APC UPS and Serial to USB Cable

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by george.bozovic, Jul 29, 2007.

  1. Hi,
    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?

    Thanks!
