I have two CyberPower UPS that are several years old and have run with no
issues bought them here
My freely acquired APC Back-UPS RS 1500 is showing
signs of dying so I'm
looking to replace it. I got it about 7-8 years ago and replaced the
batteries in 2014.
I'll need to run approx 500W of gear from it (headless server, cable modem,
router, 4-port switch). It's currently connected to the server via USB and
monitored with apcupsd I would to retain similar functionality.
Looking for your recommendations/thoughts?
Have looked at various things online, APC or CyberPower seem to be popular
and reliable. Has anyone had experience with CyberPower's software on linux?
For the curious it keeps switching to battery then back to mains. It
switches for about 1 to 2 secs, occasionally about 5 to 6, long enough for
the alarm to start to beep, then back. Passes self-test OK and is not
indicating batteries are bad. In the past 24 hours it has generated 11,761
power fail/power back events! There doesn't appear to be any mains supply
It's curious (and coincidental) that this has happened yesterday and today
with Hazlewood going off-line.
