Share-UPS (AP9207) is an American Power Conversion (APC) accessory that provides seven additional computer interface ports for your APC UPS. It allows the UPS to work in conjunction with your power management software to provide safe system shutdown in extended power outages for up to eight network servers or other devices. If necessary, Share-UPS can shut down the UPS when all attached devices have confirmed OS shutdown. The first interface port makes it possible to provide advanced UPS and power management functions to all protected devices. You can provide power management with APC PowerChute© plus software and UPS accessories such as the APC Web/SNMP Management Card (AP9606) for network connectivity and the Call-UPS©II (AP9608) remote management device. Share-UPS draws power from the Computer Interface port of the UPS or, with an optional AC power adapter (AP9505[i]) not included), from an external source. It monitors the UPS and reports power conditions (e.g., On Battery, Low Battery, On Line) to all attached devices.
