    APC UPS Keeps Beeping

    Hello All,

    I have APC Smart UPS Smart-UPS RT 10000VA 230V, And Simply it keeps beeping and I dont have much experience in it, So I can tell you what it does, It Makes a discontinuous beeping sound, and flashing, Does anyone knows how to make this annoying beeping sound to stop ?!, Or maybe the cause of this case?

    Does it have network monitering or a USB port that you can hook up to at this will give you more information. It is probably unstable voltage like over or undervoltage conditions.

    Does it have an ethernet port you can setup to log onto the unit.

    If not connect on the serial port and see what it's complaining about.

    It’s hard to say without knowing the pattern of beeping. Could it be you keep losing power for short amounts of time? Do any of the lights change when beeping happens? Check no power cables have come lose. How old is the unit?

    if its not a problem with the mains its normally a battery issue. There should be a simplistic readout on the device look for red or amber lights.

    I had this with an APC UPS for a while. It would bleep rapidly for about a minute every hour or so. It had lost connection to the monitoring server. I recommend checking your servers for APC software on your servers.

    It needs to be plugged in to a network with a DHCP server so that it can pick up an IP, you can then use the setup tool which you can find on the APC site to find out the address and configure it. You can also set the IP via a special ARP and ping command combination or use the serial port to configure it.

    Maybe take a photo or small video of it and post it here to augment the description, may be easier to get a definative answer. I'd still look at setting up the network monitering though as this will give you more full usage includign server shutdown on power fail rather than just delaying a hard shutdown.

    Audible Alarm Alarm when on battery : distinctive low battery alarm : overload continuous tone alarm

    From here

    Also, this is the user manual.


    The X light means there's an internal fault. There's a troubleshooting section in the manual which should help.
