Contacts
View the state of input and output contacts
Path: Main > Configure Unit > Discrete I/O
Each cooling unit supports a user-defined input contact and a user-defined output contact. Each contact
monitors a sensor and responds to changes in the state of the sensor (open or closed).
Input State. Indicates the actual state of the input contact (Open or Closed). A cooling unit is On when
the state is normal and in Standby when the state is not normal.
Output State. Indicates the actual state of the output contact (Open or Closed). An alarm will cause the
output contact to change from the normal state.
OHE Input State. Indicates the actual state of the input contact (Open or Closed) for the Outdoor Heat
Exchanger.
Edit the normal state of input and output contacts
Path: Main > Configure Unit > Discrete I/O > Normal State
The input contacts can be set to cause alarm conditions based on user-defined normal state. Output
contacts can map internal alarms and events to outside devices.
Input Norm. Set the normal state of the contact (Open or Closed). The cooling unit changes its
operating mode to Closed when the actual state differs from the normal state.
Output Norm. Set the normal state of the contact (Open or Closed). If the state of an alarm or event
mapped to this contact changes from the normal state, the contact also changes state.
Outpt Src. Define the type of output source (alarm), either Any Alrm or Critical, that causes the output
to change from its normal state.
OHE In Norm. Set the normal state of the contact (Open or Closed) for the Outdoor Heat Exchanger.

Cooling Group Configuration
Use the cooling group configuration settings to add cooling units to the group and to define group
operation. The system automatically assigns the state of Backup to units in the group. A unit whose Role
Override setting is set to ON will automatically be set as a Primary cooling unit. A unit in the Standby
or Failed state is not considered a potential backup unit. The system periodically reviews the state of the
units to maintain the proper number of ON and Backup units. If no units are available to assign to the
Backup role, then the No Backup Units Available alarm is initiated.
Caution: This procedure is to be performed by APC authorized personnel only. The settings
in the Configure Group menu are defined by APC authorized personnel when the cooling
group is commissioned.
Configure the cooling group
Path: Main > Configure Group
The Configure Group menu contains settings that identify the number of cooling units installed in this
cooling group and the physical arrangement of those cooling units.
Num Units. Enter the number of cooling units in this cooling group. Up to 12 cooling units can be
joined together to work as a single cooling group.
Type. Set the rack deployment strategy for the cooling units of this cooling group
• Spot: The cooling unit is used as a stand-alone unit.
• In-Row: Air flow is not ducted. Hot-aisle air is cooled and the cooled-air supply is shared by all
loads in the row.
• RACS (Rack Air Containment System): Air flow in the enclosure is controlled by a ducting
system fitted to the enclosure.
• HACS (Hot Aisle Containment System): Air flow in the room is controlled by enclosing the hot
air aisle. The loads share an enclosed common hot aisle.
Capacity Ctrl. Set the capacity control of the cooling unit:
• Disc (Discrete): The cooling unit operates as a room air conditioner. The evaporator fan speed will
remain constant at the user setting and the compressor will cycle on and off to maintain the cool
setpoint.
Note: The Disc mode is only available in a Spot cooling configuration.
• Prop (Proportional): The cooling unit matches the cooling output to the load demand. This is
accomplished using hot gas adjustment and fan speed control. Load demand is determined by the
cool setpoint and the temperature sensor at the rear of the cooling unit (in Spot configurations) or
the temperature sensor at the front of the load rack (in In-Row and RACS configurations).
Fan Cntrl. This selection allows air flow to be controlled automatically by the cooling unit or manually
by user-selected fan speed preference. This property only applies to Spot (Proportional), InRow, RACS
and HACS deployments.
• Auto: Air flow is automatically controlled by the unit.
• Manual: the air flow is fixed to the value of the Fan Speed Preference property. See page 15 for
more information.
InRow RD Fluid Cooled Operation and Maintenance
13
Availability. Redundancy (Backup Units), Runtime Balancing and Load Assist modes are only
supported in Spot, HACS and RACS configurations.
