Network management card for SUA2200I 230V smart-ups

This was originally posted on APC forums on 5/21/2014


Hi,

I bought Smart-UPS 2200VA 230V APC UPS recently. I want to connect it to switch directly using a network management card. My ups already has a smart slot , i'm trying to choose correct card to order.

I'm between those cards, AP9617,AP9618,AP91619,AP9630,AP9631. All those cards work with my ups or which of those do?  I will go for probably the cheapest used one.

Bonus question smile

My kill-a-watt shows (let's say) load of 400W true power because in my country we pay for true power. But this load has a 500W of apparent power.

So, if i connect this load to my ups, how does it calculate remaining  runtime? Using 400W of true power or 500W of apparent power?

Ups load in the web interface shows true or apparent power?

Thanks

For your UPS, the UPS reports the higher of VA and Watts as a percentage, and uses this for its run time prediction algorithm. Typically, VA is always higher.

Hello,

SUA2200I will support any of those Network Management Card models you mentioned. AP9630/31 are current models though so if you want all of the latest features and functionality, go for one of those. The other three are discontinued so we don't develop any firmware for them or fix bugs anymore.

On your bonus question, let me double check and get back to you. Watts and VA should always be extremely close and I can think of a reason for multiple answers - watts, VA, or whatever is higher.
