Starting and configuring the SITOP monitor
Windows boot up
The SITOP monitor has to be started by Windows automatically during booting. A new value
has to be entered for the SITOP monitor under the key below in the Windows registry:
A script file, sitop.reg, is located in the E:\SITOP directory. The required key is entered into
the registry automatically if this file is executed.
The SITOP monitor is started automatically once the PCU is restarted. The next installation
step is to configure the monitor.
The SITOP monitor must not be started via the Windows Autostart directory.
Windows XP PCUBasesoftware, 07.04.00 or higher for USB interface
SITOP software is available for download from: www.ad.siemens.de/sitop
To enable this, the SITOP software must be copied to the E:\SITOP directory set up on
the PCU 50. This directory already contains PCU 50 tools required for shutdown on the
SITOP UPS. If this directory does not exist in an older version of the PCU Basesoftware,
it must be created so that it will be compatible for any subsequent updating of the PCU
Installation is described in the relevant SITOP documentation. The documentation is part
of the SITOP software download package.
