1. Power Connect power cable to -48 power supply with the provided cable; [Mean Well SP3XXX] No image "Slide2.PNG" attached to cLTE/cHardware/cAirSynergy
2. Networking Insert SFP+ and connect; list of supported SFP+s
3. Serial Console (optional) If needed for debugging

Fully connected AirSynergy without weatherproofing covers should look like this:

Power Supply

The AirSynergy supports direct connection to a -48VDC nominal power source.
Operating Voltage Range: -40.5 to 57 VDC

A power supply capable of 2A or greater is recommended (eg. Mean Well CLG-100-48).

Power Supply Connector/Cable

The base station end of the power supply cable uses a Molex 0039012040 housing (Digikey: WM3701-ND) with Molex 0039000039 pins (Digikey: WM2501-ND). The power supply cable itself is 4-conductor 16 AWG.

Compatible SFP+ Adapters

The following SFP+ adapters were tested for compatibility with the AirSynergy.

Serial Debug

The base station has a 9 pin connector (hidden behind a black hex bolt next to the port marked "ETH") which allows access to the two serial consoles (one for the Airspan radio and the other for the networking unit). This is useful for recovery purposes when the base station does not respond via software, SSH, or web interfaces.

Serial Debug Connector/Cable

Compatible connector is made by CUI Inc. model MD-90 (Digikey: CP-2090-ND)

  • Black plastic casing and strain relief are discarded, otherwise it will not fit into the base station.
  • The front ¾" of the connector exterior must be kept clear (even heat shrink tubing on the front section will prevent insertion).
  • Solder wires to the shorter/larger diameter pins.
  • It is recommended to use hot glue or other potting compound on the rear of the connector to hold it and the wires together (since we had to discard the plastic casing).

Pinout of base station "jack":

airspan TX1, RX1
asil8xx TX2, RX2
Ground outer metal shell

Connect the cable to a standard RS232 serial port (no null-modem adapter needed).

Serial Port Settings
Baud Rate 120000
Data Bits 8
Stop Bits 1
Parity none
Flow Control none
Transmitted Text append carriage return (not applicable to PuTTY)

NOTE: PuTTY is recommended because it can properly forward commands like Ctrl+C to the base station which are necessary because the consoles have a linux style shell.
