Console Port

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

DC Input

Optional DC input for connecting a redundant or stand-alone 42 to 56VDC power source, such as the EdgePower EP-54V-150W.

Note: The redundant DC power source may be used as a hot backup. The DC power source will provide continuous power in the event of an interruption or loss of AC power.

AC Power Port

Connect the included Power Cord to the AC Power port.

Ground

Ground bonding point for an optional ground wire.

Hardware Installation

WARNING: The ES-8-150W must not be stacked. Do not place it on top of another switch. Do not place anything on top of the ES-8-150W.

Connecting AC Power

Connecting DC Power (Optional)

For stand-alone DC power or redundant power backup, connect a 42 to 56VDC power source to the EdgeSwitch:

Note: Only AC power or DC power can be used at any one time. With both power sources connected, the input with the highest voltage will be used (output voltage of the internal AC/DC PSU is 54VDC); the other power source defaults to backup.

  1. Note: Polarity is self-correcting.

Accessing the Configuration Interface

The EdgeSwitch is set to DHCP by default, so it will try to automatically obtain an IP address. 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. Type the appropriate IP address in the address field. Press enter (PC) or return (Mac).
  2. Enter ubnt in the Username and Password fields. Click Sign In.

  3. The EdgeSwitch Configuration Interface will appear. Customize additional settings as needed.

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

Fallback IP Address

  1. Ensure that your computer (or other host system) is connected to the EdgeSwitch.
  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 the appropriate IP address 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 EdgeSwitch 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 EdgeSwitch using the new IP address.

Customize additional settings as needed. For more information, refer to the EdgeSwitch documentation, which is available at ui.com/download/edgemax
