My blackout buster came with what appears to be a serial cable - is there some sort of software that sends events from the UPS to the PC?

Only one side of the outlets work...


From the User Manual:

“OVERLOAD/CHECK BATTERY” LED: this red LED lights continuously after a self-test to
indicate the capacity of the battery-supported outlets has been exceeded. To clear the overload, unplug some of your equipment from the battery-supported outlets; then use the ON/OFF/TEST button to run a Self-Test. If the UPS continues to detect an overload, remove more equipment and repeat the self test until successful.

CAUTION! Any overload that is not corrected by the user immediately following a self-test may cause the UPS to shut down and cease supplying output power in the event of a blackout or brownout.

The LED flashes to indicate the battery needs to be recharged or replaced. If the LED flashes (and a continuous alarm sounds) during a prolonged blackout or brownout, the UPS’s batteries are nearly out of power; you should save files and shut down your equipment immediately.

If the LED flashes following a UPS self-test (after the UPS is turned ON), it may indicate that the battery needs to be replaced. Allow the UPS to recharge continuously for 12 hours; then use the ON/OFF/TEST button to run a Self Test.

If the LED continues to flash, contact Tripp Lite for service. Should your UPS require battery replacement, visit Tripp Lite on the web at www.tripplite.com/support/battery/index.cfm to locate the specific replacement battery for your UPS.

Hope this helps!

Advanced power options settings UPS for blackout buster?software


I have to answer this question with just plain old common sense. Get a new one! This is crazy. If you get a new one, you will have a better, more upto date and something you can handle with todays OS and obviously new batteries. That is too old to mess with. I fixed a powerware once and the plastic was falling apart and the PC board was held together with a rubber band. Not worth it.

Less back up time


I found the following on APC's web-site for the APC Back-UPS, this will hopefully fix the problem:
You can also perform a manual runtime calibration. This could be done if you have changed your equipment load or battery. Stop the PowerChute software from running; disconnect the serial cable between the computer and UPS. Next unplug the UPS from the wall and let it run on battery until it reaches low battery. Once it reaches low battery plug it back into the wall outlet and let it recharge. Recharge time can take up to 4 hours.

585avr isn't working w/vista OS,


While the 585AVR is not designed for Vista, it should work. You will need to use the CyberPower serial to USB cable, and the most recent version of PowerPanel Personal Edition software. You can download the latest software @ http://www.cyberpowersystems.com/software/PPPE_V_1.2.2_Setup.exe
If you have any questions, or need the CyberPower serial to USB cable, please contact CyberPower Systems Technical Support at 877-297-6937, M-F, 8-5 Central.

How to replace the battery in my Black Out Buster B6U


Not hard to replace battery. It is a SLA (sealed lead acid) 12 volt 7AmpHour. Runs $20 to $30. To remove just unscrew 4 screws on the back and 4 screws on the side. The front panel snaps out from the bottom use a flat blade to push up the tab from the opening on the face plate. The unit will operate without the battery just no backup.
