Installation Requirements

Power Options

Either the VDC input or PoE input is used at any one time. If both input types are connected, only the input type with the highest voltage will be used; the other can be used as a backup. Any of the input options can power any of the output options.

Power Input Options

Power Output Options

The number of devices that can be powered depends on the power consumption of the specific devices and the power input option. For example, if you provide 24VDC, 1.25A, then you have 30W of power. If the EdgePoint uses 7W (Max. Power Consumption), then you have 23W available for passive PoE output. Please check product specifications for the power consumption values to use in your calculations.

Hardware Overview

Ground Bonding Point

Used to secure a ground wire (not included).

DC Input

Terminal block connector accepts 24VDC, 3A input to power the EdgePoint and passive PoE output.

PoE In/eth0 Port (24V PoE Out)

The RJ45 port supports 10/100/1000 Ethernet connections and has PoE input or output functionality:

  • PoE Input Accepts 24V, 1.4A PoE input to power the EdgePoint and PoE output.
  • PoE Output You can configure the port for 24V 2-pair PoE output.

Do NOT configure port eth0 in PoE output mode if you are using it as a PoE input power source.

eth1 - eth4 Ports (24V PoE Out)

RJ45 ports support 10/100/1000 Ethernet connections and passive 24V, 2-pair PoE output for airMAX® devices.

eth5/SFP Port

SFP port is hot-swappable and supports Gigabit fiber SFP modules.

Note: For installations with extreme temperatures, please use industrial-grade fiber SFP modules.

Hardware Installation

Pole Mounting

  1. Proceed to "Grounding the EdgePoint".

Removing the Port Cover

Note: Depending on which cables will be connected, remove the corresponding cable feed plugs from the port cover.

Grounding the EdgePoint

Connecting Ethernet

Note: PoE is disabled by default.

Optional

Note: Cable ties are not included.

Connecting SFP

For information about compatible fiber SFP modules, visit: ubnt.link/SFP_DAC_Compatibility

Connecting Power

Proceed to the appropriate section: Connecting to the 24VDC Input or "Connecting Power Using PoE".

Connecting to the 24VDC Input

  1. Optional

Note: The set screw is not included.

Connecting Power Using PoE

Note: Do NOT configure port eth0 in PoE output mode if you are using it as a PoE input power source.

  1. Optional

  2. Optional

Note: The set screw is not included.

Accessing the EdgeOS Configuration Interface

The EdgeOS® configuration interface can be accessed via DHCP or static IP address assignment. By default, eth1 is set up as a DHCP client, while eth0 is assigned a static IP address of 192.168.1.1. To configure the EdgePoint, proceed to the appropriate section: DHCP or "Static IP Address".

DHCP

Use one of the following methods:

The EdgeOS Configuration Interface will appear, allowing you to customize your settings as needed. For more information, refer to the EdgeOS User Guide, which is available at ui.com/download/edgemax

For more information on PoE configuration, refer to "Configuring PoE Settings".

Static IP Address

  1. Connect an Ethernet cable from the Ethernet port on your computer to the port labeled eth0 on the EdgePoint. (If you are using PoE, connect your computer to the EdgePoint via a PoE switch, or to the adapter’s LAN port.)

  2. Configure the Ethernet adapter on your host system with a static IP address on the 192.168.1.x subnet.
  3. Launch your web browser. Type https://192.168.1.1 in the address field, and press enter (PC) or return (Mac).
  4. Enter ubnt in the Username and Password fields. Read the Ubiquiti License Agreement, and check the box next to I agree to the terms of this License Agreement to accept it. Click Login.

The EdgeOS Configuration Interface will appear, allowing you to customize your settings as needed. For more information, refer to the EdgeOS User Guide, which is available at ui.com/download/edgemax

For more information on PoE configuration, refer to "Configuring PoE Settings".

UNMS Management

You can manage your device using UNMS, which lets you configure, monitor, upgrade, and back up your devices using a single application. Get started at www.unms.com

Configuring PoE Settings

WARNING: Before activating 24V passive PoE, ensure that the connected device supports PoE and the supplied voltage.

  1. Go to Actions > PoE for the interface you want to configure.

  2. Select Off or 24V from the PoE drop-down menu.

    Note: If the PoE screen states that PoE is not supported, then there is insufficient power. You will need to increase the power input to the EdgePoint.

  3. Click Save.

For more information, refer to the EdgeOS User Guide, which is available at ui.com/download/edgemax
