Ap 175 Grounding


Should I use ground connections of AP for outdoor projects. Is it vital to use ground connection on AP. And, does it affect the antenna performance or efficiency? (Antenna is AP-ANT-90)(ap-175)


Ground connection is required

The ground connection is critical to protect the AP from damage by induced transients and is a safety (UL) requirement for installation of outdoor products.

It is always required to be connected to keep warranty valid.

The RF performance is probably not so much an issue.
