Reset Button

This button serves two functions for the UniFi Switch:

  • Restart Press and release the Reset button quickly.
  • Restore to Factory Default Settings Press and hold the Reset button for more than five seconds.

Console Port

Console Port

RJ45 serial console port for Command Line Interface (CLI) management. Use an RJ45-to-DB9, serial console cable, also known as a rollover cable, to connect the Console port to your computer. Then configure the following settings as needed:

  • Baud rate 115200
  • Data bits 8
  • Parity NONE
  • Stop bits 1
  • Flow control NONE

DC Input

The 48/24VDC input can connect a redundant or stand-alone DC power source (not included) with minimum power: 56W, 57 to 20V.

Note: You can use the redundant DC power source as a hot spare; if the internal AC/DC power supply no longer provides power, the UniFi Switch will switch to the DC power source without interrupting its operation.

Power Port

Connect the included Power Cord to the Power port.
