UPS Power Manager v. 1.02-30.C. (7/1/2006, Maison Anglais) Readme/What's new
Using the UPS power manager =========================== The following files need to be present in order that the application works forups.exe forups.msg <something>.dll picures\<something>.bmp Supported UPS devices ===================== The dummy.dll driver currently supports no UPS devices at all. It is provided to give you an idea of what is supposed to happen, and to encourage you to have a go at your own UPS driver. The megatec.dll driver currently supports megatec compatible UPS devices only. These include:- - Fenton Technologies models: - PowerPal L series - PowerOn - PowerPure - Effekta MI/MT/MH models (2502 cable) - PowerGuard PG-600 - PowerCom SMK-800A, ULT-1000 - Giant Power MT650 - UNITEK ALPHA 500 IC - Unitek Alpha 1000is - SuperPower HP360, Hope-550 This driver implements the Megatec protocol, so other Megatec hardware will probably work with it. Commandline parameters ====================== /d<driver> Select the driver dll to use, for example /dmegatec.dll /p<port> Select the port to be used to talk to the UPS, for example /pcom1 /m Minimise the UPS power manager on startup. /w<time> Wait for <time> in ms before startup. If <time> is not specified, wait for 1000ms. Used when the application is started before the system is ready. Installation ============ Connect your UPS device to a serial port. Run the application. If you are certain about both the port and the driver, you can save yourself a lot of waiting by entering the values the first time that you start the UPS power manager. For example 'forups.exe /dmegatec.dll /pcom2' Please wait! If the application times out, select another port and click the restart button. Please wait! If the application times out, select another port and click the restart button. ....and so on. Once it works, you can make yourself a shortcut icon on the desktop by running install.cmd
