LtAP main board dimensions / mounting screw locations

Sun Jan 09, 2022 10:40 pm

Hi everyone. I'm planning on using a LtAP with my own LTE modem (Quectel EM12G) inside a Poyting ePoynt antenna enclosure. This takes routers and router boards of up to 185 x 145mm, so the entire LtAP doesn't fit inside, but its main board might, if I take the case apart. Mikrotik's website naturally has the assembled product dimensions, not the motherboard's. I bought the Poynting enclosure but haven't acquired the router yet; does anyone have and/or can provide LtAP board dimensions and, if possible, mounting screw distances?

Thanks in advance.

Come on people, do you really have to quote full posts? It's annoying and in most cases useless.

Excellent, thank you. I'm assuming the connectors on the topside, bottom right & centre are for external wifi antennas or a 2x2 MIMO setup? Are those MMCX, TS9 or can anyone make out what type of connector is that?

Thanks again in advance folks!

MMCX connectors are only for testing, not for increase Wi-Fi gain.

I'd be interested in hearing how you get on with this - I've been thinking about this type of project too (I'm a fan of Poynting antennas)

I'll be sure to post my setup and results here as soon as my Poynting enclosures arrive (I have the two models on order). In the meantime, I know this won't be Mikrotik Forum but I posted my test setup on Reddit. It's been chugging along nicely with very basic IoT antennas but strangely an indoor TP-Link cat6 router easily outperforms it now (approx. 150mbps down for the cat12 prototype installed outdoors and near the roof, 220mbps+ for the TP-Link).
