Hello Russ,

I believe the same as Rick...APC BH500NET.  Nice little units, but I wish
they had an Ethernet switch built-in rather than just a port.  In all
honesty I don't think I'd want production traffic passing through a UPS
anyway, so the single port is fine.

Technical Parameters   
 Model: APC Back-UPS HS 500
 Serial number: AB0**********
 Firmware revision: l1
 Web firmware revision: l2
 UPS date of manufacture (mm-dd-yyyy): 06-18-2004  Battery replacement date
(mm-dd-yyyy): 11-15-2004

Current Status   
   Battery status: Charged 
   Last transfer to battery was caused by: Blackout 
   Result of last self-test is: None 
   
  Load on Battery Backup  
   Your battery backup is currently providing: 140 Watts
   Power Source: On-Line
   Battery Capacity: 100%
   Available Runtime: 12min


Guess I've had this one for a bit longer than I remember...looks like we
installed it 11-15-2004.  It's running a P4 MikroTik multi-interface router
along with several Trango radios at a remote HUB.

Best,


Brad

Brad -

What model hardware do you have, and what software version?

Thanks,

Great information Rick!  I like you idea of "gutting" the unit.

Our units are set with static IP addresses.  They are at least a year old
now...maybe they changed that to only allow DHCP in later revisions?

Best,


Brad

Brian,

We made an inexpensive Rebootable UPS out of an APC BH500NET.  It has a web
interface to reboot the system and Ethernet ports to connect to.  It was
designed as a cheap office/residential device.  Lowest price I can find
today is $95.  We gutted the components from the original case and put in a
weatherproof Carlon box.  It voids the warranty but gives you a nice little
cheap unit for those remote sites. I just looked at the runtime on this unit
and it says 53 minutes.  It is drawing 40 watts of consumption. 

One thing we did have to do is write firewall rules to only allow access
from our office IP range.  It seems as though the http security is lax and
is prone to hack attempts.  The other fault of this unit is that you cannot
assign it an IP address statically.  It will pick up a DHCP address only,
then you need to reserve that IP.  

It has it's drawbacks but for the money, it is a nice little tool.  I took
this up with APC support and they told me they had no intentions of
rewriting the software to make it more manageable.  I have included pictures
of our final product.  I'm not sure if this addresses your need but it is an
option.

I need help making a battery backup system.  I attached pictures of what I
have.  It's a power inverter, auto transfer switch, Air Conditioner type
disconnect, and a deep cycle marine battery.  I want to do something like
this at some remote sites.  What can I do better, more efficient, maybe
cheaper, or just different.  I want to know all the options.

Brian
