    Given that it refers to grounds, the signalling pins will be high (ie
    positive). It'll only take 10 seconds with a multimeter to confirm
    whether high is fault or normal - just test the mains fail pin whilst
    turning off the supply.

    Use the XP functionality - it works well. The RUPS software is pretty
    old (well pre-XP) and may give issues running alongside other apps.
