Find and Connect a UPS compatible

This Buffalo NAS seems to be compatible only with UPS APC SU500J which is currently impossible to obtain outside Japan. Therefore Sub-D 9pin connector should use the communication protocol "smart comments" but I didn't find any information about this protocol !?
The user manual also describe Sub-D9 pin assignment and PIN 2 is describe as "APC_Line_Fail", PIN 3 as "APC_UPS_SHUTDOWN", PIN 5 as GND and PIN 7 as +12V. I have connected an other UPS model (whithout communication) to protect power supply of NAS. But I'd like to shutdown NAS anyway when UPS battery is empty. Can you help me to find solution to communicate with NAS ? Do you think I need to send specific ASCII code to NAS or is it only change of Electric level on PIN's which trigger the shutdown process ? Thank you to everybody.

SOURCE: Can't assign ip configuration to NAS 208

Run Fastora Assist, it should detect your NAS even if no IP address is assigned to the NIC(s). Make sure to connect all NIC(s).

SOURCE: Front panel connections

Hi sjcrofts,
The most common problem for most people is knowing what wire color is positive & which wire color is negative. The colors blue, red, green, light blue, light red & light green are normally positive. The color white & black are negative. Your board uses only 2-pin connectors. The 3-pin power connector can be turned into a 2-pin connector to work with the M848ALU pins.
(Page 13, PANEL1). How to? Take the three pin connector, on the back side of the connector you'll see a small tab that holds the wire into the connector. Use a needle & pull tab up while pulling the wire out at the same time. The wire should slide out. Insert the wire back into the connector next to the other wire. You do not need to hook up the SUS led which stands for suspend.

Pin 1 is positive & the manual shows this by adding the _P = positive.
Pin 3 which is to the right of pin 1, is negative for the hard drive led. Pins 9 & 10 are not used.

Good luck sjcrofts!
Mike

SOURCE: Need SPDIF pinouts identified.

When looking at the board, bottom towards you assuming that the 3 pins are parallel to the pci/e slots, the left pin should be the +5V vcc the middle pin is the spdif out and the right pin is the ground. Also the 3 pins are probably not exactly the same distance from each other (equally spaced) the 2 pins that are closest together are the spdif and the ground, spdif is always the middle pin. This info is based on 2 different asus motherboard install guides. I hope this helps you.

Battert tab broke when attempting to remove (replace) batteries. Cannot get old batteries out of Smart UPS1000. Front-most battery appears to have swelled.


You'll need to remove the cover and battery cage from the unit. I've run into this before, just take your time and be careful there are likely some sharp edges inside.

When the batteries overheat and swell, they press against the metal in the unit and get wedged in.

This older model APC does not support USB and it is inlikely that even if you found a cable that would connect them that the electronics in this unit would play nice with USB. Might be time to consider an upgrade, although these are a great units they just do not have the compatibility with newer computers.

UPS Switching off while working


Hi kumaraswamy5,
it seems that either the UPS is connected to an outled which isn't grounded properly or the battery inside of the UPS needs a replacement.
On APC's website you can find the compatible batteries for your device and where to order them. Replacing the batteries is very easy so don't be afraid of that!
