Reset Button

To reset to factory defaults:

  1. Disconnect power from the device.
  2. Reconnect power while holding the Reset button. The port LEDs will repeatedly light up in sequential order (this takes approximately five seconds).
  3. When both port LEDs flash twice at the same time, release the Reset button.

DC Out

Connect the Power Cable with DC Jack to this terminal block for 24V, 3A output.

Battery In

Optional: Connect the Power Cable with Ring Terminals to a 12V lead acid battery (not included).

Note: The external battery may be used as a hot backup. It will provide continuous power in the event of an interruption or loss of power on the Power port.

Power Port

Connect the included Power Cord.

Hardware Installation

The EdgePower can be mounted on a horizontal surface, mounted on a vertical surface, or mounted in a rack (rackmount accessory not included).

WARNING: The EdgePower must not be stacked. Do not place it on top of another device. Do not place anything on top of the EdgePower.

Connecting Power

Use the included Power Cord to power the EdgePower. You can also use the Battery Input option as a hot backup.

Using the Power Cord

Using the Battery Input (Optional)

For redundant power backup, connect an external 12VDC battery (not included) to the EdgePower.

Note: Only one power source can be used at any one time. With both power sources connected, the AC input will be used; the battery input defaults to backup.

Connecting Ethernet

WARNING: Before enabling PoE passthrough in the EdgePower Configuration Interface, ensure that the connected PoE device supports 24V Passive PoE.
