1 300Mbps is the maximum theoretical wireless signal rate when using multiple MIMO antennas (derived from 802.11n draft specifications). Actual data throughput will
vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, and network overhead lower actual data
throughput rate. Environmental conditions will adversely affect wireless signal range.
2 Maximum power setting will vary according to individual country regulations.
3 This device can be mounted on a pole using an optional mounting kit (part number B15900-0033000).
4 Embedded patch antennas will be disabled when optional antennas are connected.
5 IP65 standard means the device is protected from dust and low pressure jets of water from all directions - limited ingress permitted. It is recommended to place this
device under a roof.
