APC's UPS Network Management Cards provide management of your UPSs by connecting the UPS directly to the network with a dedicated IP address, avoiding the need for a proxy such as a server. Embedded technology provides exceptional reliability and enables the UPS to reboot hung equipment. Manage each APC UPS individually via web browser, Telnet or SSH. Notification features inform you of problems as they occur. For protected servers, graceful unattended shutdown is provided in case of extended power outages.
The AP9618 Management Card includes an Integrated Environmental Monitor that provides the following features: A temperature sensor; Two input contacts; Two-position output relay. In addition to the Integrated Environmental Monitor, an AP9618 Management Card can also monitor and manage an Environmental Monitoring Card.
An AP9618 Network Management Card EM/MDM has an internal analog modem that provides for the following out-of-band communication: Dial-out notificationsfor APC Remote Monitoring Service (RMS); Dial-in access to the Management Card's Console Interface.
The Management Card can be installed into the following APC devices: any Smart-UPS or Matrix-UPS model that has an internal expansion slot, as well as any Silcon, Symmetra, or Symmetra PX UPS. A Silcon UPS, which does not have an expansion slot, requires using a Silcon Triple Expansion Chassis (AP9604S).
