Oberon™ In-Plane™ Recessed Mounts 1043
Oberon™ In-Plane™ Recessed Mounts 1043 offers the simplest way to mount access points and antennas from most leading vendors into new construction (drywall/sheetrock) ceilings up to 1.5 in. thick, for an aesthetic, professional installation. The back-box is fastened to the ceiling joists, and the new ceiling is cut around the box. When construction is complete, the access point fastens to the appropriate trim, and the trim attaches 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/antenna trim is easily swapped when AP/antenna brand or model changes.
