APC Smart-UPS SU3000 ( Need Software )

Hello All;

  Could someone please inform me if there is a link to download the software for this Backup unit?
APC has discontinued this item, so there is no way to get it from them.

Any information is greatfully appreciated.

Thank You

I think I might have found it.
Will post back in here later after installation.

Are these the rack mount ones, maybe 3u, 160 pounds, 12 outlets?

I have two with Compaq branding and think they both came with a package of software that is filed somewhere around here.

Let me know...

  As for my previous posting.
I had found the software already, and is installed.
And running.
  Thank you for the information and the link.
But the link does not have any download, or purchase options.

Thank You
Would you mind posting the link?

I thought that those links were for downloads, but when I couldn't find my software packet, I went there to dl the software just to find out it wasn't really dowloads, just info on other hardware. The link names are even misleading, "PowerChute Business Edition Deluxe" is the name of the software I used to use to monitor my UPS', now it refers to a piece of hardware for $500...

I apologize for posting a bogus link, I should have dug a little deeper..

I just found this on APC's site:


I don't know where it was before...

Hello [tmenasco];

  That is the link that I downloaded the software from.
Where I made my post about, right before you posted here.

  And as for the other link.
Do not worry about it. It happens to us all.

Take Care
