How to manage multiple USB connected UPS.

This was originally posted on APC forums on 5/29/2013


I have multiple UPSPro units connected to my laptop docking station, all via USB connections.  All three are properly checked in via Device Manager.  I only have Personal Edition software.   When I start the management software, I can only talk to and manage the first one.  Is there a way to make it talk to the others?

For a Back UPS, unfortunately no. Most users (when these were designed anyway) have one computer per UPS and so the software can only manage one UPS at a time and only supports one instance.

We only currently support this (interface expanders) via serial on larger UPSs such as Smart UPS.
