The article is a little dated, so you may want to open a case with APC regarding your specific model.

Did you have a chance yet to read the APC knowledgebase articles in the post above?  It looked like it had detailed iSeries instructions when I reviewed it.

The iSeries has a basic UPS Shutdown process built-in.  There are two system values, QUPSDLYTIM a(UPS Delay Time) and QUPSMSGQ 9UPS Message Queue) that control how the iSeries responds to a UPS power failure signal:

Looks like you need a special cable from APC:

Hope that helps.

I don't know that I've implemented a solution with this particular UPS before, but I have written programs that monitor the QUPSMSGQ and perform an orderly shutdown.  

Jim Sloane's excellent (though a bit pricey if you have a big system)  TAATOOLS utilties include a nice UPS Monitoring utility, too:

There are also free resources and sample code for writing power-handling programs on the web (Google "QUPSMSGQ" and  "QUPSMSGQ example"):
