The CS121 family - Introduction
About your CS121
General information
The CS121-series are a group of products designed especially for critical resource
management within technical facilities. The CS121 can act as a UPS (uninterruptible power
supply) manager for all other computers in the network. All of these products share many of
the same basic CS121 features, and some have special components and functions. The
CS121 products are most commonly used for the management of UPS systems, so in this
manual we specially reflect to the usage of such devices with your CS121. All of the basic
features and most of the product specific features and operation are explained in this manual.
This manual is the basis also for other CS121 based products like CS121, CS121BUDGET,
SENSORMANAGER, SM_T_COM, SITEMANAGER, SITEMONITOR, SITESWITCH4 und
RASMANAGER.
Note:
When using the CS121 to act as a UPS (uninterruptible power supply)
manager for other computers in a network it is necessary for those
computers that are being managed by the CS121 to have its own
RCCMD installation. RCCMD is the only possibility for enabling the
communication between the CS121 acting as a UPS-Manager and other
client computers in a network. While it is possible to add the different
computers as clients in the CS121 settings it is only possible for those
computers to act as an RCCMD client when they are running RCCMD.
Each computer running RCCMD must have its own RCCMD license.
This is the only possibility for the CS121 to fulfil its function as a network
UPS (uninterruptible power supply) manager. Setting up the RCCMD
commands is described in depth in the sections 2.3.2 Quickguide to
install an RCCMD-job and 5 Additional Software.
There are several CS121 SNMP-adapters available for different UPS and although they are
mainly made for UPS, the adapters can easily be modified by simply plugging in other products
like the SITESWITCH SS4-AUX, SENSORMANAGER, and Modems in order to add new
features.
There are two basic types of CS121-adapters: external and slot cards. The basic versions for
UPS come without MODBUS-protocol, COM2 for environmental sensors and manageability
and AUX for dry-contacts alarms. For more differences please see section 1.4 Comparison.
There are other external products based on the CS121 such as the RASMANAGER, which is a
CS121 with a built-in modem. Other external devices include the SiteSwitch 4 (for the direct
control over power sockets), the SITEMONITOR 64 (for monitoring up to 64 digital alarms),
and the SITEMANAGER 2 (a device with multiple functions) which are used for handling
facility management purposes that go beyond the UPS systems.
Generally, the SNMP adapter runs an embedded Simple Network Management Protocol
(SNMP) software agent. This agent responds to the SNMP operations “gets” and “sets” and
also forwards “trap-messages” to designated recipients when critical conditions occur to the
UPS - such as low battery status. Additionally, the adapter can send RCCMD signals to client
computers running the Remote Console Command (RCCMD) initiating automatic shutdowns
or other actions in case of an extended powerfail. (The RCCMD client is an extra system
module requiring its own license.)
1.1.2
Functionalities of your CS121
• SNMP Adapter CS121/CS121 Slot: The SNMP adapter is a compact unit requiring minimal
workspace (ca. 28x69x126 mm for the external adapter CS121L). The slot card versions of the
adapter (CS111 and CS121SC) get inserted into the extension slots of UPS models supporting
its card type.
• Serial Port: Two DIP-switches change the adapter's serial port (COM2) to a configuration
port for installation or to a communication port for environmental sensors, modem or other
6
functions. The MODBUS-version uses the COM2 as RS485 and is not available for
configuration. The MODBUS version can be configured only via Webbrowser, Telnet and
Default IP address.
• SNMP-Traps for remote monitoring and pre-alarming: The main function of the SNMPadapter lays in the transmission of alarm conditions of the UPS to the monitoring station
(SNMP traps and RCCMD traps/commands). It also makes UPS data access able for users in
the network upon request. With this function it is possible to retrieve and monitor eg. battery
capacity of an UPS from an SNMP management station. The event settings configuration
menu also allows for SNMP trap testing.
• Remote Control: With this function it is possible to switch the UPS to Bypass (depending on
the model) or start battery tests. This remote command is executed either via the Network
Management Station or the UPS Management Software or any Webbrowser.
• Telnet: Every Adapter maybe reconfigured via the network, using Telnet or http after the
initial configuration of an IP Address for the adapter. Current UPS data can also be shown
using Telnet. Generally we recommend to use the Webinterface since Telnet (and
terminalconfiguration) does only allow to setup a basic configuration of the CS121.
• Works with all major NMS: The SNMP adapter works with most, widely used Network
Management Systems e.g. HP Open View HP UNIX and Microsoft Windows NT, Novell NMS,
Spectrum, Sun NetManager, IBM Net View/600 and others. All SNMP systems which either
allow the compilation of the MIB or already incorporate MIB RFC 1628 for UPS Systems, can
be operated with the Cs121.
• Multiserver shut down via RCCMD/RCCMD2 compatibility: The SNMP adapter CS121 is
able to initiate a network shutdown with any RCCMD modules from the UPS-Management
Software CD. A TCP/IP based RCCMD signal is sent to all RCCMD clients in the network. This
enables the remote shutdown of practically an unlimited number of client computers,
independent of which operating systems the clients are running. RCCMD is an optional part of
the UPS-Management Software. Your UPS dealer is able to provide you with Licensekeys for
the RCCMD. The UPSMAN service of the UPS-Management Software suite is an optional
module and not needed for that basic CS121 operations. We recommend to use the UPSMAN
service only if the UPS is connected via serial or USB cable, if a CS121 is connected only the
UPSMON (optional OEm designed Windows interface) and the Webbrowser are needed.
• RS-232 UPS Protocol Router – Pipe- through: The CS121 (not BUDGET versions) is able
to transfer the UPS RS-232 protocol on COM1 directly to COM2. This allows the use of
additional monitoring software on COM2 while making extra hardware (RS-232 multiplexer) to
multiply the UPS comport unnecessary.
• Logfile: CS121 has an internal logfile synchronized with either a set timeserver in your
network or from timeservers in the internet. This logfile can be accessed through the
Webbrowser, UPSMON, JAVAMON or via FTP. Due to the maximum file size of 250 lines
(depends on Hardware, newer HW131 have 2-3 more space), old entries are deleted
automatically.
• Network settings: The CS121 Models are adjustable to the network environment. An autosensing function 10 or 100Mbit can be activated.
Note:
In large fast networks as is normally the case by CISCO or HP-Procurve
with auto-sensing switches problems can occur during the reboot of the
CS121. If this is the case and switches are being used then the autosensing function might very well be the problem. Because the CS121 is
per default set to auto-sensing (ON), this can lead to the network
devices not being able to harmonise communication rates with one
another. This auto-sensing process can take a long time and is
sometimes never attainable. This taxes the CPU capacities of the
switches and can greatly slow down the network or even lead ultimately
to its failure. In this case a default network speed should be determined
7
and set after which, the CS121 can be changed from AUTO to the given
speed, "100half" for example.
• Email client: The CS121 adapters incorporate a built-in SMTP email-client, which is able to
send emails automatically in the event of an alarm.
• Web server: The CS121 Models contain a web-server, which displays all functions and
settings of the adapter. Non-Windows users may use the JAVAMON as graphically display for
UPS data (The JAVAMON module is not implemented in all versions.). Generally the CS121
Webserver is designed for the use with MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER 6 with Active X
and is recommended as configuration and management interface.
1.2
About the communication with the CS121-Adapter
• MODBUS
Modbus is the de facto standard protocol in industry which is used in the building surveillance
and facility management. All CS121 types include an MODBUS over IP interface and
MODBUS over RS232. The CS121 MODBUS types do not have an RS232 interface at COM2,
here they use an RS485 interface. The CS121 BUDGET series does not support MODBUS.
Please see the appendix where also output and protocol interface are shown.
• SNMP
The SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is the Internet-standard protocol for
managing devices on IP networks and is defined and standardized in Requests for Comments
(RFCs)-specifications. UPS systems are using in generally as Management Information Base
(MIB) the RFC1628-specification which defines UPS-specific devices.
The CS121 also comes with the standard MIB RFC1628. Because of this MIB is already part
of most SNMP software products, it is not required to compile the MIB (Please search the
MIB2 directory tree for a “UPS-MIB”). If you want to include your CS121-adapter to an SNMPManagement station, which does not have the standard MIB RFC1628, you can download the
specific MIB from our website. (http://www.generex.de/e/download/cs12x/download_p.html)
Copy the MIB file to the appropriate MIB-directory of your SNMP-station and compile this file.
In most cases your SNMP already has implemented this MIB and a compilation is only
necessary if you want to read extra information than just UPS (e.g. for SENSORMANAGER,
etc.)
For additional information about MIB and NMS see also the section “UNMS” later on in this
manual.
For the CS121-SNMP MIB Implementation, please refer to the GENEREX download-page
http://www.generex.de/e/download/cs12x/download_p.html
This MIB is specially designed for the CS121 and includes SNMP values for all CS121 optional
products (Temperature, humidity, alarm contacts, etc.) Basicly this RFC1628CS121.MIB is the
original UPS MIB, extended by extra values supported from your CS121.
• TCP
Most common way to communicate with the CS121-adapter is over TCP. CS121 includes
UPSTCP, with gives you a complete interface to integrate the adapter into your network.
1.3
The CS121 Adapter Package
The standard CS121-adapter package contains an SNMP-adapter unit with supporting
hardware and software. (Note, that the Budget-models do not have all features.)
Optional is a mounting kit for wall and DIN Rail mounting.

1 to position ON as soon as you made your basic network setting! After
this, please continue configuring your CS121 in your network. Please
follow up the procedure in chapter 2 Quickstart in this manual.
Additional information for CS121BL/CS121BSC: The BUDGET-versions do not have an
external connection for COM2. This configuration interface has been routed to COM1 (UPS
port).
• (7) Power supply: A power supply adapter (wall socket unit) (DC, 12V) provides power for
the Adapter (external Model CS121L, CS121MOD, CS121BL only).
Note:
If you are using a different power supply unit from the one in the adapter
package, please consider that the polarity is set correctly. The adapter
might be damaged if the wrong polarity is used. The power supply
voltage should be at least 9V, 12 V is recommended.
For the CS121SC models C and the slot card, there are no power supply
units. These units will receive power directly from the UPS device. The
SNMP adapter C and slot card both incorporate a variable 9-36V input.
UPS Interface cable (extern devices only): Please use the manufacturer’s serial port cable that
came with your UPS to connect the UPS with the SNMP-adapter. Please contact your UPS
manufacturer, if you have questions. Only use the original RS-232 UPS cable for
communication, which was provided with the UPS. If your UPS has a contact closure port,
please use the manufacturer’s special cable. Please consult your UPS dealer on information
regarding special cables.
1.6
A typical installation - CS121 in a network environment
A typical installation on the SNMP-adapter monitoring a UPS in an Ethernet network follows in
the illustration below. The SNMP-adapter communicates with the UPS to inform you about
your systems power condition.
12
Figure 3:
1.7
CS121 in a network environment
Connect your CS121 ...
In generally you can choose between 3 ways to configure the CS121-adapter:
• By using the serial port you can make the configuration via a Terminalprogram such as e.g.
Microsoft-HyperTerminal. This configuration-mode allows you to make the fundamental
settings for network connectivity and for defining the event and action-settings.
By using a LAN-connection you can make the configuration via Telnet or Webbrowser:
• The configuration via Telnet supports the same interface as the configuration via
Terminalprogram.
• The configuration via Webbrowser allows you to make all kind of settings and configurations.
If you have any possibility, we recommend you to configure the CS121-adapter via this way.
Note:
1.7.1
External versions: At the CS121BL in configuration-mode a zero-modem
cable (not included) may be connected to COM1. Please use a Terminal
program to configure your CS121 via this connection. Option: At UPS
with a DIP-Switch to configure between the UPS built-in serial port and
outside serial port (e.g. UPS from PHOENIX TEC) you may insert the
CS121BSC into the slot and use the original UPS cable for configuration
via Terminal. We recommend to use the webbrowser as configuration
interface.
... via serial port
The SNMP adapter incorporates two serial ports (not BL and BSC-versions), whereas COM1
(see figure “Connectors of the CS121” above) provides the connection to the UPS and COM2
is used to configure the SNMP-adapter.

