The device is designed to use indoors and it can be mounted in a rackmount enclosure using provided rack mounts, or it can be placed on the desktop. Please attach rubber pegs on the bottom of the router if the desired placement is on the flat surface or use a Phillips screwdriver to attach rackmount ears on both sides of the device if designated use is for rackmount enclosure:
- Attach rack ears to both sides of the device and tighten four screws to secure them in place, as shown in the picture.
- Place the device in the rackmount enclosure and align with the holes so that the device fits conveniently.
- Tighten screws to secure it in place.
The device has no protection from water contamination, please ensure the placement of the device in a dry and ventilated environment.
We recommend Cat6 cables for our devices.
Mounting and configuration of this device should be done by a qualified person.
The unit is equipped with one IEC type AC power input, which accepts 100-240 V ⏦ powering (~ 50/60 Hz 7 A max). The power consumption of this device itself under maximum load is up to 44 W.
The device supports booting RouterOS (for complete routing and switching configuration) or SwOS (for only using as a switch). By default, the device will boot RouterOS, but you can reboot into the other operating system in the following ways:
- From SwOS: In the System menu, click the "Boot RouterOS" button on the bottom of the page.
- From RouterOS: in the System, RouterBOARD menu, click "Settings" and there select "Boot OS".
It is also possible to select the OS and configure other boot settings via the serial console menu.
Full RouterOS and SwOS documentation is located here: https://mt.lv/help
This device is not preconfigured other than an IP address on the master Ethernet port. You can connect from any port, as all ports are switched together by default. Another configuration has to be applied according to the documentation manual linked above.
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 boot the device from the network, see Buttons, and Jumpers.
In case the IP connection is not available, the Winbox utility can also be used to connect to the MAC address of the device. Applies only when the device has booted RouterOS.
The device is equipped with an RJ45 serial port, set by default to 115200bit/s, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity. Standard RJ45 to COM cable can be used, pinout can be found in our manual: https://mt.lv/help
This device can supply PoE powering to external devices from its Ethernet ports. The output voltage will be selected automatically, depending on what kind of voltage the connected device requires. The device can power both 802.3af/at devices and devices that accept passive PoE power. If necessary, the output voltage can be switched manually. By default the PoE mode is set to auto, it will not damage devices and will auto-detect devices with PoE support and the needed voltage. Once a PoE device is detected, it will be powered and the PoE LEDs will turn on.
The PoE out ports is grouped in three PoE out groups of 8 ports each (PSE8). Total device PoE limit = 450w (150w per PSE8 group).
Each port can provide up to 30 W with high voltage, and 26,5 W with low voltage power output.
Buttons and Jumpers
- Hold this button during boot time until the USR LED light starts flashing, release the button to reset RouterOS configuration.
- Keep holding the button for 5 more seconds or until the user LED turns off, then release it to make the RouterBOARD look for Netinstall servers. The first Ethernet port is used for the Netinstall process. See RouterOS documentation about using the Netinstall recovery utility.
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. Release the button before LED begins to flash, to only load backup RouterBOOT without resetting. This is useful for RouterBOOT debugging and recovery.
The action of the mode buttons can be configured from RouterOS software to execute any user-supplied RouterOS script. You can also disable this button. The mode button can be configured in RouterOS menu /system routerboard mode-button
Extension slots and ports
- 24 gigabit Ethernet ports (With Auto MDI/X so you can use either straight or cross-over cables for connecting to other network devices).
- 4 SFP+ cages, which accept both 1.25 Gb SFP and 10 Gb SFP+ modules.
- RJ45 serial port.
- PWR LED is lit when the router is powered on.
- The use of LEDs can be configured from RouterOS.
- Triangle LEDs (top row) indicate PoE out status. Green LED indicates that the respective port uses low voltage, a red LED indicates high voltage. Flashing single green LED: problem to start a low voltage device. Flashing single red LED: problem with high voltage device.
- The square port LEDs (bottom row) indicate the individual Ethernet, SFP port activity.
- FAN FAULT LED indicates a problem with any of the cooling fans.
- PoE FAULT LED indicates an exceeded overall max PoE output limit. Port PoE-out priorities will work in 3 independent sections (8 ports each) and overload will happen in any section that breach 150W consumption
