Just a quick question about the outdoor PoE injector for the AP170.

When mounting an AP170 outdoors, is the outdoor PoE injector only necessary when the PoE injector is also mounted outdoors. As we plan to install a standard PoE injector in the switch-room, and run outdoor rated ethernet cable to the AP170. Only a short 15 meter run.

Presume the outdoor injector is only required when the power supply is also outdoors.

You presumed correctly. Make sure you use a 30W injector indoors and code requires a lightning arrestor on the ethernet cable at the ingress to the building. The details of how and where to mount one is our documentation. We offer a Gigabit capable one as an accessory.

Hope this Helps.

In the Aerohive HW Reference guide is a good explanation of this. Included here is a picture from that guide for your reference.

It also shows you the lightning arrestor SKU and recommended connections.
