RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for apcsmart (redhat section 8)

APCSMART(8)			     Network UPS Tools (NUT)			      APCSMART(8)

NAME
       apcsmart - Driver for American Power Conversion Smart Protocol UPS equipment

NOTE
       This  man  page only documents the hardware-specific features of the apcsmart driver.  For
       information about the core driver, see nutupsdrv(8).

SUPPORTED HARDWARE
       apcsmart should recognize all APC models that use a serial protocol at 2400 bps.  This  is
       primarily  the  Smart-UPS and Matrix-UPS lines, but some Back-UPS Pro models are also sup-
       ported.

       Some older hardware may only report a handful of variables.  This is usually not a  bug	-
       they just don't support anything else.

CABLING
       This driver expects to see a 940-0024C cable or a clone by default.  You can switch to the
       940-0095B dual-mode cable support with the cable= definition described below.

       If your 940-0024C cable is broken or missing, use this diagram to build a clone:

EXTRA ARGUMENTS
       This driver supports the following optional settings in the ups.conf(5):

       cable=940-0095B
	      Configure the serial port for the APC 940-0095B dual-mode cable.

       sdtype=num
	      Use shutdown type num, according to this table:

	      0: soft shutdown or powerdown, depending on battery status

	      1: soft shutdown followed by powerdown

	      2: instant power off

	      3: power off with grace period

	      Modes 0 and 1 will power up the load when power returns.	Modes 2 and 3  will  keep
	      the load turned off when the power returns.

BUGS
       Some  older  APC  UPS models return bogus data in the status register during a front panel
       test.  This is usually detected and discarded, but some other unexpected values have occa-
       sionally slipped through.
