Re: ap 275 - Environmental Ratings and Security

Hi Matthew,


The AP275 is a very robust outdoor AP built for harsh environments. Aruba is so confident in this that a lifetime warrantly, per the indoor APs, is extended to this model range, currently unique in the market.


The build of the AP27x series uses an alloy chassis in the top of the AP. This has a powder coated finish to protect from corrosion.


On the AP275, an ABS plastic radome hangs underneath in which the antennas are housed and protected from the weather.


The top section of the AP also has a slotted, vented ABS plastic cover which acts as a sun shield for the electroincs.


The AP may be painted with suitable non-metallic paint and warranty retained, per the conditions below:


If the painting process fouls the grounding location, LED, or any of the connector interfaces the warranty is void.


Dark colors should not be used in areas where the daytime temperature exceeds 45C

In the event of a failure Aruba does not assume any liability for painting costs of replacement units.


Use paint that is free of any metals, and thin enough to not block any vents.

  • They should be primed then painted
  • Connectors should be masked off. Want to paint just the plastic bits
  • Primer - D61H75 "Polane 2.8 Plus Spray Fil"
  • Top Coat - Polane Type "HS Plus Polyurethane"


The rated environmental ranges:


• Operating:
- Temperature: -40° C to +65° C (-40° F to +150° F)
- Humidity: 5% to 95% non-condensing
• Storage and transportation:
- Temperature: -40° C to +70° C (-40° F to +158° F)
• Operating Altitude: 3000m
• Chassis Rating: IP66 and IP67
• Wind Survivability: Up to 165 mph
• Shock and Vibration: ETSI 300-19-2-4 spec T41.E 4M3 


No internal heaters are utilised for these APs. The components are rated to start and run at the rated tempurature limits. The AP is designed to be self heating in the electroinc housing section and rated to operate in excess of 70° C. The pastic shield prevents inadvertant contact with the metallic parts.
