Hi, I have installed into my network 4 ap model AP-305, but only one show always system status led color "Amber-solid", i don't know why!
The installation guide show this state how "Device Ready: Power safe mode (802.3af) ".
do you know how this ap show always this state?
The ap is connected to Switch HPE OfficeConnect 1920 48G PoE+ (370W), and port show power to 17%.
can you help me, please?

Do you have LLDP enabled on those switchports? That is typically how the AP negotiates higher power on that port.

yes, i have LLPD enable on my HP 1920, this is "status information" on switch log:

That status can be due to operating in 802.3af reduced power mode.
Check this thread and this section of datasheet:
show ap debug system-status | begin Power
will tell you more!

From the logs that you have attached,
Power Supply : POE-AF
LLDP Power : Successfully negotiated at 17.0W
Current Operational State : USB port enabled;
From 300 series datasheet:
- Unrestricted functionality with 802.3at PoE
- When using IPM, the AP may enter power-save mode with reduced functionality when powered by an 802.3af PoE source (see details on Intelligent Power Monitoring elsewhere in this datasheet) -
-Without IPM, the USB port is disabled when the AP is powered by an 802.3af PoE source •
-Maximum (worst-case) power consumption: 13W (PoE) or 11W (DC) - -Excludes power consumed by external USB device (and internal overhead); this could add up to 6.5W (PoE) or 5.5W (DC) for a 5W/1A USB device •

Hi Singla, ok, but whit my AP is it possibile for you disable IPM?
I have installed a hp 1920 48 port switch dedicated only for my ap, and the power is not my problem!! in this switch i use only 4 port... :-)
I have ap 305 whith this version: 184.108.40.206-220.127.116.11_57768
