I'm not sure at all what model the backup battery i have is but it is made by APC and it says 500 on the front of it. I was wondering if there was a way i can get it to stop beeping every 30 seconds or so when its unpluged from an outlet. Because i would kinda like to use it as a battery. So is there any way i can get it to stop beeping at least until it is about to die
Look for the little white sticker, that looks like a bar code. You should see two letters, either BE, BK, BF, or BR followed by some numbers. If you can find that number I could help you see if theres a way to stop the beeping.
Most UPS's have the ability to stop the beeping using the Powerchute Personal Edition Software. The easiest way to check, is to install the software and check under Configuration>Notification. This is a setting that is stored on the UPS EEPROM so you can remove the software after making the change. Windows is the only OS that would support this change in the software as other OS's like Mac OS do not have the ability to make the change.
ok heres a picture and as you can see the outlets are on the top. So i look at the bottom and it tells me the output model which is 350: 120V 2.9A. 60Hz, 200W.
It also says output model 500: 120V 4.2A,60 Hz, 300W right underneath that first one. Then under neath that it says total output current 12A.
So i hope that helps
Powerchute Personal Edition is software that you download to your computer. You need to make sure that the Back UPS you own communicates over USB. Before installing the software, you need to make sure that the USB cable is connected from your Back UPS to your computer. As long as its connected, you can download the software, install it, and once installed, you may have the ability to disable the beeper.
You can download the software from the following link.
