Powering the Com.X via an Uninterrupted Power Supply

Com.X products ship with a UPS service that supports standard USB-connected UPS products. When enabled the service will do the following:

  • Monitor the UPS Report in /var/log/syslog when mains power goes down or is restored.
  • Cleanly shut down the system when battery level is low.
  • Power off the UPS at the end of shut down

The UPS will automatically switch on again (after some short delay) when
power is restored. If present, it is recommended to connect applicable ADSL
routers and related network switches to the same UPS as the Com.X.
