Cisco IW 3700/IW3702 Access Point for Coolers

For the users who wanna get some wireless coverage in the cooler area, the multiple coolers with temperature may ranges from -5F to 30F, what kind of Cisco Access Points will fit this environment?

How about the Cisco Industrial Wireless 3700 Series Access Point? In this article, we will focus on the Environmental and Operating Specifications for the Cisco IW3702 Access Point. The detailed information may help you select a right Cisco Access point for your harder environment…Cisco IW3702 Access Points-

The Cisco IW3702 access point is an IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac compliant, dual-band Wi-Fi access point with external antennas.

The access point is IP67 rated, ruggedized, and certified for on-board rail and outdoor use-cases such as train and trackside, mining, intelligent transportation systems, oil and gas, and factory Connected Grid applications. You can mount the access point on a DIN rail in an industrial enclosure. Its components are designed to withstand extremes in temperature, vibration, and shock common in industrial environments.

The Detailed Environmental, Operational Specifications and Power Requirements for the Cisco IW3702 

Environmental and Operating Specifications for the Access Point

Description Specification
Operating temperature –40 to 158°F (–40 to +70°C) with solar load and still air
Altitude 15,000 ft. (4.5 m)
Humidity 5 to 95% (non-condensing)
Extended operating temperature (DC power) –58 to 167°F (–50 to +75°C) without solar loading, still air, and cold start limited to –40°C
Operating type test 185°F (85°C) for 16 hours
Storage temperature –50 to 185°F (–50 to +85°C)
Vibration Per IEEE 1613, IEC 61850, EN50155, and AREMA
Shock Per IEEE 1613, IEC 61850, EN50155, and AREMA
Seismic Per IEC 61850-3 Class 2

 

Power Requirements for the Access Point

Description Specification
DC input voltage ■12V to 48V DC (-20%, +25%)■Nominal: 12, 24, or 48 VDC
Maximum DC voltage input rating ■2 A @ 48 VDC■4 A @ 24 VDC

■8 A @ 12 VDC

 

DC Input and PoE IN Specifications

The access point supports two power options:

DC input from the PWR connector.

PoE inline power from the PoE IN port.

Notes:  The PoE OUT port is enabled only when the access point is powered over the PWR port. When powered over the PoE IN port, PoE OUT functionality is not supported.In relation to powering the access point:

■Power can be supplied by the DC input (PWR port connection) or the PoE inline power (PoE IN port), but not both.

■We recommend not using the two power options at the same time, but no harm results if both are present.

■If both power inputs are present, the DC input (PWR port connection) takes precedence and PoE IN becomes idle and unused.

■Power supply redundancy is not supported.

 

The following Table lists specifications for the available power inputs.