At the CS121BSC in configuration mode you can use the original UPS serial cable of the UPS
and the in-built RS232 UPS interface to connect your CS121BSC via a Terminalprogram.
For the CS121BSC exists also the possibility to make the configuration via COM1. Therefore
you have to set DIP-switch 1 in Position OFF and connect to COM1 port to the serial port of
your workstation.
Configuration cable (not CS121BL/BSC):
Your package contains a configuration cable, which connects to the serial port (COM2) of the
SNMP-adapter and the serial port of a PC with terminal software. It is sufficient to use a DumbTerminal or Terminal-Emulationprogram, such as e.g. Microsoft-HyperTerminal. During the
13
configuration of the SNMP adapter please ensure that the DIP switches are in the correct
position. Please also refer to the section 1.5 CS121 overview in this manual.
1.7.2
... via LAN
Connect the CS121 with RJ45 cable (not included) to your LAN.
1.8
Verifying the CS121 connectivity
After the CS121-adapter is connected to the UPS and to the Computer via serial port or via
LAN, please verify the connectivity before you start to configure the CS121. The setup system
can be checked before and after a configuration using the following 3 steps:
• UPS-Status displays (LEDs)
During the boot-procedure, the red LED is on, whereas the green LED is off. (Models with
Hardware Version131 do also indicate uncompressing the firmware files with flashing red LED
lightening) The boot process can take up to 3 minutes. If there is an error, the red LED does
not go out. For more detailed information about the UPS-Status LEDs, please see section 1.5
CS121 overview.
After five to ten seconds after the boot-process, the green LED flashes rapidly; this indicates
that the SNMP-adapter is trying to start the communication. The adapter will indicate its
communication accessibility with random green LED flashes.
• Network status LEDs
The LEDs, integrated into the LAN-Connector (RJ45-), will signal a connection to the network
with green and with yellow network connectivity.
• Ping the SNMP-Adapter
Perform a PING-command from the SNMP-station or from another computer in your network
resp. NMS (Network Management Station).
If you do not get a response, check the SNMP-adapter network connection and IP-address of
the SNMP adapter. The IP-address of the adapter is set to 10.10.10.10 if DIP-switch 1 is in
position OFF (configuration-mode).
Note:
14
The different response rates during the ping process do not correspond
to an error. The adapter does not answer every ping signal at the same
speed, due to different sized UPS protocols. If UPS protocols are of
extensive size a timeout can occur briefly. A permanent timeout however
is an error.
2.
Quickstart
The Quickstart manual gives you a short instruction into the main features and how to make
some basic settings and guides you in connecting the SNMP-adapter to the network and UPS.
Note:
Before you start to configure the CS121 please ensure that your
connections are valid as described in section 1.8 Verifying the CS121
connectivity (Red network-LED off; green network-LED flashing in
intervals). Please take care that your UPS has been correctly installed
before and is running!
There are three methods available for configuring the SNMP-adapter: Telnet, terminal and
HTTP. These methods differ in the type of user interface and in the type of connection to be
used for the configuration. The telnet method shares similarities with both, the terminal and the
HTTP-method. Like the HTTP-method, the telnet method uses a network connection via the
IP-address to establish a communication, but it has the same type of user interface as used in
the terminal-method. The terminal-method requires that the SNMP-adapter be connected via
the serial cable to a host computer. The terminal and telnet methods provide the user with a
text menu indicating per alpha-numeric keys the possibilities for the user to either enter
configuration commands or navigate through the menu levels. The HTTP-method provides the
user with forms in which the system settings are either typed directly into a form or chosen per
drop down menu.
Although, all of the configuration possibilities, Telnet, Terminal and HTTP are generally
available, later in the parts of this manual only the explanation for usage of the HTTP-interface
will be provided. We strongly recommend to use the HTTP interface for configuration and
monitoring.
After you have completed the hardware setup and connected the SNMP-adapter, any of these
three methods can be used to configure the adapter for the network. For this purpose
depending on the configuration method, a communication must be established between the
adapter and user via a serial terminal session or via an established network route in a telnet or
HTTP session. CS121 allows a login only under the username “admin”. Upon entering a
telnet- or terminal-session with the adapter an authorization is required for which the default
password is:
“cs121–snmp”
2.1
Setting up basic network configuration
The minimum requirement to operate the SNMP-adapter is to set the IP address, subnet mask
and the UPS model:
• The DIP-switches of the SNMP-adapter firstly need to be set for the configuration. DIPswitch 1 is switched OFF in the top position as well as DIP switch 2 is switched OFF. Please
note that the DIP switches of the SNMP-slot card adapter are situated on top of the circuit
board and DIP switch 2 remains in the OFF position in configuration as well as in the normal
mode.
Note:
For slot versions you have to insert and remove the device for any
reboot-process. This will not have any effect on your UPS but we
recommend doing such operations only when the UPS is not supplying
any load!
• As soon as the network-LED is flashing, add a TCP/IP route on your computer for IPaddress 10.10.10.10. This is done via a call from your command line e.g. "route add
10.10.10.10 <your computers IP address>“. See also route -? for more help of route syntax.
• Test if you can ping the device now: Enter command „ping 10.10.10.10“ and check if there is
any response. Now you can connect with any Telnet or HTTP-software and continue with the
configuration.
15
2.1.1
Using HTTP/Webbrowser
The entire configuration can be done via Webbrowser. Please use the default IP-address
10.10.10.10 and the TELNET password (default: “cs121-snmp”). The username is always
“admin”.
For the configuration using the webbrowser please observe the following:
We recommend the use of Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.x (or higher) or Mozilla 1.3x. Please
note, that Java scripting has to be activated. Using Internet Explorer, the corresponding
settings have to be made under “Internet options” - “security”.
We also recommend never to use the history function of the browser, as this may lead to
multiple transfer of commands (e.g. delete event jobs) to the adapter.
Upon entering a HTTP-configuration session, the user is required to enter a username,
”admin”, in addition to the password ”cs121-snmp”.
Figure 4:
HTTP - Administrator login
Note:
If the HTTP-method does not seem to be available, check to see
whether or not the red LED UPS Status (see section 1.7 Connect your
CS121 ...) is lit.
Call Configuration, “UPS Model & System” and choose your UPS Model from the drop
down list. Further configurations like Power, baud rate, cable type etc. were made
automatically (ensure your Browser has enabled JavaScript) and do not need to be set. We
strongly recommend to keep the default settings for this UPS unless you have instructions
from the UPS maker.

Using Telnet / MS-HyperTerminal
Building up a connection
Use of Telnet, enter the command: „telnet <IP-Address>“, whereas <IP-Address> is in the
configuration mode set to 10.10.10.10.
Start a Terminalprogram (e.g. MS-HyperTerminal) and ensure that the serial communication
cable for COM2 is connected. To build up the connection, mind the following communication
settings:
Baud rate
Data bits
Parity
Stop Bits
Flow Control
Xon/Xoff
Handshaking
CR/LF

2.1.2.3
UPS Settings
Choose option 4 from the main menu and you enter the menu “UPS Settings”. Within this
menu the user needs to select the UPS model the CS121-adapter is connected to (usually at
COM1).
Figure 10: Telnet - UPS Settings
The CS121-adapter distinguishes here generally between Cable- and Serial-models. With
Cable, the adapter and the contact interface of the UPS are connected with a special cable.
Using Serial, UPS models connect to the adapter via the serial UPS-cable. (Part of the UPS
package). Serial is default, when the user selects a UPS model name from the drop-down list.
When Cable is used, please search the list for the corresponding UPS model and cable type.
The CS-121 supports serial models with its own RS-232 protocol as well as contact UPS
models with the cable types O,C,1-10. Those contact cables are UPS or alarm system specific
and should be provided by the corresponding manufacturer. Our Cable documentation shows
examples of those cables if they are individually made cables.
Please choose the corresponding Serial UPS model or Cable-model communication
parameters. Parameters like baud rate etc. are preset for the corresponding UPS model.
Note:
By selecting the UPS model, the communication protocol is selected at
the same time. If your UPS does not appear in the list, ask your UPS
dealer if another model from the same series can be substituted.
Select Option 1 to get a variety of possible UPS models. After chosen a model, the default
values of the corresponding UPS model can be configured by typing the number of the option
followed by the value.
Note:
Please do not change parameters except of UPS-model unless you want
to choose specified configuration according your UPS-model!
Please note option “D”: “System shutdown (minutes before battery end – downtime)“: This
value determines how many minutes before a complete battery unload the event “System
shutdown” from event menu is executed.
The shutdown time interval needs to be set large enough, so that adequate time for a system
shutdown is allocated before the UPS runs out of power. Please calculate this value
generously e.g. if the battery time of the UPS is 10 minutes and the event procedure takes 2,5
19
minutes, ensure you start (configure) the shutdown (or other event action) 3 minutes before the
UPS is switched off, so that more than enough time is available to complete the corresponding
event action.
2.1.2.4
Save configuration
Call “Save, Exit and Reboot”-command from the main menu. (The communication to the
adapter will be lost).
ATTENTION: Keep the Telnet, Terminal, Webbrowser window open until the device has been
lost or you see a message that reboot is under progress. If you close the configuration window
too early it may corrupt the upsman.cfg configuration file. (see also section 4 Adapter
Software-Updates (Firmware))
Note:
2.2
Various options and settings for UPS-configuration can be done under
Telnet or HyperTerminal, e.g. setting access controls of the SNMPcommunities, set traps, set display settings, etc. However, the
configuration via Webbrowser offers a much more convenient way to
configure the CS121. If you have any possibility we recommend you to
use this way.
Adapter-restart and boot procedure
After you have finished the basic IP- and network-settings you should set DIP-switch 1 in
position ON and restart the adapter with your configurations.
You can perform an adapter restart by unplugging the power supply of the CS121 and wait
until the adapter has restarted with your configurations.
Alternatively you can restart the Adapter with the “Reboot”-Option in the “Save Configuration”menu of the Webbrowser. The following message will displayed:
Figure 11: HTTP – Adapter reboot dialog
A successful restart of the adapter is indicated with the CS121 UPS- and network-LEDs as
described in section 1.7 Connect your CS121 ....
Reconnect your Webbrowser with the adapter using the configured IP-address. (e.g.
http://192.168.10.123)
Your CS121-adapter is now ready for further configurations!
Note:
2.3
If the adapter’s HTTP-service is not available, check to see whether or
not a red Status-LED is lit.
Further, test if you reach the adapter with a ping-command. Enter
command „ping <IP-address>“. If the adapter doesn’t answer to the ping,
check also whether your network routes the IP-address.
Introduction in the event configuration
The configuration of the CS121 is based on events, whereupon an event can be an UPStriggered event such as powerfail, battery low etc., and also events, which are released by the
CS121-adapter, like events from the AUX-port or a connected SENSORMANAGER for
example.
The CS121-configuration allows you to assign one or more actions to each event. An action
can be to send an Email-notification to specific users as well as to perform a shutdown-signal
20
to several client stations. In addition, it is possible to specify when and how often an action is
to be released.
2.3.1
About same basic events
Please call the menu “Events / Alarms” in the Web-browser to open the main configurationsite, whereon all configurable events are listed. In the following, we introduce same basic and
important events which should be in general handled from every CS121-Adapter. For a
complete description in-deep please see section 3 Configuration of the CS121.
• Powerfail
The event “Powerfail” will be released when the UPS has lost the power supply. This event is
usually used to proceed operations like backup-strategies, batch-files to be executed on client
stations etc. pp. You can configure such jobs with the “Remaining time”-parameter to ensure
the actions will be executed completely.
• System shutdown
The event “system shutdown” will be released, if the configurated “System Shutdown Time” (in
the menu “UPS model and system”) is reached. This means, there are yet the configurated
minutes left until the battery’s capacity is expected to be finished (as calculated by the
adapter).
This event should only be used to proceed all operations concerning your forced shutdown
szenarios. Further operations are usually configurated on the event “Powerfail”.
Note:
This EVENT is the final task a CS121 can initiate before the UPS
switches off! DO NOT use this EVENT for triggering shutdowns via
RCCMD etc. because the remaining time in this status is not secure. We
strongly recommend to use the event “Powerfail” and configure the
RCCMD shutdown calls with a UPS “remaining time”, this is the best
way to send RCCMD shutdowns to several IP-addresses in a certain
logic or sequence!
• Battery low
The event “Battery low” will be released from the UPS when the battery charge has reached a
critical state.
• UPSMAN started
The event “UPSMAN started” is periodically released in normal operating mode. You can use
this event to configure jobs, which should be executed as long as the adapter is working in
normal mode.
Note:
2.3.2
Same UPS models allows you to configure the thresholds for releasing
UPS specific events individual. CS121 also supports these features if the
UPS includes this possibility. See also section 3.2.5 Events / Alarms in
this manual.
Quickguide to install an RCCMD-job
Condition for setting-up an RCCMD job in the CS121 configuration (like Shutdown for
example) is the installation of RCCMD at the client workstation.
Note:
Each RCCMD-Installation requires a licence key! Usually, the CS121
Adapter Package includes already one licence key. This license key can
only be used once per installation. If more computers need to be added
to the shutdown process, additional licenses are required.
Please follow the description in section 5.1 RCCMD to install RCCMD at the client-workstation.
After you finished the client-side installation of RCCMD you can configure an RCCMD-job at
the CS121-adapter:
21
For example to configure a job, which initiates a shutdown-signal to a client-workstation,
please enter the event “System shutdown” in the menu “Events / Alarms”. The following “Event
Editor” then lets you add a new job.
Figure 12: HTTP – Job Editor – Introduction
See the figure above, how to configure the RCCMD shutdown for a Client-Workstation. Note,
that you enter the correct IP-Address of the Client.
Now the RCCMD shutdown procedure is already completed. Press the “Test”-Option in the
Event Editor to verify your settings.
22
3.
Configuration of the CS121
Note:
3.1
After you have finished the basic network configuration you should have
set DIP-switch 1 in position ON and rebooted the adapter. At the SC slot
cards you have to remove the card from its slot and change the DIP
Switch 1 to position ON. After this, re-insert the card. Info: There is no
risk to remove/insert the slot card, there will be no effect on the UPS
output.
CS121 Status-Monitors
The Menu “System & Network Status” shows basic information about general configuration
settings:
Figure 13: HTTP - System & Network Status
The Menu “UPS Status” gives information about the actual UPS-data, above all the state of
charge and battery load:
Figure 14: HTTP - UPS Status
The Menu “UPS functions” allows you to perform USV test- and control-scenarios like battery
tests, etc. The UPS functions depend on the UPS type and its functions. Some UPS only allow
a remote on/off, others have more functions.
23
Figure 15: HTTP - UPS Functions
AUX & SensorMan Status:
The AUX & TEMPMAN status shows the actual measurements of the connected
environmental sensor devices SM_T_COM, SENSORMANAGER or TEMPMAN.
Figure 16: HTTP - AUX & SensorMan Status
In the above figure, a button menu is presented in which the ports 1 and 2 can be clicked on
and off. A yellow light bulb indicates that output to the corresponding port is being provided,
while the gray unlit light bulb indicates the status of being switched off in which case the
connected device is not being provided with power. The buttons „Switch Off“ and “Switch On”
are password protected. This is the same password that has been set in the CS121configuration. The ports 3 & 4 are configured as input sensors, here the OFF symbol shows an
open contact, and alarm would show a closed contact. The AUX port of CS121 can be
configured as output or input – or a mixture of both.

