  • Remote UPS Status Display

  • Data and Event Logging

Customer application1

Customer Application

  • A Network Administrator, responsible for keeping multiple servers up and running in more than one location, wants to be notified of power problems in the UPS, should they arise and wants to have the ability to solve the problem remotely.

Relay i o card ap9610

Relay I/O Card (AP9610)

  • The Relay I/O card is a UPS accessory for Network Administrators to control and monitor power through a dry-contact interface in rack, computer room, and data center environments.

Features benefits2

Features & Benefits

  • Monitors through a simple, dry-contact interface

  • Four user-definable inputs/actions trigger up to six possible outputs/reactions

  • Remotely startup or stop equipment and reboot hung or unstable devices via dry contact

  • Can wire the UPS to do the following actions:

    • Turn on

    • Turn off

    • Initiate Self-Test

    • Shutdown

Customer application2

Customer Application

  • A Building/Network Administrator currently has a relay signaling management architecture and would like to interface their UPS to a building security system and remotely receive UPS status information without going through a network.

8 port 2 port interface expanders ap9207 ap9607

8-Port/2-Port Interface Expanders (AP9207) & (AP9607)

  • The Interface Expander provides data protection as well as graceful shutdown and reboot for multiple servers on one UPS.

Features benefits3

Features & Benefits

  • Connects multiple servers. Up to 8 (1 Smart Port – 7 Simple) with the 8-Port and up to 3 (1 Smart on UPS – 2 Simple) with the 2-Port SmartSlot Card

  • Delays shutdown of the UPS until all servers have shut down gracefully

  • Can be connected to a modem or terminal for sending and receiving status and control information from the UPS

  • When coupled with PowerChute plus software, one server can monitor the UPS, report power conditions and provide actual UPS data (input voltage, load, battery capacity) through the Smart port.

Customer application3

Customer Application

  • A Network Manager in charge of server rooms wishes to manage multiple OS-independent file and database servers using a single UPS.

Single triple expansion chassis ap9600 ap9604

Single & Triple Expansion Chassis (AP9600) & (AP9604)

  • The Expansion Chassis gives network administrators one, or three additional slots respectively, in Smart-UPS, Matrix-UPS, Symmetra Power Array, and Silcon UPSs to customarily monitor and manage their UPS.

Features benefits4

Features & Benefits


  • Allows the use of multiple SmartSlot cards to create a unique solution for each, individual customer

  • Offers an opportunity for various forms of functionality and manageability of equipment

Customer application4

Customer Application

  • A Facility operator running multiple remote locations which house temperature critical devices, must be notified of any temperature and/or humidity changes, unauthorized entry, pipe bursts, fire, or cut in utility. With the Triple Chassis he can combine a Web/SNMP Card, Out-of-Band Management Card (for redundancy) and an Environmental Monitoring Card to view all of this necessary information.
