  • Direct input power (5.5 mm outside and 2 mm inside, female, pin positive) accept DC ⎓ 9-30 V DC;

The power consumption of this device under maximum load up to 11 W.

Configuration

RouterOS includes many configuration options in addition to what is described in this document. We suggest starting here to get yourself accustomed to the possibilities: https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:CRS3xx_series_switches.
The Initial connection has to be done via the Ethernet cable, using the MikroTik Winbox utility. Winbox should be used to connect to the default IP address of 192.168.88.1 from any port, with the username admin and no password.
For recovery purposes, it is possible to reinstall the device from the network, see the Reset button.
In case the IP connection is not available, the Winbox tool (https://mt.lv/winbox) can also be used to connect to the MAC address of the device. Applies only when the device has booted RouterOS.

Extension Slots and Ports

  • Five SFP ports.
  • DC power jack connector.

Reset button

To use the reset button, hold it and then turn on the device, while still holding the button.

  • Release the button when the green LED starts flashing, to reset the RouterOS configuration.
  • To load the backup bootloader, you can start holding the button after power is already applied.
  • Release the button after LED is no longer flashing (~20 seconds) to cause the device to look for Netinstall servers (required for reinstalling RouterOS over the network). You can also release the button at the time when the device has appeared on the Netinstall utility device list.

Regardless of the above option used, the system will load the backup RouterBOOT loader if the button is pressed before power is applied to the device. Useful for RouterBOOT debugging and recovery.

Accessories

The package includes the following accessories that come with the device:

Please visit wiki pages for the MikroTik SFP module compatibility table: https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/MikroTik_SFP_module_compatibility_table
When using devices that come with separated SFP+ cages, it is still not recommended to deploy the S+RJ10 transceivers beside each other. Use S+RJ10 in every second interface to avoid transceivers overheating which may cause unpredictable behavior.