3.2.1
Configuration
UPS Model & System
Use this menu to define the communication between the CS121-adapter and your UPS.
24
Figure 17: HTTP - UPS Model & System
With the parameters UPS ID, system-name, -location, -contact you can describe the UPS and
CS121. This is useful e.g. to locate the UPS physically and can be used among others for
event settings.
Note:
Do not change the default UPS-Parameters for Baud Rate and Hold time
unless you have special instructions from the UPS maker.
Please note the field “System Shutdown Time “: This value determines how many minutes
before a complete battery unload the event “System shutdown” from the event menu (please
cp. according section 3.2.5 Events / Alarms) is executed. Attention: This EVENT is the final
task a CS121 can initiate before the UPS switches off ! DO NOT use this Event for triggering
shutdowns via RCCMD etc. because the remaining time in this status is not secure. We
strongly recommend to use the Event Powerfail and configure the RCCMD shutdown calls with
a UPS “remaining time”, this is the best way to send RCCMD shutdowns to several IP
addresses in a certain logic or sequence!
Note:
Please apply your changes before leaving the menu to send the values
to the CS121-adapter - do not forget to press “SAVE & EXIT &
REBOOT” after you have finished your configuration work!
The section „Custom Values“ contains 6 fields with can be used to save custom specific
comments concerning your UPS.
25
3.2.2
Network & Security
Figure 18: HTTP - Network & Security Settings
This menu configures the CS121 network card settings, passwords and enable/disables
several adapter and network services.
Among others, here you can allow the CS121 to act as an RCCMD listener client. This makes
it possible for another UPSMAN-Manager, CS121, SITEMANAGER or other RCCMD
compatible sender to send the adapter an RCCMD command like sending one of the AUX
output ports a high or low signal – or to start other actions.
You can also set the MODBUS configurations in this menu. The configuration requires only the
following entries:
• Enable Modbus over IP: Every CS121 model with Firmware Version 2.0 (or higher) can
also transfer UPS data via the MODBUS-protocol on IP (port 502). You may use any
MODBUS client to read the UPS value from CS121. For using the RS-485 interface, you must
use a CS121MODBUS (special hardware) in other cases you have to use MODBUS-over IP.
This is enabled by default, you may disable this feature via Telnet or HTML-configuration.
• Modbus Slave Address: Enter the corresponding number, meaning which number in the
chain (bus) the adapter is.
• Modbus Mode: RTU (Binary mode) or ASCII mode text output. Please select the type with
the scroll down menu.
Note:
ASCII Mode works with Parameters 7,N,1. The RTU Mode (binary)
works with 8,N,1.
• Change Administrator Password: The password protects against unauthorized usage and
manipulation. The default password is "cs121-snmp". In case you have "forgotten" your
password a master password can be generated using your adapter serial number. Please
contact your manufacturer for more information.
• Change UPSMON & SS4 Password: This is a separate password and allows to open UPS
FUNCTIONS and SS4 FUNCTIONS only to specific users. With this password the user may
switch on/off the UPS, start battery tests, switch SS4 outputs, but can not change any other
setting on the CS121 configuration.
26
The UPSMON password blocks entry to the UPSMON tools battery test and emergency shut
down. Knowledge of this password enable users to gain access to these security relevant
functions.
3.2.3
Email
If you wish to define actions to send Emails depending on specified events you need to
configure the Email settings.
Figure 19: HTTP - Email Settings
In this menu the internet name of your SMTP mail client is required. If DNS is not configured,
the actual mail server name’s IP-address has to be entered. Please also note that the sender
account name (e.g. ups@mailserver.de) should not be a random name since some
Emailservers do not allow this. We recommend to use an existing account e.g.
ups@mailserver.de. Most servers require matching account name and mail server names. E.g.
someone@somewhere.com would be correct, whereas just “someone” would not be sufficient.
If the server name and account name do not match, the following error message will be
displayed in the CS121 alarm logfile (after some minutes): “Mail: bad answer from mail server:
501 UPSIP204@wrong server.com sender domain must exist.”
The user can check the logfile if the email transfer works. The logfile (text.log under the
adapter’s root directory ../Flash/text.log) can be viewed using FTP, via the UPSMON tool or via
the Webbrowser “Alarm log”.
Mailservers outside the LAN require a username and password. For this function please use
“email authentication” and enter a username and the corresponding email password (twice).
Note: Do not use email authorization if this is not required by your mailserver !
If authorization is required, the email function “AUTH LOGIN” (the CS121 adapter supports
only this function) needs to be supported. (e.g. Freemail.de). This changes the protocol from
SMTP to ESMTP and a password is required.
The length of the password should be a minimum 3 and a maximum of 63 characters.
Send a test-mail to validate your settings after you have applied the mail-settings. A short
message on the menu indicates whether the test-mail could be sent or not.
Note:
Please ensure that you have specified a DNS-server in menu “Network
& Security” if the mail-server could not be reached.
27
3.2.4
Timeserver
The CS121 uses a timeserver to supply the correct date and time of any event in its local
logfile. If no Timeserver is set, the CS121 will not use date and time in the logfile, but a date
stamp of 1970. For the normal operation of the CS121 a timeserver is not required, but we
strongly recommend to set access to a timeserver.
Figure 20: HTTP - Timeserver Settings
The timeserver is important to synchronize the UPS logfile to the actual time. The adapter
supports up to three different timeserver IP-addresses. Both, RFC868- and SNTP- protocols
are available. Enter the IP-address of any timeserver in your LAN or in the internet. In the
internet you will find many timeservers supporting RFC 868 TCP requests, e.g. the IP-address
of the timeserver of the National Institute of Standards and Technology is 129.6.15.29; the
timeserver of the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt is 192.53.103.103.
Note:
The timeserver will synchronize immediately following the reboot
(featured with Firmware 3.03 and newer). If the synchronisation fails, the
CS121 will attempt another timeserver synchronisation. Following that,
the CS121 will attempt a synchronisation with the timeserver every 24
hours.
Every Windows computer offers the by “Windows Time” a timeserver which synchronizes the
time of the PC with an internet clock. How to setup the MS-Timeservice is described below.
If you do not have any internet access in your network, you may setup a timeserver which use
the PC clock. For this you may choose any freeware from the internet or download from here:
http://www.generex.de/wwwfiles/timeserver/atcs22.zip
• Test Timeserver connection: This option is testing the Timeserver connection with a time and
date stamp. Please note that the connection to the timeserver only works, when the adapter is
not in the configuration mode (IP 10.10.10.10). The CS121 should have a timeserver to
synchronize the UPS alarms with your local time. Without a timeserver the CS121 would use a
default time from 1970.
• Microsoft Windows SNTP Timeserver: As timeserver you can use any e.g. Windows PC in
your network which has access to a timeserver in the internet or a local PC clock. To use the
Microsoft Windows timeserver you have to configure and start the “Windows Time Server”
service – see screenshot in the service list:
28
Figure 21: MS-Timeservices
To turn your Windows computer into a timeserver, double-click on the clock in the lower right
taskbar and open the following example. After some seconds the tab “Internet Time” appears.
Click on “Internet Time” and check if the timeserver you have chosen here works correctly.
After having configured and started your Microsoft Windows Timeserver you have to reboot
your computer and check the Event Logfile of Windows to ensure, the service was started
correctly. In this case, you can configure your CS121 Timeserver using the IP-address of this
Windows computer.
Note:
3.2.5
Please check if your computer is reachable through the network. You
may have to change the Windows Firewall settings.
Events / Alarms
The Event/Alarm-pages are the main feature of the CS121-configuration and are based on a
combination of events and actions (resp. Jobs). At CS121 there are various events defined,
such as e.g. “Powerfail”, “UPS Battery bad”, “Battery low” etc. Each event the CS121-adapter
allows you to release one or more actions. An action can be e.g. to write a logfile-entry in the
alarm-logfile (as default all events do perform an logfile-event), to send an eMail or to perform
an RCCMD-Command (e.g. shutdown signals to several RCCMD Clients). For a short
introduction into the handling of Events and Actions see also the section “Quickstart”.
In this menu the relationships between system events such as alarms and the actions to be
taken those events are defined.
To configure your events and actions open the menu “Events / Alarms”. The menu “Event
Configuration” shows you an overview about the events and the number of configured actions.
29
Figure 22: HTTP - Event Configuration with tool tip
Choose the event you wish to configure to enter the event editor.
Figure 23: HTTP - Event Editor
The Event Editor allows you to edit, delete and test existing events, as well as to add a new
event job. Please click on the desired action to enter the Job Editor, who lets you make the
configuration.
Here in the following a short example how to configure an RCCMD-Shutdown signal. For
further explanations please see section 3.2.5.4 RCCMD Jobs later on in this manual.
• Generally, the event “Powerfail” (in same environments also named “Backup mode”) should
be used to enter the RCCMD-Shutdown commands, where required with a delay (“do after”) or
depending on the remaining time.
Figure 24: HTTP – Event Editor, Example of a Shutdown-Configuration
• Additionally, all Actions of the Event “Powerfail” should also be entered in the Event “Battery
low” whithout any delay.
• The Event Editor offers you 3 commands on each Job: Edit, Delete and Test. (See figure
above) Please note: the Test will perform the execution actually, which means for exeample,
that testing a RCCMD-Shutdown Job will actually relealse the Shutdown-Signal at the Clientside! You should perform a Shutdown-test not until you have switched off the Shutdownprocedure at the Client. (RCCMD Configuration, Button Configure shutdown)
• All Jobs are saved not until you executed the Save, Exit and Reboot-Procedure, not until the
device is restarted and running in normal mode (DIP-Switch 1 is ON).
• The number of jobs per event ist limited. CS121 Series 2001-2006 allow up to 25 jobs,
running under Firmware 3.5x even up to 35 jobs (approximatley, depends on the jobs). If more
jobs should be executed, you have to configure RCCMD as relay-station, as described in
section 5.1.2.

