What do the Legacy Faults refer to within the AP9613 Dry Contact I/O SmartSlot Configuration Utility?
UPS Device Management
AP9613 - Dry Contact I/O SmartSlot Card
All serial numbers
All firmware versions
These legacy fault options carry over from the AP9610 Relay I/O SmartSlot Card and the three configurations available with that older card for output #6. These are intended to be configurable for the AP9613 as well, especially for environments with both AP9610 and AP9613 cards. Further explanation below.
The "Fault Legacy" items within the Dry Contact I/O SmartSlot Card Configuration Utility refer to the "legacy" configurations available for Output #6 in Configuration #1, #2, or #3 with the from the older AP9610 Relay I/O SmartSlot Card. Using Fault Legacy 1, 2, or 3 should be used if you are trying to mimic the behavior of the older AP9610 Output #6 in either configuration #1, #2, or #3.
Since AP9610 is only supported older style UPS-Link model units, legacy faults (which may be different across different UPS models) only work with those types of units where as "Fault" should be more used with newer Micro-link UPSs where you do not necessarily want to mimic output #6's behavior on AP9610.
Attached to this knowledge base are the fault definitions used by either UPS-Link or Micro-link style UPSs respectively that would be considered Fault.

Some examples of Legacy Faults may include an overload, hardware bypass, or battery charger failure - as defined above.
