How To Remotely Monitor A UPS System
There are two ways in which you can monitor your UPS remotely. One option is to install a wall mounted Remote Panel (MultiPanel) that connects to the UPS to a serial port on the UPS and offers the advantage of full digital metering (available for all UPS models - 400 m cable max and required 240 Vac UPS backed mains supply). The panel incorporate a multi function audible alarm with mute facilities and lamp test.
The alternative option is to utilise the computer network with our NetMAN network adaptors to provide full UPS status and measurement values via a web-browser with facilities to send alarms using email, SMS messaging, SNMP traps or directly to an existing BMS system. This device can also offer temperature monitoring and unattended server shutdown when combined with optional modules.
