MAX EIRP and Transmit power
06-02-2013 06:19 PM
Okay here is another general knowledge question i got
As far i understand Max EIRP would be = transmit power + antena gain - cable lost
When on the release note i see 23 maximum trasnmit power that would be transmit power + antena gain ?
Max trasnmit power = 23dbm
But in the max EIRP on my controller with show ap active i see 23.5
Also on the datasheet i see a lost of the connector of the antena of 0.5
So in this case the EIRP would be 23 - 0.5 = 22.5dmb right????
I also see something odd.
the max EIRP of my RAP3 is 18dbm
The mas EIRP of my RAP2 is 19.5dmb
Isnt this odd? the RAP3 shoudld be a better EIRP ?
I see the RAP3 has a 2dbm antena gain but it does not says anything of maximun transmit power neither antena loss...
Anyone can enlight me in this???
I really want to know this clearly... it will help me when im agains other brands...
For example i just realize that the max transmit power of the fortinet APS its 17dbm... and people were comparing it to a ap 93 and ap 105... which for example an ap 105 got a max transmit power of 23dmb! you just cannot compre that... no wonder why its cheaper!