• Backup Units: The display will show the range of units assigned to the backup function, for
example: 1 - X. The cooling unit is not running but is ready to run if a unit fails, is unable to cool
or needs cooling assistance.
• Load Asst (Load Assist): Enabled/Disabled. The unit was previously in the Backup mode but is
now running due to a request for cooling assistance. When the assistance is no longer needed, the
unit will return to the Backup state. If a failure occurs on a cooling unit while the backup unit is
assisting, the backup unit will take over for the failed cooling unit.
• Runtm Bal (Runtime Balancing): Enabled/Disabled. The system will maintain similar runtimes
between units in the group. When the difference between the runtime hours of the cooling units in
the system exceeds 72 hours, the system will automatically exchange modes between the longest
running Primary cooling unit and the Backup with the least Runtime hours.
Note: The Runtime Balancing cap is not adjustable.
Runtime hours are hours that the cooling unit is actually
operating and NOT 72 consecutive hours (3 days) of time.
Identify the cooling unit
Path: Main > Set Identification
The Set Identification menu contains settings that identify the name and location of the cooling unit.
Name. Assign a Name of up to 40 alpha-numeric characters to this cooling unit.

InRow RD Fluid Cooled Operation and Maintenance
Control the Environment
The primary function of the cooling unit is to capture the heat generated by IT equipment and neutralize
it before it mixes with the room. The control strategies employed by the cooling unit depend upon the
deployment strategy of the cooling group.
In an in-row environment, the cooling unit supplies constant-temperature supply air to the common cold
aisle. The fan speed is modulated to ensure that the required volume of air reaches the IT equipment. The
fan speed is determined by the difference between the cooling setpoint and the maximum rack air inlet
temperature of the cooling group.
In a HACS or RACS environment, the cooling unit neutralizes the heat accumulated in the common hot
aisle and expels it into the surrounding environmental space while maintaining the necessary
temperature difference across the IT equipment.
In a Spot cooling environment, the equipment operates like traditional CRAC equipment, providing a
constant return air temperature. In Discrete mode, the fans operate at a user-selectable speed (Fan Speed
Preference) and the compressor operates at maximum capacity. In Prop (Proportional) mode, the fans
are modulated to maintain the required return air temperature and the compressor output is modulated to
maintain the necessary supply air temperature.
Setpoints
Path: Main > Set Group Setpoint
A setpoint is the target value that a cooling group will maintain. The default setpoints are appropriate for
most cooling applications.
The setpoints for each mode must be within the following ranges:
• Cool: 18.0 – 32.2°C (64.4 – 90°F))
• Deadband: 0 – 10.1°F
• Supply Air: 13.8 – 21.0°C (57 – 69.8°F) Spot (Proportional) only
15 – 21.0°C (59 – 69.8°F) HACS, RACS or InRow
Note: The Supply Air setting is defined by APC authorized personnel only when the
cooling group is commissioned.
Note: The Supply Air setpoint must never be set higher than the Cool setpoint.
• Fan Speed: When the unit is programmed for HACS or RACS mode, this property specifies the
necessary temperature difference (DT) across the IT equipment. When the cooling unit is
programmed for Spot (Proportional), InRow, HACS or RACS with the Fan Control property set
to Manual, this property defines the fan speed. When the cooling unit is programmed for Spot
(Discrete), the fan speeds are also selected from the following table but the Fan Control property
is irrelevant.
– Low: 16.7°C (30°F) DT (60% of maximum fan speed)
– Med-Low: 13.9°C (25°F) DT (70% of maximum fan speed)
– Med: 11.1°C (20°F) DT (80% of maximum fan speed)
– Med-High: 6.3°C (15°F) DT (90% of maximum fan speed)
– High: 5.6°C (10°F) DT (100% of maximum fan speed)

PID settings
Path: Main > Set Group PID
The Proportional plus Integral plus Derivative (PID) loop controls the output of the fans.
Caution: This procedure is to be performed by APC authorized personnel only. Improperly
set PID controls could result in equipment damage.
