The surface-mount bracket allows enough space behind the MATE3 that the CAT5 cable can be brought directly into the MATE3 without routing the cable through a wall. In addition, the bracket can be attached to an existing mounting plate, such as the OutBack FLEXPower ONE assembly. This is usually only done when a bracket is being replaced.
NOTE: The cable can be routed into the back of the mounting bracket through an opening in the wall or surface. This cabling method can be used if the cable must be concealed inside a wall or brought from one room to another.
IMPORTANT: Hardware Required
- Because this bracket is intended for mounting against many different types of walls (wallboard, masonry, etc.), the attachment hardware is not included. The user must provide screws, anchors, and anything else appropriate for that particular mounting material. (Machine screws are provided for attaching the bracket to a FLEXpower ONE assembly.)
- If the cable will be routed through the wall into the back of the mounting bracket, it may be necessary to cut or drill a hole in the appropriate location. This step should be performed before mounting.
- The CAT5 cable must be brought through the hole and made available to plug into the MATE3 before performing this installation.
