Aruba Enclosures

What enclosures does Aruba reccomend for the AP175 in a -70° environment?  I have AP175's (and IAP175's) throughout Alaska that have survived Afgan weather but the cold in AK is knocking them offline.  Suggestions?  POE heaters?

The AP/IAP-175 have heaters built in.
According to the data sheet, you're looking at -40 max.

Not too sure what type of enclosure you can find that will help.

Re: Aruba Enclosures

Correct me if I'm wrong but the IAP 175 AC with the external power supply are the only ones with heaters?  All of ours are the IAP/AP 175P's.

Re: Aruba Enclosures

All models have a heater of some sort. -40 is as low as we can test to for our requirements. Putting them in a properly sized and rated enclosure and plumbing through the antennas via bulkhead connectors, should be fine. you will suffer some additional loss on the antennas due to the added connectors and jumpers.