There are two sets of PID coefficients stored in the unit. One set is used when the unit is programmed for
Spot (Proportional) mode and the other set is used when the cooling unit is programmed for InRow
mode. Only one set can be active at a time. The active PID set is determined by the value of the Type and
Capacity Ctrl properties (Path: Main > Configure Group). The active set can be read, written or set to
default.
Gain (P). The proportional multiplier (gain) for this mode or actuator. The proportional multiplier
adjusts for the difference (error) between the measured value and the setpoint.
Rate (I). The integral multiplier (reset rate) for this mode or actuator. The integral multiplier adjusts for
error measurement and the amount of time that the error has existed. The integral multiplier adds to or
subtracts from the output in small increments to correct for the offset error caused by the proportional
contribution.
Deriv (D). The derivative multiplier (derivative) for this mode or actuator. The derivative multiplier
adjusts the output for rapid changes in the error, correcting for the rate of change of the error over time.
Reset to Deflts (InRow or Spot (Proportional) only). The Gain, Rate and Derivative coefficients
return to their default values.

InRow RD Fluid Cooled Operation and Maintenance
Tune the PID loop
A qualified service technician must tune the PID loop to optimize the performance of the cooling group.
Caution: This procedure must be performed by APC authorized personnel only. The PID
loop must be tuned after the equipment in the room is installed and running. The loop should
be tuned periodically to account for changes in the room load.
1. Adjust the integral and derivative constants to zero and the proportional constant to 1.0.
2. Set the temperature setpoint value and start the cooling group.
3. When the temperature reaches a stable value, increase the proportional constant by 0.5. If the
temperature does not respond to this change, adjust the setpoint.
4. Repeat step 3 until the temperature value starts to oscillate and the peak amplitude of the
oscillations is constant.
5. Note the time, in minutes, between the peaks of the oscillations. This is the Ultimate Period, PU.
6. Note the value of the proportional constant. This is the Ultimate Gain, GU.
7. Compute the PID constants using the table below. Use the equations for that control method in
the row to compute the values for each constant.

Network Management Card
Quick Configuration
The cooling unit is shipped with a Network Management Card that enables the cooling unit to be
managed over a network. Configure the Network Management Card to control this cooling unit through
a network.
Overview
You must configure the following TCP/IP settings before the Network Management Card can operate on
a network:
• IP address of the Network Management Card
• Subnet mask
• Default gateway
Caution: Never use the loopback address (127.0.0.1) as the default gateway address
for the Network Management Card. Doing so will disable the card and will require you
to reset TCP/IP settings to their defaults using a local serial login.
Note: If a default gateway is unavailable, use the IP address of a computer that is
located on the same subnet as the Network Management Card and that is usually
running. The Network Management Card uses the default gateway to test the network
when traffic is very light.
See “Watchdog Features” in the “Introduction” of the InRow RD User’s Guide for
more information about the watchdog role of the default gateway.
TCP/IP configuration methods
Use one of the following methods to define the basic TCP/IP settings needed by the Network
Management Card:
• APC Device IP Configuration Wizard (See “APC Device IP Configuration Wizard” on page 28.)
• BOOTP or DHCP server (See “BOOTP & DHCP configuration” on page 28.)
• Local computer (see “Control console” on page 32
• Networked computer (See “Remote access to the control console” on page 31.)
InRow RD Fluid Cooled Operation and Maintenance
27
APC Device IP Configuration Wizard
You can use the APC Device IP Configuration Wizard at a computer running Windows 2000, Windows
Server 2003, or Windows XP to configure a Network Management Card.
Note: Most software firewalls must be temporarily disabled for the Wizard to discover
unconfigured Network Management Cards.
To configure one or more Network Management Cards from a user configuration file, see the
User’s Guide on the Utility CD.
1. Insert the Utility CD into a computer on your network.
2. If autorun is enabled, the user interface of the CD starts when you insert the CD. If autorun is not
enabled, open the file contents.htm on the CD.
3. Select the Device IP Configuration Wizard from the main menu.
4. When the Wizard discovers the unconfigured Network Management Card, follow the on-screen
instructions.
