Outdoor AP - 224 vs 275

  • 1.  Outdoor AP - 224 vs 275

    Posted Feb 05, 2015 12:23 AM

    Guys, I have a customer who needs outdoor APs. They currently use Cisco APs in Nema boxes with external antennas for this but experienced problems in the past with overheating. Temperature in their location exceeds 100 degrees often. Their current plan is to use currently owned AP224 in the nema with external antennas. The questions is what kind of temperatures can the 224 handle over time and what would be the added benefits to use AP275 instead of the 224 in the Nema boxes?

    The 270 series APs are self-contained and are rated up to 150 degrees F. 


    Thanks,

    the 224 can handle:

    --Temperature: 0° C to +50° C (+32° F to +122° F)

    --Humidity: 5% to 95% non-condensing

    --Storage and transportation:

    --Temperature: -40° C to +70° C (-40° F to +158° F)

     

    Is there any special cooling or environmental differences with the 275 other than the self contained casing?

    It's designed to be used outdoors.