3.2.5.1
Treshold events
Some UPS models allow you to configure thresholds for releasing UPS specific threshold
events individually. CS121 also supports these features if the UPS includes this option. In this
case, you see at the main Event menu “Event configuration” at the bottom an additional link
“Configure threshold events”. Click here to add a new individual threshold event and you enter
the configuration page “Threshold Events”, within you get the possibilities to configure
individual events.
Figure 25: HTTP – Treshold event
3.2.5.2
Logfile entries
For a numerous of events logfile-entries are already pre-configured as default. To configure a
new logfile-entry, type in the field “Text” the desired message you wish to enter in the logfile
and choose the option on the right side, when/how often the message should appear in the
logfile.
Figure 26: HTTP - Job Editor: Logfile-entry
Example above: The text “Powerfail” will written into the logfile every 100 seconds for as long
as the event is present. Other actions on events such as Email, RCCMD-shutdown, UPSDialer, TempMan etc. can be configured in the same way. Each event may have an unlimited
number of actions (executed now, delayed etc.).
Note:
Do not forget to apply your changes before leaving the menu to send the
values to the CS121-adapter!
The CS121-logfile is located in the adapter root directory “../flash” The user can read the
Alarmlog-file using a FTP connection with the default IP address 10.10.10.10 or the configured
IP-address and the username/password combination “admin/cs121-snmp”. Alternatively the
logfiles can also be watched with the GENEREX monitor-tools UPSMON or JAVAMON resp.
via the Webbrowser. About the logfiles-contents please see also section 3.3 Reading the
Alarm-Logfile.

