Introduction
When users purchase a Motorola WLAN solution, they often need to place access points in
obscure locations. In the past, a dedicated 24-hour, power source was required for each access
point in addition to the Ethernet infrastructure. This often required an electrical contractor to
install power drops at each access point location. With the Motorola AP-5181 Power Tap
solution (Part No. AP-PSBIAS-5181-01R), centralized power can now be provided for an AP-
5181 (deployed outdoors) without a local power supply for each AP-5181. Thus, the Power Tap
is optimal for proper electrical isolation from outdoor electrical events.
Product Description
The Motorola Power Tap (Part No. AP-PSBIAS-5181-01R) is a single-port, 802.3af compliant
Power-over-Ethernet hub combining low-voltage DC with Ethernet data in a single cable
connecting to an AP-5181 model access point. The Power Tap is designed and ruggedized for
use with an AP-5181s outdoor deployment. The Power Taps single DC and Ethernet data cable
creates a modified Ethernet cabling environment eliminating the need for separate Ethernet
and power cables.
* 5 Amp Circuit Breaker UL Listed; 1 or 2 Pole for L/N only.
Caution - The Power Tap should only be used with a Motorola AP-5181 model access point.
The Power Tap has a 100-280 VAC power input (LINE AC connector) on the bottom of the unit,
accessed through a weather sealed gland. To supply power, a certified electrician is required
to open the Power Tap enclosure, feed the power cable (customer supplied) through the Line
AC gland, secure the power cable to the units three screw termination block and tighten the
units LINE AC gland (by hand) to ensure the power cable is properly weather sealed.
Caution - Only a certified electrician should attempt to open the Power Tap and feed the power
cable into the unit, as a shock hazard exists when working inside the Power Tap enclosure.
The Power Tap has a transient ground on the back of the unit used to ground the unit at the
point of installation as a means of surge protection. A separate Power Tap is required for each
AP-5181 comprising the network. The connection of the transient ground to an earth ground is
required to ensure the safe operation of the Power Tap.
Caution - Ensure the Power Tap is connected to a protected AC supply (AC mains service
disconnect box or breaker box). Again, only a certified electrician should attempt to open the
Power Tap enclosure and install the unit.
Caution - Using the Power Tap with an unsupported Motorola device (other than the AP-5181
model access point) could render the device inoperable and void the devices warranty.
The Power Tap has no On/Off power switch. The Power Tap receives power and is
ready for AP-5181 device connection and operation as soon as AC power is applied.
The Power Tap has the following features:
Supports standard 10/100BaseT Ethernet networks over a standard TIA/EIA-568
Category 5 (or higher) cabling
Meets the IEEE 802.3af standard- mid span power over un-used pairs (no discovery)
Power Input (LINE AC connector): 100-280 VAC
Minimum port output continuous allowable power of 15W at 48V minimum
(minimum 12.95W at the PDTE)
Wall mount installation support

Installation
Preparing for Site Installation
The Power Tap can be wall mounted using the Power Taps wall mounting key holes or using an
Accessories Kit (Part No. KT-5181-WP-01R). The following guidelines should be adhered to
before cabling the Power Tap:
Verify the device receiving converged power and Ethernet from the Power Tap is an
AP-5181 model access point.
Do not block or cover airflow to the Power Tap.

Verify the power cord is UL listed and marked water resistant, outdoor, W or
W-A.
Ensure overcurrent protection (meeting the maximum rating of 5A) is installed at the
access points installation site in front of the Power Tap and access point.
Mount the Power Tap with its cabling facing downward.

Ensure the communication cable (CAT5, CAT5e or CAT.6) is 26AWG min, type CM, CMG,
CMR or CMP, and UL listed. Refer to Articles 725 and 800 (specifically) for clearances
from power and lighting conductors and transient protection.
The Power Tap is not a repeater, and does not amplify the Ethernet data signal. For
optimal performance, ensure the Power Tap is placed as close as possible to the network
data port. Do not configure the cable length between the Ethernet network source, the
Power Tap and the AP-5181 beyond 100 meters (333ft).
Mounting the Power Tap
The Power Tap can be mounted to any wall (or other vertical flat surface).
To mount the Power Tap:
1. Attach the Power Tap to a wall with flat side flush against the wall.
2. Position the Power Tap in the intended location and mark the positions of the two
mounting screw holes.
3. Drill two holes in the wall that match the marks defined for the screw holes.
4. Align the Power Tap in its intended mounting position. Ensure the Power Taps
DATA/PWR OUT connector is oriented downward.
5. Secure the Power Tap to the wall using two customer supplied screws.
Cabling the Power Tap
Caution - As part of the Power Tap installation, an electrician is required to open the Power
Tap unit, feed the power cable through the Line AC gland, secure the power cable to the units
three screw termination block and tighten the units Line AC gland (by hand) to ensure the
power cable is weather sealed. Only a certified electrician should conduct the installation.
Caution - Ensure AC power is supplied to the Power Tap using an AC cable with an appropriate
ground connection approved for the country of operation.
Caution - Ensure the Power Taps protective earth terminal is permanently connected to earth.
To install the Power Tap to an Ethernet data source and Motorola device:
1. Connect an RJ-45 Ethernet cable between the network data supply (host) and the Power
Power Taps DATA IN connector.
2. Connect an RJ-45 Ethernet cable between the Power Taps DATA/PWR OUT connector
and the access points LAN port. Caution - Cabling the Power Tap to the access points
WAN port renders the access point non-operational. Only use the Power Tap with the
AP-5181s LAN port.
3. Have a certified electrician open the Power Tap enclosure, feed the power cable through
the units LINE AC gland, secure the power cable to the units three screw termination
block and tighten the units LINE AC gland (by hand) to ensure the power cable is
weather sealed.
4. Attach a ground cable between the EARTH GROUND terminal (on the back of the unit)
to a suitable earth ground connection as defined by your local electrical code.
Failure to do so will significantly reduce outside surge protection and put internal
network connectors at risk of shock.
5. Verify all cable connections are complete before supplying power to the AP-5181 access
point.

Caution - Unlike other Motorola Power-over-Ethernet solutions, the AP-5181 Power Tap
(Part No. AP-PSBIAS-5181-01R) does not have LED indicators. An AP-5181 is ready for
operation (at an operating temperature at or above -30C) as soon as all cable connections have
been made and the Power Tap has been connected to a correctly rated power supply.
Troubleshooting
The following potential Power Tap problem scenarios should be addressed as follows:
Power Tap does not power up properly
1. Verify the power cord is rated appropriately for the intended country of operation
2. Verify the voltage at the power inlet is between 100 and 280 VAC.
3. Remove and reapply power to the Power Tap.
AP-5181 receives power but no Ethernet
1. Verify the Ethernet cable is connected to an active hub or switch port on the network.
2. Verify the port indicator on the front panel is continuously illuminated.
3. Verify you are using a standard UTP/FTP Category 5 straight (non-crossover) cabling
with all four pairs.
4. Ensure the Ethernet cable length is less than 100 meters from the Ethernet data source
to the Power Tap.
5. Reconnect the AP-5181 to a different Power Tap. If the AP-5181 receives power, there
is probably a faulty port or RJ-45 connection on the Power Tap.
