Build a customized UPS management strategy with
hot-swappable Symmetra RM accessories
Symmetra RM will do more than protect your investment; it will protect your
career. Optional accessories and power management software provide the ability
to manage your network from anywhere in your datacenter or anywhere in the
world, and can be hot-swapped, as needed.
||Symmetra RM's flash upgradeable Power View puts all
power and UPS information at a system administrators fingertips in a
menu based format available in several languages. Functions of Power
View include status reporting, setup, UPS control and event logging.
Four LED indicators report the operational status of the Symmetra RM
indicating whether the unit is running on line, on battery, on bypass or
experiencing an internal fault condition.
Management Card (included)
Management Card, which ships with Symmetra RM products, provides
full remote monitoring, control, and configuration of the unit via open
standards protocols including HTTP, SNMP, and Telnet. In the event of an
extended power outage, it can command a virtually unlimited number of
systems running PowerChute Network Shutdown to gracefully shut down,
while all communications occur over the network.
Network Shutdown (included)
Network Shutdown provides reliable, graceful, unattended shutdown of
multiple computer systems over a network, upon low battery warning. It
communicates across the network via the included Web, SNMP, and Telnet
Management Card and can be quickly and easily configured via a Web
browser. The included CD contains support for Microsoft Windows NT,
Windows 2000, Novell NetWare, IBM AIX, Sun Solaris, HP-UX, and Linux.
Other OSes are available for download at APCs website.

network, administrators can use a network management station (NMS) or
Web browser to power, shut off or reboot equipment. MasterSwitch™ cuts
service costs and eases your power management burden.

UPS settings even when LAN communications are not available. The Out-of-Band
Management Card can even page you whenever UPS power alerts occur.