3.2.5.3
Email-Job
Figure 27: HTTP - Job Editor: Email-Job
To configure an Email-job follow the entries in the figure above.
Note:
Please ensure that your Email settings in the menu “Email” are valid.
(See also section “Email” above)
Besides text entries, variables can also be integrated into the email from the CS121-adapter.
This may personalize your emails. A list of available variables are documentated in the
appendix (Section E Available Variables of the CS121). Please mind, that the variables are
only getting filled if the event actually occures, not by testing the action. (So simulation is not
possible, you have to create a real alarm to see the full message)
For example please see the figure above: There, the variables #MODEL and
#AUTONOMTIME will be substituted with their current values when the action will be released.
Please notice the syntax, that each variable name must be started with the character # and
must be ended with a <space> character.
Apply your settings and test the Email-job in the “Event Editor” to ensure Email will be
sent.
• Continuous, periodic events:
To define an event job which will be executed continuous, e.g. daily, create a job on the event
„UPSMAN started“, as in the following figure:
Figure 28: HTTP - Job Editor: Continuous event job
3.2.5.4
RCCMD Jobs
RCCMD (Remote Console Command) is the world’s most successful shutdown client for
heterogeneous networks and is the most secure way to establish a UPS multiple server
shutdown sequence today. RCCMD clients are listening to an RCCMD server which is usually
an UPSMAN software, CS121 or any third-party UPS manager which has a license to use
RCCMD. An RCCMD server is found inside any CS121 and is triggering RCCMD clients in
case of alarms. Therefore RCCMD requires such listeners on each client-computer you wish to
forward RCCMD signals. For installation of RCCMD at client-side please see the section in
chapter “Add-on software”.
32
Note:
RCCMD clients are optional and not freeware. Most CS121 are
equipped today with a single RCCMD standard license, some UPS
makers add more licenses, other do not deliver any license at all with a
CS121. Contact your UPS maker and ask for the license regulations for
RCCMD in conjunction with your CS121.
• Certain pre-settings are imperative for all RCCMD actions.
- First of all in general regards to the CS121-adapter as an UPSMON Server, the „Enable
UpsMon Server“ and the „Use RCCMD2 Traps“ controls boxes must be checked in menu
“Network & Security Settings”. (default is ON) This enables the CS121 to execute its RCCMD
actions.
- Secondly, the CS121 adapter and the RCCMD client must both be appropriately configured
in order to reach one another using RCCMD commands over the network.
• Because the CS121 adapter plays an active roll when executing its actions “Message”,
“Shutdown” and “Command” (that is to say the CS121 -adapter sends an RCCMD-signal to an
RCCMD client), it is necessary, to enter the IP-address in parameter 1, and the port number of
the RCCMD client in parameter 2 (default port is 6003). Additionally, the RCCMD client must
either be pre-configured with absolutely no sender filter or should be pre-configured with the
IP-addresses of the particular UPSMAN servers (like UPSMAN, CS121 or other RCCMD
compatible sender) that are to function as recognized senders. These configurations take
place when installing the RCCMD client service. Further details are in the RCCMD software
documentation.
• RCCMD also includes the feature “RCCMD Trap”. RCCMD Trap is a method for sending
information to the RCCMD stations which have been applied to the CS121. RCCMD Traps
invokes messages at all RCCMD stations. Because of RCCMD plays an active roll in this
mode no receiver information is to be entered in the parameters of this job (see also following
sections). It is condition to enable the RCCMD Trap control box in the menu “Network &
Security Settings”.
• The CS121-adapter uses the parameter-based RCCMD Version 2, which can execute
different actions on the same TCP channel. RCCMD Version 1 clients can only execute one
action (shutdown file execution as default, so any RCCMD signal which is transmitted to an
RCCMD client V1 will cause a shutdown of this server ) RCCMD Version 3 is capable to
handle also redundant UPS installations (eg. PC with 2 power supplies and 2 UPS).
Note:
For all 3 RCCMD event functions a list of the user configured RCCMD
receivers appear in every RCCMD event.
• The maximum number of RCCMD clients is unlimited. However it is only possible to execute
50 clients at the same time, meaning that the first 50 RCCMD clients are executed followed by
the next 50 etc. We recommend to change the timing parmeters of the RCCMD-jobs that
always less than 50 commands are transmitted at the same time. We also recommend to use
an RCCMD client as Relaystation if you want to shutdown more than 50 computers from a
single CS121. (see section 5.1.2 RCCMD client as relay station)
Note:
The RCCMD timeout is 60 seconds, meaning that after this time the
communication to the RCCMD client will be stopped and a logfile entry
will be made. When an OK response from the client is received, the
system assumes a successful RCCMD Shutdown and proceeds with a
shutdown of the next 50 RCCMD clients. Every minute one batch of up
to 50 RCCMD clients can be executed.
License regulations:
Please note that in order to use these functions legally, the corresponding RCCMD client
program is installed and started from the UPS-Management Software CD. The RCCMD
license code can only be used once per installation. If more computers need to be added to
the shutdown process, additional RCCMD client licenses are required.
33
Note:
3.2.5.4.1
All network components, such as routers, hubs etc. need to be fully
UPS-supported, as it is otherwise not possible to reach all clients during
the network shutdown.
RCCMD Shutdown
Figure 29: HTTP - Job Editor: RCCMD Shutdown
Here, IP-addresses from computers with RCCMD connection (receivers) in the network can be
entered. The CS121-adapter can then initiate a multi-server shutdown. The timing for such a
shut down procedure depends on the configured down time of the adapter (default: time of the
remaining capacity of battery in min., during a long power fail.) or on a count down timer.
Extended CS121-adapters can also use more events (e.g. battery low, battery defect,
communication lost etc.) as RCCMD signals. Please contact your UPS dealer for more
information.
Note:
3.2.5.4.2
For security reasons we recommend to make the same RCCMD
shutdown entries for the Event “Battery low” - but in this Event without
any delays to avoid that the server crashes because of low battery
alarm.
In case a connection is established using telnet or http, the RCCMDcommand can be tested without using disrupting power to the UPS. At
the Webbrowser you simply have to press “test” to transmit the
shutdown signal immediately. (see figure HTTP - Event Editor above)
Due to network settings it is possible that this test is answered with
"failed". The signal is often sent and received although the receiver may
not respond correctly. In such cases, only use the receiver side to check
if the signal has actually been received. For checking the communication
between RCCMDs you have to check the RCCMDlogfile on both sides.
In the CS121 the logs are inside the Alarmlog, at the RCCMD client side
the logs are found inside the RCCMD folder eg. Rccmd.log.
RCCMD Message
With this job the user can combine and configure a text message with RCCMD event. Text
messages can be sent to RCCMD receivers. This makes it possible to send text messages via
RCCMD (version 2 or higher) to a Windows 2000 server or a Unix computer, using the “NET
SEND” or the respective “WALL” method. The problem with notifying network users on
different operating systems is therefore solved.
Note:
34
The corresponding RCCMD clients must be running with RCCMD
version 2. RCCMD version 1 can only execute e.g. a shutdown as more
than one action are not supported by version 1. Please contact your
UPS dealer if you want to use these functions.
3.2.5.4.3
RCCMD Execute/command
This RCCMD signal will cause any RCCMD receiver (e.g. another CS121, RCCMD client or
SITEMANAGER, SITESWITCH4) to execute a command or program.
Figure 30: HTTP - Job Editor: RCCMD execute/command
Any CS121, SITEMANAGER, SITESWITCH can also act as an RCCMD listener; see the
following examples:
3.2.5.4.4
Example of use 1: CS121-adapter as RCCMD-listener
If it is necessary to execute a command with parameters or a user defined script then these
commands must be prepared as an executable batch on the RCCMD client.
The following example toggles the state of AUX output port 2 to high. To ensure that the above
command works with a CS121 as RCCMD client the following four criteria must be met:
• Enable RCCMD Listener and set RCCMD Listener Port in menu “Network & Security”.
• Add IP of UPSMAN sender in the SNMP community of the CS121-RCCMD client (see also
section “SNMP”)
• Target AUX port must be set to "use as Output" (menu AUX, see according section)
• The send RCCMD Command must match the settings of the CS121 RCCMD listener client.
See the UPSMAN User Manual for setting up this job on a computer running UPS
Management Software.
3.2.5.4.5
Example of use 2: CS121-adapter switches an output
CS121 receives an extern RCCMD signal to switch an output at the SS4 (Power switch) which
is connected to the AUX of a CS121.
If you want to send from a CS121, UPSMAN, SITEMANAGER, SITEMONITOR, SITESWITCH
4 or any other RCCMD sender a signal to any other RCCMD client e.g. to switch at its AUX
port an output, please follow the example below.
Note:
To let the receiver act as RCCMD listener, same basic settings in menu
“Network & Security” are necessary: Please ensure that the option
“RCCMD Listener” is enabled and the RCCMD Listener port is specified.
(Usually the listener port is 6002)
Figure 31: HTTP – Enable RCCMD Listener
Generally there are 3 commands which can be transmitted from any RCCMD Sender:
Switch Output (AUX): Syntax „|UPSCMD|20000|x,y“
where “x” is the port number from 1-8 (4 ports for CS121 AUX, SENSORMANAGER and
SITESWITCH and there are 8 ports for the SITEMANAGER)
35
y=1 => switch on
y=0 => switch off
“20000” is the command to switch outputs. (for other commands please contact GENEREX
support)
Syntax examples:
|UPSCMD|20000|1,1
|UPSCMD|20000|1,0
|UPSCMD|20000|2,1
|UPSCMD|20000|8,0
=
=
=
=
Output 1 on
Output 1 off
Output 2 on
Output 8 off
Figure 32: HTTP - Job Editor: RCCMD-Command
• Confirm a digital alarm : You can also use this syntax to e.g. confirm alarms for digital
inputs (e.g. Fire-alarm, door open, air-condition failed, etc.) which you see in the UNMS
software as “New Alarm”. E.g. if your UNMS software shows an active alarm and you want to
“acknowledge” this alarm by a switch witch you connected to a CS121 or SITEMANAGER,
than you can use the following syntax to program your device to send an “ACK” signal to the
receiver. After this your UNMS will show “Alarm acknowledged – recovery action in progress”.
Syntax : |UPSCMD|20001|x
where x is the Portnr. (1-8). („20001“ is the ACK command for digital signals)
Syntax example: |UPSCMD|20001|2
This command confirms the Digital-Alarm 2 on a SITEMANAGER, SITEMONITOR,
SITESWITCH or CS121 AUX Inputs.
• Confirm Analog-Alarm : The way it works with the ACK of analog alarms like Temperature
thresholds exceed on the UNMS.
Syntax : |UPSCMD|20002|x
where x is the Portnr. (1-8). („20002“ is the ACK command for for analog signals)
Syntax example: |UPSCMD|20001|4
This command confirms the Analog-Alarm 4 on a SITEMANAGER, SITEMONITOR,
SITESWITCH or CS121 AUX Inputs.
3.2.5.4.6
RCCMD Trap
RCCMD Trap is the automatic messaging system of CS121, working with RCCMD clients. If
jobs have been configured in this category, the actions that are set here will be executed only
when an RCCMD client has established a connection to the UPSMON server of the CS121.
36
Figure 33: HTTP - Job Editor: RCCMD-Trap
3.2.5.5
UPS shutdown
This event action enables an UPS shutdown. It is possible to configure when to send a
shutdown signal to the UPS in case of an e.g. battery low, firealarm or if a complete power
down is wanted. Attention: This command will cut off the power supply – only for UPS which
support this function!
Figure 34: HTTP - Job Editor: Shutdown UPS-Job
The example above configures that 60 seconds after the event powerfail has occurred, the
UPS is initiating a shutdown and the UPS waits another 120 seconds after the event powerfail
is gone (power restored), before the UPS start up is initiated.
3.2.5.6
AUX-Port
Figure 35: HTTP - Job Editor: Switch AUX-Port
In general, the AUX port is used for auxiliary contacts that can be configured to function as
either an Input or an Output. (e.g. as input for Air-conditioning alarm contacts and as Output to
switch on electrical sockets or start Beepers etc. ) When these contacts are set as Inputs, they
are to be treated as an event in the „Events settings“-menu. Reverse, the AUX contacts to be
treated as actions when they are being used as Outputs. The AUX port is also used for
connecting an SS4/AUX power outlet manager, in which case all AUX ports function as
Outputs. For the AUX we provide several “add-ons” like the SS4AUX, SM_IO Relaybox,
SM_BUZZ Alarmbeeper, etc. For a complete overview of “add-ons” for the AUX please see the
according datasheet, downloadable from www.generex.de.
37
3.2.5.7
Wake on LAN (WOL)
Figure 36: HTTP - Job Editor: Wake on LAN
WOL stands for “Wake on LAN”. This function uses data packages to prompt other computers
in a local network to start-up. Please use this function in the event “UPSMAN started” to wake
up computers which have been shutdowned previously after an extended poweroutage, which
cause the CS121 or UPS to switch off completey. Additional you may add this WOL signal to
the EVENT “Power restored”.
Note:
3.2.6
Not all network cards support this function, and for those network cards
that do, some of them are password protected. Please enable this
function on your computers BIOS settings on the motherboard.
Scheduled Actions
This menu is for programming schedules actions on your CS121 or facility manager
SITEMANAGER. When combined with the other facility managing functions of the CS121
adapter, the Scheduled actions tool can be used to operate and run many different tasks, e.g.
Swich on/off UPS, do battery tests, switch to “greenmode” or bypass, etc.
Figure 37: HTTP - Scheduled Actions with warning
After pressing the “new”-button a configuration window will be opened for the making of new
entries into the scheduled events of the adapter. This is a very dynamic and versatile
configuration window that automatically readjusts itself to adapt to the selected job. Just select
a different type of Action and see how the configuration window changes. This makes it very
easy for the user to configure the individual jobs. In addition, the window makes the scheduling
of reoccurring events very easy by offering the selection of ONCE, DAILY, WEEKLY, and
MONTHLY for each new entry.
Note:
3.2.7
Please ensure that timeserver settings are valid when you configure
scheduled actions. An unreachable timeservice will be indicated at the
top of the menu “Scheduled Actions”.
SNMP
Within this menu you can define access controls for SNMP-communities. This concern e.g.
SNMP-Management tools, Trap receivers etc.
38
Figure 38: HTTP - SNMP
• Network Server Settings
The user may activate or deactivate different options from this menu. Telnet and or SNMP may
be switched on or off and the UPSMON access can be blocked. The network speed can also
be selected and the user can select and adjust the desired security level.
Note:
Please ensure that in the menu “Network & Security” the option “SNMP
Agent” is enabled. SNMP Traps have nothing to do with RCCMD traps
or the RCCMD shutdown functions. RCCMD works independent from
SNMP.
The submenu displays a column of 10 manager IP-addresses with the corresponding access
permission, the commands and an example. Use this screen to specify which managers have
access to the SNMP adapter agent, the community names (password) and also what type of
access the IP managers have - read only or read and write.
• Configuring Trap-receivers
Use this to determine which IP managers receive traps (messages) from your SNMP-adapter.
The screen permits you to send traps about your UPS to IP-addresses (managers).
Also, the menu for switching authentication and cold boot traps are located here. If activated
these traps are send to the configured SNMP trap receivers in the trap receiver list.
• SNMP Trap Test
In this menu the user may test the SNMP traps, whereas the defined traps are only used for
test purposes and do not represent real traps. The receiver must also be configured in order to
make this test work. Additionally, save the settings and reboot your CS121 before testing the
communication with the configured IP-address. (does not work in configuration mode)
See also Network & Security-Settings
3.2.8
3.2.8.1
COM2 & AUX
COM2
This menu takes the user into the submenus for the general settings of the COM2 and AUX
connection ports of the CS121-adapter.
39
Figure 39: HTTP - COM2 Mode overview
• Configuration Mode:
This sets the normal configuration mode for using the provided cable (CS121-TEMP
configuration cable).
Note:
Unless DIP-switch 1 is OFF the COM2 port is always running in
configuration mode.
• Pipe-Through Mode 1:
Enable or disable the “pipe-through” of the adapter. If enabled, the RS-232 protocol of the UPS
will be transmitted to the COM2 of the adapter, so now you can connect any other RS-232
software to the adapter to make use of the RS-232 UPS protocol – parallel to the adapter. This
makes the use of multiplexer hardware is no longer necessary. 2 serial interfaces on your UPS
which are working parallel are utilized now. Reminder: If you have enabled this function, you
can no longer configure the adapter via the serial cable, you must changed the settings via
HTTP. As communication cable between CS121 and your application you have to use the
original CS121 configuration cable.
• Pipe-Through Mode 2:
Analog to Pipe-through mode 1, the UPS data is piped through to COM2 but not directly. In
order to accelerate the internal processes of the adapter, the UPS data is accumulated into
memory before being made available to COM2. Consequently, Pipe-through mode 2 also does
not provide for the relaying of signals to the UPS through COM2 either. (See also section
“Network & Security Settings”)
• TEMPMAN & SENSORMANAGER:
40
Figure 40: HTTP - COM2 & AUX with TEMPMAN
The TEMPMAN and SENSORMANAGER are extensions to the CS121 that connect to COM2
of the adapter. The newer of the two products is the SensorManager. These devices are
simply plugged into the CS121 for setup and the only mandatory change on the adapter to
enable this functioning is to set the COM2 Settings to either TEMPMAN or SENSORMAN. The
configuration is easily achieved via the HTML page of the CS121 web server. Please note the
drop-down menu and entry fields on the page. (see screenshot above) For in-depth
SENSORMANAGER settings see following up chapter.
• RAS-Mode
The selection of the “RAS”-entry in the drop down menu of the COM2 settings enables the
CS121-RASManager function. This function is only operational if a RASMANAGER ist used
(CS121 with inbuilt modem) and a RASMANAGER license key is provided (optional, part of
RASMANAGER). While it is also possible to select this entry in the Telnet menu, it is only
possible to configure the RASMANAGER settings using the HTTP interface of the CS121. See
menu “RAS Configuration” for further settings.
3.2.8.2
AUX and SITESWITCH4 Settings
The AUX connection is an input/output port for connecting external contact devices such as
alarms or for connecting to an SS4AUX SiteSwitch power socket manager. The SS4
SiteSwitch is a standalone device with a built in CS121. The SiteSwitch SS4 AUX is an
inexpensive and practical extension to the CS121 adapters enabling the individual power
switching of up to four power sockets – using the inbuilt AUX port (4 pins) of the CS121. By
entering the corresponding list number, the AUX ports are switched to output or input.
The AUX port can only read signals, if the port is switched to input. If switched to output the
AUX port can send signals to an optocoupler for example. (Refer to the circuit diagrams in the
appendix.) After a reboot, the state of the switches remains in the status previous to the
reboot.
The following describes the configuration of the AUX ports using the HTML interface. All of the
AUX ports 1 – 4 can be manually set to „Output“ so that in the event of an alarm, the CS121
can be preconfigured in the “Events” menu to switch the ports individually. When all ports are
41
set to “Output”, this is equivalent to activating the „SS4 Mode“. The SS4 mode is to be
activated when connecting a SITESWITCH4 to the AUX port of the CS121.
When the Output options are deactivated, the AUX ports act as inputs used for monitoring
signals such as input from alarm contacts. For example, while configuring port 2 as an input to
monitor an alarm, the CS121 can also be preconfigured to respond to the alarm signal from
port 2 to shut on or off a device connected to one of the other ports that has been set to
Output.
For example see also the settings in figure “HTTP - COM2 & AUX” above.
The OUTPUT setting is to be configured with a power-up sequence so that, for example the
fileserver on port 1 will be switched on upon Power up. In the Power up delay-fields the
number of seconds after a Power up in which a connected port device is to be switched on can
be entered. E.g. the setting 10 in the Power delay column will cause the switching on of the
fileserver on Port 1 to be delayed by 10 seconds after the Power up. Note that executing the
Save, Exit & Reboot does not cause a Power up, in order to cause a Power up the power
supply to the adapter must be interrupted. The differences between a Reboot and a Power up
become more noticeable when considering the AUX port contacts. During a Reboot the current
status of the ports remain unchanged unless the settings of the ports have been changed from
input to output or vice versa. A Power up will set the ports to the preconfigured Power up
settings.
3.2.9
SENSORMANAGER
The SENSORMANAGER is a data measurement and collecting unit which allows the
individual measurement and monitoring of 8 analog measurement devices (0-10V) and 4
digital alarm inputs or 4 outputs (open collectors). SENSORMANAGER has its own chapter in
the manual, wherein the features and field of applications etc. pp. are described as well as in
depth the various specific configurations.
In generally, the SENSORMANAGER unit is connected with its COM 1 port to CS121’s COM 2
port, which has to be configurated as SensorManager mode (see also section COM 2 settings
above).
Within the configuration page “Sensor Manager Settings” of the CS121 you can - among
others - define limit values when events (to be configurated in “Events / Alarms”) will be
released.
42
Figure 41: HTTP – Sensor Manager Settings
Please see SensorMan in section “Accessories” of this manual.
3.2.10
RAS Configuration
This is the standard setting for the RASManager, the CS121 with the built-in modem. Most of
the CS121 products can also have the RASManager feature enabled by purchasing PPP
License Key and by connecting a supported modem. The RASManager and RASControl
software come with an extra user manual for describing this feature.
Figure 42: HTTP - RAS Manager Settings
43
3.2.11
Save Configuration / Reboot
If you are satisfied with your configuration select “Save, Exit & Reboot” and wait until the
adapter informs you about the reboot-process.
Please notice that a reboot of the CS121 may take up to 3 minutes. During the boot phase the
CS121 is compiling the user settings and waits for timeserver response. As soon as the startup process is through and all requested data are present or „timed-out“, the UPS
communication starts and the green LED is flashing to signalize the UPS RS-232 traffic. Now
the device is ready for use and you may check the UPS values with any Web browser
(http:://<IP address>) or SNMP software - or you may connect with Datawatch Pro-tools, such
as UPSMON, UNMS, USW or JAVAMON. When connecting with UPSMON or UNMS, TCP/IP
can be selected instead of SNMP. This is faster and contains more UPS values than an SNMP
communication.
3.3
Reading the Alarm-Logfile
The CS121-Alarmlog contains the alarm protocol of events that were designated as alarms in
the Event/Settings-section and include the user defined alarm settings of the CS121
configuration as well as the events that are designated as alarms in the UPS native protocol.
These entries include such things as CS121 Admin defined email notifications which lead to a
much higher alarm entry log level than would otherwise be the case if only UPS protocol
defined alarms were being recorded. For explanation, the following illustrates typical log file
entries made by the UPS:
The CS121 logs the time after a new start up:
01/17/2007,16:21:45, Synchronized with timeserver 192.53.103.103. OK
This indicates a successful synchronization with the timeserver.
01/17/2007,16:23:39, UPSMAN <UPS model> has started
UPS communication functions and device is in normal operation mode. This is the standard
entry after every successful reboot of a CS121.
(The following entries result only from user defined settings as with the CS121
ADMINSTRATOR EMAIL Settings.)
01/17/2007,16:28:39, MAIL: subject "CS121 Event 4" successfully sent.
All “EVENT X” designated alarms are viewable in the EVENT list of the web browser. EVENT 4
for this particular UPS is the EVENT "UPSMAN started" – This means that an Email was sent
with the text "UPSMAN started" which acts to confirm the log entry of 08:06:50 as Email.
01/17/2007,16:28:47, MAIL: subject "CS121 Event 16" successfully sent
In this case, the Scheduler has been activated and is ready for operations. In this case, the
scheduler is set to conduct a "Selftest" which it in turn relays per email to the designated
CS121 ADMIN.
01/17/2007,16:28:47,MAIL: subject "CS121 Event 26" successfully sent
01/17/2007,16:29:03,MAIL: subject "CS121 Event 27" successfully sent
01/17/2007,16:29:28,MAIL: subject "CS121 Event 28" successfully sent
01/17/2007,16:30:46,MAIL: subject "CS121 Event 29" successfully sent
These are 4 Emails indicating the status of the AUX Ports (Auxiliary connection for external
alarms), which are set to give notification of the status signal LOW. Since the AUX Status can
only be set to High or Low and given that the CS121 in itself cannot distinguish the device, an
alarm email will be sent by the CS121 to the designated ADMIN at startup per default with the
startup status of each connected alarm. In this case, it is up to the administrator to determine if
the emails indicate an actual alarm or not.

