Are these setting s correct?

This question was originally posted by Paul on APC forums on 7/22/2019


I think I have it set correctly but wanted to post here to be sure. I want the computer to run for one hour on battery, then initiate a shutdown. Do these settings look ok? I'm concerned because at the bottom it says "after 0 seconds the operating system shutdown starts"

What if I choose "Do not shut down when power fails" and then under "Operating system and application shutdown" I put 600 seconds? Will it run until there are 600 seconds left on battery and then shutdown the machine?

When a Power Outage occurs:
The shutdown process will not start until the remaining UPS runtime falls below the combined time configured for Application and Operating System shutdown. If you set the OS shutdown to 600 seconds when the runtime falls below 600 seconds a shutdown will be triggered.

Hi,

PowerChute will initiate OS shut down after the UPS has run on battery for 1 hour. Power to outlet group 1 will be cut 5 minutes after the OS shut down begins. Assuming the OS will power down in less than 5 minute the setting are good.
