1Overview

The Mitsubishi NetCom SNMP/Web card monitors one UPS attached to an Ethernet network. The UPS can be monitored through a Network Management System (NMS) or through a web browser. In addition, the Alarm Viewer utility program provides monitoring of multiple UPSs through a single console application.



2Setting up the Card

Most of the configuration parameters for the Mitsubishi NetCom SNMP/Web card can be set using the web interface. The initial network settings must be made by connecting a Windows computer to the card using the included configuration cable.


There are two ways to perform the initial configuration of the card:

2.1NetCom Setup Utility

The NetCom Setup Utility is the recommended tool for performing the initial configuration of the card.




  1. Install the NetCom utilities from the CD to your Microsoft Windows system.

  2. Select Start->Mitsubishi->NetCom Setup.

  3. The NetCom Setup program will provide step-by-step instructions on properly setting up the card.

  4. Remove power from the card.

  5. Set the configuration dip switch 1 back into the off (up) position.

  6. Connect one end of the communications cable to the UPS and the other end to the NetCom device port.

  7. Reapply power to the card.

Your card is now configured and ready for use.



2.2HyperTerminal Setup

The NetCom card can also be configured using the Microsoft Windows HyperTerminal application.




  1. Connect one end of the configuration cable to your computer and the other end to the NetCom configuration port (labeled “Terminal”).

  2. Open a HyperTerminal session by clicking on

Start->Programs->Accessories->Hyperterminal>HyperTerminal

  1. Select an available communications port from the drop-down list.

  2. Select the following port settings:

    • Bits per second: 9600

    • Data bits: 8

    • Parity: None

    • Stop bits: 1

    • Flow Control: None

  3. Set the NetCom configuration switch (labeled “1”) to the on (down) position.

  4. Remove power from the card by pulling out the power connector.

  5. Restore power to the card by reinserting the power connector.

  6. The NetCom menu should display in your HyperTerminal window.



2.2.1Setup Menu

There are five available menu options.



2.2.1.1Network Settings

The network settings menu option allows you to configure the initial network settings that must be configured prior to using the card. This option should be used to set the IP address, network mask, and network gateway for the card.


If you are unsure of these settings, please ask your network administrator for assistance.
This menu option will also allow you to set the HTTP user name and password required for logging in from a web browser.
Note: These are the only parameters that must be set before the card can be put on the network for use. All other parameters can be set through the web browser interface.

2.2.1.2Network Management System Settings

The Network Management System (NMS) Settings menu option allows you to enter the NMSs that are allowed to access the card. To allow access, enter the IP address and community string (SNMP password) for the NMS. You can choose to allow read only (allow SNMP GETs) or read/write access (allow SNMP GETs and SETs).



2.2.1.3SNMP Trap Receiver Settings

The SNMP Trap Receiver Settings menu option allows you to enter the systems which you wish to receive SNMP traps (alarms) when a UPS event occurs. To set up a trap receiver, enter the IP address of the system and the community string. To enable the NetCom card to send traps to this receiver, select enable. You can also enable or disable trap authentication. If enabled, the trap receiver will receive warnings of unauthorized SNMP activities, such as an SNMP GET from an IP address or community string not defined in the NMS settings.



2.2.1.4Date/Time Settings

The Date/Time Settings menu option allows you to set the date and time for the card as well as the time zone. The most critical of these is the time zone. The time synchronization utilities provided with the NetCom card allow you to synchronize time on all cards to that of your local system. The time zone will set the correct time on the card based upon your local time.



2.2.2Saving the NetCom Settings

When all configuration settings have been made, the last step is to exit the setup menu. You will be asked whether you want to save the changes that you have made. Select 2 to save the settings to the card. The card will inform you when the settings have been successfully saved.


To enable the card for use, first remove power from the card. Set the configuration dip switch 1 back into the off (up) position. Connect one end of the communications cable to the UPS and the other end to the NetCom device port. Reapply power to the card.
Your card is now configured and ready for use.

3Timer Update Utility

The NetCom card does not contain a real-time clock. The Timer Update Utility, included on the NetCom Utilities CD, allows the cards to keep more accurate time because they will be updated at regular intervals based on the local system time.


Select Start->Mitsubishi->Timer Update to start the timer application. An icon will be added to the system tray. Double-click on the icon to bring up the timer update configuration screen.


