Important information to read before installing
Prior to installing or using this device, consult with a professional installer
trained in RF installation and knowledgeable in local regulations including
building and wiring codes, safety, channel, power, indoor/outdoor
restrictions, and license requirements for the intended country. It is the
responsibility of the end user to ensure that installation and use comply
with local safety and radio regulations.
Surge protection and grounding: If you plan on connecting an outdoor antenna to the unit
make sure that proper lightning surge protection and grounding precautions are taken
according to local electrical code. Failure to do so may result in personal injury, fire,
equipment damage, or a voided warranty. The HP hardware warranty provides no protection
against damage caused by static discharge or a lightning strike.
Cabling: You must use the appropriate cables, and where applicable, surge protection, for
your given region. For compliance with EN55022 Class-B emissions requirements use
shielded Ethernet cables.
Plenum installation: The MSM313 can be installed in a plenum (UL2043 rating). It should
be installed in a similar orientation as in a ceiling installation. However, it is left to a qualified
installer to determine how to install/secure the MSM313 in a plenum in an appropriate and
safe manner. Plenum-rated cables and attachment hardware must be used.
• If your network covers an area served by more than one power distribution system, be
sure all safety grounds are securely interconnected.
• Network cables may occasionally be subject to hazardous transient voltages (caused by
lightning or disturbances in the electrical power grid).
• Handle exposed metal components of the network with caution.
• The MSM313 is powered-on when the LAN port is plugged into a PoE power source or
when an external power supply is connected.
• The MSM313 and all interconnected equipment must be installed indoors within the
same building (except for outdoor models / antennas), including all PoE-powered
network connections as described by Environment A of the IEEE 802.3af standard.
When mounting the MSM313 on a wall or ceiling, ensure that the surface to which you
attach the MSM313 and the fasteners you use can support at least .9 kg (2 pounds). Allow
extra weight for cables. Fasteners must be a minimum #6 x 3/4-inch wood screws.
If the MSM313 is installed inside a plenum, plenum-rated cables and attachment hardware
must be used. Only the MSM313 and appropriate cabling can be located in the plenum. The
power injector or power supply cannot be installed in a plenum.
Before installing, it is recommended that you first verify device operation.
Powering the MSM313
The MSM313 can be powered by:
• A PoE-enabled switch. Various PoE-enabled switches are available from HP.
• HP PoE 1-Port Power Injector (J9407A)
• HP MSM31x Power Supply (J9405A).
