How to Wire to the Modbus Interface
To connect to your building management system, use the Modbus RS-485 interface. The Modbus
interface supports 2-wire RS-485, plus ground. In addition, Modbus requires both termination and
polarization resistors at the bus master. Each end of the bus requires a 150-ohm resistor (provided), and
the bus also requires a 400–650-ohm resistor (provided) from D1 to +5 Vdc and from D0 to GND.
Modbus can be configured to communicate at either 9600 or 19200 bps. The default setting is 9600 bps.

Option 43 communicates to the Main Module that a DHCP server is configured to service
APC devices. By default, the DHCP response must contain the APC Cookie for the Main
Module to accept the lease.
Following, in hexadecimal format, is an example of a Vendor Specific Information option that
contains the APC cookie:
Option 43 = 0x01 0x04 0x31 0x41 0x50 0x43
• Boot Mode Transition. Tag 2, Len 1, Data 1/2
Boot Mode Transition enables or disables the Main Module option Remain in DHCP &
BOOTP mode after accepting TCP/IP settings, which is disabled by default.
– A data value of 1 enables the option Remain in DHCP & BOOTP mode after accepting
TCP/IP settings. When the Main Module reboots, it will request its network assignment first
from a BOOTP server and then, if necessary, from a DHCP server.
– A data value of 2 disables the option Remain in DHCP & BOOTP mode after accepting
TCP/IP settings. The TCP/IP Configuration setting switches to DHCP when the Main
Module accepts this DHCP response. Thereafter, whenever the Main Module reboots, it will
request its network assignment from a DHCP server only.
Following, in hexadecimal format, is an example of the Vendor Specific Information option
that contains the APC cookie and the data value to disable the Remain in DHCP & BOOTP
mode after accepting TCP/IP settings:
Option 43 = 0x01 0x04 0x31 0x41 0x50 0x43 0x02 0x01 0x01
How to disable the cookie requirement
1. Access the control console through the serial port on the Rack Monitor 200. (See “How to access
the control console” on page 19.)
2. Follow the menu path Network > TCP/IP > Boot Mode > DHCP only > Advanced > DHCP
Cookie Is > Not required to accept offer.
3. Enter Accept Changes.

Important Information about the Default Gateway
Observe the following when required to enter a default gateway for the Rack Monitor 200. (Refer to
page 14.)
Note: If a default gateway is unavailable, use the IP address of a computer that is located on
the same subnet as the Rack Monitor 200 and that is usually running. The Rack Monitor 200
uses the default gateway to test the network when traffic is very light.
Caution: Do not use the loopback address (127.0.0.1) as the default gateway address for the
Rack Monitor 200. It disables the card and requires you to reset TCP/IP settings to their
defaults using a local serial login.
For information about the role of the watchdog concerning the default gateway, see
“Watchdog Features” in the “Introduction” of the NetBotz Rack Monitor 200 User’s Guide.
For details on how to access the user’s guide, see “Additional Documentation” on page 1.
How to Update the BOOTPTAB File
For the Rack Monitor 200 to automatically find a BOOTP server and acquire its TCP/IP settings, the
network administrator must update the BOOTPTAB file of the BOOTP server with the Rack Monitor
200 MAC address, IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway.
• For the MAC address, look on the bottom of the Rack Monitor 200 or on the Quality Assurance
slip included in the package.
• For the default gateway, see “Important Information about the Default Gateway” on this page.

How to Use ARP, Ping, and Telnet
From any computer on the same network as the Rack Monitor 200, you can use ARP and Ping to assign
an IP address to a Rack Monitor 200, and then use Telnet to access the control console of the Rack
Monitor 200 and configure the remaining TCP/IP settings.
1. To define the IP address, use the MAC address of the Rack Monitor 200 in the ARP command.
For the MAC address, look on the bottom of the Rack Monitor 200 or on the Quality Assurance
slip included in the package.
For example, to define an IP address of 156.205.14.141 for a Rack Monitor 200 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
2. Use Ping with a size of 113 bytes to assign the IP address defined by the ARP command. For
example:
– 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 Rack Monitor 200 at its newly assigned IP address. For example:
telnet 156.205.14.141
4. Use apc for both User Name and Password.
5. See “How to configure TCP/IP settings through the control console” on page 19 to finish the
configuration.

Access the Rack Monitor 200
After the Rack Monitor 200 is running on your network, you can access the following Rack Monitor 200
software user interfaces to finish configuring and to begin monitoring your system:
• Web interface (HTTP or HTTPS protocol)
• Telnet or Secure SHell (SSH)
• SNMP
• Modbus
For more information on the interfaces, see the NetBotz Rack Monitor 200 User’s Guide. For
details on how to access the user’s guide, see “Additional Documentation” on page 1.
Web Interface
Use Microsoft® Internet Explorer® 5.5 and higher (on Windows operating systems only), Mozilla-based
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 Rack Monitor 200. Other commonly available
browsers also may work but have not been fully tested by APC.
When you use the Web browser to configure Rack Monitor 200 options or to view the event and data
logs, you can use either of the following protocols:
• 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 Rack Monitor
200 by means of digital certificates.
To access the Web interface and configure the security of your device on the network:
1. Address the Rack Monitor 200 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. For details on how to access the Security Handbook, see “Additional
Documentation” on page 1.
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.
20
NetBotz Rack Monitor 200 Installation and Quick Configuration Manual
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 the control console of
the Rack Monitor 200:
1. At a command prompt, use the following command line, and press ENTER:
telnet address
As address, use the IP address of the Rack Monitor 200 (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 NetBotz Rack Monitor 200 User’s Guide for more information on configuring and
using SSH. For details on how to access the user’s guide, see “Additional Documentation” on
page 1.
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 Rack Monitor 200. 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. The Rack
Monitor 200 supports only MD5 authentication and DES encryption.
SNMPv1 and SNMPv3. To use InfraStruXure Central or InfraStruXure Manager to manage the Rack
Monitor 200 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 Rack Monitor 200.
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.
NetBotz Rack Monitor 200 Installation and Quick Configuration Manual

Modbus
Modbus lets you view the Rack Monitor 200 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.
See “Additional Documentation” on page 1 for details on accessing the Modbus register map.
How to Recover from a Lost Password
You can use a local computer (a computer that connects to the Rack Monitor 200 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 Rack Monitor 200.
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
