Important Notice

Please read this notice if you are using an external BestLink Adapter with a Unity/I Three-Phase UPS

If you are using an external BestLink Adapter, part numbers IPK-0318 or IPK-0319, please contact the Help Desk (see page 33) to receive a DB-9 to DB-25 adapter (INT-0012) at no charge.

Connect the DB-9 to DB-25 adapter (INT-0012) to the X003 port on the Unity/I Three-Phase communications interface board. After you have completed the configuration of the BestLink Adapter using the interface cable labeled “PC,” move it to the port on the BestLink Adapter labeled “UPS” and connect the opposite end to the DB-9 to DB-25 adapter. Reset the BestLink Adapter to ensure that it properly establishes communication with the UPS.

C H A P T E R 1

INTRODUCTION

The BestLink SNMP/WEB Adapter is a network adapter for your uninterruptible power system (UPS) that provides both SNMP and HTTP compatibility, as well as advanced communication with true RS-232.

The BestLink SNMP/WEB Adapter is available in two models: and internal for UPSs with a BestDock slot and external for connection to the UPS serial port. Both models can connect to a twisted-pair Ethernet (10baseT) network using an RJ-45 connector.

SNMP-compatible network management software (user-supplied) may be used to monitor the UPS in a method similar to that of other network devices. Others may wish to use a web browser such as NetscapeZ or Microsoft9 Internet Explorer to monitor and manage the connected UPS.

The adapter also supports remote monitoring and shutdown from UPS-protected computer systems. NetWatch client software for use with a BestLink Adapter is supplied on the Invensys Software Suite CD or on the web at www.powerware.com. Client software is available for

Windows9 95/98/NT/2000, Novell9 NetWare9 and various versions of UNIX9. These programs communicate through TCP/IP with the BestLink Adapter and automatically shutdown the protected system during extended power outages.

In addition, the BestLink SNMP/WEB Adapter has the following features:

:Configuration from serial port, telnet, or HTTP web browser.

:Management from HTTP web browser or SNMP management software.

:Supports MIB_II and BestLink MIB (bestpwr2.mib) management information bases.

:Firmware upgradable from a Windows utility via a network connection.

:Scheduling function to control UPS shutdowns and startups.

:History log files (data and events) for recording power problems.

:UPS status information available to registered NetWatch clients for automatic shutdown of Windows 95/98/NT/2000, Novell NetWare, and UNIX.

:E-mail notification of changes in the UPS status.

INSTALLATION

Installing the Internal BestLink Adapter

C A U T I O N

Before installing or removing the BestLink SNMP/WEB Adapter, the UPS MUST be turned off. Hot-swapping is prohibited.

To install the internal BestLink SNMP/WEB Adapter, perform the following steps:

1.Remove the BestDock cover on the UPS rear panel. Retain the screws.

2.Install one of the mounting plates on the BestLink Adapter according to your UPS model. Use the supplied screw to secure the mounting plate to the adapter.

Any one of the three tabs can be removed from the three-tab mounting plate so that the adapter fits securely into the UPS slot.

3.To prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD), place one hand on a metal surface such as the UPS rear panel.

Slide the BestLink Adapter into the open slot and secure with the screws removed in Step 1 (see Figure 2).

4.Set both DIP switches on the adapter to the 0 (off) position.

5.Connect an active 10BaseT cable to the network connector on the BestLink Adapter.

NOTE For an internal BestLink Adapter in a FERRUPS 0800, Axxium Pro, or Powerware 9170 UPS, you MUST change the Config BestDock parameter for that UPS to BestDock 1 or 2 as applicable. Refer to the UPS user’s guide for detailed instructions on how to change the parameter through the UPS front panel configuration menu.

6. Continue to “Configuration” on page 6.

Installing the External BestLink Adapter

To install the external BestLink SNMP/WEB Adapter, perform the following steps:

1.Verify that the UPS is turned off.

2.Use the supplied serial cable labeled “UPS” to connect the UPS port on the BestLink Adapter to the UPS communication port.

If connecting to a FERRUPS model with a DB-25S communication port, you must also use the supplied DB-9 to DB-25 adapter labeled INT-0013B.

3.Set both DIP switches on the adapter to the 0 (off) position.

Installation

Configuration

You must configure the BestLink SNMP/WEB Adapter before you can use it. There are two ways to configure the adapter:

:locally through the serial communication port

:remotely using a web browser or telnet utility

Configuring the Adapter Locally

The adapter has a configuration program that you can access by using a serial cable to connect the adapter to a terminal or a computer with a terminal emulation program.

If you choose to configure your adapter locally, see “Local Configuration” on page 7.

Configuring the Adapter Remotely

You can configure the adapter remotely through a network using a web browser or telnet utility.

NOTE Security-related parameters and some hardware parameters cannot be configured from a web browser, but can be changed from the telnet utility.

If you choose to configure your adapter remotely, see “Remote Configuration” on page 15.

LOCAL CONFIGURATION

Use the following procedure to use the adapter’s configuration program through a serial port.

Before You Start

To use the configuration screens for the adapter, you need:

:The serial configuration cable included in the adapter package.

:A terminal with a serial communication port, or a PC with a terminal emulation program such as HyperTerminal9.

The serial line should be set to 9600 baud, No parity, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, and no flow control.

Local Configuration

Connecting the BestLink SNMP/WEB Adapter

To connect the adapter to the terminal and start the configuration program:

1.If configuring an external BestLink Adapter, connect the supplied serial cable labeled “PC” to the PC port on the BestLink Adapter (see Figure 4).

If configuring an internal BestLink Adapter, connect the serial cable supplied with the UPS (INT-0062) to the communication port on the UPS (see Figure 5).
