SMT1500J to 120v
This was originally posted on APC forums on 9/9/2016
Someone just sold me a SMT1500J and assured me it would operate fine at 120v. Well, as you probably know and now I do, this is not the case. The upper threshold is maxed at 114v so it will not kick over to AC, only stay on battery (which was charged). Two things, one - can I change this from accessing the console via hyperterminal? Two - can I upload a SMT1500 firmware to the unit to make this work at 120v (assuming the internals are the same)? I know the firmware file is the same file which means it would take quite a bit of effort to make it think it is not a J model but I'd appreciate any insight.
