PortServer TS8/16 MEI connection to APC UPS Serial - what Port profile to use??.

For a DIGI PortServer TS8/16 MEI, I’m trying to setup a serial connection from the DIGI to an APC UPS serial port to access the console to remotely power cycle devices. What Port Profile settings should I choose and what are the settings. I have tried the “Power Management” profile and it does not detect APC. I also tried the manual approach and that doesn’t work either. Please help.

The following knowledge base article should help:


The link provides a generic setup instruction (I saw this page already) and doesn’t mention any guidance to what profile to select for connecting to the serial port of an APC UPS. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

The “printer” profile will work for this.
