       newapc - Driver for American Power Conversion Smart Protocol UPS equipment

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

       newapc should recognize all recent APC models that use a  serial  protocol  at  2400  bps.
       This  is primarily the Smart-UPS, Matrix-UPS and Back-UPS Pro lines.  Older APC models may
       work better with the apcsmart driver.

       The driver attempts to support every bell and whistle  of  the  APC  reporting  interface,
       whether or not this is strictly sensible.

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

       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:


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

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

	      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.

       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.
