        Which SmartSlot accessories are supported by the Galaxy 3500 (G3500) UPS?


        Which SmartSlot accessories are supported by the Galaxy 3500 (G3500) UPS?

        Product Line
        • Data Center and Facility 3 Phase UPS
          • MGE Galaxy 3500 models

        • All serial numbers
        • All firmware versions unless otherwise noted


        The list below details what accessories are supported by the Galaxy 3500 UPS (G3500) and what measures must be taken to utilize them.


        • Network Management Card 2 - AP9630/30CH, AP9631/31CH

        The APC Network Management Card 2 SKUs AP9630/30CH and AP9631/31CH can be utilized with the G3500 UPS. The Network Management Card must be loaded with the sumx firmware application 5.0.3 or higher. The AP9631 ships with the G3500 UPS.

        The AP9810 Relay I/O dongle can also used with the AP9631 Network Management Card 2 to have dry contact functionality - (2) inputs, (1) output per AP9810 with a maximum of (2) AP9810 that can be attached.

        • Building Management Card (BMS) - AP9622

        The AP9622 BMS card is supported in the G3500 UPS. It can utilize some of the 3-phase Symmetra bit register/modbus map, which can be found on the AP9622 product page, but other registers may not report properly if you are not in a 3:3 configuration.


        • Dry Contact I/O SmartSlot Card - AP9610 or AP9613

        The AP9610 or AP9613 is supported in the G3500 UPS. For AP9610 (or AP9613 utilizing dip switch configurations only) you must use Configuration 2, as mentioned in knowledge base FA156152.  Alternatively, Configuration 4 and the onboard configuration utility can be utilized on the AP9613.

        Unfortunately, if you use the included APC accessory terminal screw board with the AP9610, the front panel/UPS door will not close correctly. In order to avoid this issue, there are a few options you can look into.

        1.) Purchase a right angle DB25 Male-Female interconnection

        2.) Utilize an APC AP9600 single slot SmartSlot expansion chassis and extend the cable to the AP9600 with a 940-1500 serial cable. This communication cable can be routed so that the chassis can sit on top of the UPS. If using an AP9600, the NMC AP9630 or AP9631 should be in the AP9600 expansion chassis and the AP9610 should be in the SmartSlot in the UPS frame. This is the proper installation order per knowledge base article ID FA156034. (Note: This required installation order also applies to AP9613.)

        3.) Use an AP9604 SmartSlot triple chassis which comes with a 10' cable. This communication cable can be routed so that the chassis can sit on top of the UPS. Also, if do not want to use the included accessory board, you can make your own cable, using the pinout in the AP9610 user's guide and avoid buying a right angle 25 pin extension cable.

        4.) If using both an NMC and AP9610 or AP9613, put both the put the AP9610 or AP9613 and the NMC2 in the AP9604 triple chassis, referencing the correct installation order mentioned in knowledge base article ID FA156034 to ensure proper function of both the NMC2 and AP9610 or AP9613.

        • SmartSlot Serial Interface Expander - AP9607, AP9607CB, AP9624

        The SmartSlot serial interface expander can be used with the G3500 to supply two dedicated simple signaling ports, such as for use with an AS/400 or an IBM iSeries, if required.

        The Interface Expander 2 (AP9624) is also supposed by the G3500 and was released in mid-2014 to replace AP9607 and AP9607CB.


        AP9613 Dry Contact I/O SmartSlot Card "Legacy Fault" Definition


        What do the Legacy Faults refer to within the AP9613 Dry Contact I/O SmartSlot Configuration Utility?

        Product Line

        • UPS Device Management
          • AP9613 - Dry Contact I/O SmartSlot Card
        • All serial numbers
        • All firmware versions


        These legacy fault options carry over from the AP9610 Relay I/O SmartSlot Card and the three configurations available with that older card for output #6. These are intended to be configurable for the AP9613 as well, especially for environments with both AP9610 and AP9613 cards. Further explanation below.


        The "Fault Legacy" items within the Dry Contact I/O SmartSlot Card Configuration Utility refer to the "legacy" configurations available for Output #6 in Configuration #1, #2, or #3 with the from the older AP9610 Relay I/O SmartSlot Card. Using Fault Legacy 1, 2, or 3 should be used if you are trying to mimic the behavior of the older AP9610 Output #6 in either configuration #1, #2, or #3. 

