The Cel-Fi QUATRA 4000 Range Extender is a Power over Ethernet (PoE) device that extends the maximum distance between the QUATRA 4000 Network Unit and the Coverage Unit. This allows for plug-and-play installations with cable lengths up to 200 meters.
The Range Extender is designed solely for use with the Cel-Fi QUATRA 4000, and will not work with Cel-Fi QUATRA 1000/2000 variants or other devices. Only one (1) Extender may be used per Cel-Fi QUATRA Coverage Unit.
Step 1 - Locate and mount the Extender unit
- Input and Output port LEDs should be clearly visible
- Allow adequate ventilation
- Do not mount in direct sunlight, near heat sources, or in weather-exposed areas
- The Cat 5e cables that connect the INPUT ports to the QUATRA Network Unit should not exceed 100 meters in length
- The Cat 5e cables that connect the OUTPUT port to the Cel-Fi QUATRA Coverage Unit should not exceed 100 meters in length
Note: Cel-Fi QUATRA Range Extender cables from the NU to the CU must be dedicated. The system will not function if common shared LAN resources are used with the cabling (routers, switches, etc).
STEP 2: Connect INPUT and OUTPUT cabling
- The Range Extenders power is provided by the cables from the Cel-Fi QUATRA Network Unit
- RJ45 LED #1 (solid amber) indicates the power
- RJ45 LED #2 will blink green during initialization and will be solid green when the Extender has passed self-testing and is operating normally
- If both LEDs blink off periodically on a port, the port is resetting to try and establish communications with the Network Unit or Coverage Unit it is connected to. Check cables and connections if this occurs.
- If both INPUT LEDs are off, check the cable to the QUATRA Network Unit and that the Network Unit is powered up
- If both OUTPUT LEDs are off, check the cable to the QUATRA Coverage Unit
