UPS Compatibility?

Recommended Posts

I recently plugged in an APC BR1000G UPS into my Xpenology box but find that Xpenology does not detect the UPS. Is there a compatibility list for UPS units or shouldn't they all be universal within their brand? Plugged in via USB. Thoughts?

I had 2 identical DSM 4.3 based systems, both using same Zotec/Atom MB. One plugged into APC UPS, one plugged into Cyberpower UPS. The system on APC did not recognise the unit but of course still worked but with no reporting of UPS system status or any outages.

The system on Cyberpower worked perfectly, reported all outages (surprising number of fluctuations in these parts) and reports how much battery power is left when running on UPS, issues warnings when running low etc.

I figured out the issue. The UPS unit is so tight in the closet space that I had to plug it in blind. Turns out what I plugged the USB cable into was not the USB port ... *doH!*
