APC UPS and Serial to USB Cable
Posts: n/a
My friend moved out of the country so he donated to me an agining APC
Smart UPS 1400. I replaced the battery and it works fine. However, I
notice to have the UPS interface with the computer (hence, shut down
the computer if power goes down) it uses RS-232 serial port.

Is it possible to get a USB to Serial adapter and use that instead of
the serial port to interact with the APC software?
