does your message mean that it is correctly configured to send emails right?email has arrived .... but only when I unplugged the usb cable_________________________Let's move on to the second questionWe must understand perfectly the logics of shutdown of the APC, because we will install them on industrial servers.We need the APC to shut down the server it is connected to (Windows Server 2016) 3 minutes before it runs out.Do you confirm the screenshot?Another thing ... is it possible to test the auto switch-off procedure?Thank you
I The screenshot show that the OS needs 3 minutes to power down. I recommend increasing the runtime limit to 5 minutes to allow a 2 minute buffer. Also you should add a minimum battery return requirement. The requirement should be determined by the amount of time the system needs to boot and to power down.
In the above example I add a 7 minute delay. I based this on the system needing 2 minutes to boot, 3 minutes to power down and added a 2 minute buffer. The reasoning to allow the system to safely boot up and power down in the event there is a power outage prior to the UPS fully charging.
