equinux USA Inc. has announced the release of APC Tracker. The software is designed to work in conjunction with APC UPS-equipped network servers to turn off Macs during power failures.
APC Tracker listens for signals from a network server working directly off an APC-made uninterruptible power supply (UPS). When it senses a power failure, APC Tracker is then able to turn off the Macintosh properly. The software utilizes APCUPSd in order to work.
Available as a 30 day demo, APC Tracker is downloadable from equinux’s Web site. The software requires Mac OS 8.5 or better, including Mac OS X. The software costs US$39.90 for a single user to register — discounts for multi-user licenses are also available.
