Installation Requirements

Power Options

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

Both PoE inputs can be used at the same time. If there is a voltage difference, the higher-voltage source will be used first. The voltage from the initial source will drop as the load increases. When the voltage drops to the same level as the lower-voltage source, then the lower-voltage source will also start providing power.

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. Example: If you provide 54VDC, 1.5A, then you have 81W of power. If the EdgePoint uses 40W (Max. Power Consumption), then you have 41W available for passive PoE output. Check product specifications for the power consumption values to use in your calculations.

Hardware Overview

Console Port

RJ45 serial console port for Command Line Interface (CLI) management.

Note: Remove the protective plug from the Console port before use.

DC Input

Terminal block connector uses auto-polarity detection and accepts +42 to +56VDC, 6A input (including the Ubiquiti EdgePower™, model EP-54V-150W) to power the EdgePoint and passive PoE output. -48V is NOT supported.

Ports PoE In / 1 - 2 (54/24V PoE Out)

RJ45 ports support 10/100/1000 Ethernet connections and have PoE input or output functionality:

  • PoE Input Accepts 54V, 1.5A PoE input to power the EdgePoint and PoE output.
  • PoE Output You can configure the ports for 54/24V 4-pair PoE output.

Do NOT configure port PoE In / 1 or 2 in PoE output mode if you are using it as a PoE input power source.

Ports 3 - 4 (54/24V PoE Out)

RJ45 ports support 10/100/1000 Ethernet connections and passive 54/24V, 4-pair PoE output for airFiber® devices.

Ports 5 - 16 (PoE+ or 24V PoE Out)

RJ45 ports support 10/100/1000 Ethernet connections and PoE+ (IEEE 802.3af/802.3at) or passive 24V, 2-pair PoE output for airMAX® or other devices.

SFP+ 1 - 2 Ports

SFP+ ports are hot-swappable and support 1/10 Gbps fiber SFP/SFP+ modules.

Note: For extreme temperatures, please use industrial-grade fiber SFP/SFP+ modules.

System LED

Note: The System LED functionality has been updated with firmware v1.8.0. We recommend that you update the device to the latest firmware.

Pole-Mount Bracket

Used for pole-mounting or in combination with the included Wall-Mount Bracket for wall-mounting.

PicoStation®M2HP Slot

Used for mounting an optional PicoStationM2HP (not included) to the back of the EdgePoint. (You can use the PicoStationM2HP for wireless management of the EdgePoint.)

Ground Bonding Point

Used to secure a ground wire (not included).

Attaching the Cable Sleeve

Note: You have two options for using a 2.0-inch NPT (National Pipe Thread) male conduit (not included):

  • Use the conduit instead of the Cable Sleeve.
  • Use the conduit to extend the Cable Sleeve.

Hardware Installation

Mount the EdgePoint on a pole or to a wall:

Pole-Mounting

  1. Proceed to "Grounding the EdgePoint".

Wall-Mounting

Note: The Wall-Mount Bracket must be anchored directly to a stud or other structurally stable surface.

Grounding the EdgePoint

Connecting Ethernet

  1.  
  2. Note: PoE is disabled by default.

Connecting SFP+/SFP

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

Connecting Power

Proceed to the appropriate section:

WARNING: -48V is NOT supported.

Connecting to the VDC Input

Connecting Power Using PoE

The following instructions show port PoE In / 1; however, you can use port PoE In / 2 instead.

Note: Do NOT configure port PoE In / 1 or 2 in PoE output mode if you are using it as a PoE input power source.

  1. Optional

Accessing the Configuration Interface

By default, the EdgePoint will try to get its IP address automatically using DHCP. If that fails, then it will use the default fallback IP address, 192.168.1.2. Proceed to the appropriate section, DHCP or "Fallback IP Address":

DHCP

Use one of the following methods:

To log in, follow these steps:

  1. Launch your web browser. Enter the appropriate in the address field. Press enter (PC) or return (Mac).
  2. Enter ubnt in the Username and Password fields. Click Sign in.

  3. The EP-S16 Configuration Interface will appear. Customize additional settings as needed.

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

Fallback IP Address

  1. Ensure that your computer (or other host machine) is connected to the EdgePoint.
  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. Enter the appropriate in the address field (192.168.1.2 is the default fallback IP address). Press enter (PC) or return (Mac).

  4. Enter ubnt in the Username and Password fields. Click Sign In.

  5. The EP-S16 Configuration Interface will appear. Go to Settings .

  6. Change the IP Address to a unique IP address. Click Apply.

Note: If you change the IP settings, then the session will be cut off, and you will need to reconnect to the EdgePoint using the new IP address.

Customize additional settings as needed. 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 54V or 24V passive PoE, ensure that the connected device supports PoE and the supplied voltage.

  1. Go to Dashboard .
  2. For the Ethernet port you want to configure, click the PoE drop-down menu.

  3. Select the appropriate mode:
    • For ports 1-4, select Off, 54V passive 4-pair, or 24V passive 4-pair.
    • For ports 5-16, select Off, PoE+ auto, or 24V passive.
  4. WARNING: Do NOT connect 4-pair PoE devices, such as airFiber devices, to ports 5-16. They support 2-pair PoE only.

    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.

For more information, refer to the EdgeSwitch documentation, which is available at ui.com/download/edgemax