Note: If you leave the Start a Web browser when finished option enabled, you can
use apc for both the user name and password to access the cooling unit through your
browser.
.ini file utility
You can use the .ini file export utility to export .ini file settings from configured Network Management
Cards to one or more unconfigured Network Management Cards. The utility and documentation are
included on the Utility CD.
BOOTP & DHCP configuration
The default TCP/IP configuration setting, BOOTP & DHCP, assumes that a properly configured
BOOTP or DHCP server is available to provide TCP/IP settings to Network Management Cards. The
Network Management Card first attempts to discover a properly configured BOOTP server, and then a
DHCP server. It repeats this pattern until it discovers a BOOTP or DHCP server.
If neither of these servers is available, see “Local access to the control console” on page 30, or
“Remote access to the control console” on page 31 to configure the needed TCP/IP settings.
A user configuration (.ini) file can function as a BOOTP or DHCP boot file. For more
information, see the TCP/IP configuration section of the Network InRow RD User’s Guide,
available from the Utility CD or the APC Web site, www.apc.com.
28
InRow RD Fluid Cooled Operation and Maintenance
BOOTP. For the Network Management Card to use a BOOTP server to configure its TCP/IP settings, it
must find a properly configured RFC951-compliant BOOTP server.
1. In the BOOTPTAB file of the BOOTP server, enter the MAC address of the Network
Management Card, the IP addresses of the subnet mask, default gateway, and an optional bootup
file name. For the MAC address, look on the nameplate of the InRow RD or on the Quality
Assurance slip included in the package.
2. When the Network Management Card reboots, the BOOTP server provides it with the TCP/IP
settings.
– If you specified a bootup file name, the Network Management Card attempts to transfer that
file from the BOOTP server using TFTP or FTP. The Network Management Card assumes all
settings specified in the bootup file.
– If you did not specify a bootup file name, you can configure the other settings of the Network
Management Card remotely through its Web interface or control console; user name and
password are both apc, by default.
See your BOOTP server documentation to creat a bootup file.
InRow RD Fluid Cooled Operation and Maintenance
29
DHCP. You can use a RFC2131/RFC2132-compliant DHCP server to configure the TCP/IP settings for
the Network Management Card.
This section summarizes communication between the Network Management Card and a
DHCP server. For more detail about how a DHCP server can configure the network settings
for a Network Management Card, see “DHCP Configuration” in the User’s Guide.
1. A Network Management Card sends out a DHCP request that uses the following to identify itself:
– A Vendor Class Identifier (APC by default)
– A Client Identifier (by default, the MAC address value of the Network Management Card)
– A User Class Identifier (by default, the identification of the application firmware of the
Network Management Card)
2. A properly configured DHCP server responds with a DHCP offer that includes all of the settings
that the Network Management Card needs for network communication. The DHCP offer also
includes the Vendor Specific Information option (DHCP option 43). By default, the Network
Management Card will ignore DHCP offers that do not encapsulate the APC cookie in the Vendor
Specific Information option using the following hexadecimal format:
Option 43 = 01 04 31 41 50 43
where
– the first byte (01) is the code
– the second byte (04) is the length
– the remaining bytes (31 41 50 43) are the APC cookie
See your DHCP server documentation to add code to the Vendor Specific
Information option.
To change the control console DHCP Cookie Is setting, use the Advanced option
in the TCP/IP menu. See “Remote access to the control console” on page 31.
To disable the requirement that a DHCP offer include the APC cookie, use the
DHCP Cookie Is setting in the control console:
Network>TCP/IP>Boot Mode>DHCP only>Advanced>DHCP Cookie Is).
Local access to the control console
You can use a computer connected to the serial port on the front of the Network Management Card to
access the control console.
1. Select a serial port at the local computer, and disable any service that uses that port.
2. Use the configuration cable to connect the selected port to the serial port on the front panel of the
InRow RD. Use either 940-0103, the 6-ft cable that came with your UPS, or AP9804 (990-1524),
the 15-ft cable available from APC.
3. Run a terminal program (such as HyperTerminal) and configure the selected port for 9600 or
19200 bps, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, and no flow control. Save the changes.
