Cambium e500, e501S, e502S outdoor WiFi Access Point Data Sheet

Omni and Sector Outdoor Wi-Fi Access Point

cnPilot e500, e501S and e502S are medium- to highdensity outdoor Wi-Fi access points (AP) with a multifunctional design. These APs have internal antennas and an integrated mounting bracket to simplify installation. Perfect for a variety of applications, from omni-directional coverage to long-range Wi-Fi or high-interference outdoorwhere a directional RF beam is required. The e501S and e502S have a 23 dBm front-to-back signal delta for excellent isolation in high-interference environments.

The cnPilot e500/501/502 series includes a second gigbit Ethernet port to power up and connect a Cambium fixed wireless subscriber module, or any powered Ethernet device. e501S and e502S features Cambium engineered high gain sector antenna array that projects RF energy in a 1,200 or 300 arc out the front of the AP, with ~ -10dB in the remaining 600 providing a full 1,800 coverage, this is ideal for outdoor Wi-Fi on a warehouse, retail store, anywhere the AP is installed on the outside of the building. e501S features power out on one gigabit Ethernet port to connect any IP- and PoE-powered device such as an IP camera, Cambium fixed wireless subscriber module, or another Wi-Fi AP. Additionally, the e501S includes enterprise features designed to improve reliable connections. Controller-less roaming, dynamic channel selection, automatic transmit power control, band steering, multi-hop MESH with alternating 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands are all features of the cnPilot 500/501/502 series.

cnMaestro Essential cloud management is included at no additional cost. There are no setup fees, licenses or recurring costs. cnMaestro includes detailed network statistics, channel utilization graphs, and integrated remote troubleshooting tools to ensure service is always on.

Integrated troubleshooting tools provide remote access for packet capture, client statistics, operational and RF statistics, and RF scanning for interference, channel utilization, and noise floor scan.
