PowerChute software for Mac OS X?

This was originally posted on APC forums on 2/17/2017


Hello.

In Windows like 7, PowerChute software is used for APC UPSes for their details, tests, etc. Where can I get it for Mac OS X (v10.5.8/Leopard and v10.8.5/Mountain Lion)? I am unable to find it. 😞

Thank you in advance. 🙂

PowerChute Personal Edition for the Macintosh was discontinued quite some time ago. Even if you found a copy, it might not work any longer under newer versions of Mac OS X.

Compared to the PC Edition, PCPE for the Macintosh was very limited. It couldn't do many of the things that the PC/Windows edition could.

Mac OS X contains built in, basic support for an APC UPS and if it's not enough, apcupsd is far more capable.

Thanks. Yeah the one in Mac OS X was limited too. I was looking for more details, features, etc. I guess I will try apcupsd even though it is not user friendly like Windows' GUI PowerChute PE. 😞

If your UPS has a network card then you can use PowerChute Network Shutdown which actually works pretty well on Mac:

No, they don't since I use home consumer APC UPSes like Back-UPS ES-750 (BE750G) unless I miss something.
