Hi Gianluca,

 

PowerChute Business Edition (PCBE) only communicates to UPS units connected by serial or USB connections. If you wish to monitor the UPS with a network management card, you simply browse to it. If you want shutdown based on communications with the network management card, you'll want to use PowerChute Network Shutdown or PCNS.

 

Thanks,

Steve

You chose DCE as the product, are you trying to add these units to DCE or are you simply trying to use the shutdown software?

Hey Gianluca,

If it was sold from Schneider, you may want to look into helping him get his money back. If not, he should go back to his reseller. PCBE  can't monitor the NMC. Sorry
