Package Contents

M5 Self-Tapping Screw
M5 Serrated Washer

Hardware Overview


Passive surge-protected RJ45 Ethernet ports.

Grounding Point

The ETH-SP-G2 must be grounded by one of the following methods:

  • Using the included Self-Tapping Screw to ground the ETH-SP-G2 directly to a grounded metal pole or structure; and using STP cable.
  • Using an M5 machine screw and nut (not included) to attach a drain wire that is connected to a remote grounding block or structure.

Installation Requirements

Mounting accessories and optional drain wire are not included.



Optional: Drain wire, M5 machine screw, and nut are not included.

Note: Place the included Serrated Washer between the screw and drain wire.


Install the ETH-SP-G2 near an Ethernet device. Follow the appropriate steps for your installation:

Pole Mounting

A metal strap or cable tie is not included.

  1. Note: If the Ethernet device is mounted on the pole with a metal strap, you may use the same strap to attach the ETH-SP-G2.

  2. Note: If you are using a drain wire for grounding, proceed to “Connecting Ethernet”.

  3. Proceed to “Connecting Ethernet”.
