Chapter 3: Mounting the Enclosure
3. Mounting the Enclosure
You can mount the SmartPath AP (LWN602HA) within the outdoor enclosure on a variety of structures and adjust the enclosure
to a vertical orientation for optimum radio transmission. For example, you can mount the SmartPath AP enclosure to a
nonpenetrating roof stand or to a Winegard bracket, often used for mounting satellite dishes. The pole bracket is adjustable
to fit a pipe with a 1" to 3.5" (2.5 cm to 8.9 cm) diameter.
After checking that you have all the materials and tools necessary, removing the twist ties and plastic caps used to protect wires
and screws during shipping, and familiarizing yourself with the safety and site hazard warnings, you are ready to being mounting
the unit. You have a choice between mounting the SmartPath AP (LWN602HA) to a pole or to a flat surface. Both options are
described below. The major devices and accessories required for pole mounting the SmartPath AP (LWN602HA) outdoors are
shown in Figure 1.
NOTE: When mounting the Ethernet protection device inside a building, place it as close as possible to the point where the
shielded Ethernet cable enters the building and make sure the device is grounded.
Page 3
Chapter 3: Mounting the Enclosure
The SmartPath AP is shown pole
mounted in the outdoor enclosure. A
shielded Ethernet cable provides it
with a network connection and power
through PoE. The pole is grounded,
and the SmartPath AP is electrically
connected to the grounded pole.
The shielded Ethernet cable passes
to the Ethernet protection device just
inside the building beyond the
Ethernet cable entry point. A second
Ethernet cable connects to the
network. The Ethernet protection
device is powered by a 30-watt power
supply connected to a power source.
These devices are also grounded.

Chapter 3: Mounting the Enclosure
3.1 Pole Mount
To provide unobstructed RF coverage, mount the SmartPath AP (LWN602HA) in a relatively open area. At a minimum, mount it
on a pole or mast so that the antennas have at least a three-foot clearance from any nearby obstructions.
NOTE: To help protect the SmartPath AP from lightning strikes, do not place it at the highest point of a building or structure.
You can mount the enclosure on a vertically, horizontally, or diagonally oriented pole that has a diameter from 1" to 31⁄2" (2.5 cm
to 8.9 cm). The mounting plate is adjustable, allowing you to orient it vertically regardless of how the pole bracket must be
attached to the pole.
1. To mount the SmartPath AP (LWN602HA) enclosure on a pole or mast, first use the two clamps to attach the pole bracket to
the pole, as shown in Figure 2. To tighten the clamps, use a 1/4" (2 cm) slotted screwdriver or a 3/8" (10 mm) drive socket (or
nut driver).
NOTE: You can mount the pole bracket with either end at the top or bottom.

1.4 Swivel the screw inward until its grooves engage the slots in
the band. First, tighten the screw by hand until the clamp has a
firm grip on the pole. Then tighten with a screwdriver or drive
socket. When done, tuck the bands inside the pole bracket.
Figure 2. Mounting the pole bracket.
When attaching the pole bracket to a horizontal pole, such as the arm of a street light, make sure that the face of the pole
bracket is perpendicular to the Earth so that the SmartPath AP can provide optimal RF coverage. See Figure 3.

4. You can ground the SmartPath AP (LWN602HA) enclosure in one of two ways, depending on whether the pole to which you
mount it is already grounded. For both approaches, you must connect the grounding wire from the mounting plate to the
ground lug at the bottom of the enclosure and tighten the ground lug nut as shown in Figure 6.
4.1 Thread the end of the grounding wire
through the hole in the grounding lug
on the underside of the enclosure
and make sure the exposed wire
contacts the walls of the lug.
4.2 With a 1⁄2" (13-mm) nut driver,
tighten the nut until the grounding
wire is secured.
Figure 6. Connecting the grounding stud on the mounting plate to the grounding lug on the enclosure.
If the pole is grounded, then the pole bracket, which is designed to pierce paint and oxidation, provides the grounding by forming
an electrical connection from the grounded pole through the pole bracket to the mounting plate, then through the grounding
wire to the lug on the enclosure, and then through the internal mounting plate to the enclosed SmartPath AP (LWN602HA) itself.
If the pole is not grounded, then you must connect a 10 AWG copper wire from the grounding stud to a grounding rod that is
bonded to the earth.