Adapter Software-Updates (Firmware)
Usually the CS121-Adapter already contains a specified firmware-version and does not need
to be updated unless you have problems or you find a update recommendation on our website.
(use firmware online update link on CS121 page).
If you have connected your CS121 via LAN a link at the Webbrowser configuration page
(CS121 Firmware Update) indicates you with red or green coloured information whether you
should perform a Firmware-Update or not.
Figure 43: HTTP - Firmware Update Page
Note:
We strongly recommend to update any firmware lower than 2.69 to the
actual version!
All actual Firmware-updates are provided at www.generex.de download page.
Note:
Any interruption of a firmware upload may damage your adapter. If this is
the case, you have to reformat the adapter with special software See
section “Firmware Recovery”. or contact your UPS software support for
more information.
The boot procedure of the CS121-adapter performs several steps:
• First, the firmware is going to be uncompressed.
• Starting firmware
• Control process called UPSMAN is going to be started and USV connection is trying to
established
• Services e.g. Webserver etc. started
There are two ways to update your firmware-version, by using the Setup-tool or via FTP.
4.1
Firmwareupdate via Setup-tool
Firmware updates are available for free at www.generex.de. Download the specified version
(mind your OEM ID) and follow up the setup-procedure. If necessary, consult your UPS dealer
for further information.
4.2
Firmwareupdate via FTP
A firmware update can be made via FTP during normal operation of the CS121-Adapter
(username: “admin”, password: “cs121-snmp”). Simply overwrite the older firmware files,
PROJECT.HEX, UPSTYP.UPS and MESSAGES.DAT in the FILES folder with the newer files
and reboot the adapter. Afterwards, reconfigure the device via Telnet. For more details read
the README.TXT of the firmware update package.
Note:
46
The configuration of the CS121 can be saved for archiving purposes
using an ftp-connection. Simply download the „upsman.cfg“ to the
directory of your choice. Later on, after the CS121 has been updated,
the configuration can be saved back into the „flash“ directory of the
CS121 per ftp.
Figure 44: CS121-configuration settings via ftp.
A firmware-update via FTP changes not only the operating system part of the CS121, if you
want to change also UPS manufacturers data you have to overwrite also the file
UPSTYP.UPS. Please contact your UPS software support for further information.
4.3
Firmware flash renewal and recovery
Caution: This upgrade process requires some technical knowledge. This process
can seriously damage your CS121 if not performed correctly. Please
follow the instructions carefully to avoid damaging your system! We
strongly recommend to use the CS121 update tool to avoid conflicts and
to safely update your CS121.
General information regarding the upgrading process of the CS121 - Known Problems
and Preliminary Precautions:
• Any update will cause a deletion of all former settings. The adapter must be reconfigured
after the update. The current settings information can be saved by using an FTP connection to
your adapter to save the upsman.cfg file in the flash directory to a local directory. This file
contains all of the information about the current CS121 settings in a formatted text. Do not
copy this file back onto the adapter after the update as a replacement for the new upsman.cfg.
The information must be entered back into the settings using the adapters configuration
interface. Note that the http interface often contains newer settings options that are not yet
implemented in the telnet and terminal interfaces.
• Any recovery should be made on the default IP Address 10.10.10.10. Put DIP Switch 1 and
2 in the OFF position before starting.
• Please avoid the use of routers and switches between your computer and the CS121, if
available use Hub (recommended) or a direct line (Ethernet-cross-cable).
Instructions for recovery procedure:
In case the CS121 is not running, has any defect or other problem, please put dip switch 1 to
OFF (Dip 2 should be always OFF) and follow the procedure below:
1. Before starting the update, unplug the adapter from the power supply (slot cards have to be
removed from the slot).
2. Set a route to default IP-Address. Command syntax on your windows computer: "route add
10.10.10.10 <your IP address>". Also note that the flash tool can also be used to set the route
for you by checking the set route check box in the update interface.
47
3. Check if your route is correctly set with the console command "route print". You should see
that 10.10.10.10 is in the list.
4. Make sure that no other device is answering on "ping 10.10.10.10". If you get any answer
then you have to disable this device first before you can continue.
5. As an extra notice, the update interface displays an stereo button with the text "Format &
Rewrite" to show that all settings will be lost.
6. Press the "Start Update" button and re-power the CS121 in THE EXACT SAME MOMENT!
If the start was successful, you will see that the firmware is loading. DO NOT INTERRUPT
THIS PROCESS! Pay attention to the process. If during the loading the following text
reappears in the dialogue:
"Connecting to target 10.10.10.10 on port 4000....."
then shortly disrupt the power supply to the adapter in order to initiate the communication call
between the updating computer and the adapter once again. The process should then flow
through all the way to the following text: "update successful".
Attention: It is important to start the update and the adapter at the same time
because even with a defect firmware installation, there is a window of 1
second during the start of a cold boot in which the CS121 will answer IP
calls to 10.10.10.10. When the firmware update tool gets a connection
during this time, the recovery process can start. If you get a timeout,
retry this procedure.
7. After the firmware has been loaded, you can reboot the adapter and configure the system
with HTTP (resp. TELNET), still using IP address 10.10.10.10.
4.4
Changing the Adapter’s MAC-Address
• The MAC-Adress of the CS121 can be changed in 4 steps:
1. Connect your CS121 to the network again, after you successfully flashed the device with
new firmware.
2. To connect to the CS121 please enter from a Windows Commandline : "hymon.exe <ip
adress of your CS121> 4000"
Example: "hymon 10.10.10.10 4000"
You may alternativly open the batchfile "login_HynetOS.bat" and simply change the IP adress.
(NOTE: The usage of Hymon requires a JAVA Runtime version 1.3 or higher.)
3. Now you should be connected to your CS121 at the login prompt.
c:\CS121\CS121_Mac_Adresse>hymon 192.168.202.123 4000
Connecting to target 192.168.202.123...ok.
192.168.202.123:/>
4. Enter in the prompt the command: "set MAC <GENEREX MAC Identifier>" <ENTER>
Finish. After this you can enter exit and reboot your CS121.
• GENEREX MAC Identifier - Address code:
The GENEREX MAC address range is :
Model CS121 Hardware 131, Typ L,SC,Modbus Version 2005:
00-03-05-0E-XX-XX
Model CS121 Hardware 121, Typ L,SC,Modbus Version 2005:
00-03-05-02-XX-XX
Model CS121 Hardware 131, Typ BSC,BL:
00-03-05-0F-XX-XX
Model CS121 Hardware 121, Typ BSC,BL:
00-03-05-02-XX-XX
48
BACS, SiteMonitor, SiteManager:
00-03-05-0A-xx-xx
where XX-XX represents the HEX code of the GENEREX CS121 Board’s serialnumber
(decimal).
• How to find the CS121 board serialnumber:
Note:
This is not the serial number of the CS121 itself, its the serial number of
the CS121. Motherboard. At a CS121 Slot this number is found as a
white lable on the board, the text of this lable maybe like this: "SN:B (or
C)-xxxxx QC:Passed". The number after SN:B (or C) is the
motherboards serialnumber. (If you can not find the label on the
motherboard, please contact your USV manufacturer.)
At CS121 external units you have to open the chassis to see this label.
Example 1 : If youre lable is : "SN:B-40985", than the correct command to set the MAC adress
for your CS121 is: "set MAC 00-03-05-02-A0-19".
[Alternativly you may use the CS121 Product serial number (e.g. 0123-11328) instead:
Example 2 : If youre Product serial number is : "0123-11328", than the correct command to set
the MAC adress for your CS121 is: "set MAC 00-03-05-02-2C-40"]

