We are looking at deploying few of these. For all our PMP450i gear we use Mikrotik Switches and PacketFlux rackinjectors with Cambium Sync. What is everyone using to power up the PMP450m gear in 3.6 and how are they doing it?
The PMP 450m 3 GHz radio power requirements and recommended power supply:
Power Consumption 140 W typical, 150 W peak (up to 180 W max with AUX port PoE enabled)
Input Voltage 40 - 60 V DC
Recommended Power Supply C000000L054B - 54VDC, 240W
Ben Royer created a video of his install methods:
As Dave points out, this device is a direct DC powered radio. The document he attached, as well as the video should help. In addition, here is another link that goes into more of the physical installation. The LPU is needed for Ethernet based data and requires power on the cable to function properly (PSU or CMM/PacketFlux, typically). If using Fiber SFP, the LPU isn't needed and the SFP2 port should be used.
Our LINKPlanner design tool will build out a BOM and assumes Ethernet connectivity.

Say we are deploying 4 of these on top of a relatively tall tower. Has anyone come up with a small out door enclosure to split out the ~48 volts from rather then running a seperate run for each unit up tower? I still plan on using a seperate "Cambium C000065L007B" surge supressor for each unit but would rather not have 4 power runs up tower.

This might be an option, the Raycap SC2DC-8692-2-P-48-F... it provides for both DC and fiber distribution for small cel sites, along with lightning suppression on the DC line. We originally got this from Cambium to test with a cnRanger deployment... I think they're considering it as a BOM part for their cnRanger LTE line. I think it would also work quite well for 450m 3GHz. I've done a little searching online and am having difficulty finding this part or pricing. Maybe someone from Cambium can chime in on this.
Where exactly these power supplies are placed ?
My guess is they are placed inside the shelter , and fed with ac power supply
If true , I see there are 2 wires at DC output end, red and black
The dc cable coming down from the antennas is a 4 wire cable
Any help in connecting them would really help
This is the same problem we are facing. What was the resolution to this?
Thanks for all help
This guide helped me
