layan borak ngan technical support...
Jimmy: Hello, e1
e1: hi jimmy..
Jimmy: Good afternoon..
e1: sorry just now, I'm chatting with chris
e1: good afternoon..
Jimmy: In summary..what u r looking 4 is a UPS that can powered yr 4 PC and can give abt 20 mins of backup time and
Jimmy: have auto-shutdown feature..right ?
e1: one more thing is there any smaller size
e1: because 5U is quite big maa
Jimmy: The UPSs that meet your reuirements requires external batteries so that is why they are a bit big..
Jimmy: How many Us can you spare in yr rack ?
Jimmy: If there is not enough Us space in the rack, try to opt of a standing unit.
e1: ok if I want to add 5 PC more with 450W each one...can that UPS support to load it
Jimmy: Nope..if u add another 5 PCs.then u required a much higher Va capacity UPS,,eg A APC Silcon SL10 Kva UPS
Jimmy: However as yr va rating goes up, the UPS's electrical requirements also goes up..so in the example above
Jimmy: u required a 3 phase power supply..
Jimmy: This means u will hv a single UPS, controlling all the 10 PCs and will shutdown their O/S when power fails..
e1: i think I have an idea.. how about I just put the UPS on the top of the shelves
Jimmy: 1 big UPS to all..manage & supply power ..
e1: so my rack will be enough space..
e1: because stand unit can't fit my rack any more
Jimmy: nope..strongly not recomemded ..the weight of the UPS is too much for yr rack..
e1: what is the weight?
Jimmy: It is very heavy..totally not recomemded at all..
e1: ok if I want to use that 5U.. what is the price...
Jimmy: If there isn't enough space, please buy a APC rack + the UPS to meet yr requirements ..
e1: and what is the model no.
Jimmy: For prices, please refer to our authorised resellers.
e1: just now u mentioned about the auto shutdown..
e1: let say we have 4 PC so we must connect what type of Cable.. it's serial or USB
Jimmy: U can use either serial or UTP type.. either way, u required to get extra accessories..
e1: so at the back of UPS have 4 port of serial or UTP port. is it?
Jimmy: For serial u need cables and AP9207...for network just the AP9617
e1: these cable come with UPS or.. buy separately
Jimmy: Buy separately..
e1: so all 4 PC must have 2 Network card if I want use network...
e1: so I need to buy 4 Serial in order to use auto shutdwon feature is it..
Jimmy: no..if u use the network connectivity, only 1 NMC , AP9617 will do
e1: I'm confused..
e1: only one NMC...
e1: how about the rest of the PC
Jimmy: That NMC will communicate with the rest of yr PCs..thru network
e1: so Only One PC need 2 NIC.. and the rest will connect in the LAN is it?
Jimmy: Npe..the NMC is slotted into the UPS and is then connnected to the network..
e1: so that CAT5 cable will connect to Switch
e1: then we will control through LAN..
Jimmy: Yes, u r right ..
e1: so how about the IP..
Jimmy: When u get the card, the manual will guide u on how to use & configure the card., etc
e1: ok...thanks for all you information
Jimmy: The user manual will also guide u on the card usage, configuration, etc so that u can use the card
e1: i will discuss with my boss first
e1: ok Thanks.. Bye.
Jimmy: You're most welcome..
Jimmy: Bye & hv a nice & productive day..
e1: ok BABAi..
e1: btw what is the model for that UPS
e1: I would like to ask the Price to reseller
e1: ok thanks