        Since AP9610 is only supported older style UPS-Link model units, legacy faults (which may be different across different UPS models) only work with those types of units where as "Fault" should be more used with newer Micro-link UPSs where you do not necessarily want to mimic output #6's behavior on AP9610.

        Attached to this knowledge base are the fault definitions used by either UPS-Link or Micro-link style UPSs respectively that would be considered Fault.

        Figure 1: Available Configurations from the discontinued AP9610 Relay I/O SmartSlot Card.

        Some examples of Legacy Faults may include an overload, hardware bypass, or battery charger failure - as defined above.

        Review the FAQ listed below.

        What UPS Network Management Card is compatible with the Dry Contact I/O Accessory?
        The Dry Contact I/O Accessory is compatible with the AP9631 UPS Network Management Card 2 with Environmental Monitoring. The AP9635 UPS Network Management Card 2, exclusive to the Symmetra PX 250/500kVA and certain Galaxy units also have some support.

        Is the Dry Contact I/O Accessory included with the AP9631 UPS Network Management Card 2?
        No, the AP9810 Dry Contact I/O Accessory is sold separately.

        Does the AP9810 Dry Contact I/O Accessory replace the older AP9610 Relay I/O SmartSlot Card or newer AP9613 Dry Contact I/O SmartSlot Card?
        No, the AP9610 Relay I/O SmartSlot Card, if available, is still an option for supported UPSs but is now discontinued and replaced by the AP9613 Next Generation Relay I/O Card.

        What are the differences between the AP9810 Dry Contact I/O Accessory and AP9613Dry Contact I/O SmartSlot Card?
        The AP9810 is a add-on Dry Contact I/O Accessory which can be used in conjunction with the AP9631 UPS Network Management Card or the AP9613 Dry Contact I/O SmartSlot Card. The AP9610 and AP9613 are standalone Dry Contact I/O SmartSlot Cards.

         Accessory or Device



        (1) Dry Contact I/O Accessory (AP9810) with UPS NMC 2 (AP9631)



        (2) Dry Contact I/O Accessory (AP9810) with UPS NMC 2 (AP9631)*



        Dry Contact I/O SmartSlot Card (AP9613)



        Dry Contact I/O SmartSlot Card (AP9613) with (1) Dry Contact I/O Accessory (AP9810) 7 6
        Dry Contact I/O SmartSlot Card (AP9613) with (2) Dry Contact I/O Accessory (AP9810) 8 8

        If you are using PowerChute Network Shutdown (PCNS) and if your NMC2 has two universal I/O ports, you must connect the Dry Contact I/O Accessory to Universal I/O Port 2. PCNS only supports one Dry Contact I/O Accessory yet you can still have two connected at a time - PCNS only sees the second one.

        What is the maximum length Ethernet cable that can be used between the AP9810 and AP9631 UPS NMC?
        1000 feet

        How do I approach the configuration of this accessory via the Network Management Card web interface?

        The AP9810 accessory configuration (called Control Policy) is located in two places within the web interface.

        For firmware v5.X.X

        1.) The Environmental Tab contains default relay states and is where you can control the relays at any given time.

        2.) Click on the UPS Tab->Control Policy subheading and that is where you can map UPS control actions that pertain to the relay states, etc. Please refer to these instructions for configuration.

        3.) The config.ini configuration file items that pertain to the Device Control Policy begin with DCP. For example, DCP0343_2A=ups -c On, -rc 2 close.

        For firmware v6.X.X

        1.) Click on the Configuration->Universal I/O->Input Contacts or Output relays respectively which contains default relay states and is where you can control the relays at any given time.

        2.) Click on Configuration->Universal I/O->Control Policy and that is where you can map UPS control actions that pertain to the relay states, etc. Please refer to these instructions for configuration.

        3.) The config.ini configuration file items that pertain to the Device Control Policy begin with DCP. For example, DCP0343_2A=ups -c On, -rc 2 close.


        Note: The Network Management Card 2 must have application firmware (sumx, sy, sy3p, sypx) v5.1.5 or greater to work properly. For details on upgrading the Management Card 2 firmware, see the user’s guide on the Network Management Card Utility CD or on the APC Web site (www.apc.com).
