you don't need to remove the beeper you can just connect it to a computer and run the APC UPS software and turn the beeper off in the settings

True but I had a vendetta against the little bastard. It had to go

Really interested in the "2- APC Smart-UPS (SUA3000RM2U)2700W/3000 VA"
Yeah all the batteries were removed when I got there. Lol those are the 2 Im planning to use in the power rack since there matching. BUT, I could go down there in next few days to see what he has. Ill look for the skinnier ones like the 2 u want since it would be lighter to send. Is there a wattage that you dont want like below 2k or? Also pm me your address or zip. You in florida?

Yeah, for using for using in conjunction with the house and replacing the power source, I don't want lower than 2kW.

Sent PM with address so you can get exact quote.

sounds interesting, I also have a few old APCs with old batteries down in the basement, maybe I'll 18650fy them later, too.

Keep up your work, I'll be on your channel Smile

i am interested in the mentioned russian firmware that let´s you set the voltages, could come in handy when moding my 750VA one that powers my pc

You guys got any links to the firmware and tools you are using for changing the settings in the big UPSs. I have a pair of those 3000RMXL and would love to get those working...
Hopefully I have helped expand your knowledge!

Here's how knurlgnar24 did it:





And here's a site that has a list of the SmartProtocols: http://www.scn.rain.com/~neighorn/docs/a...bible.htmlhttp://www.networkupstools.org/protocols/apcsmart.html

I incorrectly assumed that all of the APC UPS would output a pure sine wave. I only discovered today that my Back-UPS RS 1500 (about 950w 240v output) is modified sine wave.

For short term use as an actual UPS, I'm ok with that, but for powering equipment non stop, I'd really prefer a pure sine wave inverter. The 1500kv APC Smart UPS I have connected to my PC and large NAS does output pure sine wave according to the spec sheet. I'm going to swap it over and put the RS on my PC & NAS.

For the most part, most electronics will run off the modified sine wave as they convert the sine way into a flat wave (aka DC). So for them it doesn't matter. However, there are some electronics that does run on AC internally (I know several sound amps do this). So for computers, NAS, Wifi, phone chargers, and the like, modified is fine.
Now, the devices that "need" pure sine, are anything that runs AC motors. So, A/C, fridge, water pump, fans, electric water heater (though, this "may" work fine on mod wave), washer/dryer, basically anything that spins or has spinning parts in it. Because they use induction to turn, then need that pure wave.

When looking at most UPS specs, if they say "Sine Wave", that's pure wave. Otherwise they have to put "Modified" if it's not pure wave.