Chapter 3: Mounting the Enclosure
3.2 Flat Surface Mount
When mounting the enclosure to a flat surface, the only other accessory that you need is the mounting plate. To ground the
SmartPath AP (LWN602HA), you must run a grounding wire from the lug nut on the underside of the enclosure to a grounded
object in the building.
1. Attach the mounting plate to a flat surface that can support its weight—approximately 15 pounds (6.8 kg)—and, optionally,
remove the wire from the grounding stud on the mounting plate (it will not be used). Then attach the enclosure to the
mounting plate (see Figure 7).

Chapter 4: Connecting the Ethernet Cable and Power Line
4. Connecting the Ethernet Cable and Power Line
The SmartPath AP (LWN602HA) enclosure ships with an Ethernet protection device installed in the enclosure. It protects the
SmartPath AP from any electrical surges on the Ethernet line that might occur. The device also directs some of the electricity it
receives through PoE to power the fan inside the enclosure.
NOTE: If you want to run a second Ethernet line to the SmartPath AP ETH1 port, you can purchase two more Ethernet protection
devices (one to be installed indoors, and one to be installed outdoors) from Black Box, mount the outdoor device it to the
rear of the enclosure in the lower left corner and mount the indoor device indoors.
To connect an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet protection device inside the enclosure and ensure a weatherproof seal, do the
following:
1. Remove the plastic nut from the right cable grip on the underside of the enclosure.
2. Thread shielded Ethernet cable through the nut, pass it through the opening in the cable grip, and then connect it to the left
Ethernet port in the Ethernet protector in the lower right interior corner of the enclosure.
3. Leaving some slack in the cable inside the enclosure, reattach the nut, and then use an adjustable open-end wrench to tighten
it securely around the cable (see Figure 8).

The dual-band omnidirectional antennas are available from Black Box in a set of four to fit the four N-type antenna connectors on
the top of the enclosure. The two connectors near the rear are for the 2.4-GHz radio, and the two near the front are for the
5-GHz radio. You can attach any of the antennas in the set to any of the N connectors on the enclosure; they are all interchangeable.
1. Remove the plastic caps from the antenna connectors on the enclosure.
NOTE: If you do not use all four antennas, cover the unused connectors with weatherproof N-Type caps (included) to keep them
protected.
2. Screw the antennas onto the connectors by hand, turning them clockwise until tight (see Figure 12).

The final step is to install an Ethernet protection device, ground it, and connect the Ethernet cables and power line.
1. Attach the Ethernet protection device to the building at the entry point of the shielded Ethernet cable from the SmartPath AP
(LWN602HA) inside the building.
2. Make the following connections, as shown in Figure 13:
• Ground the device by running a wire from the grounding stud to a grounded object, such as a water pipe, gas pipe, or grounding rod.
• Connect the device to the power supply and connect that to a power source.
• Connect the shielded Ethernet cable from the SmartPath AP (LWN602HA) to the port labeled Data & Power, and connect
another Ethernet cable from the port labeled Data to the network.
NOTE: When the SmartPath AP (LWN602HA) connects to the network through the Ethernet protection device, it can support only
10/100-Mbps speeds although it might autonegotiate 1-Gbps speed. Therefore, manually set the speed for eth0 on the
SmartPath AP and the connecting port on the adjacent switch to 100 Mbps and set the transmission type as full duplex.
For the SmartPath AP, make a console connection and enter these commands:
interface eth0 speed 100 … interface eth0 duplex full
