apcupsd and SMC1500I

This was originally posted on APC forums on 1/11/2017


Hi

I foolishly purchased the above device thinking it had a slot for an SNMP card, but when I got it I realised it doesn't.

So I'm trying to run apcupsd to monitor the device.  Powerchute looks like it has all the useful info like Line in, Line out, etc. but the apcupsd output seems very limited.  i.e. See below.  I get no indication of linve voltage in or out, load power or anything else.

Please can you advise?  It seems very much more limited than even the £80 APC devices I've been using in the past.

In my experience, I think that its all there is the unit can offer. Actually, you can see in the LCD Display of the unit the input and output voltage, you'll just have to manually check it in front of your unit. With regards to the NMC Slot of your unit, unfortunately, that's all there is. I wish that you'd purchased the SMT Model because even the 750VA ones has an NMC Card slot.
