MGE UPS - How to shut down PC but not the UPS?

MGE UPS - How to shut down PC but not the UPS?

MGE UPS - How to shut down PC but not the UPS?

(OP)
I've got a MGE Nova AVR UPS which I'm using the Personal Solution Pak software with.

In the event of a power failure I would like :

* The PC to shut down if the power isn't restored within 2 minutes
* The UPS to keep running until it reaches 30% battery reserve  (or power is restored) so it can run some other hardware that's more important than the PC

We're not worried about having to manually restart the computer after a power failure.

Any ideas?

Cheers, Antony.

RE: MGE UPS - How to shut down PC but not the UPS?


Your UPS and PC have to be connected, and Personal Solution Pac installed. Open the program, choose settings, shutdown criteria and shutdown configuration. AFAIK, in MGE Personal Solution Pac 2.51.02, you can only set 'Shutdown when timer reaches ? s' value, which would mean that you have to deduct 120 seconds from the 'Total remaining time' in order to get your PC to shut down after exactly two minutes. Than you have to set the value for the 'Interval between shutdown initiation and UPS shutoff', which you would again have to calculate in order to get to 30%.

Since I'm also a NOVA owner, can you tell me if the fan on yours works all the time, even when the power switch is set to off? Also, what 'Total remaining time' you have in Personal Solution Pac?
