Configuring Load Segments
Load segments are sets of receptacles that can be controlled by the Dell UPS Management Software,
the Dell Network Management Card, or through the LCD display, providing an orderly shutdown and
startup of your equipment. For example, during a power outage, you can keep key pieces of equipment
running while you turn off other equipment. This feature allows you to save battery power.
Each Dell Online Rack model has two configurable load segments. See “Identifying the UPS Rear
Panels” on page 15 for the load segment locations.
To control the load segments with power management software, see your power management software
manual for details (refer to the Software CD or www.dell.com for the latest information).
