Is there a way of Controlling an old APC UPS with a Raspberry Pi 3B using a USB 2.0 to RS232 Male DB9 Serial Cable?
There seems to be two apps that would be needed. One for the cable conversion from DB9 to USB and one for the actual control of the APC UPS? I can get the cable from Amazon but don't know if the software will work. It says it will work with:
PL-2303 (Chip H/HX/X) Linux driver for RedHat 7.3/8.0/9.0 Only.
NOTE: No need to install drivers for following:
- Linux Kernel 2.4.10 and above already includes built-in drivers for PL-2303H.
- Linux Kernel 2.4.31 and above already includes built-in drivers for PL-2303H, PL-2303XA/HXA/TA/RA and PL-2303HXD
