5.RJ45 Console Port
RJ45 serial console port for Command Line Interface (CLI) management Use an RA5-toDB9, serial console cable, also known as a rollover cable, to connect the Console port to your computer. Then configure the following settings as needed:•Baud rate 115200•Data bits 8•Parity NONE•Stop bits 1•Flow control NONE
6. RJ45 (Ports 1 – 4)
RJ45 ports support 100 Mbps or 1/2.5/5/10 Gbps Ethernet connections and 8023af/at/bt PoE output
7. SFP+ (Ports 5 – 6)
Hot-swappable SFP+ ports support 1/10 Gbps connections.8. USB Console Port
USB Type C console port for Command Une Interface (CLI) management.
9. Reset Button
This button serves two functions for the UniFi Switch:•Restart Press and release the Reset button quickly.•Restore to Factory Default Settings Press and hold the Reset button for more than five seconds.
10. DC Input
Optional DC Input for connecting a stand-alone or redundant DC power source (not included) with minimum power:40W, 44 to 57VDC.Note: Ensure the polarity Is correct red Is positive (+) and black Is negative (-). You can use the redundant DC power source as a hot spare; if there is no longer power through the Power port, the UniFi Switch will switch to the DC power source without interrupting its operation.
11. Power Port
Connect the Included Power Adapter to the Power port.
12. Ground
Ancillary grounding point for enhanced ESD protection.

Hardware Installation

The UniFi Switch can be mounted on a horizontal or vertical surface.WARNING: The US-XG-6POE must not be stacked. Do not place it on top of another switch. Do not place anything on top of the US-XG-6POE.

Grounding (Recommended)

The UniFi Switch is grounded through the Power Adapter; however, you can add optional ESD grounding for enhanced ESD protection.Note: You also have the option to use the Cable Clip to secure the cord of the Power Adapter. For instructions, proceed to “Using the Cable Clip (Optional)”.

Using the Cable Clip (Optional)





Connecting Power

You have two options:

  • “Using the Power Adapter”
  • “Using the DC Input (Optional)”

Using the Power Adapter



Using the DC Input (Optional)

For stand-alone power or redundant backup, connect a DC power source to the UniFi Switch.Note: Only one power source can be used at any one time. With both power sources connected, the input with the highest voltage will be used; the other power source defaults to backup.Wire a DC/DC cable (not included) to the DC Input. Ensure the polarity is correct: red is positive (+) and black is negative (-).
