ManageUPS Net Adapter +B P-Series

ManageUPS Net Adapter +B P-Series

The ManageUPS NET Adapter series provides an open approach to management of network power. ManageUPS +B simplifies integration of POWERVAR UPS systems with Building Monitoring and Automation Systems via MODBUS RTU, MODBUS/TCP protocols. Ethernet services include DHCP client and WEB server for easy configuration and MODBUS/TCP server for easy migration from MODBUS RTU to MOBUS/TCP. Selectable serial settings allow direct connection to RS232/422/485 networks without additional media converters.

  • Features +


    On-Board support for MODBUS/TCP over Ethernet -- future proof migration to BMS using industrial Ethernet.

    Full Range Serial Network Support for MODBUS RTU and JBUS
    Configurable Serial Communications configurable for various; RS232, RS422, RS485 full/half duplex -- eliminates expensive RS232 to RS485 media converters.

    User-select termination -- connect ManageUPS to the middle or end of an existing MODBUS network.

    Dual Network - Concurrent Services
    Allows participation in MODBUS serial and MODBUS/TCP networks simultaneously. SNMP and full WEB services also operate concurrently in P Series models. View UPS system status in real time via WEB browser or BMS.

    Easy MODBUS JBUS Configuration
    WEB server interface for configuring serial port baud rate, device ID, offset, character timeout etc. or ethernet settings -- eliminates need for serial ports and terminal emulation software during on-site configuration.

    ManageUPS accepts network parameters automatically via DHCP (RFC2131). In LANs without DHCP servers, ManageUPS negotiates a "link-local" address.

    Use ManageUPS DCU (Discover and Configuration Utility for Windows) to automatically discover ManageUPS adapters on your LAN or ethernet crossover cable -- or, search for them on your WAN -- and quickly navigate to view status or change key settings.

    Change network parameters to fixed IP settings if your network policy prefers manual IP administration.

    On Board Help and Diagnostics
    Help file "?" links on all WEB pages explain parameter definition and configuration settings -- including downloadable MODBUS Register map.

    Diagnostics window allows view of serial communications traffic through the WEB Browser interface to simplify troubleshooting on new or complex serial networks.

    Unified Register Map
    All models of UPS in the POWERVAR portfolio are represented from a unified register map -- simplifies BMS software configuration in projects involving multiple UPS of different power ranges and model families.

    Web server can be disabled or secured with username and password access control. Web server uses basic HTTP authentication.

    Allows firmware or configuration files to be updated over the network for simple maintenance. Using ManageUPS DCU for simplified updating and version management.

    New Features with P Series AMB

    DHCP Network Configuration
    Supports automatic configuration of IP settings using the DHCP protocol. DHCP server must be located on the same local network as the ManageUPS .

    Multiple Networked Access Methods
    Site power and UPS status information can be accessed securely from any computer on your network. View UPS system status in real time for situational decision support. Access via Telnet, SNMP, or Web Browser.

    Network Shutdown
    ManageUPSNetwork Shutdown Controller calls shutdown of computers runningMopUPS NSA (Network Shutdown Agent)or RCCMD. Multiple schedules allow for graceful load shedding during extended outages to preserve battery autonomy for the most critical loads.

    ManageUPSUPS Status Server allows computers runningMopUPS Professional orMopUPS Special Edition for Parallel or Redundant Systems to share UPS status information. This allows server group administrators to tailor their own automated power-fail- response scenarios.

    Both methods can be used simultaneously, and in various combinations to allow complete flexibility in tailoring sophisticated power-fail-response plans for a wide range of operating systems.

    Event and Data Logging
    On-board "flash drive" holds log files of UPS events, system events, & UPS data. WEB interface allows convenient log viewing utility and quick-link download button. Log files can also be retrieved via FTP.

    Event Messaging
    UPS events can trigger SNMP trap and/or e-mail event messages. E-mail message options include long, short and short-no-subject format options for easy forwarding via SMS or wireless handheld devices.

    SNMP Agents
    Embedded SNMP Agent conforms to SNMP RFC's -- RFC1213 (MIB II) and RFC1628 (Standard UPS MIB).

    Simplified Network Configuration via DHCP and ManageUPS DCU.
    Deploy-first, configure remotely -- or configure first, then deploy.
    You choose what works best for your situation.

    No need for cumbersome serial port setup and text menu configuration via terminal emulators in a staging area. UseManageUPS DCU(Discover and Configuration Utility) to automatically discover ManageUPS adapters on your LAN -- or search for them on your WAN -- and quickly navigate to key settings WEB pages. Change network parameters to fixed IP settings if your network policy prefers manual IP administration.

    ManageUPS accepts network parameters automatically via DHCP (RFC2131 & RFC2136 for DDNS).
    In LANs without DHCP servers, ManageUPS negotiates a "link-local" address.

    Environment Sensor - Optional*
    Measures ambient temperature and relative humidity (RH), reads three (3) volt-free relay input contacts and controls one (1) output relay for event response. Add additional sensor modules to monitor multiple zones from one UPS network adapter. Flexible "Any or All" logic lets you pick multiple event triggers to drive the output relay control.

    *Environment sensor measures and alarms are only available via WEB or SNMP -- not included in MODBUS map.

  • Requirements +

    • Network connection is 10/100 Base-T Ethernet - Ethernet Class 1 (DIX) packet format 802.3u Compliant - Compatible w/FastEthernet full/half duplex

    • Web interface requires a W3C standards compliant web browser

    • Automatic network configuration requires a DHCP Server

    • E-mail requires SMTP Server

    • SNMP trap requires SNMP trap receiver

    • Log functions work best with access to NTP (network time) server

    ManageUPS Net Adapter should be kept up to date to ensure you have the latest drivers for your UPS type and current features. Installation instructions are included with the ZIP file you will download. Be sure to read the instructions prior to updating your adapter. If you have any problems be sure to use our Help Desk for support information.

    Check if you have the latest firmware already installed on your card by going to the Administration > About ManageUPS page on your web interface. The currently installed firmware level and operating system level will be listed there.
