Connecting the W52P Base Station

You have two options for power and network connection of the base station:

  • AC power (Optional)
  • Power over Ethernet (PoE)


  • Pay attention to the radio coverage of the base station. It is up to 300m in unobstructed outdoor areas and up to 50m inside buildings.
  • Set up the base station and the charger cradle at a central location on a flat, non-slip surface.

AC Power (Optional)

  1. Connect the DC plug on the power adapter to the DC5V port on the base station and connect the other end of the power adapter into an electrical power outlet.
  2. Connect the supplied Ethernet cable between theInternet port on the base station and the Internet por in your network or switch device port.


    The base station should be used with the Yealink original power adapter (5V/600mA) only. The use of the third-party power adapter might cause damage to the base station.

Power over Ethernet

Using a regular Ethernet cable, the base station can be powered from a PoE-compliant (IEEE 802.3af) switch or hub.

To connect the PoE:

  1. Connect the Ethernet cable between the Internet port on the base station and an available port on the in-line power switch/hub.


If the in-line power is provided, you don’t need to connect the AC adapter. Make sure the switch/hub is PoE compliant.


Do not remove the power and network to the base station while it is updating firmware and configurations
