  • I am currently using a 'Ultra ULT33045 Backup UPS 1500VA/900W w/AVR' with mine...though it is simply plugged into it and the USB connection is going to a PC for monitoring purposes.  Is that good enough for beta testing?

  • I signed up for the Grid Juction best test and this addin works great.  I ran a test on it last night.  This will be a must have addin for anyone that runs a UPS.  A dependable UPS is a must have when running a RAID array.

  • My guess is maybe he has not had a chance to check it.  He replied to mine I think within a day if I remember right.

  • I guess.  Strange though.

  • I applied sunday and received a response on wednesday, i read on the forum that a newer version will be available shortly I think these guys are just very busy - Paranoia!  The adding works well and I was actually impressed with it, the only problem i have is that my battery name looks like @$@#%@#$DFSDFG@#$.

  • I am sure they are busy.  So am I.  I applied again.  Just like to have a reply one way or the other.  Forum members should be courteous to one another!

  • If you applied once, I would give Alex a chance to repond. Applying multiple times is just more information he has to sort thru.

  • @TMG01
    I am sorry to hear that you have been having a hard time getting in touch with us; but I thank you for your interest and persistence on the matter.

    I believe I have identified you out of today’s beta request pool using your message ;0) and I think I was able to match you to your prior request (email differs) using your provided name.
    Please note that we are grateful to anyone who takes the time to request the beta version and we do not purposely exclude anyone from the beta. The current beta workflow via email is vastly inefficient and at times repetitive - I am actively looking into improvements that can be made and am open always to any suggestions or criticism.

    In case my emails are not finding their way to you, please add kentdome.com to your junk filter exclusion rules / white list.

    Thank you,

  • Thanks for the reply.  Got your emails today and have downloaded and installed the Add-In.  So far it looks great and works fine.  I'll let you know in a few days after it runs for awhile.  Thanks again.

    And .. what about  UPS without USB ?

    Mine is an APC Back-UPS pro 1400 : no USB, but an RS-232

    Thanks Smile

  • Sounds like a personal problem!

  • I have a Ultra ULT33046 that uses UPSMON but upsmon is not working under windows 10. So I can use any suggestion or help I can get. If this qualifies I would be happy to test it out. No upsmon means The battery backup is just a boat anchor now.
