    Is that the serial data cable to connect an APC UPS to a server?

    It's one of those yes.

    There are 2 types a smart one which you normally get with a ups and a simple one.

    The port expanders etc... use simple signalling and I forgot to buy one.

    I'll have a look, we have two here than are like 3 years old and we're moving to a new site so I think they're gonna be binned. The batteries are shot I think though thus freeing up the cables.

    Hang on...

    Make sure you get the right cable, if you use a 'standard' serial cable, it will turn the UPS off with no warning! Learnt that one tha hard way!

    Yup hence why I specified the part number which will be stamped on one end.

    A simple ups cable should also be grey.

    You've just reminded me about one of the items on my to-do list..

    Anyone got a supplier for APC cables like this... I've had a heck of a time finding any..

    APC have them listed.

    If you need a smart signalling cable then let me know as I have several of those spare.

    I need two serial cables for the Smart 1400 and 1500 model UPS's so if you do have spares that'd be a big help..