Additional Software
RCCMD
RCCMD is the client module for integrating an unlimited number of computers of any operating
system into an UPSMAN managed UPS facility. The main purpose is to transmit shutdown
signal or messages to RCCMD clients in other networks or on other OS.
Figure 45: RCCMD - Overview
From the UPS Management Software Suite (optional UPS software product) you may use the
module for multi server shutdown “RCCMD” (separate client license required) to shutdown
another networking computer, unregarded which OS. (for a complete list of RCCMD supported
OS please see the documentation-page of www.generex.de.
Please note that you need for every computer to receive an RCCMD shutdown call another,
separate license! If you need to shutdown several 100 of computers in your LAN or WAN
within the same company or organization, you may ask your UPS reseller for an “enterprise
license” which allows the usage of a single license key for all your computers (optional).
Additionally, RCCMD can send messages and execute other programs on remote computer
via the CS121 SNMP adapter. In general, the jobs can be broadcasted and relayed from a
machine within its own segment. Depending on the network configuration and the number of
RCCMD licenses, an unlimited number of Computers/Servers can be shutdown. Contact your
UPS dealer to purchase RCCMD software.
5.1.1
Installation
Please start the installation of the RCCMD-client with the download of the latest version from
www.generex.de. (If included, use also the CD from the adapter package) Uncompress the
files, execute setup.exe and a wizard guides you through the installation. (Note: Some older
versions (using InstallShield5) sometimes stop the installation process with a window, which
shows you a completion of 99%. In this case, download the latest RCCMD-Version from the
www.generex.de download-page and continue.)
After you entered the Licence-Key a window to configure the IP-address appears. Add the IPaddress from the adapter(s), of which the client has to receive RCCND-signals.
50
Figure 46: RCCMD Client Installation – IP-Address
The following window gives you the possibility to enable a periodical connection check and to
attach a batch-file to be executed in the case of a failure.
Figure 47: RCCMD Client Installation – Connection check
With the following window you complete the installation by attaching batch-files to each action
the RCCMD-client can receive from the CS121-adapter. Usually, you do not need to edit the
default-values, because the installation already includes the batch-files as default. Just edit the
batch-file, if you want to add or change an action to be executed.
51
Figure 48: RCCMD Client Installation – Batch-files
5.1.2
RCCMD client as relay station
In order to reach a bigger number of RCCMD receivers, the adapter needs to be operated as
relay station. The receiver will be configured so that it will receive a RCCMD signal and this
signal is then used to start a batch file, which then starts even more RCCMD sender signals.
This computer is then sender and receiver at the same time and is therefore an important link
in the UPS monitoring chain. Generally the use of an RCCMD client as relay stations makes
the management of several 100 RCCMD clients far easier than configuring this via the
Webbrowser interface of the CS121. Additionally, all Webrowser Event configurations have a
certain limitation so that you have to use the relay function if the number of jobs exceed e.g. 50
per event at the CS121 HW 131, at older CS121s even earlier.
See the following script, which lets the RCCMD-client act as relay station:
Figure 49: Example: Batch file to let the RCCMD act as relay station
5.1.3
License regulations
Please note that in order to use these functions legally, the corresponding RCCMD program is
installed and started from the UPS-Management Software CD resp. see www.generex.dedownload page for the latest version. (see above) The license code can only be used once
per installation. If more computers need to be added to the shutdown process, additional
licenses are required. The CS121-adapter package does usually contain a single licenses for
RCCMD to shutdown 1 computer. For more computers to shutdown you have to order
separate RCCMD client licenses. Generally the CS121 has an unlimited capacity to shutdown
RCCMD clients, but if you have to enter more than 30-50 RCCMD clients via the Webbrowser
interface it may make sense to use RCCMD relays (see above).
5.2
gChart
gChart is a GENEREX plug-in for the MS Internet Explorer available as a free download from
the GENEREX web site. Quickly and easily visualise all of the CS121-adapter logfiles using
Generex's ActiveX graphical log controller GChart when using the Internet Explorer. Discover
UPS problems more easily and optimise system tuning more rapidly. Navigate through the

5.3
UPS monitor (UPSMON)
UPS-Monitor (UPSMON) is the graphical monitoring and command inferface application for
UPSMAN and is available in standard and custom interfaces.
In order to display the UPSMAN provided data via the network customer friendly, the modules
UPSMON and JAVAMON are delivered for free. The UPSMON is a client for all Microsoftplatforms, whereas the JAVAMON can be started on all operating systems, that support JAVA.
A LAN, WAN, or the Internet (TCP/IP) connection can be used as a connecting network
between UPSMAN and the management interfaces. Both graphic interfaces can be
customised to the demands of the UPS manufacturer, that’s why the UPSMON appearance
differs for almost every UPS maker product. This allows for an adaptation of all UPS systems
with all different kinds of functions. UPS systems, with serial interfaces often incorporate of a
variety of measured values and status information. Those can be displayed using overview or
block diagrams. Other devices, such as diesel generators or extra measuring units can be
integrated with this management software via the network. A separate password protected
screen can be created, if the devices also support remote controlling commands. The values
and status information, which are stored in the UPSMAN log file, can be requested from every
computer with an installed UPS monitor module.
Features:
• Monitoring of all UPS systems that are connected in the network via UPSMAN and
respective SNMP adapter
• gCHART dynamic visual log file graphic tool
• Remote controlling of all UPS systems via the network
• Graphic display of the UPS input data (voltage, power)
• Read out and display of the UPSMAN event-log files
• Programming of the UPSMAN scheduler
• Graphic screens containing all UPS information also under UNIX, MAC (JAVAMON)

CS121-Enhancements, Field of applications
SiteSwitch4 (SS4) and SiteSwitch4AUX (SS4AUX)
Figure 51: SideSwitch4 and SS4 AUX
SITEWITCH4AUX is a high-performed extension of the CS121-adapter but can also be
operated as stand-alone solution with the possibility to connect to UPS or UPS-similar devices.
The SITESWITCH has 4 power outputs sockets, which can be configurated by the event
settings of the CS121 or any other RCCMD compliant sender like SITEMANAGER,
SITEMONITOR.
Figure 52: CS121-Installation with SideSwitch4
Using the integrated Webserver, the SITESWITCH 4 enables the monitoring and the remote
control of its 4 power outputs. The power sockets can be switched on and off individually. This
can be done either manually via the HTML browser interface or UPSMON or automatically
using the EVENT manager of the CS121 - or any other network CS121 or compatible device.
When executing the action using the EVENT manager of the CS121, the power switching can
be preconfigured to run with delays or to run on a schedule. Both the UPSMON time scheduler
and the HTML time scheduler can be used to configure a power switching time schedule.
This task can also be achieved using the full version of the UNMS UPS Network Management
Software.
Note:
54
(only SS4, not SS4AUX) If you wish to use a UPS with your SS4 then
you must install the appropriate CS121 Firmware on your SS4. The
default Firmware on SS4 (OEMID 27) is for the usage without UPS, as
standalone remote powerswitch. For UPS usage at the SS4 you must
also be sure to set the Exchange COM Ports checkbox and then use the
configuration cable to connect the SS4 with your UPS.
Figure 53: Exchange COM Ports 1 & 2 for SS4
6.1.1
SS4 Feature overview
• 4 configurable powers sockets with a breaking capacity of 230V/8A
• Power socket status indicator via HTML, UPSMON, UNMS or SNMP
• Control via the internal CS121 or via remote CS121 or RCCMD compatible devices
• Remote control of the powers sockets via HTML Browser (Password protected)
• LED-Status of the power sockets

6.1.2
SS4 Contents
• SITESWITCH 4
• 16A IEC 230V power cable
• 2 mounting irons for 19“-Rack installation
• manual for SS4
The manuals are being constantly updated and therefore the reader is encouraged to check
our website for a newer download version of the adapter manual. Check
http://www.generex.de for manual updates.
6.1.3
SS4 Installation
The power consuming devices are connected to the SS4 using IEC 250 VAC/6A plug cables.
The SS4 has 4 IEC 250VAC/6A chassis sockets that can be switched on and off separately.
Special notice is to be given to the 8A threshold breaking capacity; exceeding this limit will
cause the SS4 fuse to break leaving all connected devices without electricity.
Note:
Due to errors that may cause the switched off power outlet to remain on
it is necessary to conduct the following: Before connecting any power
consuming devices with the SITESWITCH 4 or working on any power
consuming devices already connected to the SITESWTICH 4, make sure
that the SITESWITCH 4 is not connected to the power supply by pulling
its power cable out of the power socket.
Use the provided mounting irons to fix the SS4 into a 19“ rack. Place the SS4 so that the front
panel of the SS4 can be securely screwed onto the 19“ rack housing while insuring also that
the power cables can be connected from behind as well.
As soon as all of the power consuming devices are connected to the SS4, the IEC 16 power
supply cable can be connected. Upon establishing power to the SS4, the green „POWER„ LED
will light up, and the 4 „Power Socket Status LED“ one for each of the sockets should be unlit.
This means that none of the sockets are being provided with power thus cutting the connected
devices from the power supply.
55
The CS121 establishes a user interface for the SS4 for which the user has the option of using
either UPSMON, Webbrowser, UNMS or an SNMP-Program. All communications take place
either through a modem or network connection. Detailed information is covered in section 7.7.9
AUX and SS4 Settings.

Sensor SM_T_COM
The SM_T_COM is a temperature sensor for the use with a GENEREX CS121. It has a range
from -25° - 100° Celsisus (-13° –212° Fahrenheit) and comes with a 1.8 meter cable for
connecting to the CS121 COM2 port. The SM_T_COM is designed for monitoring and
management of 19"- racks, UPS rooms, server and data center rooms and for industrial
applications. Simple Plug' n Play connections insure that the sensor can be easily and safely
installed.
Figure 54: The Sensor SM_T_COM
Figure 55: CS121-Installation with temperature SM_T_COM
The SM_T_COM (also available as SM_T_H – a combination of Temperature and Humidity) is
a temperature sensor with an RS232 protocol which can be connected directly to the CS121
COM2 port. (Not BUDGET series).
The SM_T_COM shows the actual values on the CS121 Webserver screen and allows to
trigger alarms, emails, messages in case the values exceed configurable thresholds.
SM_T_COM is simply connected with the original CS121-TEMP cable (part of every CS121
SC and L) to the COM2. In the Webinterface COM2 & AUX you have to change to the COM2
mode to “SM_T_COM”, press “apply” and “save&exit” and reboot to start the CS121 with your
new settings. The Configuration of thresholds and Events is made via the Event-configuration
windows and the SM_T_COM configuration page.

