The first link of Ninux Firenze is now online! I am now connected to Leonardo via a radio link in the 5GHz bandwith. Let’s summarize the installation, I’ve needed:
- Ubiquity NanoBrige M5 25dBi
- IP56 waterproof container
- 20 m of corrugated pipe
- 20m of STP cat 5e cable
- 2 shielded 5e plugs
The first thing to do was making a hole from a room in the top of the house for the cat 5e cable and the current. I used a 40 cm drill for this dirty job. Luckily I already had an antenna of a wisp.
The next step was mounting the waterproof container. I drilled four holes and mounted the container on the wall outside the room. Inside I’ve mounted 4 sockets for the current.
Later I’ve isolated the holes for the screws with some silicone and drilled some little holes in the bottom of the container for letting water goes out in case of condensation.
Next the roof part. I’ve passed the cat 5e cable in the corrugated pipe, attached the pipe to the container and the antenna on the roof.
The node is now up and running! May the wireless be with you!
