Oberon™ In-Plane™ Recessed Mounts 1042
Oberon™ In-Plane™ Recessed Mounts 1042 offers the simplest way to mount access points and antennas from most leading vendors into existing hard (drywall/sheetrock) ceilings up to 1.5 in. thick, for an aesthetic, professional installation. A cutout is made in the ceiling and the all metal back-box is fastened into the ceiling. The AP fastens to the appropriate trim, and the AP/trim attaches to the to the back-box with torsion springs. The AP is recessed into the ceiling much like a recessed light fixture, with only the front face exposed for optimal wireless coverage. The AP trim is easily swapped for new trim when AP brand or model changes.
