The on-battery runtime of most uninterruptible power sources is relatively short but sufficient to start a standby power source or properly shut down the protected equipment. The CFA provides USB connectivity for most standard UPS battery units. In the event of a power outage, the CFA will run on battery power until a low battery signal is received. At that time, the CFA will execute automatic power-fail shutdown.

The UPS settings can be found under System > Settings. To scan for a battery unit, select UPS and click Rescan.

When the device has been found, the CFA can monitor the power status. If desired, select Shutdown on power failure.

When your options have been selected, apply the settings and close the window.
