System Architecture
InsightPower Panel can work alone to monitor all of the UPSes in the same
RS485 bus. It can also work with InsightPower Manager to monitor the UPSes
InsightPower Panel sends querying commands to the UPSes actively then listen
for the responses when it works alone. If InsightPower Manager is installed in the
same bus then InsightPower Panel switches to listen mode to catch the UPS
response packets.

InsightPower Panel
After the InsightPower Panel program has been installed and startup, please proceed
to connect the RS485 cable between panel PC and UPS.
The following is the RS485 configuration of Advantech TPC-66SN:
The COM4 of TPC-66 has built-in RS485 without termination resister. Physically,
the COM3 and COM4 share the same D-sub9 connector so you only see COM1,
COM2 and COM3 on its rear panel.
Pin Number Description
Connects the Data+ pin of UPS to the Data+, pin of TPC-66, the Data- pin of UPS to the
Data- pin of TPC-66. As shown in Fig 2-3.

Fig 4-1
After the password is verified correctly, the Exit button will change to Setup button.
Press the Setup button to popup the Setup dialog box.
COM Setup:
Select the COM Port to change the communication port of Panel PC. If InsightPower
Panel is communicating with Delta NT or T series, the Baud Rate should be 2400.
Polling indicates the time delay to send next querying packet. Timeout value is used to
determine the communication timeout event.
Fig 4-2
Note: InsightPower Panel will be in listen mode when it works with InsightPower
Manager. In this situation, InsightPower Panel has to parse double communication
frames than Insightower Manager. If the Polling speed of InsightPower Panel is 100ms
then the Polling speed of InsightPower Manager should be configure to longer than
200ms. After considering the performance of CPU, we suggest the Polling speed of
IsightPower Manager is longer than 400ms.

Log Setup:
Max Event Log is used to assign the maximum number of event log. Save Data Interval
indicates the period of time to save historical data for each UPS and Keep History Data
is used to adjust the file size of historical data. Base on our statistics, if each UPS saves
historical data every minute then the file size is about 300K bytes for each day.
Clear Event Log button can be used to clear the event log.
Clear Data Log button is used to remove all of the historical data files.
