are encouraged to explore the system interface and begin learning the different monitoring and configuration
options. If you need additional assistance, be sure to click the link for Help found in the upper right corner of each page.
Go to the Configure > System > Basic page to make configuration changes to the management IP Address and Default Gateway.
To add users and set up SNTP information, go to the Configure > System > Advanced page.
Advanced configurations
For most users, the installation is complete at this point. If you need assistance with configuring advanced features, such as static
routes, application lists or QoS Policies, refer to the online help or consult the User’s Guide on the Q1300 Documentation CD-ROM.