4. Press ENTER to display the User Name prompt.
5. Use apc for the user name and password.
See “Control console” on page 32 to finish the configuration.
30
InRow RD Fluid Cooled Operation and Maintenance
Remote access to the control console
From any computer on the same subnet as the Network Management Card, you can use ARP and Ping to
assign an IP address to a Network Management Card, and then use Telnet to access the control console of
that Network Management Card and configure the needed TCP/IP settings.
Note: After the IP address of the Network Management Card is configured, you can use
Telnet without first using ARP and Ping to access that Network Management Card.
1. Use the MAC address for the Network Management Card in the ARP command to define the IP
address. For example, to define an IP address of 156.205.14.141 for a Network Management
Card that has a MAC address of 00 c0 b7 63 9f 67, use one of the following commands:
– Windows command format:
arp -s 156.205.14.141 00-c0-b7-63-9f-67
– LINUX command format:
arp -s 156.205.14.141 00:c0:b7:63:9f:67
Note: Look on the nameplate of the InRow RD for the MAC address. The MAC
address is also available on the display interface at:
Path: Main > Cooling Unit > Network.
2. Use Ping with a size of 113 bytes to assign the IP address defined by the ARP command. For the
IP address defined in step 1, use one of the following Ping commands:
– Windows command format:
ping 156.205.14.141 -l 113
– LINUX command format:
ping 156.205.14.141 -s 113
3. Use Telnet to access the Network Management Card at its newly assigned IP address. For
example:
telnet 156.205.14.141
4. Use apc for both user name and password.
See “Control console” on page 32 to finish the configuration.

InRow RD Fluid Cooled Operation and Maintenance
Access a Configured Network Management Card
Overview
After the Network Management Card is running on your network, you can access the configured
Network Management Card through the following interfaces:
•
•
•
•
•
Web interface (HTTP or HTTPS protocol)
Telnet or Secure SHell (SSH)
SNMP
FTP or Secure CoPy (SCP) to upgrade firmware
Modbus
For more information on the interfaces, see the User’s Guide.
Web interface
Use Microsoft® Internet Explorer® (IE) 5.5 and higher (on Windows® operating systems only), Mozillabased browsers that support Firefox 1.x (on all operating systems), or Netscape® 7.x and higher (on all
operating systems) to access the Web interface of the Network Management Card. Other commonly
available browsers also may work but have not been fully tested by APC.
You can use either of the following protocols when you use the Web interface:
• The HTTP protocol (enabled by default), which provides authentication by user name and
password but no encryption.
• The HTTPS protocol, which provides extra security through Secure Sockets Layer (SSL);
encrypts user names, passwords, and data being transmitted; and authenticates the InRow RD by
means of digital certificates.
To access the Web interface and configure the security of your device on the network:
1. Address the Network Management Card by its IP address or DNS name (if configured).
2. Enter the user name and password (by default, apc and apc for an Administrator).
3. To enable or disable the HTTP or HTTPS protocols, use the Network menu on the
Administration tab, and select the access option under the Web heading on the left navigation
menu.
For more information on selecting and configuring network security, see the Security
Handbook, available on the Utility CD or from the APC Web site, www.apc.com.
Telnet and SSH
You can access the control console through Telnet or Secure SHell (SSH), depending on which is
enabled. Select the Administration tab, the Network option on the top menu bar, and then the access
option under Console on the left navigation menu. By default, Telnet is enabled. Enabling SSH
automatically disables Telnet.
InRow RD Fluid Cooled Operation and Maintenance
33
Telnet for basic access. Telnet provides the basic security of authentication by user name and
password, but not the high-security benefits of encryption. To use Telnet to access a InRow RD’s control
console:
1. At a command prompt, use the following command line, and press ENTER:
telnet address
As address, use the IP address of the Network Management Card or DNS name (if
configured).
2. Enter the user name and password (by default, apc and apc for an Administrator, or device and
apc for a Device User).
SSH for high-security access. If you use the high security of SSL for the Web interface, use Secure
SHell (SSH) for access to the control console. SSH encrypts user names, passwords, and transmitted
data.
