Note.

The PowerChute utility configuring process is given in this document as an example. Alternative software can have different settings. 

Alternative software must allow binding certain reactions with UPS events.

To set up the PowerChute plus utility:

  1. Start the PowerChute plus configuration program, by selecting Start -> Programs -> PowerChute plus -> PowerChute plus.
  2. Select the menu item Configuration -> Event Actions... A dialog box appears, in the left part of which there is a list of events for which different reactions can be assigned (right part of the window). It is recommended to disable the Notify Users option for all events unless there is a need for it; otherwise, messages are sent to the entire domain on which the computer is located.

    A more detailed list of events is given in the table.

PowerChute plus can be configured so that any of the events listed previously can be sent to the Server of Control.

Events marked in green are highly recommended for sending to Server of Control.

The <Intellect installation>\Vhost\UPS\Ext\ folder also includes three executables that have been created for specific events:

  • PowerOff.exe (electricity is off)
  • PowerOn.exe (electricity is restored)
  • BatDisch.exe (battery is discharged)

This minimal set can be used with different series of Back-UPS that do not support calling third-party subprograms from from the command line.
