The MultiSlot HID unit enables management of your UPS by connecting it directly to the network. MultiSlot is an extension module for up to
four communications cards (available separately). The MultiSlot module may be connected to a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply, also available separately) in either of two connection modes: direct connection to the UPS BUS port; connection via a U-Talk/Basic acquisition card (available separately).
Using one of the two connection modes, the MultiSlot module acquires measurements, status information and alarms from the UPS and transmits the information to the installed communications cards. The communications cards provide the interface for user access to the information via a wide range of communications protocols.
The currently available protocols are: SNMP 10BaseT; JBus RS232 or RS485; U-Talk RS232 (ASCII-type protocol, property of MGE UPS SYSTEMS); Basic (status information coded using dry contacts).
