My System Specs

No guarantees but this is the link I came up with through google.....

APC USB cable schematic pinout and wiring @ pinoutsguide.com

Does anybody who made these back in the day have the pinouts saved?

Edit: if you read through the comments for that link the critical (and apparently not obvious) key is to use RJ50 not RJ45

Unhappy

Hi Guys

I can't make this working i hope you can help...

Since here in Benelux the RJ50 plugs is impossible to find i decided to open up the UPS and solder directly on my 550 motherboard.

I found different pinouts though:

APC BackUPS CS/ES smart signalling cable распиновка и описание @ pinouts.ru
APC USB cable AP9827 : Pinout cable and connector diagrams-usb, serial rs232,rj45 ethernet, vga, parallel, atx, dvi...


I tried the first one and is not working...and i am not too sure about the pinout it looks like 1 and 10 pins are not correct...

Anyone can tell me where PIN 1 is on the Rj50 and where the 4 USB wires need to go?

Without USB the UPS is pretty useless to me...

Default Adding a USB-B connector to your UPS

In the above images, the first (top) image of the cable shows the correct pin numbers and colors.

But the second (lower) image of the female connectors has an INCORRECT pinout list on the left side. It should read down from 10 to 1. Meaning 10=Green, 1=Red.

If you wanted to add a female USB - B connector to your UPS (and not have to find a RJ50 to make a new cable) you can hardwire the connectors using this diagram:


Of course that being said, brand new cables are available on eBay for about $6, so it may not be worth your time.

Have fun!
