AP374 and a 4x4 D608 ANT

Hey @onno 

 

A customer asked me a question...

If they have an AP374 and a 4x4 D608 ANT, can two be connected to 2.4GHz and two be connected to 5GHz? For 2x2 2.4GHz and 2x2 5GHz using a single D608? They would only be doing this for test purposes. The final solution being all $ connected to 5GHz and a separate ANT for the 2x2 2.4GHz. 

 

Looking at the makeup of the 4x4 D608 ANT, I said I would not recommend it but I would verify with you guys if it could be done or not.

Yes, you could do this.

Make sure to connect antenna ports 0 and 1.

That means you're leaving antennas 2 and 3 on 5GHz unconnected.

Not recommended (we have no way to disable 3SS and 4SS operation), but it'll work. They should terminate the unused ports with dummy loads.

Thanks man. As for the ANT.. it has 4 ports. 

-45

+45

V

H

How should those correspond to the 374 ports 5GHz 0,1 and 2,4GHz 0,1?

 

Thanks again @onno

Use +/- 45 for one radio, V and H for the other
