LinkStation LS-WVLF - Sync With local UPS
« on: April 04, 2019, 09:51:46 pm »
I've tried to search in this forum for an answer but have not found it yet.

I have a LS-WVLF57 Linkstation, and recently upgraded the UPS to which it is connected to an Eaton UPS with a USB port.

Connecting my laptop to the UPS with USB cable and the Eaton software I can see the status of the UPS etc.

However, when I connect it to the Linkstation, the option in Power Management to "synchronize with UPS connected to this LinkStation" is Greyed out.

Has anyone had any success connecting a UPS to this Linkstation model using USB?

I am running Firmware version 1.73.  Last time I tried to upgrade the Firmware on this device is killed my Raid Array, and I had to recover from a backup, so I'm not that keen to try it again in the vague hope that the option becomes available.

Thanks for the reply.
The link to your German example gives me a 404 error.

Are you saying that you can install apcupsd into the LinkStation OS and then detect and get a signal from APC UPS's?
Sounds good. 
Any idea it it could work with an Eaton UPS?

I would love to know what signal the LinkStation is looking for on the USB port that would enable the "synchronize with UPS connected to this LinkStation" radio button.
I would have thought it's a Really simple protocol from the UPS to be compatible with as many different devices as possible.  It used to always be serial afterall.

the proper link is:

He's put together a guide for using the Debian installer available for many of these devices to setup and configure Debian to replicate many of the functions normally handled by the Buffalo firmware OS. Among other things this allows you to use any UPS which has Debian support rather than just the ones supported by Buffalo.

His guide references the installer images for the LS200, LS400, T1000 and TS3000 devices hosted on my github page but the process is the same for the older devices which are hosted by Debian.

In the case of the LS-WVL, Debian hosts the installer images here:
