The 3-D PowerScope View, along with a new innovation, the ControlRoom View, takes the guesswork out of understanding UPS metering and status information. PowerScope is the default for viewing single-phase UPSs while ControlRoom serves as the default for three-phase UPSs. The third display format available is the History View, which allows users to review a year of UPS events at-a-glance, in a calendar format. The favorite default view can be changed at any given time via the LanSafe preferences menu.
Automatic Regional Settings
LanSafe incorporates Automatic Regional Setting Detection with local language support capabilities. Date, time, temperature and UPS receptacle graphics are automatically selected according to the operating system's regional settings. Measurements are displayed around the globe in formats users are familiar with.
With intuitive views and functions, a simplified installation procedure, and an array of powerful new features, comprehensive power management has never been easier.
How would you like to view your UPS today?
LanSafe offers three user- friendly, custom views for monitoring status, metering information and the internal workings of a UPS. Each view provides a different level of available data, allowing various user groups to select the most compelling and useful view for their specific needs.
The default view for single-phase UPSs is the 3-D PowerScope, which provides crisp, real-time animation of the power flow through the UPS components. Status and metering information is intuitively available at-a-glance, in a graphical format. UPS component topology is automatically detected depending on the UPS model used.
The ControlRoom View is the default view for three-phase UPSs. It provides a comprehensive listing of UPS metering data including inputs, outputs, battery and UPS status information. Color-coded LED status indicators draw attention to UPS alarms.
The LanSafe History View provides a 7x24x365 visual representation of the system event log in a calendar format. UPS events can easily be reviewed by year, at-a-glance. Color-coded dates display power events that have occurred in the system.
It has never been easier to review historical power problems: what happened, when it happened, how severe the event was, as well as how often it has annually reoccurred. The user may focus on any calendar date to obtain information on the event time, along with a description of the problem.
Stealth Mode Operation - The invisible sentinel
The Eaton-exclusive Stealth Mode Operation feature enables LanSafe to run invisibly in the background without visual traces. This is particularly useful when integrating LanSafe into a point-of-sale (POS) system, automatic teller machine (ATM) or other environment in which user-awareness of LanSafe is not an option.
When enabled, the user will not see any UPS alarm popups on local ATM/POS computer monitors due to power problems. However, system administrators monitoring the ATM/POS network still receive remote SNMP alarms to their network management systems.
Cost Savings Calculator - Discover the bottom line
The Cost Savings Calculator (patent-pending) feature is used to determine the amount of money saved by the UPS due to prevented downtime. With this innovative new tool, LanSafe will do the math and generate reports using statistical data gathered from that specific UPS, based on the number of power failures and blackout duration. Calculations can easily be exported to spreadsheets, email and other applications. The user, according to their environment, enters the base costs for calculations.
Automatic regional settings detection
LanSafe incorporates automatic regional settings detection with local language support capabilities. Date, time, temperature and UPS receptacle graphics are automatically selected according to the operating system's regional settings. Measurements are displayed around the globe in the formats users are familiar with. Any of the detected settings can be overridden manually.
