Re: apc battery backup

You probably have a bad battery. It's also possible that you have a very bad energy supplier. But most likely the battery is on it's last leg.

I put a new battery in 2 times and the battry is

Some feature on your opener must have a switch that is stick in the closed (on) position. Possibly, you put a near dead battery into the device? Please check with a volt meter.

You could check the device with a volt/ohm meter in the circuit ... put the meter between the + post of the battery and the + contact of the device. Put a wire on the - battery and the - device to complete the circuit ... if you are using power, there should be some amp reading on the meter.

I lost the combination to my APC PNOTECL5

Call customer support. If they can't do anything, look up combination lock cracking on the internet.

Video splitters

I don\'t know about your specific brand, but splitters have losses that are typically 3.5,6, 7.5 and 11 for 2,3,4 and 8 way.

In most cable modem applications, we use a single 2-way so that the cable modem has only a minimum loss, then the TV\'s get put on the other side of the 2-way and split as many times as needed.

Here\'s a link to a typical splitter manufacturer where you can see the printed insertion loss of the various splitters.

Rj45 male to db9 male cable for ups

If you have a BackUPS CS, you are probably either using it with the USB cable that is supplied or with the 940-0128A supplied by APC, which permits running the UPS in dumb mode. By building your own cable, you can now run the BackUPS CS models (and perhaps also the ES models) using smart signalling and have all the same information that is available as running it in USB mode.
The jack in the UPS may be easily use a 8 pin RJ45 connector. It is easy to construct the cable by cutting off one end of a standard RJ45-8 ethernet cable and wiring the other end (three wires) into a standard DB9F female serial port connector.
PC Signal PC pin UPS Pin UPS signal RxD 2 2 TxD TxD 3 8 RxD GND 5 7 Ground FG Shield 4 Frame Ground Though these UPSes are USB UPSes, APC supplies a serial cable (typically with a green DB9 F connector) that has 940-0128A stamped into one side of the plastic serial port connector.
Here is suggested scheme of original 940-0128A cable

Checking voice mail remotely

for this model of phone, you perform the following:
1- Call the phone, wait for the machine to answer
----if the machine is on, it should answer within about 4 rings and begin playing your answering machine message
----if the machine is off, it will still answer after about 10 rings with a series of beeps
2- During the message (or beeps if it is off) press 0 and then enter your 2 digit PIN code. This should get you remote access to the phone. from there you can follow the menu structure that the phone tells you. If you never entered a PIN code, that's not a problem. the default code for this model of phone is 80.

you have about 15 seconds to enter a command, all commnds are two digit (01 through 10) and the digits must be entered within 2 seconds of eachother for the command to hold.

follow those directions and you'll be checking your messages in no time flat.