The interface, user accounts, and user access rights are the same whether you access the control console
through SSH or Telnet, but to use SSH, you must first configure SSH and have an SSH client program
installed on your computer.
See the User’s Guide for more information on configuring and using SSH.
34
InRow RD Fluid Cooled Operation and Maintenance
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
SNMPv1 only. After you add the PowerNet® MIB to a standard SNMP MIB browser, you can use that
browser to access the Network Management Card. All user names, passwords, and community names for
SNMP are transferred over the network as plain text. The default read community name is public; the
default read/write community name is private.
SNMPv3 only. For SNMP GETs, SETs, and trap receivers, SNMPv3 uses a system of user profiles to
identify users. An SNMPv3 user must have a user profile assigned in the MIB software program to
perform GETs and SETs, browse the MIB, and receive traps. The default settings are no authentication
and no privacy.
Note: To use SNMPv3, you must have a MIB program that supports SNMPv3.
Note: The Network Management Card supports only MD5 authentication and DES
encryption.
SNMPv1 and SNMPv3. To use InfraStruXure Central or InfraStruXure Manager to manage the
Network Management Card on the public network of an InfraStruXure system, you must have SNMPv1
enabled in the unit interface. Read access allows InfraStruXure devices to receive traps from the cooling
unit. Write access is required while you set the InfraStruXure device as a trap receiver.
To enable or disable SNMP access, you must be an Administrator. Select the Administration tab, select
the Network menu on the top menu bar, and use the access option under SNMPv1 or SNMPv3 on the
left navigation menu.
FTP/SCP
You can use FTP (enabled by default) or Secure CoPy (SCP) to transfer downloaded firmware to the
Network Management Card , or to access a copy of the event or data logs of the InRow RD. SCP
provides the higher security of encrypted data transmission and is enabled automatically when you
enable SSH.
To use InfraStruXure Manager to manage the Network Management Card, you must have FTP Server
enabled in the Network Management Card. To enable or disable FTP Server access, you must be an
Administrator. On the Administration tab, select the Network menu on the top menu bar, and use the
FTP server option on the left navigation menu.
In the User’s Guide, see the following sections:
• To transfer firmware, see “File Transfers.”
• To retrieve a copy of the event or data log, see “Use FTP or SCP to retrieve log files.”
Modbus
Modbus lets you view the Network Management Card through the interface of your building
management system. It is read-only.
The Modbus interface supports 2-wire RS-485, plus ground.
Note: Modbus can be configured to run at either 9600 or 19200 bps. It is already configured
for 8 data bits, no parity, and 1 stop bit, which are not changeable.
To access the Modbus register map, go to the APC Web site, www.apc.com.

Recover From a Lost Password
You can use a local computer (a computer that connects to the Network Management Card through the
serial port) to access the control console.
1. Select a serial port at the local computer, and disable any service that uses that port.
2. Connect the provided RS-232 configuration cable to the selected port on the computer and to the
RS-232 console port at the Network Management Card.
3. Run a terminal program (such as HyperTerminal) on your computer and configure the selected
port for 9600 bps, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, and no flow control.
4. Press ENTER, repeatedly if necessary, to display the User Name prompt. If you are unable to
display the User Name prompt, verify the following:
– The serial port is not in use by another application.
– The terminal settings are correct as specified in step 3.
– The correct cable is being used as specified in step 2.
5. Press the Reset switch. The Status LED will flash alternately orange and green. Press the Reset
button a second time immediately while the LED is flashing to reset the user name and password
to their defaults temporarily.
6. Press ENTER as many times as necessary to redisplay the User Name prompt, then use the
default, apc, for the user name and password. (If you take longer than 30 seconds to log on after
the User Name prompt is redisplayed, you must repeat step 5 and log on again.)
7. From the Control Console menu, select System, then User Manager.
8. Select Administrator, and change the User Name and Password settings, both of which are
now defined as apc.
9. Press CTRL+C, log off, reconnect any serial cable you disconnected, and restart any service you
disabled.
