How to Install PowerAlert NMS (Windows)

System Requirements:

  • Pentium 4 CPU
  • 256 MB RAM
  • Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0_3 or above
  • TCP/IP (IPv4) network connection
  • Available USB or serial port (optional)
  1. Cable Connection (optional): Using a USB or serial (DB9) cable, connect a communications port of your UPS system to a corresponding communications port of your computer. If your computer will be backed up by redundant UPS systems, repeat this cable connection procedure for the second UPS system.

    If you are installing PowerAlert version 12.04.0045 or before, proceed with Step 2. If not, proceed to Step 3.

  2. Java Software Installation: Install Java Runtime Environment 6 or above. A Java software installer is included on the PowerAlert CD-ROM bundled with select UPS systems. Insert the CD-ROM into your computer's optical drive and follow the on-screen prompts to install Java Runtime Environment before proceeding to step 3. If a PowerAlert CD-ROM is not included with your UPS system, the latest version of Java Runtime Environment, along with installation instructions, is available at www.java.com.

  3. CD-ROM or Installer Download: If a PowerAlert CD-ROM is bundled with your UPS system and you have not already done so, insert it into your computer's optical drive and proceed to Step 4. If a CD-ROM is not bundled with your UPS system, download the latest PowerAlert installer from www.tripplite.com/products/power-alert/.

  4. PowerAlert Software Installation: Follow the on-screen prompts to install your PowerAlert software.

    Note: If a previous version of PowerAlert is already installed on your computer, the PowerAlert installer will attempt to uninstall it before installing the later version. However, Tripp Lite recommends uninstalling the previous version manually prior to installation of the later version.
