Mounting bracket for 9012G pressure switches


Is there a mounting bracket available for 9012G switches?

Product Line:

9012G Industrial Pressure Switches


US Product


Switches may need to be mounted in locations where the standard mounting holes are not usable.


Some of the 9012G switches can be ordered with an alternate back which has different mounting holes.  One would need to use form F to gain this backing on a standard switch.  This option is only available on select models and cannot be ordered separately.  Dimensions are attached.

The replacement for ACW-1 pressure switch is 9012GAW5
 9012GAW5 pressure switch 9012G - adjustable scale - 2 thresholds - 3.0 to 150 psig
pressure switch 9012G - adjustable scale - 2 thresholds - 3.0 to 150 psig

For more information see;

Is the 9013F compatible with Skydrol?

Is the 9013F compatible with Skydrol?

Product Line:
Pressure switches


Material comparability

It is not recommended for Skydrol.  Nitrile is the standard material used in diaphragm for the 9013F devices. The 9012G has an option to use ethylene propylene, form Q3, for the diaphragm.

Note that 9012G switches are control devices and cannot support inductive loads directly, but require an interposing contactor.

Is there a snubber or surge reducer for a 9012G type pressure switch?

The 9049A26S is a surge suppressor for use in applications with oil, coolants, and hydraulic fluids.  This snubber cannot be used on air or water applications.  There is no suppressor for these types of applications; it will be necessary to move the switch physically away from the pump.

What ports are utilized by PowerChute Network Shutdown and how are they secured?

What ports are utilized by PowerChute Network Shutdown and how are they secured?

PowerChute Network Shutdown 4.x

All supported OS


PowerChute Network Shutdown utilizes 
TCP port 80, 443, 3052, 6547
UDP port 3052

PCNS web interface utilizes port 3052 and 6547.
When logging in over port 3052 a user is redirected to port 6547 to utilize TLS. PCNS supports TLS 1.3 but will accept connections over TLS 1.2. TLS 1.1 and earlier are not supported except for AIX.
Users are required to provide user name and password. A strong password can be configured. 
See Application Note 144 for more information.

For PCNS communications to the NMC
The default port when PCNS registers with the NMC is 80 for HTTP, or 443 for HTTPS. When port 80 is utilize MD5 authentication is used. Do not change the port number within PCNS unless you changed the port being used by your NMC. Optional HTTPS ports are 5000 – 32768

When registering with the NMC PCNS will provide authentication. A user name and an authentication phrase are passed from PCNS Agent to the NMC. The default authentication phrase is admin user phrase. The authentication phrase and user name configured in PCNS Agent and the NMC must match to allow communication.

When PCNS is restarted it will communicate with the NMC using HTTP or HTTPS unless a change is made to pcnsconfig.ini. For more information on pcnsconfig.ini see FAQ FA159757 Also, if Force negotiation is selected on the NMC HTTP or HTTPS will be utilized to check PCNS settings. 

The NMC communicates with PCNS over UDP port 3052. A UDP packet is sent every 25 second to ensure communication between the NMC and PCNS Agent. Also, an Individual Client Notification packet (MACONFIG packet) is sent by the NMC every 100 seconds. See Application Note 20 for more information. The UDP packets use MD5 authentication ensuring that the password is never sent in plain text. 
See Application Note 20 for more information.

PowerChute Business Edition 9.x agent does not launch properly from StruxureWare Central

PowerChute Business Edition 9.x agent does not launch properly from StruxureWare Central

Product Line:
PowerChute Business Edition
StruxureWare Central
StruxureWare Data Center Expert.

All supported OS


By default, the web page for a PowerChute Business Edition (PCBE) agent is launched from StruxureWare Central on port 3052. With PCBE version 9.x , you are redirected to HTTPS port 6547. The launch within StruxureWare does not support the redirect and will not allow the connection to the agent.


To resolve this issue, simply edit the launch settings within Central so that it launches to HTTPS port 6547.

Can a 9012GAR5 be used on water systems?

Can a 9012GAR5  be used on water systems?

Product Line:
Pressure Switches

9012 Pressure Switches

Yes, all components are compatible with water systems. However, salt water may attack standard flange material and may work best with 9013F Form Q. It is important to note that these switches are control rated devices. An interposing starter, or contactor must be used for switching a pump motor . Low level signals to PLCs or computers requires the use of an interposing low level switching relay.


"Failed to Apply Configuration Profile" error when adding Agents to PowerChute Business Edition Server

"Failed to Apply Configuration Profile" error when adding Agents to PowerChute Business Edition Server

PowerChute Business Edition

All support OS

There are several reasons PowerChute Business Edition will return this error.

Reason 1:

If the user name and password given to the PowerChute Business Edition Agent do not match those given to the PowerChute Business Edition Server.


  1. Log into the Server through the Console application and go to the Tools menu and change user name and password. This will only work on PowerChute Business Edition version 6.1 or higher. This will also change the user name and password for all Agents already configured with this Server.

  2. Uninstall the Agent portion of the software and reinstall with a user name and password that matches the Server.

Reason 2:

An unsupported UPS will give this error as well.


  1. Upgrade to a supported UPS model. This can be done through  APC's Trade UPS Program in North America

Reason 3:

No Network communications between the Agent and Server can cause this issue as well. Firewalls or a lack of a proper network configuration can be the cause


  1. If the Server portion is installed on a different system than the Agent, try to ping the Agent's system from the Server's system. If the system cannot be pinged, there is a network issue that must be resolved before PowerChute can apply the configuration profile. To ping another system, simply go to a command prompt and type the following: ping agent_ip where agent_ip is the ip address of the system with the Agent installed.
  2. If the network has a firewall, this can be the source of the communications issue. Make sure ports 3052, 2260, 2160, and 2161 are not blocked. Some Anti-Virus software can block ports and can install a firewall. There have been some cases where Anti-Virus software has had to be stopped or uninstalled and then the Business Edition Agent reinstalled to solve this issue. In most cases, the Anti-Virus software could then be restarted or reinstalled. PCBE ports used and protocols: 2161 - TCP & UDP 2160 - TCP 2260 - TCP & UDP 3052 - TCP Security used: logging into agent through server SSL logging into server through console MD5
  3. If the system where the Agent is installed has more than 1 network card, the PowerChute Business Edition Server may not be able to locate the Agent. If this is the case, check TCP/IP properties for it's binding order. Make sure the IP of the card you are adding to the configuration is the first item in the TCP/IP binding order.
  4. Make sure TCP/IP is installed properly and the network card is bound
  5. If the system does not have a network card or is not on a network, it will be necessary to install Microsofts Loop-Back Adapter. This will allow you to type in place of the actual system IP. The loop back adapter must be installed on systems that are not on a network if the Agent is to be accessed through a browser as well.
  6. A DMZ (demilitarized zone) is similar to a firewall. In this type of situation, the Agent and Server may not be able to achieve 2 way communications. If there is an issue such as this, you can open the same ports as listed for a firewall but we recommend simply making sure the Agent and Server reside on the same side of the DMZ.

Reason 4:

If you are using a USB Smart UPS unit and the USB cable is connected to the keyboard hub or an external hub.


Disconnect the USB cable from the keyboard hub or external hub and connect it directly to the root hub in the PC

Reason 5:

The Agent service is not running.


As above, try to connect to the Agent through it's web user interface. If you cannot connect, the Agent may not be running. Make sure the APC PBE Agent service is started and set to automatic.
