UPS serial interface cables that provide direct communication between UPSs and desktops, workstations, and servers.
APC USB cable - 6 ft is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by elsalty from $40 USB cableThe cable works fine, but the price is completely ridiculous. Most other UPS brands have a USB connection on their UPS so you can just use any old USB cable. However APC uses the very rare 10 pin RJ50 connector on the end of an otherwise standard USB cable and increases the price by 400%. Ridiculous. This is enough reason to look to other UPS brands.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DocLizardo from NO technicalsI am unimpressed with this level of support. Why not a simple schematic for such a simple cable? When in Timbuktu, I cannot wait for a new factory one - as nice as that might be. Box lable says Serial /USB so what can I hook it to? Notes say not to use external USB adapter but what if it's powered from the same AC? No manual for the PowerChute SW so no help there. Even a detailed tech manual for the UPS connectors would be nice - no cigar - clearly in only the selling biz, not the support biz too - ONE star.
