PowerChute and Mac OS X

This question was originally posted by Mark on APC forums on 11/10/2007


Using Mac OS X (10.4.10) how do I tell my BR 1500's battery level?

Is that possible using PowerChute Personal Edition Version1.3.4?

TIA

Thank you.

I have a secondary UPS connected to my Mac via a hub on the same USB bus.

I'm trying to find out which UPS is being shown in my menu bar's energy saver feedback, the APC or the secondary UPS.

That's why I want to know how to use PowerChute or the OS X Energy Saver system preference to reflect battery level.

How do I tell the readings apart? IOW which is the reading corresponding to APC and which to the second system?

TIA!

Hello,

Is there a specific reason you have two UPS systems communicating with one OS? The OS is only going to see the first one that is connected, and may cause intermittent erroneous messages. The easiest way to tell which one is communicating is to pull the communication cable on one first, and then see if you get a communication lost message.
