Question about UPS Battery Backup Systems
This UPS has both serial and USB ports but came only with a USB cable.
What serial cable do I need? I know that UPSs typically use cables with non-standard pinouts. Can you detail the cable connections I need.
I can't use this with USB. Don't ask.
lol quite tempting. you can send it to me in singapore lol. Hi Andy, i assume theres a lot of UPS tech and Engineers in your area. or UPS service center. Good luck...

It is not a standard serial cable. It has different pin-outs.
You need to find the original cable or puchase one from HP.
I think they make serial cables where you can change the pin-outs but you would have to find one and figure out the correct pin-outs.
If this helps please vote for my solution.

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.
