Serial cable on UPS T1500H

Hi,

I recently obtained a second hand compaq T1500H UPS but unfortunately was supplied with the incorrect serial cable for connection to my server (looks like I was given a standard RS-232). Can't seem to have any luck locating another cable so far - does anyone know the pin assignments so I could make my own? Many thanks

Do you still have the UPS? I have some info...

Hi Terri,

Thanks for your response - yes I still have the UPS, and a reseller was kind enough to email me a pinout diagram to make my own cable, so I'm up and running! I appreciate you taking the time to offer some information.

I too have a UPS without a cable. If someone could post/email the pinouts I would be very happy. :)

Hi there,

For anyone wanting the pinout diagram, here it is! Good luck - works beautifully for me.

Re: Serial cable on UPS T1500H

Can anyone confirm this will also work for the T2400. I'm 99.9% sure it will because part number required for the T2400 is also 295245.

Re: Serial cable on UPS T1500H

Would it also be too much to ask for the similar user guide for the 2000 Series?? ;)

Cheers from Oz.

Re: Serial cable on UPS T1500H

Built this cable and LanSafe III & LanSafe 5 now talk to the T2400h

I am concerned that the unit keeps "bucking" down to 210V when it reports only 238V input? Guess I really need that user guide to set any switches for the output voltage from 230v to 240v??

Re: Serial cable on UPS T1500H

The T2000 series user guide is just over 1MB in size when zipped. The ITRC attachments are a maximum of 1 MB. I'd be happy to email this to anyone requesting it.

Re: Serial cable on UPS T1500H

I actually found the information and have attached an extract from the manual in PDF format.

Configuring the unit to 240VAC nominal solved the constant "buck"ing down to 210VAC for me.

Re: Serial cable on UPS T1500H

The following web page is all I could really find for this older UPS:

http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/proliantstorage/power-protection/software/hard-firmware.html?lang=en&cc=us

and if you have a T1500 G2, the current UPS software is HP Power Manager:

http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/proliantstorage/power-protection/software/power-manager/index.html

Otherwise it is the HP Rack and Power Manager.
Hope this helps.

Re: Serial cable on UPS T1500H

I have a T2400 and I tried the pinouts on the link earlier, being:

DB9-Male --- DB9-Female
(UPS) ------- (Computer)
. . 1 --------------- 3
. . 2 --------------- 2
. . 4 --------------- 5
. . 6 --------------- 7
. . . . . . . . . . . . /--- 4
. . . . . . . . . . . . \--- 6
- drain wire ------ shell

These are the Pin-outs as reported by one of Murray's friends
Here are the pinouts that I have reconstructed from one of the cables which came with the UPS's.
I have no idea if these cables work or not, but this is what the connections are like in the cable.

The cable is a Male DB9 to Female DB9 cable with 4 wires and a shield.
The male end goes to the UPS, the Female end to the host computer.

. . . . . . UPS ----------- HOST
. . . . . . (Male) -------- (Female)
Signal -- Pin ------------ Pin
. . RX . . . 1 ------------- 3
. . TX . . . 2 ----------/--- 2
. CTS . . . . . . . . . . . . \--- 8
. GND . .. 4 ------------- 5
. DCD . .. 8 ------------- 1
. RTS . . . . . . . . . . . . /--- 7
. .. RI . . . . . . . . . . . . \--- 9
SHIELD . Shell -------- Shell

Notes:
Pins 2 & 8 are connected together on the Host side.
Pins 7 & 9 are connected together on the Host side.
All the other pins on both ends of the cable are missing so can be ignored.

And I could nopt get either to work, any ideas?

Hello Mr. Smith,

I found this very old post of yours with a part of UPS T1500H manual. Since I cant find this Users manual anywhere on the web, could you (or anyone) post this complete manual for a download? I would really apreciate it. Thank you!