6.3.1
SENSORMANAGER
General information
If more than 1 or 2 environmental values are wanted to manage, than the SENSORMANGER
(SensorMan) is your choice. This device is a data measurement and collecting unit which
allows the individual measurement and monitoring of 8 analog measurement devices (0-10V)
and 4 digital alarm inputs or 4 outputs (open collectors).
Figure 56: Sensor Manager (SensorMan)
The SENSORMANAGER is a system extension for the CS121 series or for a Windows PC:
Universal Remote Sensor Control Box for the monitoring of temperature, humidity and many
other types of sensors as well as for the the management of digital input/output signals. 8
analog inputs (0-10V), + 4 digital input and/or outputs (48 V 500mA). Digital Outputs are
configurable as normally open or as normally closed. Digital input connections directly through
sensor for some models or connect directly to the RJ11 socket. Convenient splitting plug
available for attaching two sensors to one RJ11 socket.
Purpose:
• Monitoring of temperatures, humidity and other analog data in computer rooms with
automated response to system alarms.
• Alarms can be individually configured and defined for trip contacts such as fire, smoke and
intrusion, and minimum/maximum thresholds values can be set for analog devices such as
humidity, temperature and pressure, fluid level, etc. – any sensor which transmits its values
between 0- 10 V may be connected to a SENSORMANAGER.
• Data logging, logging of alarms, automatic shutdowns of network computers, and other
actions can be set as reactions to critical alarms.
• All system operating and configuring can be done remotely via Web browser. The EVENT
driven alarm management system of the CS121 informs the administrator of problems and
may automatically switch off computers and other devices (Optional extensions: SITESWITCH
4 or SITEMANGER).
• The SENSORMANAGER is an extension to the CS121 Webmanager. If you want to connect
any other computing device, please download the RS-232 protocol for the SENSOR
MANAGER from our website and adjust your software to this communication type.
Important:
The SENSORMANAGER is compatible to the former TEMPMAN MI4. Users wishing to
manage more than 4 temperatures must update the CS121 to Firmware 2.53 or higher. New
firmware for your CS121 is available for download at: http://www.generex.de
57
6.3.2
Installation and Network integration
Figure 57: CS121-Installation with SENSORMANAGER
As shown in the figure above CS121 can also be applied to observe and react on alarms of the
SENSORMANAGER-Inputs. Therefore, the CS121 COM2 port is connected and configurated
for the SensorManager’s AUX- and Sensor-Input/Outputs. Within the CS121 configuration it is
possible to define actions, which will be released from events of the SensorManager’s devices.
6.3.3
SENSORMAN connections
For a detailed description of the Pin layout of the Input sockets see section in the appendix.
Here, we give you an Example for some contacts:
• Alarm INPUT contact:
If the alarm contact INPUT is used, you may connect your alarm contact e.g. to Input 1 Pin 6
and Power supply Pin 1. In the CS121 you can configure that as a HIGH signal to the alarm is
set – or the other way round.
• OUTPUT contact:
If you want to switch any relays or send high signals to the Output, you may connect your
Output contact e.g. to Input 1 Pin 5 to your relays and configure the CS121 as “Output” for this
signal. Now you may configure your Events in the CS121 to set the Output to HIGH or LOW.
• Sensor connection:
The sensor has to work within 0-10Volts, this may be connected directly to Channels 1-8, and
the CS121 will now show the values in its Web browser. Alarm thresholds and actions may be
configured via the EVENT manager of the CS121.
• Connecting the SENSORMANAGER unit:
The SensorMan has to be connected with the original configuration cable of the CS121 to
COM 2.
The sensors for the SensorMan may be connected direct to the socket Inputs 1-4 using an
RJ11 cable. In this configuration you can only use up to 4 sensors. If you want to use all 8
analog inputs, you have to use a splitting plug (optional) or connect the sensors directly to the
Channel Inputs as described above.
If you use the sensor type SM, you may connect a second SM sensor to the input of the first
SM. You can not connect more than 2 SM sensors in line.
For connecting an alarm contact to the SM-sensor, you may use the first or the second SMcontact input/output, but not both. Only one digital input/output is available per socket.
Other sensors: If you use other sensors than SM, EE or TM, you must use a splitting plug in
order to connect more than one sensor to a single Input of the SensorMan.
58
6.3.4
Configuration
For setting up the sensors in the SensorMan make sure your configuration matches your
sensor type, e.g. see example:
Figure 58: HTTP - SENSORMANAGER Settings
Using the splitting plugs (Part NO.SPSMRJ) it is possible to connect up to 8 sensors and 4
contacts to the SensorMan. A Mounting Kit (sold separately) is available for affixing the
SensorMan to walls and railings.
The power supply for the SensorMan may also supply an external CS121 using a SM-CS121
type cable (sold separately) by simply connecting the Power-out of the SensorMan with the
Power-in of the CS121 external.
Note:
A combination of CS121 – SITESWITCH 4 SENSORMANAGER in a
compact chassis is the SITEMANAGER – for more information about
this Rackmonitoring and management device please refer to GENEREX
website.
• Startup the Sensor Manager:
Connect the sensors to the SensorMan. Connect the SensorMan using the Mini8-DBSub9
cable to the COM 2 port of the CS121. Finally, plug the power supply into one of the UPS
power outlets. Check the green LEDs on the bottom of the SensorMan; one should be flashing
when reading data, and the other should be constantly lit. The flashing LED shows the
requests from the CS121 – this means the installation is OK. The other LED shows that the
device has started.
Note:
You have to configure the CS121 COM2 port to “SensorMan” –
otherwise the CS121 will not start making requests to the Sensor
Manager.
When the SENSORMANAGER is running, you will see the values in the AUX section of the
CS121 Web browser.

RASMANAGER
The RAS-Manager relays alarm signals coming from monitoring devices such as UPS,
SiteManagers, contact alarms and the like to monitoring stations or email receivers. Any
computer with RAS capabilities (Windows, Linux) can be used as a monitoring station. The
only requirement is the setup of an PPPServer on the monitoring station. After the
establishment of communications between the RAS-Manager and the monitoring station, a
RCCMD signal is sent that depending on configuration can either make log entries, send
emails and SMSs or execute programs.
Figure 59: RASMANAGER network integration
6.5
LED-Matrix Display
The LED-Matrix display is a remote display unit for relaying RCCMD messages that can be
operated via the Ethernet.
Figure 60: LED-Matrix display network integration
Any device operating as an RCCMD Sender like a computer running UPSMAN software,
RCCMD clients, CS121 Web managers and other RCCMD 2 compatible products can send
text messages or environmental data values to the LED-Matrix and can add sounding alarms
for warnings that require immediate attention. Users can also use the built in Web server
interface of the LED-Matrix to relay alarms and messages without the use of an RCCMD
Sender. The user simply enters the message into the Web browser that is to be relayed
through the LED-Matrix.
6.6
MODBUS / PROFIBUS
• MODBUS
Modbus is a serial communications protocol for use with its programmable logic controllers
(PLCs). It has become a de facto standard communications protocol in industry, and is now the
most commonly available means of connecting industrial electronic devices. Modbus allows for
communication between many devices connected to the same network, for example a system
60
that measures temperature and humidity and communicates the results to a computer.
Modbus is often used to connect a supervisory computer with a remote terminal unit (RTU) in
supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems.
The CS121-series (exclude BUDGET models) support MODBUS over IP and MODBUS over
RS232 generally. Additionally, the CS121MODBUS-series also includes an RS485 interface at
COM2, which can be connected to a 485Bus-system.
Figure 61: CS121MODBUS Installation
• PROFIBUS
PROFIBUS (Process Field Bus) is the most popular type of fieldbus with more than 14 million
nodes (2006) in use worldwide. PROFIBUS was defined in 1991/1993 as DIN 19245, moved in
1996 to EN 50170 and is since 1999 included in IEC 61158/IEC 61784 Standards.
To integrate the CS121 in a Profibus environment, GENEREX offers a Profibus gateway,
which converts the MODBUS output of the CS121 into PROFIBUS environment.
Figure 62: CS121 PROFIBUS Installation
6.7
UNMS (UPS-Network Management System)
UNMS II is a UPS network monitor designed to inform you of emergency power supply
systems problems before your clients, end-users or managers do. The UNMS as a limited
version is part of every UPSMAN license (UPSMAN suite contains UPSMAN RS232/USB UPS
Manager, UPSMON Windows client and UNMS 2 – limited to 9 UPS). The UNMS Server
Service runs intermittent checks on UPS devices you specify. When problems are
encountered, the UNMS Server Service can send notifications out to administrative contacts in
a variety of different ways (For example: Email). Current status information, historical logs, and
reports can all be accessed via a web browser (Web Console).

Figure 63: UNMS-Installation
MIB-Integration into your NMS
Standard-NMS Installations require for each device to be monitored its specific MIB
(Management Information Base). To monitore the CS121 the Standard-MIB for UPS-systems,
RFC1628, is generally to be integrated into your NMS.
To identify CS121 adapters in your network you may use the MAC address. The MAC address
of every CS121 adapter starts with 00-03-05-02-XX-XX, whereas this address can be found in
the Telnet menu (menu: IP address, gateway address, MIB system group).
Your SNMP adapter is now installed and fully functional. Please read the following for
configuration and functionality descriptions of the adapter.
The MIB is to be loaded onto each SNMP Management Station that is monitoring an UPS via
an UPS SNMP Agent. The MIB determines which UPS parameters can be monitored and
controlled with the SNMP commands „get“ and „set“.
To complete the SNMP adapter installation and configuration process, you must compile the
necessary MIBs to configure the NMS. Any NMS with a MIB compiler can manage the SNMP
adapter.
Perform a „get" and a „set". If the get or set command fail, check the SNMP adapter access
control. The manager must have read permission to execute a get command and read / write
permission to execute a set command successfully.
For instructions on how to compile MIBs for the most popular NMSs - Novell's NetWare
Management Station, Hewlett-Packard´s OpenView Network Node Manager, and SunConnect;
SunNet Manager; see the corresponding heading below.
Please note that the CS121 uses the standard MIB, which is included in most SNMP software
already. This MIB is called UPSMIB and corresponds with the Standard RFC1628. In most
cases compiling of the MIB is not required as it can be found under:
62
iso.org.dod.internet.mgmt.mib2.upsMIB
Please check your MIB directory before compiling the RFC1628!
Configure the NMS
• Set/compile the device MIB, if there is no standard UPS MIB RFC 1628 (CS121 only!)
• Add the SNMP adapter object to the management map and configuration of the events (e.g.
message to the operator)
• Ping the SNMP adapter
Due to the different compilation procedures of the SNMP software products, it is not possible
to explain the general procedures in greater detail. The compilation of a MIB file is explained in
the general SNMP software manuals. Please contact the support, if you cannot resolve errors
using this manual.
After the compilation the UPS software can be polled via a MIB browser and data can be read.
Please choose the corresponding MIB variable or string of MIB variable and set the destination
address TCP/IP of the adapter. The adapter will answer with the UPS data.
Alternatively the Windows UPSMON, JAVAMON or the UPS SNMP WATCH of the DataWatch
Pro Software can be used. The UPS data will then be displayed graphically and internal UPS
information, which are only useful to the technical support, will be hidden. In addition to this,
the UPS SNMP WATCH is able to manage groups of UPS devices, in order to manage parallel
redundant UPS systems.
As an optional add-on for the HP OpenView software, a snap-in may be ordered for
UPSMAN/CS121.
Note:
7.
(SNAP-IN FOR HP OPENVIEW for WINDOWS NT, SNAP-IN FOR HP
OPENVIEW for HP UNIX). This software implements itself into the HP
Openview Node Manager surface and displays UPS devices as objects
in the colors GREEN (OK), GREEN and RED (Alarm). With a mouse
click, the graphic window starts (JAVAMON or Windows UPSMON) and
displays current UPS data.

The maximum input voltage is 3,3V. The input signals may be fed from external power sources
or feed directly from Pin 1. If the external power supply delivers more than 5V a pre-resistor
has to be fitted. The input resistance of the input is 5,1 kΩ
When using a opto coupler switch, a Pull up resistor of 1,5kOhm has to be used.
Output-voltage: If configured as OUTPUT, every Pin delivers 3.3 Volt/10mA.

MODBUS Interface
D.1.
General information
For remote control and monitoring of devices the MODBUS interface in each CS121 M can
read out measurement values, events, status and other information in a master-slave protocol.
Note:
D.2.
Please note that not all UPS models support all or specific measurement
values (e.g. battery low).
Available Modbus Function Codes
Implemented MODBUS functions in the CS121 M units:
01H
Read Coils
02H
Read Discrete Inputs
03H
Read Holding Registers
04H
Read Input Registers
05H
Write Single Coil
Which functions are supported depends on the connected UPS. For standard UPS only
functions 03H and 04H are available. In this case the CS121 M makes no difference between
function 03H and 04H. The baud rate is adjustable up to 115200 Baud.
Note:
D.3.
Please note that the MODBUS adapter client allows a timeout of 40ms at
9600 baud for one value.
Exception Codes
Except for broadcast messages, when a master device sends a query to a slave device it
expects a normal response. One of four possible events can occur from the master's query:
If the slave device receives the query without a communication error, and can handle the query
normally, it returns a normal response.
If the slave does not receive the query due to a communication error, no response is returned.
The master program will eventually process a timeout condition for the query.
If the slave receives the query, but detects a communication error parity, LRC, or CRC, no
response is returned. The master program will eventually process a timeout condition for the
query.
If the slave receives the query without a communication error, but cannot handle it (for
example, if the request is to read a non existent register the slave will return an exception
response informing the master of the nature of the error.
Available Exception codes:
Code
Meaning
01H
Illegal
The command received in the query is not defined.

Bus termination
It is necessary to set the last bus device on the RS-485 Bus jumper for the bus termination.
The jumper is already set in newly delivered adapters. Please remove the 4 screws at the
underside of the adapter in order to open the box. You will find the jumper J1 near the network
connector. Default is ON = CS121 is last device. If you take off the Jumper, then the CS121
can be used inside a group of chained devices.
D.7.
Configuration
Please use Telnet (network connection) for the configuration with the default IP address
10.10.10.10. Put DIP switch 1 into the “OFF” position. If you have a RS-232/ RS-485 converter
available you can also use a HyperTerminal via COM2 with both DIP switches in the “OFF”
position.
D.8.
TCP/IP - UDP Ports
The following are ports of the CS121 SNMP Adapter. These are the ports that have to be
made available in the Firewall in order to use all of the CS121 functions:

MODBUS Cables
The following cable (Cable 112) is used for connecting the Schneider Electrics TSX SCY
CM6030 MODBUS device and the CS121 MODBUS adapter.
Figure 74: MODBUS - Cable 112
NOTE: it is very important that the Shield is connected to the MINI 8 housing and to the
MODBUS requesting device common ground!
