The UPS Interface Expander (AP9607) is an American Power Conversion (APC) SmartSlot accessory that provides two additional computer interface ports for your APC UPS equipped with a SmartSlot accessory slot. 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 three network servers or other devices.
Since the computer interface port of the UPS remains available while using the Interface Expander, it is 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. The Interface Expander draws power from the UPS. It monitors the UPS and reports power conditions (e.g., On Battery, Low Battery, On Line) to all attached devices.