  1. Enter the range of IP addresses of cards for which you want to have the time updated. If you want a single card updated you can leave the second IP address blank.

  2. Press the Start Discovery button. This will populate the adapter list with information on the available NetCom cards. The following information will be displayed for each card:




  • IP address

  • Current time

  • Time zone

  • Daylight savings time




  1. Choose which SNMP cards that you want to update. Multiple cards can be selected using a combination of your mouse and the shift or control keys.

  2. Choose the timer interval that will be used to update the selected SNMP cards.

  3. Press the Start Timer Update button.

The program will update the card based upon your selected interval. Closing the Timer Update utility does not stop the updating of the card. It will continue to run in the background.


Once the update process has started you can let it run in the background. To stop the update process you must exit the program by right-clicking on the system tray icon and choosing exit.

4Alarm Viewer

The Alarm Viewer Utility, included on the NetCom Utilities CD, is a Microsoft Windows application that allows you to view alarms from multiple NetCom cards from a single console application. The Alarm Viewer has two components, a trap collector service and a viewer application.



4.1Mitsubishi NetCom Trap Receiver Service

When you install the Alarm Viewer it will install a service called Mitsubishi NetCom Trap Receiver. This service will be automatically started when you install the Alarm Viewer. This service collects and processes SNMP traps from the NetComs. It requires the Microsoft SNMP Trap Service to be installed and running. If you do not see this service in your service list you will need to install it from your operating system CD.


In order to receive traps from the NetCom, the IP address of the system running the NetCom Trap Receiver service must be entered as one of the NetCom trap receivers. This can be configured through the NetCom Agent Setup page.

4.2Alarm Viewer Console

Select Start->Mitsubishi->Alarm Viewer to start the Alarm Viewer application.


The top portion of the screen will display a list of active alarms. The bottom portion of the screen will display a history of all alarms. You can hide the alarm history by clicking on the <<<< Hide History button. The alarms can be deleted by selecting one or more alarms and clicking the Delete Selected Alarms button.


Select Alarm History->Reports from the menu to display the report screen.

A summary report will display the number of each type of alarm that occurred for the selected locations during the selected time period. A detailed report will display a list of each alarm and when they occurred. The reports can be written to a text file or sent directly to the printer.

5Remote Shutdown

The Remote Shutdown application, included on the NetCom Utilities CD, allows the NetCom to initiate an operating system shutdown on up to 10 different computers. The Remote Shutdown application must be installed on each computer that is to be remotely shut down. The Remote Shutdown application has two components, a remote shutdown service and a setup application.



5.1Remote Shutdown Service

The Remote Shutdown service will be automatically started when you install the software. It requires the Microsoft SNMP Trap Service to be installed and running. If you do not see this service in your service list you will need to install it from your operating system CD.


In order to receive traps from the NetCom, the IP address of the system running the NetCom Trap Receiver service must be entered as one of the NetCom trap receivers. This can be configured through the NetCom Agent Setup page.

5.2Remote Shutdown Setup Utility

The Remote Shutdown setup utility allows you to configure how the Remote Shutdown service will function on your computer. To run the setup program, select Start->Mitsubishi->Remote Shutdown.


There are two parameters that must be set:


  • On Battery Shutdown Time – the amount of time (in seconds) to wait from the time the NetCom indicates that the UPS in operating on battery power until the operating system should initiate shutdown.




  • Low Battery Shutdown Time – the amount of time (in seconds) to wait from the time the NetCom indicates that the UPS in operating under a low battery condition until the operating system should initiate shutdown.

When either the On Battery or Low Battery shutdown time expires, the operating system will begin to shut down. If the condition clears (UPS returns to utility power or the battery condition is no longer low) prior to the expiration of the countdown timer, the timer will be stopped and the operating system will not be shut down.



6Using the NetCom Card

From your browser, enter the IP address of the NetCom card. Enter a valid Username and Password (set when you configured the card). You will see the UPS Status page.



The UPS Status page displays the overall status of the UPS. The most important variables are displayed (Location, Input Voltage, Input Frequency, Battery Capacity, Output Voltage, Output Load and Output Source), as well as a list of active alarms.

The Identification page provides UPS identification information.


The Variables page displays a list of UPS variables and values.


The Event Log page displays a list of recent UPS events.



The Agent Setup page allows you to configure the NetCom card.
