Installation and user
manual
Overall view
The acquisition card is an optional part of
the MultiSlot module (see the installation
and user manual for the MultiSlot module,
ref. 5102919700).
The card acts as the interface between the
I2C bus of the MultiSlot module and the
supervised UPS (Uninterruptible Power
Supply).
Using the MGE UPS SYSTEMS proprietary
protocol (U-Talk) or the Basic protocol (dry
contacts), it acquires measurements, status
information and alarms from the UPS to
which it is connected and transmits the data
to the I2C bus of the MultiSlot module in
which it is installed.

Installation
The acquisition card may be installed in any
of the four slots in the MultiSlot module. No
particular order is required (see the manual
of the MultiSlot module). Only the DB9 J3
connector on the acquisition card may be
used for connection. Connector J4 is
reserved for future applications.

Operation
When the acquisition card is installed in the
MultiSlot module, the following occurs:
◗ the green light 3 on the acquisition card
flashes once every second during the startup phase,
◗ if communications cards are connected to
the module, the green light 3 flashes more
rapidly and irregularly during initialization of
the dialogue on the I2C bus of the MultiSlot
module,
◗ in U-Talk mode, once dialogue with the
UPS has been initialized, the green light 3
flashes when data is exchanged between
the UPS and the acquisition card,
◗ in Basic mode, the green light 3 flashes
every three seconds.

Troubleshooting
Operating anomalies
Cable replacement
AC-power problem
If the communications cable supplied with
the acquisition card is lost or damaged, a
cable wired as indicated in figure 7 may be
used.
The green light 3 on the acquisition card
remains off:
◗ check the supply of power to the MultiSlot
module,
◗ check that the acquisition card is correctly
installed (fully inserted) in the module,
◗ press the reset button 4 on the
acquisition card.
