AP AC-Lite 802.3af compatibility

I understand Ubiquiti is making the AP AC-Lite 802.3af compatible after 2016.

 

I just installed a AC-Lite and it's running on an old Edge switch on 24v. I picked up a Switch 8 and need to know how you can tell if the AC-Lite is new stock or old stock...I don't want to find out by frying my new switch...and I don't want to buy a converter if not needed

Hello @plongson,

 

Look at the 4 first numbers and letter on the MAC ID.

Example: 1833K

MAC Address??

 

Can you actually fry the unit or will it trip an overload?

Hello @plongson,

 

That is the UAPs MAC Address, you can find the MAC ID on the back of the unit.

Hello @plongson,

 

At the back of your unit you have the MAC ID, you want to take a look at the first 4 numbers and 1 letter.

Hello @fvancauw,


What you mean with V1/V2?

Take a look at the datecodes.

Re: AP AC-Lite 802.3af compatibility

The four digits, before the letter, is the date code. For instance, 1740 would mean that the AP is manufactured during week 40, year 2017 (YYWW).

Hello @fvancauw,

 

First 4 numbers and 1 letter of the MAC ID.

Anything above 1638/around Sept. 2016 support both.
