Connecting the serial communications port
CAUTION: Use only the computer interface cable
supplied with the UPS to connect the communications port
to the host computer.
IMPORTANT: Power protector software requires the
communications port to be appropriately cabled to the
host computer.
Connecting the USB communications port
NOTE: Wire the connector block using stranded,
nonshielded wire (AWG #22 - #18, or equivalent).
Separate wire pairs are attached to a single, normally-open contact in
a parallel connection. HP recommends using different colors for the
positive and negative wires.
If a connector becomes disconnected and is reconnected with reversed
polarity, a REPO is initiated. To avoid REPO port disconnect:
•
Minimize wire strain while connecting the REPO port.
•
Avoid allowing the wires to hang in the rear of the UPS.
•
Use tie wraps and tie wrap blocks to secure the wires tightly to the
rack and the rear of the UPS.
