2.2 Connecting the PDU (continued)
2.2.6 Connect PDU Input Plugs: (See the
Configuration and Operation section for more
information.) Connect the Primary input plug A to a
preferred source of grounded 120V/230V AC power,
such as a SmartOnline™ UPS System. The UPS
system must not share a circuit with a heavy
electrical load (such as an air conditioner or
refrigerator). Under normal operating conditions,
the PDU will distribute AC power from the Primary
input source. Connect the Secondary input plug B
to an alternative source of grounded 120V/230V AC
power, such as a redundant SmartOnline UPS
System. The UPS system must not share a circuit
with a heavy electrical load (such as an air
conditioner or refrigerator). Do not plug the
Secondary input into the same power source as the
Primary input. The PDU will distribute AC power
from the Secondary input only if the Primary input
becomes unavailable.

2.3 Networking the PDU
2.3.1 Preparation
Locate MAC Address: The 12-digit MAC address (000667xxxxxx) is printed in two locations: a label
attached to the underside of the card and a duplicate label inside the box. Attach the duplicate label to the
UPS system or keep it in a secure location for easy reference.
Determine Installation Method: If your network's DHCP server will assign a dynamic IP address to the
SNMPWEBCARD automatically, proceed to Dynamic IP Address Assignment. If you will assign a static
IP address to the SNMPWEBCARD manually, proceed to Static IP Address Assignment. If you are
uncertain which method to use, contact your network administrator for assistance before continuing the
installation process.
2.3.2 Dynamic IP Address Assignment
Connect SNMPWEBCARD to Network: Connect a standard Ethernet patch cable to the RJ-45 Ethernet
port on the card. Note: This port does not support PoE (Power over Ethernet) applications. The card will
attempt to obtain an IP address via DHCP. This may take as long as several minutes, depending on your
network environment.
Discover IP Address: Contact your network administrator to determine which IP address has been
assigned to the card by the DHCP server. The card can be identified on the DHCP server by referring to
its MAC address (see Step 1-3). You may wish to request a long-term lease period for the IP address,
depending on your application. After you have discovered the IP address, proceed to 4 -Test and
Configure. Note: The DHCP address is also displayed during boot-up when connected to a computer
through the configuration cable and a terminal emulation program.
IP Address Display (Model PDUMH20HVATNET): Press and hold the switch to display the IP address
of the SNMP card in the PDU.
2.3.3 Static IP Address Assignment/Terminal Menu Configuration Settings
Determine IP Information: Before assigning a static IP address, you'll need to know the IP address,
gateway address and subnet mask. If you do not have this information, contact your network administrator
for assistance.
Configure Terminal Emulation Program: Open a VT100-compatible

You can also change the root password, real-time clock and other settings. (Tripp Lite recommends
against changing the default settings unless you are an advanced user with a specific purpose.) After you
have finished entering settings, the card will save changes to memory and reboot (this may take several
minutes). After the card reboots, the initialization page should display the new static IP settings.
Remove Serial Cable: Using one hand to hold the card in place, remove the serial cable. Proceed to Test
and Configure.
2.4 Test and Configure
2.4.1 Test Network Connection: After an IP address has been assigned to the card, try to access it with
a Web browser that supports frames, forms and Java™. Open a Web browser on a computer connected to
the LAN and enter the card's IP address. You should be prompted for a password. The user name is admin
and the default password is admin. After you enter the user name and password, the PowerAlert Status
page will appear in the browser window. For more information about configuration and operation of the
managed device, refer to the SNMPWEBCARD User's Guide, included on the CD-ROM bundled with
the card.
2.4.2 Default UPS Shutdown Setting: During a loss of utility power, the SNMPWEBCARD is
configured to shut down the UPS system 2 minutes after a low battery signal is received from the UPS.
This allows the UPS to provide the maximum available runtime to connected equipment. If you want to
change the default setting, follow these instructions:

4. Configuration and Operation
4.1 Automatic Transfer Switch
When the Primary and Secondary inputs are both connected to Tripp Lite UPS Systems, the PDU
operates as an Automatic Transfer Switch, providing redundant input power for high availability
applications. Under normal operating conditions, the PDU will distribute power from the Primary input
source, switching to the Secondary input source under certain conditions. The PDU will switch to the
Primary source whenever it is Good according to the PDU input voltage definitions (see below).
4.1.1 Preferred Configuration
The Automatic Transfer Switch function provides
increased availability when the Primary and
Secondary inputs of the PDU are connected to
separate Tripp Lite UPS Systems that are
connected to separate utility power sources. For
maximum availability, Tripp Lite recommends
using matching SmartOnline UPS Systems with
pure sine wave output for the Primary and
Secondary input power sources. The automatic
transfer switch function will be compromised if the
primary and secondary inputs are connected to the
same utility power source.
Warning: DO NOT connect the primary input
to a line-interactive UPS, due to transfer time
issues, or to any source that does not supply a
pure sine wave. Such sources may be used to
power the secondary input.

4. Configuration and Operation
(continued)
4.1.2 Automatic Transfer Switch Source Selection
The PDU will power up if one of the input sources is greater than the minimum startup voltage. In normal
operation (after power-up), if the presently selected source (primary or secondary) degrades to a lesser
condition, the unit should switch to the alternate source, if that source is of better quality. The unit
prefers the primary source, and will always switch to it in the event that both sources are of the same
(fair or good) quality. If the present source is becoming bad and the alternate source is at least fair, the
unit will switch to the alternate source.

4.1.3 Quick Test
After installing the PDU and connecting
equipment, you may test the Automatic Transfer
Switch function by temporarily shutting down the
UPS system connected to the Primary AC input. When
the Primary input UPS is no longer supplying AC
power, the PDU will switch from the Primary input to
the Secondary input, and the Secondary input LED
will illuminate. When the Primary input UPS has been
restarted and resumes supplying AC power, the PDU
will switch back to the Primary input.
Primary Input Active
Secondary Input Active
Note: The primary and secondary inputs must be connected to separate
sources of utility power. The automatic transfer switch function will be
compromised if the primary and secondary inputs are connected to the
same utility power source. Do not perform a test with equipment that
must remain in productive operation. Any test procedure must prepare
for the contingency that the equipment may lose power. Do not test the
PDU by detaching power cords which are connected to live power
sources, as this eliminates the connection to ground and places your
equipment at risk.
4.2 Remote Monitoring and Control
The PDU provides remote monitoring, outlet control and more via Web browser, telnet and SNMP-based
Network Management Systems. For more information about configuration and operation of the PDU via
the PowerAlert Web browser interface, refer to the SNMPWEBCARD User's Guide, included on the
CD-ROM bundled with the PDU.
Load "Ramping" on Startup: All models arrive from the factory programmed so that, when first
powered up, their outlets turn on in sequential order at intervals of approximately 250 ms. This prevents
circuit overloads by staggering the startup of multiple devices. Models PDUMH15ATNET,
PDUMH20ATNET and PDUMH20HVATNET support user-programmable startup of outlets, in any
order or time interval. This ensures that network items are turned on in the proper sequence, with the
appropriate delay, so that network items are reliably discovered on startup.
Programmable Load "Shedding" During a Power Failure: In the event that the primary power source
fails and the PDU is relying on the secondary power source, load shedding allows you to program the
shutoff of specific outlets at timed intervals. This enables you to turn off less critical loads (monitors, for
example) to maximize the UPS runtime for the most critical items.
