How can I integrate my SMT Smart-UPS with third party applications?Product Line:
All models except for SMT1000RM1U and SMT1500RM1U, UPS Firmware Rev 9.0 or greaterCause:
APC by Schneider Electric uses a proprietary protocol called Microlink to communicate with APC branded software solutions. This protocol is used by all SMC, SMT, SMX, and SURTD series Smart-UPS products. Some customers may want to integrate UPS communications directly with their own applications.Resolution:
To allow for third party integration APC has enabled Modbus communications on all SMT series Smart-UPS (except for the SMT1000RM1U and SMT1500RM1U).
The UPS units must be running UPS firmware version 9.0 or greater.
Documentation for Modbus integration (and other Communications Information) is available via the following two App Notes: AN-176
"Modbus Implementation in APC Smart-UPS" AN-177
"Software interface for Switched Outlet and UPS Management in Smart-UPS" AN-181
